To celebrate its 10th edition, AD Intérieurs staged a wonderful exhibition in Paris, inviting 13 design and architecture studios to create some original liveable spaces. Among the designers in the spotlight, five names should sound familiar, as they are part of our roster of talents: Bismut & Bismut, Humbert & Poyet, Atelier Tristan Auer, Thierry Lemaire, Pierre Gonalons and Stéphane Parmentier artistic director of Creations Dragonfly. All of them displayed their usual unsurpassed creativity to conceive the most unexpected dreamlike spaces.
Humbert & Poyet’s La Salle de bain Néoclassique – an otherworldly bathroom in brass and marble :
For this year’s theme “Metamorphosis” a bathroom was designed in a neoclassical spirit inspired by the architecture of Palladian villas. The decor’s proportions give the impression of walking into a perfectly symmetrical temple. The strong volumes contrast with the softness of the materials. The arches are ornamented with scales that were carved and metalled. The wall decor surrounds two benches in the center of the space that are covered with velvet. The sculpted bath from a solid block of green marble and the theatrical shower, shaped like a brass cage, are the centrepieces of the space.
