`` 1 hotel with a nose ''

A stone’s throw from Port-Royal in Paris, the Five Hotel, a small design hotel, opened its doors at the end of September, in rue Flatters. Its particularity: to be the first sensory hotel in the capital.

At 3 rue Flatters, all that remains are the walls and the facade of the old guesthouse from the beginning of the 20th century. The Five Hotel is the last born of the imagination of Vincent Basti, the specialist in the renovation of design hotel (the Murano), helped by Marie-Paule Clout, decorator. Nine colors, 5 scents, selected fabrics, works of art on the wall and taste: it is a sensory invitation to well-being. The visitor admires a play of colors and materials on 6 floors and in 24 rooms, including a suite with sauna and another with a suspended bed. At the reception, all dressed in black and white, the customer chooses the color and scent of his room. A choice of nine “trendy” decorative atmospheres: white, black, turquoise, anise, purple, red, gold, orange and taupe. For the “olfactory signatures”, created by the perfumer Diptyque, the scents are available in gourmet, invigorating, relaxing, sensual or natural. The scent will be distilled from a discreet lamp placed on a bedside table in the bedroom. The lazy ones will take the elevator, equipped with a television, to reach their room. But that would be depriving oneself, not only of a little exercise (!), But above all of a graphic staircase, immersed in an American atmosphere, with orange and red carpet (EGE). It is inscribed as the backbone of this high place. Each room number is displayed digitally above the stamped metal doors (PRINT) which also help to give this very “LA” atmosphere. Inside the rooms, often small, the colors and graphics are available from floor to ceiling, including the walls. The lacquer sculptures of Isabelle Emmerique (see slideshow) give the rooms their identity. Sheets and fabrics (Lelièvre, Missoni, Kenzo, ELITIS, Designer’s Guild, Jab) chosen for their delicate touch, are part of the cozy atmosphere of the place. Subtle touch: the romanticism of fiber optics. It sublimates walls or ceilings, by integrating a starry sky with changing colors or that of light points on the bathroom tiles. In the single rooms, it turns into a sculpture of light filaments with incredible charm. Breakfast, served in your room on request, is presented in Gargantua crockery with fine and long shapes, from which the gourmet scents of the pastries from the nearby Monge bakery rise. Smell, sight, touch, taste, hearing (calm!): The Five Hotel calls out to its visitors by offering them a sensory break with unparalleled aesthetics, and puts design within everyone’s reach.

To contribute to the exaltation of the senses, the owners of the premises wanted to give a special place to art, which should not be used as yet another decorative artefact. The lacquer works of the artist Isabelle Emmerique, are so many unique signatures that give their identity to the pieces in which they are found. By surprising shapes, inspired by a detail or a movement of the place, the sculptures are perfectly integrated into the ambient aestheticism. Arrived at the lacquer because fallen in love with its strong smell of turpentine (!), Isabelle Emmerique reconciles this art with our time. It subtly combines resolutely contemporary shapes and colors, while being inspired by Japanese and African atmospheres or traditions. She thus creates an artistic bridge between East and West and between past and present. [www.emmerique.com]
