London-based interior design studio Saar Zafrir Design has unveiled its first Parisian hospitality project, the ReMIX Hotel, a 4-star hotel on the Rive Droite in Paris, which opened this month. Commissioned by Schroder Real Estate to completely redesign the existing property, Saar Zafrir Design has worked to transport guests back in time with a colorful and nostalgic interior reminiscent of the 1980s.
The hotel’s concept revolves around codes of music, with 80s hit “Forever Young” by Alphaville manifesting as the “soundtrack” to the hotel’s design, remixed with modern day version by Jay-Z & Mr. Hudson. The significance of the song has determined the entire narrative for the hotel, which emanates a mischievous, playful energy mixed with nostalgic 80s vibes and design references. With original memorabilia from the era scattered throughout and an amalgamation of contrasting colors, textures and unique, custom furnishings, Saar Zafrir Design has reworked the essence of the 80s tune into a modern day design concept.
