Back in Maison et Objet Paris 2014, design furniture brand BRABBU got an exclusive interview with french designer Jean-Philippe Nuel. By then, it was an opportunity for thousands of design lovers to get to know the man behind the inspiration. If you missed that chance, today Paris Design Agenda gives you look over the best interior design projects conceived by Jean-Philippe Nuel.
Jean-Philippe Nuel is one of the most famous interior architects in the world for its hotel’s conceptions. He works worldwide with all the biggest luxe international chains (Baccarat Hotel in Dubai, Taj Hotel resort in India, Hôtels Dieu Intercontinental in Lyon and Marseille in France, and others), as well as on the design of hotels’ shops (the Grand Balcon in Toulouse, Jiva Hill Park Hôtel near Geneva, the Canberra in Cannes, the Général and the Duo in Paris).
He has a true passion for hotels architecture and interiors decoration, because of their unique identities, and building’s architecture within local environment. In his own words: “I try to give a unique identity to each hotel and this identity depends a lot on the place where the hotel is built, the environment, the city and the neighborhood”.
Above the Vieux-Port and facing the basilica of Notre-Dame de la Garde, is the Hôtel-Dieu. The mineral character of the city and that of the building itself, with its façade in stone from nearby Cassis, as well as its position opening onto the Mediterranean sea, were the inspiration for the interior decoration. Here is the lobby at Hôtel Dieu, designed by Mr. Nuel.
Le Cinq Codet developed from a daring idea: transforming a former France Telecom exchange from the 1930s into a hotel, with a decor that is part elegant domestic environment, part art-collector’s loft. Another beautiful interior design by Nuel.
