Grand Baie, Mauritius – 2012
This 19-room boutique hotel has a contemporary aesthetic in front of one of the most beautiful lagoons in Mauritius at Grand Baie. Breaking with the traditional codes of the tropical hotel industry, the interiors were conceived as a poetic and metaphorical journey around the theme of the sea. Everything created was tailor-made. Stucco wave walls with velvet sofas or mosaic tiled floors. The electro-luminescent fiber chandeliers overlook the restaurant and the ocean.
I imagined walls mimicking waves, sofas with shapes polished by the winds, floors like the surf on the sand, floating chandeliers like majestic jellyfish. Everything is a reflection of the underwater world.
