The master behind the interior design of 45 Park Lane is Thierry Despont; New York based architect, curator, artist and designer. Taking inspiration from his own idiosyncratic world of art, curiosity cabinets, astronomy, history, technology, and design, Despont has created a deeply personal living environment that will soon provide the canvas for a collection of contemporary British art. Despont believes that every aspect of a living environment is a reflection of the personality of those that inhabit it. This philosophy extends to his vision for 45 Park Lane, which he designed as if it were a private residence. The London location and intimate size of the hotel define the overall character, while interiors are decorated in a contemporary art deco style of rich dark materials, contrasting with light colours and sensual textures.
