Exit

Between the Champs Elysees and the Arc de Triomphe, in the so-called Parisian Golden Triangle, Hotel Vernet has recently reopened with a completely new guise. The hotel occupies the space of a 1913 building, and on the occasion of its one hundred years anniversary it was decided to renovate the interior with a project by the designer François Champsaur. Contemporary furnishings and works of art furnish both the common areas and the 50 rooms of this exclusive boutique hotel. The Vernet, more like a collector’s house than an accommodating structure, has a strong and contemporary character but doesn’t forget the past. To appreciate it, just go for lunch or dinner at the inside restaurant. The glass ceiling, enriched by floral decorations typical of Art Nouveau, was designed by Gustave Eiffel himself. It is a “hidden masterpiece” by the most famous engineer of France, to be discovered by looking upwards at the sky between mouthfuls.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
