Studio MTX at Invisible Collection Penthouse

Stories Destinations Studio MTX at Invisible Collection Penthouse

We invited Studio MTX to present their bespoke creations in a stunning New York setting above the clouds. The famed specialty creator from Chanel's Métiers d'art designed site-specific pieces, showcasing their unique savoir faire.

Design connoisseurs are familiar with the concept of couture architecture, special crafts and know-how honed for decades in the realm of haute couture and transferred into the world of interior decoration. A savoir-faire that Chanel’s Métiers d’art such as Goossens, Lesage Intérieurs, Lemarié and Studio MTX excel at, working in their ateliers housed at le19M. To mark our longstanding collaboration with these revered houses we invited our partner Studio MTX to showcase some bespoke pieces in our exceptional penthouse overlooking Central Park. In the spectacular 600m² space entirely appointed with iconic furniture pieces from Invisible Collection’s star designers, Studio MTX introduced four bespoke works, beautifully staged and incorporated in the décor.  In the living room, the plunging view over Central Park is filtered through the delicate ‘Leaves’ panels with their translucent weave and evanescent materiality, presented in a blue-green gradation that contrasts elegantly with the metallic pieces in brushed brass that highlight the design. Suspended in front of the penthouse’s bay windows, three-dimensional metal weavings, a contemporary reinterpretation of a classic savoir-faire, play against the remarkable cityscape in the background. 

The dining room features the grand circular mirror ‘Séquence’. Ribbons and metal tubes have been woven onto a sheet of polished, laser-cut stainless steel, creating a highly original effect on the mirror’s surface for a piece that is as functional as it is decorative. In the master bedroom, the 2-metre-long ‘Coda’ panoramic mirror borrows from both the art of cabinetmaking and the modernity of digital milling. Two hundred and fifty pale gold galvanised tubes, slipped onto twisted cords, sketch out a rhythmic melody of metallic shimmering over a coloured partition. Mathieu Bassée, Artistic Director at Studio MTX, attended the two-day event to meet with Invisible Collection’s community of professionals and design enthusiasts and introduce the company’s exceptional savoir-faire and the infinite creative possibilities of embroidery for interior design. This was also an opportunity to revisit the spectacular Penthouse that has become our second home in New York City.  

Located at 111 West 57th Street and spanning 6,512 sq ft, the duplex penthouse sits on some of the most coveted real estate in the city perched on top of the Steinway Tower, one of the world’s thinnest skyscrapers. Designed by Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and his studio Banda Property, this stunning abode above the clouds is a feat of subdued opulence and modern chic.  Working hand in hand with Banda and our star designers, we have crafted bespoke pieces that are a testament to the heights one can reach when you put together the best. The breathtaking view over Central Park served as our inspiration, with the city’s fast-paced, loud mood providing the backdrop for a setting that whispers sophistication and softly announces a new era of quiet luxury. Invisible Collection Penthouse is open for visitation by appointment. While we look forward to welcoming you soon in our gallery above the clouds, take now a peek inside with our co-founder Isabelle Dubern-Mallevays. 

Studio MTX

Founded in the late 1930s, Montex Haute Couture embroidery workshop created Studio MTX in 2013 to open up a new field of expression in embroidery: interior design. By moving embroidery from clothing into space, a new savoir-faire emerges, drawing on the vocabulary of traditional embroidery to develop its own language. The thread becomes a cable, riveting borders on couture, the sequin evolves into a thermolacquered aluminium module. The Studio offers decorators and interior designers hitherto unseen materials born from the unique combination of techniques from different fields of the applied arts including embroidery, weaving, tapestry and leatherwork.
