Andrée Putman

Andrée Putman, a ” national living treasure” as former Minister of Culture Jack Lang puts it, is finally in the spotlight at the city hall.

Known for the eclecticism of her projects as well as for her elegant yet sober style, Putman has been working as an interior architect and designer for the last 30 years. Recognised in America before being welcome by French critics, this is the first time Parisians can enjoy an Andree Putman’s retrospective.
Twenty years ago, she conceived the first boutique hotel, the Morgan. She was also the one to open a new path for modern design, reinstating the importance of such major designers as Eileen Gray, Robert Mallet Stevens and Jean Michel Frank. Since then, Putman’s eclecticism has led her to embrace projects as diverse as the Guggenheim Museum, the Azzedine Alaia and Karl Lagerfield boutique, the interior of Air France’s Concorde. Lately she reinterpreted Louis Vuitton’s classic steamer bag and designed Peter Greenaway movie set The pillow book.
Today, the designer’s elegant and bold style is known throughout the world, from Los Angeles to Hong-Kong, where the new hotel THE Putman reveals a reception on the last floor so that no one misses the incredible view.
When asked to describe her style, Andrée said “the perfect balance between discipline and revolt.”
At CheckyourRoom, we offer one of the designer’s VIP suites at the Pershing Hall in Paris. You can check the structured and minimalist room design on our website.
