Pierre Frey’s furniture workshops realized the seats that the famous French creator Philippe Starck designed to go with its modernist and warm decoration of the Brach Hotel.
In the 16th district of Paris, the Brach is, according to Starck, “a place of life and culture rather than an hotel”. Inside a wide building from the 70s of more than 7000 square meters, the designer was invited to create freely a very original space.
The decoration of the hotel conveys a warm and friendly atmosphere. The place is full of references to art and travel. Warm colours, natural and rough materials such as wood, leather, marble or concrete, are associated with a selection of art objects from the modernist, dada and surrealist styles.
The seats designed by Starck – including 30′s-inspired bridges, chairs, and armchairs – have all been produced by the expert craftsmen of Pierre Frey’s workshops. Their geometric lines carefully assembled in brushed oak perfectly match with the whole generous, inventive and cheerful place.
