Artist Marc Ange Presents The Palm-Tree Perfect Refuge At The Beverly Hills Hotel


The Pink Palace—best known as the Beverly Hills Hotel, just is even more in the pink thanks to the exhibition of “Le Refuge,” an iconic, pink-palm treed piece by Parisian artist Marc Ange.

Le Refuge, the renowned pink daybed, will be at the iconic L.A. hotel in an exhibit curated by art and design gallery Leclaireur LA now through August 23th.

Ange is an artist whose designs include objects for high-end luxury brands, furniture pieces, cars and interiors. His recent work includes the new Scandal, Classique and Le Mâle by Jean Paul Gaultier, the concept Peugeot Avenue already open on the Champs Elysées in Paris and on QianMen street in Pékin and Chimère, a collection of unique furniture for pets. He now resides in Los Angeles, where he opened his second studio, drawing inspiration from the city’s vibrant artistic wave. He continues to create furniture pieces and bottles of perfume for high-end brands, and he is finalizing the second piece that will accompany Le Refuge and will be unveiled during Miami Art Basel 2017.


He first unveiled Le Refuge during Milan Design Week on April 2017, in collaboration with Wallpaper magazine and The Invisible Collection. The piece was and continues to be extensively featured on social media under the hashtags #lerefuge and #marcange, earning it the title of ‘Most Instagrammed Piece of Milan Design Week.’

As the name itself suggests, Le Refuge is a place where one finds comfort and peace, it provokes an escape from reality to a jungle-like dream.

“​It is the projection of a childhood memory. Its large leaves form a shelter under the sun, away from reality, just like those of the imaginary jungle that grows in the room of a child who seeks escape” says Ange, who drew inspiration for the creation of the piece from his new life in Los Angeles. He adds, “With its iconic pink facade, legendary history and magical setting, The Beverly Hills Hotel is a great setting to showcase Le Refuge.”

The exhibit is located in the citrus garden leading to the pool and is open to in-house guests and visitors.  After the two-week exhibit at The Beverly Hills Hotel, Le Refuge will be placed within the Leclaireur gallery at 450 N Robertson Boulevard.
