Andrée Putman, French touch and elegance in design.


 

 

She became very famous after her work at Morgans, a hotel in New York. Few colours, and passion for space. A passion she learnt in her childhood. She spent her holidays at her grandmother's, a former abbey in Burgundy, France. Church, cloisters, chapter house, etc. of Fontenay are typical romanesque  buildings of the XIIth century.

"I cousciously harvested emotions, obsessions generated by geometry" she says.

 

She is not afraid by empty spaces and adds :

 

 

"Ruling over nothing,

 

that's not too bad" .

Forget design, gorgeous mansions and deluxe hotels.

 

On the Way of St James, what does the walker look for ?

 

Cross space, carry few things, empty oneself.

 

And with very little be the one and only Master.
