Air France Airport Lounge Designed by Mathieu Lehanneur

French designer Mathieu Lehanneur has designed a bespoke bar space for Air France business lounge which wishes to suspend clients in a motionless state. Le Balcon creates a rounded structure sheltered under an enormous golden mirrored ceiling which catches the movements of planes and the dynamic skies, vivifying the inside whilst travelers rest.

You might acknowledge Mathieu Lehanneur’s work from other prestigious design projects such as Café Mollien at the Louvre, the Maison Kitsuné boutique in New York City and
various one-off art installations at museums and exhibitions throughout the world.

The designer turned his eye on Air France’s Terminal 2E Hall L lounge and built
an exclusive new space called Le Balcon where customers can have a meal and a
handcrafted cocktail between flights.

Le Balcon comprises 160 square meters (1,720 square feet). The design is meant to
invoke a sense of theatricality. There is a marble bar at its core that passengers
can witness from the opera box-like circular wooden booths covered in plush
teal velvet. Mathieu Lehanneur also set an LED screen in the tile floor that
represents the outside sky in real time, allowing Le Balcon the sense of suspension
between the earth and the clouds.

Possibly most eye-catching of all, though, is the ceiling, which is paneled with
polished golden mirrors – a shot of artificial sunshine indoors, not to mention a
healthy dose of glamour.
