CVL’s Art déco Earth wall light at the 5* hotel Les Roches Blanches


The hotel Les Roches Blanches in Cassis : an exceptional place where CVL’s know-how is showcased

It was for the complete renovation project of the 5-star palace Les Roches Blanches in Cassis that CVL was selected by the Parisian architectural firm Kappel. The architect and decorator, Monika Kappel, was entrusted with the project of restoring the 2,400 m2 hotel inspired by its Art Deco heritage. Built in 1887 facing the majestic Cap Canaille cliff, the building anchored in the rocks was first a mansion, then turned into a hotel in the early 1920s. Embodying the French way of life, it enjoyed its moment of glory until the 1950s. Winston Churchill, then Edith Piaf both lived there. Bought by customers who fell in love with the place, the hotel Les Roches Blanches, which owes its name to the limestone rocks of the creeks, reopened its doors in 2019. Passionate about decorative arts, our client succeeded in reinventing a luxurious and refined décor for this haven of peace. For its interior decoration, it subtly combines historical references, custom-made furniture and contemporary lighting, where the Earth Radian wall lamp fits in naturally.

The Art Deco Earth Radian wall lamp in the rooms and suites of the Roches Blanches hotel

It was the Art Deco touch of the Earth Radian wall lamp that caught Monika Kappel’s eye. It perfectly embodies the style of the Roaring Twenties to adorn the hotels’ 36 rooms and suites with light. Sobriety and elegance above all! The luminous heart of Earth Radian set with an extremely fine openwork metal reminiscent of the rays of the sun diffuses a beautiful and soft ambient light. This original design, imagined by Emilie Cathelineau (CVL’s internal designer) coupled with the brass material contributes to the Art Deco soul desired by the architect. Depending on the contrast of the colors chosen to decorate the rooms, you will find the Earth Radian wall lamp in different finishes, sometimes in satin brass, sometimes in satin graphite and always installed on the headboard. Games of shadow and light where the latter escapes from the fine cut-out structure, like a luminous sculpture!

From half-light to wooden lattice, the Earth wall lamp offers ideas for various compositions for all tertiary architecture projects in hotels, cafés and restaurants. Earth Mandala, Earth Palm, Earth Sun or Earth Turtle combine to bring even more originality to your spaces. If you are looking for XXL lights, the Atmos large wall lamp series completes the Earth wall lamp family. On the same principle of concentric discs, the large openwork crown of approximately 80 cm in diameter (35 cm for Earth Radian) will surprise. Atmos will not leave customers indifferent !
