Architecturally, the interior of the rooms, almost houses themselves, rises up into a vast, lofty curve reaching 5 metres at the highest point and culminating in a huge picture window.
‘I played around with this mineral curve and I designed an extremely low layout, almost hugging the ground, so that I could expand and enhance as far as possible the sensation of space. There are natural stone floors and textured concrete walls, which bring much-needed freshness while the leather and wood of the furnishings bring warmth.
I took the huge picture windows and hung them with delicate, translucent net which gives some privacy. And yet, as it flutters in the wind, it catches the shadows cast by the nearby trees’.
Once space was mastered, enhanced, put in the spotlight, what was needed was furniture, furnishings... Beds, tables, seating… everything was designed specifically for the Sezz Saint-Tropez, to reflect its image, the core of its identity.
‘I wanted simple, elegant furniture, with a touch of the seaside resort. It had to be light, as if floating in space. Absolutely contemporary, with very clean lines, fine materials not flashy in any way. Furniture which has a clear place in history, in a particular period, and yet one that is timeless’, concludes Christophe Pillet.
