Maison Martin Margiela Hotel Rooms

Maison Martin Margiela has collaborated with Parisian hotel La Maison Champs Élysées to for a redesign of the interiors of the historic part of the hotel. Designed in 1864 and built in 1866, the building originally served as a residence for the Duchess of Rivoli. The collaboration is the result of a competition that was won by Margiela, who is traditionally known for his streamlined sensibilities and innovative tailoring. We have talked about it before, but now we have pictures of the rooms!

The end result aims to seamlessly mix the label’s hyper-modern sensibilities and clean design aesthetic with the buildings’s rich cultural heritage. Among the rooms boasting a Margiela revamp are a restaurant, a smoking room, a bar, reception area, as well as 17 hotel suites. The hotel has said of its new reworking: “Maison Martin Margiela is creating a theatrical environment where reality and trompe-l’oeil blend into a surreal atmosphere. The result is an atypical ambience of different harmonies that coalesce into something new, innovative and simply cool.”
