Air France has released designs for its upcoming lounge in Terminal 2F at Paris Charles de Gaulle, set to open late this year.
The space is being designed by Parisian firm Jouin Manku.
Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku, the duo behind the company, say they aim “to create spaces that are exquisite, breathtaking and truly unique.”
The 3,500 sqm lounge will be for Air France’s Business and Flying Blue Elite Plus customers departing on or connecting to a medium-haul flight within the Schengen area or a domestic flight.
It will be located in the centre of the two boarding areas of Terminal 2F.
Catherine Villar, head of customer experience at Air France, said:
“We are delighted to include Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku in the incredible history that Air France has had with design since its creation.
“Following Charlotte Perriand, Andrée Putman and more recently Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance and Mathieu Lehanneur, a new creative stage is opening up to us.
“By creating an iconic new lounge, the Jouin Manku studio will enhance the very French notion of hospitality, combining pleasure and poetry.”
Jouin and Manku added:
“We are very proud to be embarking on this new project alongside Air France. With this new lounge, we wish to offer the airline’s customers a real moment suspended in time before take-off.
“At the heart of the lounge, a ‘runway view’, a huge curved window with a view of the sky, will reinforce the impression of being in a bubble of serenity at the heart of the airport. We have designed an intuitive space that every customer can enjoy, whatever the time of day.”
