It has become a must in interior design. She is this canopy that allows you to partition while letting the light circulate. She knows how to take new, more original forms. This is what the architect DESA, Camille Hermand proves to us with his achievements... 

Circulation of light, fluidity of movement, sound insulation, coherent electrical plan, energy saving measures, optimization of space and tailor-made layouts, the team delivers a global project and personalized support, so that its customers can make the most of their space. 

With its well-aligned regular uprights, it has spread everywhere, signing the interior with its black steel verticals in the 2010s. bar that is too open or decompartmentalising a cramped bathroom. If we like the principle, its lack of variations ended up trivializing it. The architect Camille Hermand often receives requests from his clients and knows how to bring them to more sophisticated proposals when the architecture of the place does not lend itself to it. 

In a Haussmannian, it is more appropriate to provide glazed walls with oak uprights, matching the Hungarian point parquet. Rounded facings respond to the fantasy of moldings or the curve of arched windows. In general, a canopy made of natural wood has a soft and elegant appearance, especially in the presence of a parquet floor. When it replaces an entire wall, you can vary its graphics, with crosspieces arranged irregularly. 

The idea is not to install a glass roof systematically but to place transparency where the light can circulate from one room to another. The glass door from top to bottom is the next "hit" destined to replace the canopy. Without major work, its airy look lightens the interior architecture while providing perspective as well as good sound and olfactory insulation. In the case of several adjoining rooms, it retains the clarity benefit of several front windows while closing off an office or a TV room. In an entrance, it isolates the corridor leading to the bedrooms while lighting it up. Between the kitchen and the dining room, it brings an elegant transition. 

Last variation as useful as it is stylish: the choice of glass. In her own apartment, Camille Hermand wanted to light up the hallway, while preserving the privacy of her bathroom. The solution is provided by a flute glass, opaque and textured, on a canopy with white integrated door, in the continuity of the walls. Another place, another style: smoked glass, which gives a very Saint-Germain 70's arty atmosphere. It is used here on sliding doors separating the kitchen from the dining room. Very transparent on the kitchen side, it is also a mirror on the dining room side to avoid revealing too much to the guests behind the scenes of the preparation of the dinner.

A sophistication far removed from the industrial era...
