Two French hospitality heavyweights, former Club Med chief
executive Serge Trigano and legendary designer Philippe Starck, paired up to turn
a dilapidated parking garage in the far-from-charming 20th Arrondissement into an impossibly hip 172-room hotel. Starck’s whimsical design
touches are on full display in the lobby, from the gold-and-silver tree-stump
stools and curtains dotted with four-leaf clovers and floating eyes to the
chalkboard ceiling covered with phrases and diagrams.
