Lema furnishes iconic Hôtel Lutetia in Paris


Weekend in Paris? A special 5 star hotel is waiting for you on the Rive Gauche.

Following a complete refurbishment that took more than four years and had a total cost of more than 200 million euros, the iconic Hôtel Lutetia, a meeting point for writers and artists since 1910, has officially reopened its doors in Paris Saint Germain arrondissement. 

A prestigious project enriched by new furniture and structural fittings provided by Lema: the Italian company, international leader for large-scale hospitality and residential projects, has signed an exclusive turn-key project supervised by Lema Contract, that supplied the fittings for the 175 rooms and the Suite named after Josephine Baker, developing for every room a bespoke solution that could unite the aesthetic needs of the Wilmotte project with the historical value of the building, integrating technical systems, security systems, air conditioning and domotics. 

Lema Contract completed the rooms supplying flooring, ceilings, wood panelling for the walls and the bow windows; wooden, glass and gold decorated doors, boiserie, bed headboards and mobile bar furnishing

In addition, thanks to the profound expertise and the manufacturing culture that identifies Lema since its creation, Lema Contract has developed and completed internally in the Giussano factory the customised solutions following the drawings provided by studio Wilmotte for the boiserie in blue and grey durmast wood, with its delicate “textile” effect, very complicated to replicate. 

Lema President Angelo Meroni said: 

The Lutetia Hotel project, the biggest managed by Lema Contract in the French capital, fascinated us right from the start, and we are honoured to be a partner of such an iconic refurbishment in one of the world’s fashion capitals. An ambitious project that kept our Lema Contract team busy for four years and that reconfirms the deep connection that ties us to each project.”
