Be a Wonder PAOLO BLEVE | Editor-in-chief

W

hether it be a project, product, construction, supply, small hotel, new headquarters or the most impressive recent accomplishment, it will always be welcome among the pages of IFDM’s Contract & Hospitality Book. The important thing is that it is a “Wonder”. IFDM, a dynamic and continually evolving magazine, marks a new benchmark for the hospitality world with this book. IFDM’s distinctive identity has led to an editorial project that boosts the desire to sustain the relationship between architects, designers, interior designers and international decision makers that impact the structures of the most important hotel brands with their own style and signature. Alchemy that continually involves major players in design for the supply of furniture, coverings and decorations. We will witness it in the exclusive interview with Gilles & Boissier, the directors of recent projects such as the Mandarin Oriental in Marrakech, the Baccarat Hotel in New York or the Chess Hotel in Paris, which we will present to you in the September edition. Original content offering a close look at new interpretations of hospitality, as hotel chains continue to invest in renovating their hotels and commissioning new projects with the aim of gaining a share of the market and the appreciation of smart travellers, now called Millennials, and lovers of the most exclusive luxury and comfort.

The beginning of a project always involves a “cover”. Ours is Rose Quartz. Certainly a Wonder, but that is not all. Color is the first factor that provokes a positive, attractive reaction, creates an expectation and arouses curiosity. Right up to determining a trend, influenced by attitudes, daily routines, economic and climatic changes and sometimes even by the emotional changes of the planet’s citizens. This fascinating topic is the subject of the new content of the two semi-annual Books. In partnership with ColorWorks and Clariant, we will present the annual forecast that announces the color trends for the future. Four stories told by Judith Van Vliet are published in the Spring-Summer March edition and Fall-Winter September edition of the IFDM Contract & Hospitality Book, which announces the Color Trends of 2017.

Shades of relationships in the color trends of 2017 An exclusive meeting with Judith Van Vliet, an international expert on color trends, to find out about the colors that will dictate tendencies in 2017, and the process from which they originate

P

ink. Did you notice the cover? We wrapped the Contract & Hospitality Book in a pink cover. And not just any shade, but Rose Quartz. It’s not a case that ColorForward 2016 had three pink colors in its forecasting. Let me explane. We are talking about trends and specifically trends linked to the world of color: an extremely important aspect in the product design process. The importance of the right shade - and we will shortly discover what is defined as “right” - affects your perception of a product, the message that it is trying to communicate and the positive effects that it can produce. But the coronation of one or more colors by the trendsetter only comes after a long process of investigation and analysis that takes place much earlier - at least two years - drawing from the search engine of the world in its totality of innovations and attitudes. Thus, the colors that will trend in 2017 have already been identified. And we know which ones they are. They will be revealed to us by a world expert in the field: Judith Van Vliet, Designer at ColorWorks Europe/IMEA (BU of Plastics & Coatings of Clariant) and Vice President of Communication & PR 16 | IFDM

at Color Marketing Group. However, before they are shared with you, it is necessary to take a step back to understand how this palette of colors is determined. Yes, colors plural, because twenty colors have been identified by ColorWorks, which are brought to life by four different stories. The driving forces behind these “stories” are the representatives of the five ColorWorks centers worldwide - Sao Paulo for Latin America, West-Chicago for North America, Merate for Europe and IMEA, Taiwan and Singapore for Asia Pacific - who meet every year for a five-day workshop that results in the ColorForward, their color forecasting guide. Four Stories, each identified and translated into 5 colors, define the content; Stories that are the focal point of research that encompasses every angle of lifestyle and innovation, and above all emerging global social movements. «We met last September in Chicago to discuss 2017 trends, but work began months earlier, participating in conferences about innovation and new technologies, following trendhunters in highly varied fields and visiting the great cities to experience not

It is a very democratic process: among all the reports brought to the attention of the various ColorWorks centers, only four become a Story and thus a trend, but all the Regions - some more than others - must

identify with it. This leads us to a fantastically creative moment - the choice of colors. «Depending on the trend that emerges, we attribute it five colors that give the trend its highest expression. It is certainly an emotive and emotional task, but it is ensured by our professionalism - we all have 11 years or more experience in the industry». And the statistics attest to their expertise: on average, their forecasts are 75% accurate and in the last two years this figure has even reached 85%.

DELONELINATION

The name immediately identifies what it denotes: the increasingly widespread feeling of loneliness that pervades the world without geographical boundaries. Technology can be - paradoxically - one of the causes, creating distance, isolation and problems with interaction. Increasingly, people are working longer and living alone. Marketers in Asia, Europe and the US are starting to come up with the first answers to these signals. The colors, all combined with a symbolic name, convey this sense of loneliness and fragility: «The beige The side up, the color of porcelain, expresses the fragility of people who feel alone; the matt pink The Last taboo represents the anxiety of talking about loneliness, and instead the Chicago Blues conveys a sense of security - explains Judith - But there are also warm colors like brown and orange, which we called Einsamkeit isn’t right and Hug the Duck, that represent the possible solutions to the problem, the desire for warmth and coziness, which can make us feel at ease. These colors in combination with soft materials such as suede, which is now making a great come-back, or velvet, convey the right sense of comfort».

