HENRI is in charge of the home automation installation of the 184 rooms and suites of the emblematic Hotel Lutetia in Paris : lighting management, control of motorized curtains, temperature management...
“We are very proud to have been chosen by the Alrov Group, who trusted us to design and realize the domotic installation of the rooms and suites of the hotel. We measure the privilege and honor we had to work in this mythical establishment and thus become part of its long history.
The result of these 4 years of renovation is sumptuous. As with each of our collaborations, we must underline the superb decoration of Jean-Michel Wilmotte.
This is HENRI’s most important project in recent years. 184 rooms equipped with Crestron technology, including 970 wall-mounted touch screens and 200 iPads.
A large-scale operation conducted with the same philosophy of quality and simplicity that characterizes us, in order to deliver an installation up to luxury standards.” Michael Sherman, Managing Director
Hotel Lutetia is at the heart of Paris History. Inaugurated in 1910 to welcome the prestigious clients of the department store called Le Bon Marché, it was both a witness and actor of the events of the 20th century, mainly between 1938 and 1945.
Sanctuary for the intellectuals and exiled artists, requisitioned building by the Nazi regime, the hotel remains in the memories as the place where deportees and families came after the war to search for their relatives sent to the camps. Pierre Assouline has wonderfully described this period in his novel Lutetia.
Located in an area full of publishing houses, thinkers, writers, the famous hotel of the left bank is a magnificent representative of the beginnings of Art Deco, imposing its presence at the intersection of the rue de Sèvres and the boulevard Raspail, displaying his architectural audacity and the refinement of his ornaments. It attracts great artists such as Gide, Joyce, Hemingway, Malraux, but also Matisse, Picasso, Arman ; some set up here, while others enjoy its bar and restaurant. Since its creation, Hotel Lutetia has never ceased to be a high-spirited place.
While it has just reopened, we are extremely pleased to have contributed to its renovation.
After the Hotel de Crillon, HENRI continues its work in the largest establishments in Paris, with the same requirement of quality, comfort and discretion. We are very proud of this new achievement.
