In the exceptional context of Parcours VIP for the fourth edition of Révélation – International Biennal of Fine Craft and Creation’s “Hors-Les-Murs”, maison parisienne presented the carefully curated exhibition « Effets Matières: Simone Pheulpin and Guests. » The exhibition highlighted the exceptional creations of this celebrated French artist, displayed from the Palace’s ornate lobby, all the way to one of the hotel’s Signature Suites.