SECOND STORY.

NEBULOVE

An explosion of colors. It stems from the analysis of a trend that is still in its early stages, but is certainly important, especially in areas such as Latin America and Europe. The sphere is that of relationships, which are particularly varied in this day and age: relationships can be open, monogamous, serially monogamous, polyamorous, cohabiting; but you can also talk about “just friends” or even “happily single”. Importance lies in the fact that people seek deeper experiences and feelings than those that are traditional and conventional. Take polyamory, the most consensual love between adults, which today accounts for 4-5% of relationships, in other words, 1012 million people. Or “singletude”, which today is celebrated with a day universally dedicated to it Singles Day; a phenomenon developed to the point

of already finding correspondence with the neologism “masterdating”, which means treating yourself well and taking care of your own needs. «There's a restaurant in Japan - Moomin Café - where if you dine alone, you are provided with a stuffed animal for company». Unbelievable. So in terms of colors? «They range from Perky Star (close to magenta) to the more intense Serial emulsions; purple that we called Potpourri reloaded: like a mix of dried flowers, in polyamory there is a mix of people and characters. Honeymoons is interesting - plural because it plays on the meaning of various honeymoons. It is an amber, cognac color, another comfortable shade that alludes to the warmth of the house and the family, but at the same time a very serious color just like polyamory, which involves strong support and faithfulness between partners. Finally, a slightly more delicate color, May we have your number, which also plays on plurality: it is a very light pistachio color, which represents the beginning of the journey towards happiness». You have had a glimpse of the trends for 2017. You will have to wait for the Fall/Winter edition of the Book to find out about the missing colors and the two stories attached to them. But we leave you with a word of advice from the expert. «Interior design colors linked to Delonlination are certainly the most suitable for next year. The Nebulove palette of colors will be useful as accents to match with the previous, more subdued colors for those who want to be more daring».

UNCOMPROMISING INTERIOR DESIGN, SUSPENDED BETWEEN BURSTS OF INSPIRATION AND HOSPITALITY CODES A conversation with Patrick Gilles and Dorothée Boissier, the interior design couple who have changed the paradigm of hospitality luxury

A

ssigning Gilles & Boissier a stylistic label is an impossible task - the couple’s eclectic vision confounds anyone who attempts to reduce their interior design style to a single definition. It is the invisible and elusive balance between an emotional shock and a mathematical calculation that governs Dorothée and Patrick’s approach to the world of interior design. This unpredictable, but concrete approach has led them to success in a world - the hospitality sector - in which the customer is not only an investor, but also the person who chooses this or that hotel or restaurant and decides in a second whether or not it is acceptable. The hospitality challenge has inevitably been passed on to Generation Y and even in this setting, Gilles & Boissier’s ideas are clear and, naturally, somewhat visionary.

The friend Costas "Yatzer" Voyatzis, now one of the most followed stakeholders in the world of the picture representing art and design, in the opening of his article about your home in Paris, says that "Gilles & Boissier are definitively no strangers to anyone involved in anything remotely close to high-end design�. It seems to be a paradox for a couple of designers who have signed such luxury hotels. Do you feel represented by Yatzer’s statement? And if so, how and why? Interior design is a long path. In French, it is translated into "architecture d'intÊrieur ". I think it takes time to understand how linked are our projects and our own inside architectures.

If high-end design means trying to go as high as possible in the directions we are aiming, I will accept it with pleasure.

With years, this architecture, which is made of two architectures (Patrick and I), is becoming more elaborated, more thought, more powerful, more free. And it gives, with the time, a different meaning to our work. We like to touch all kinds of interior design (residential, hospitality, retail, yachts), to continue to learn, to be challenged and to improve. We are sure that, at the end, our projects will be even better and our clients more and more satisfied.

There is still a wave of boutique hotels trying to invent, to propose a new life style. They may not be called anymore design hotels but they are very designed! Andre Balazs is the king of fully controlled projects, with strong design and stories, from interior designs to staff uniforms, music. By working on bigger unit hotels, we try to play with them with the same codes, as smaller hotels, as private houses, as movies.

24 | IFDM

In the hospitality design hotels are decreasing while the ones that choose a style called "classic international" are increasing: do you agree with this definition? They were a reproduction of magnificent interiors but not an invention. Design hotels from the 90's wanted to propose a new way of living, new codes, new references, new materials, new shapes. As did brilliantly Philippe Starck with the "Delano".

