Le Meurice, Paris

Le Meurice continues to embrace creativity and places the art of living even more firmly at the centre of its history. Since its creation, Le Meurice has nurtured intimate links with artists. Philippe Starck was chosen to restore Le Meurice’s heritage to its rightful prominence, and in doing so exalt its riches and beauty.

“The new project aims to explore more deeply, and in all possible ways, the surrealist universe that is the life, the structure and the soul of Le Meurice. If God is in details, the devil of surrealism is too. Each shadow, each fall of this place reveals a fertile surprise for the imagination of its inhabitants. Le Meurice is a mental space where everything is poetry, allusion, reference, reflection and diffraction. Where the air is vibrating like a mysterious little music, captivating and friendly. As a spirit, the Meurice is unique.” Ph.S
