LE KLAY 

Charlotte Biltgen gives a face lift to the Klay Club, the famous Parisian sports club, entirely renovating the splendid covered terrace and the restaurant now called “Sinople”. She tackles this bespoke interior design project where marble, brass and crushed velvet are the elements required for luxury without any hint of ostentation. The result: a graceful balance between Parisian chic and tropical sweetness. The industrial building designed for exertion housing the Klay Club is suddenly enriched by a restaurant in the form of a well-earned rest with a feminine touch, a welcome oasis.

With its tailor-made stools, armchairs, tables and sofas, the restaurant area is designed like a hotel lobby. “It really is a lively place with people coming and going. Of course you can eat there, but you can also arrange to meet there, drink a coffee with the papers in the morning and a cocktail in the evening, I wanted the reality of it to be closer to a hotel lobby than a restaurant requiring booking” sums up Charlotte Biltgen. A grand style lobby, lined with marble with a walnut bar trimmed with brass and custom designed ceiling light. The elegance that is typically French, minimal, pure and sleek luxury without any excessive decor, single-handedly succeeds in providing an upscale ambiance thanks to the perfect choice of materials.

The outside covered terrace turns into a winter garden with a gentle tropical breeze. The graphic Formica marquetry on the tables contrasts with the raffia and metal seats by the Italian manufacturer Casamania.
