There’s a new premium business class lounge in Paris Orly Airport, the second busiest French airport in terms of passengers (after Paris Charles de Gaulle).

212 Orly West by OpenSkies rocks a new contemporary designed by French architect Nelson Willmotte to resemble a modern New York City loft. (The lounge name references the Manhattan area code 212.) Inside you’ll find rotating photos and paintings by contemporary artists in partnership with the Parisian art gallery Galerie Polka Paris.

Furnishings inside 212 Orly West are from Morgan, fabrics are from Kvadrat (Europe’s leading manufacturer of design textiles), and ambient lighting is from French design company Jieldé and Danish company Gubi. The lounge is in Terminal West, Hall 3, close to the OpenSkies boarding gate (literally a few feet away).

OpenSkies, of course, is the transatlantic airline owned by British Airways. It flies only 757s and features a majority of premium seats (there are only five rows of economy seats; read: more space for everyone!) and offers daily flights between New York JFK and Newark airports from Paris.
