Daniel Suduca and Thierry Mérillou have taken the reins as artistic directors of the PAD Paris 2016 Studio immersing us into a summertime and seaside atmosphere.
For this edition of PAD studio, interior designers Daniel Suduca and Thierry Mérillou revisited a space highlighting a bohemian chic lifestyle, an elegant escape, mirroring dreamy and mythical places such as the Hamptons, Montauk, Trancoso or Formentera and Comporta, all synonymous of freedom and sunshine.
Combining raw materials and contemporary creations with simplicity and finesse, Daniel Suduca and Thierry Mérillou recapture the elegant, unique and timeless holiday vibe. Walls covered with raffia matting, wood structures painted in a monastic white, abaca, rope, weave and the light-bathed patio filtered by a game of louver. This celebration of a certain lifestyle, simultaneously delicate and relaxed, reveals the premise of summer.
