National Arts and Crafts Hotel – Paris, France

Following the success of Hotel Bachaumont, fashion magnate Samy Marciano has finally opened his second property in a Hausmannian chunk on Rue Saint-Martin, where neighbourhoods Sentier and Le Marais meet. Designed by Raphael Navot – the man behind David Lynch’s Club Silencio – the 70-room bolt-hole takes subtle cues from the nearby Musée des Arts et Métiers, an institution dedicated to invention, science and technology before mass industrial production.
