Inspired by Mickey and Minnie’s adventures in a modern art museum, the living room of this suite has become a “thought bubble” with cartoon characters jumping off the paper into sculptures set in a technicolour space.
The work, an extension of Bertrand Lavier’s Walt Disney Productions series, continues in Le Bristol Paris gardens where three-metre-high brilliantly bright sculptures confront guests amidst the nurtured elegance.
The suite’s salon is designed to resemble the museum in the Disney comics: the floor is swathed in a zingy purple carpet and minimalist modern furniture stands in relief against vivid yellow and green walls. Brilliant sculptures and canvases in pop colours are inspired by the Walt Disney comic strip.
The surprising journey in fiction stops only when you return to the reality of the Paris Suite’s other rooms, which retain their Louis XVI luxurious elegance, a rather surreal contrast.
The hotel offers the Art at Le Bristol package, in which guests can stay two nights in the Suite Paris by Bertrand Lavier, enjoy American breakfast, the wine tasting in exclusive wine cellar and dinner with artist Bertrand Lavier at Epicure restaurant. Other benefits include VIP roundtrip transfer and a private tour of the Bertrand Lavier exhibition at the Galerie kamel mennour, which runs until May 25.
