SOUFFLOT

Jean-Philippe Nuel

DESCRIPTION

Soufflot was designed to decorate the superb and unique 32m high Soufflot dome in the old Hôtel-Dieu de Lyon, transformed in 2019 into the Hotel Intercontinental. Interior architect Jean-Philippe Nuel will have needed all his talent to design an armchair and footstool for Ligne Roset which could marry with and be evocative of such specific volumes and forms. Soufflot is in itself a contemporary evocation of the unique space into which it was born, respectfully joining a dialogue between the monastic and the precious, its plain covering offering a contrast with the Lyonnais silk trading houses.
