Maison Martin Margiela Reinvents the Maison Champs-Elysees

The Maison Champs-Elysées is set to reopen in May 2011, and this teaser video gives viewers a glimpse into the metallic-looking renovations designed by Maison Martin Margiela. If you enjoy minimalist techniques and a surreal atmosphere, this Parisian hotel is the ideal getaway.

Maison Martin Margiela was inspired by simplicity and paid attention to every minute detail when designing the newly refurbished interiors. The interior designer claims that he is "creating a theatrical environment where reality and trompe-l’oeil blend into a surreal atmosphere." If the teaser video is any indication of what to expect, guests should prepare for mirrorlike metallic hallways for that perfect last-minute hair toss before heading out for a night on the town.

Although these designs are only set for particular locations throughout the hotel, all visitors are sure to be exposed to and inspired by these postmodern renovations during their stay.
