Within the third arrondissement, in the northern section of Paris’s Marais, Humbert & Poyet designers Emil Humbert and Christophe Poyet have reworked a two-storey apartment of sublime eloquence. The Art Deco stylings of a bygone era primarily inspire the design. Defined by its popularity in the 1920s and 30s and characterised by sleek geometry and form materialised by human ingenuity, it proved a deep well for the designers to draw from.
Apartment Turenne features ornate frames, hardware by I1 Fanale, lighting and suspension by the firm’s in-house Asterios, and decorative furnishings, all of which use noble materials such as marble, terrazzo, wood and brass. “In all of our designs, we think it is important to carefully select the best artisans and craftsmen to keep traditional craftsmanship alive,” Emil says.
