Padded chauffeuse, covered with moire Napoleon III fabric from Burger.
The pavilion library is a place to relax featuring a central alcove outlined by a banquette which is a reminder of a seat from the Napoleon III French era. It is made to measure and covered in a moire fabric whose random reflexions act as an echo to the cracked gold leaf shelf.
The space is an invitation to contemplation, concentration, reading and conversations under the pergola.
The atmosphere is refined, subtle and sensorial. One's gaze is galvanised by the different effects of the mirrored dome reflecting images of mobile actos and inanimate objects.
