LVMH has always been passionately linked to the world of art and culture, areas that carry its values of know-how, excellence and creativity.
The brand integrates contemporary art, artists and creation at the heart of its universe. Louis Vuitton has chosen to establish several foundations for culture and contemporary art in Paris like the very well known Cartier foundation which presents shows of established and young upcoming artists, gathering more than a thousand works by 300 artists from all periods.
LVMH has always been passionately linked to the world of arts so it’s not surprising that the luxury Boutique hotel incorporates several art pieces and objects throughout the 5 islands.

Vincent Beaurin also has created a set of 46 sculptural spots made from marble and quartz sands in individual colour combinations. These spots or ‘Couronne’ are a focal point in each of the resort villas.
Each spot is unique.
Composite material, sand
Ø 71 x 13,5 cm / Ø 28 x 5 1/4 in.
Before Couronne was shipped and installed at Cheval Blanc Randheli, the installation was exhibited for three days at Galerie Laurent Godin, in Paris.
The ephemere exhibition was the only opportunity for the public to see the work in its entirety before the colour spots left for their final destination.
by Manuel Merida
The beautiful art creation is located at the superb White Restaurant.
Yellow Circle is one of the monochrome circles created by Venezuelan kinetic artist Manuel Merida. Based in Paris, Manuel Merida is also scenographer for theater, decorator for cinema and advertising designer for Christian Dior, Guerlain, Cartier and Chanel.
Filled with pigment and protected by a glass plate, the bright yellow circle was chosen to recall Cheval Blanc Randheli color palette ( pop yellow, taupe and white ).
Besides its eye catching aspect, Yellow Circle presents the particularity to turn around a central axis and create a work in perpetual transformation.
The moving organic matter moves slowly, creating forms that renew infinitely by reversing itself.
