Le Pavillon de la Reine by Didier Benderli

April 11, 2018

Le Pavillon de la Reine: Ideally situated in the heart of the Marais in Paris resides the four star hotel Le Pavillon de la Reine. The renowned interior architect Didier Benderli showcases his expertise as he unveils his designs for the new suites.

Didier Benderli opted for orange and soft yellow tones combined with black and white accents for these prestigious rooms. The objective of Kerylos Interieurs is to bring a personal  touch to any space and create environments that are both aesthetic and functional.

Kerylos Interieurs, created by Didier Benderli designs and exicutes interior architecture projects for both hospitality professionals and private clients. The agency revisits a certain classicism, to confront the elements, striving to make them harmonise, to shift them to play with their shapes and their colours in order to not just bring memories, but alos to create them.

Kerylos Intérieurs was founded by Didier Benderli to manage hospitality and restoration interior design projects as well as private residences. Kerylos Intérieurs strives to design personalised attractive and functional spaces.

The agency endeavours to revisit a form of classicism, challenging different elements and bringing them together in an unexpected way, playing around with shapes and colours in a way that makes them uniquely memorable.

Thoughtfully selected materials, mediums, shapes and colours draw on emotion and understanding, merging together to seduce and comfort. Their projects are inspired by a site’s history or created from scratch staying true to architectural form and an attention to detail.

It’s this obsession with detail which clearly influenced Didier Benderli’s choices when he was deliberating whether to study architecture, art history at the Sorbonne or theatrical set design. He completed his training in Brazil where he developed his attraction to light, his taste for natural materials such as wood and stone and oversaw his first design projects.

His love for the countries of Brazil and Italy can still be seen in the influence of his designs today. Didier Benderli’s eclectic style doesn’t settle for a simple or stereotypical understanding. The bespoke plays an essential part in his work.

He uses a delicate touch to form a sophisticated yet restrained overall appearance, employing an almost invisible order in which it is clear that the elements and colours are neither isolated or there by chance.

“The work mustn’t be too visible, it has to be clear without it all feeling like a combination of formulas”, he likes to say. “Where possible, I try not to hide the potential that the space gives me.”

His listening skills and deep respect for both the space and the owner’s personality, which he hopes to interpret, create a Proustian sense that he calls the “memory effect.”

He is passionate about contemporary art and enjoys being surrounded by both well-known (Philippe Anthonioz, the Campana brothers etc.) and up-and-coming artists, who possess a creative energy and drive from which he draws inspiration.

Didier ensures to honour the volumes of all spaces he works within, making them the focal point, and never forgetting that without them even the most refined decoration would be in vain. The maxim of his approach consists of creating a personalised site based on the architecture of its original building, and to always treat it with the utmost of respect.
