|Le French Design|
HOTEL by Lina Ghotmeh
The Hémicycle range comprises an armchair, settee and finally a conversation seat to help one always find good company. Each seat shares the common feature of particularly restrained dimensions, despite its undeniable character: it could just as well find itself arranged around vast reception rooms, as it might help optimise more constrained spaces.
Its semi-circular shape, which seems to be able to carry on and on into infinity, gives it a personality which invites conviviality. Here, comfort is twinned with the refinement of the superposed backrests which give it its strong character. One sees here Philippe Nigro’s very personal style signature, always seeking interlocking shapes and playing with customization.
Its slightly low-lying backrest gives it the very natural comfort of a lumbar cushion. The palette of fabrics and leathers enables it to be given a unique, sensual finish with the combination of materials and colours even suggesting an illusion of scales to some.
