In the heart of one of the most famous, luxurious and elegant quarter of Paris, the 5-star hotel La Clef des Champs Elysees features a glamorous suspended WOOD—SKIN ceiling designed by the renowned architect Jean-Philippe Nuel.
Realized with a mirrored finish, the suspended ceiling reflects the light of the surrounding space to generate a stunning contrast with the Neoclassical style of the building itself.
This 13-meter-long Tailor Made ceiling seems to float thanks to a special frame that hangs from the ceiling from just three anchors. WOOD—SKIN’s weight of only 2.5 kilograms per square meter made it possible to install this suspended element without stressing the building’s centuries-old structural slabs. The result functions not only as a decorative element but as a directional map for the hotel’s lobby which leads guests through space and multiplies the warm lights of the candles into a myriad of vibrant glows.
