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 which 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 a decorative element, but as a directional map for the hotel’s lobby which leads guests through the space and multiplies the warm lights of the candles into a myriad of vibrant glows.
