Room / Accommodation Types

Domaine des Etangs | Prestige Suite Soleil

The Sun is both colour and light; the only star that shines in the blue sky. A majestic paradox showcased on the bedroom wall with Laurent Grasso’s “Soleil Double”: two brushed brass discs which play with the outdoor light, in contrast with the neighbouring neon which distils light from within. In the bedroom, all the works of art reference the sun, and their colour palettes are inspired by each of its ray. In front of the bed, like an invitation to travel, stands a chest of drawers composed of stacked suitcases by Maarten de Ceulaer.