The elegance of purity expressed by the interior project of Baccarat Hotel in NYC

"Classic international" is not our taste. And I think there is a rebel attitude against it! Is it better a hotel "where you feel at home" or a hotel "where you feel comfortable away from home"? I prefer to feel comfortable away from home. Our hotels are not a duplication of a comfortable house. Their purpose is to shake emotions, to provoke questions, to reactivate a smile, to give a new surprise, to awake our brain spoiled by thousands of images. You should feel away. But, in this wish to take the customer into a different world, he has to understand the story, to feel mentally comfortable, to recognize his marks. He should not be harassed nor violented but sometimes a little bit shaken! Owners and developers of hotel industry projects deal with Millenials (or Generation Y), seeking to intercept and retain them: has it ever happened to you in your latest design project that your clients spoke or asked about them? Do you find clarity of ideas on customer targets on behalf of the investors in hospitality? Hospitality is living a total mutation and progression phase. For the well-known brands, it is time to answer to the coming generation, without Lying to their original message. The recipe is not so clear and brands are taking risks by guessing what would be the wish of this Y generation. I have to say that we are not trying to analyze the wishes of the Y but to IFDM | 25

be creative enough to still give them emotions. This generation is attacked by images and information and to surprise them is a challenge. But as soon as you continue to invent a story and built the decor around it, they become again children ready to listen and they stop for a while (from their mobile) How has (if it has) your design approach changed in the last 5 years? We are spoiled adults. Images have gone so far and in such a quantity in our imagination that there is not so many space for additional information. It is now a challenge to surprise a client. He has been everywhere, seen everything. And I feel that now, in an unconscious manner, our clients are willing to put content in their project. Beautiful is not enough. Value is now coming from the story, the scenario, the purpose. There is an important time dedicated to understand the project and define which movie we would like to develop, with which actors, decors, art, lighting, music, food. Design is not anymore about designing but creating/editing a whole moment which stimulates our five senses. We are finally rediscovering life! You're two designers who were not born specifically in the hotel world, but suddenly and in little time you have signed 4 projects of the highest level and above all you have been chosen for the unique Baccarat Hotel in the world: if you close your eyes, and you wonder why, which answers would you give to you? We are two. And so unexpectedly different. And we love to share, to fight, to leave the arms and to reborn...Each project, whatever is the scale, the client, the budget, is another story to invent. And this process can lead you to any kind of projects that require an imagination. We love working on so many subjects/topics which require each time a new understanding, analysis. We are little but very greedy and willing to taste all the delicious food to be more gourmet at the end! When Kemper Hyers, the artistic director of Starwood Capital Group, came to see us in Paris, we had immediately a "coup de foudre". He had this brilliant vision that we could adapt our Frenchness to their American culture by integrating a French brand of 250 years old to create the first Baccarat hotel in NY. He knew we were ready to be shaken and I guess that the cocktail was good! 26 | IFDM

Who inspires you? Are there any forms of art that evoke feeling that first become ideas and then projects? Nature, human being and its creations inspire us. A text, a plant, a stone, a smile, a dawn, a jump, a laugh, a perfume, a photography, a pot, a touch, a wave... Ballet, opera, cinema, photography, music, architecture, fashion... Each project is starting on a specific emotion. We are both inspired by different things. I love literature, ballet, philosophy. He loves cinema, photography, painting, books. I have a deep respect for people that have a vision and a path to follow, without no compromise. Nietzsche, Picasso, Socrate, Louise Bourgeois, Oscar Niemeyer, David Lynch... And especially when they are women.

HOTEL

Spectacular hospitality between heaven and earth With its fifty floors, Four Seasons dominates Bahrain Bay and is a symbol of the city’s modern spirit

A

fter Washington, Chicago, Prague, Paris, Lisbon, London, Geneva and Florence, mentioned in no particular order and by no means a complete list, Pierre Yves Rochon’s PYR firm also accomplished the interior design of the Four Seasons in Bahrain Bay, completed in the spring of 2015, confirming its long collaboration with the chain dedicated to international luxury hospitality. The skyscraper that houses the five-star hotel was designed by the American firm SOM as an architectural icon about 200 meters tall, constructed on an artificial island built in the centre of the new urban extension, also based on a masterplan by SOM, developed on the waterfront northeast of Manana. A structure consisting of two tall monolithic concrete columns with glass ‘inserts’ that stands as a sort of gateway to the Bahraini capital, a symbol of its highly modern and cosmopolitan identity. One of the highlights of the 68-storey hotel is the stunning view of the landscape, the ocean and the city, which can be enjoyed from every room and suite. The measurements, use of space and furnishings of the rooms, which total 273 including 57 suites, are designed like luxury urban residences, 28 | IFDM

with decor inspired by the Art Deco style of the 1930s passenger ships that sailed along the maritime routes all over the world. The generous rooms and suites, located on the upper floors (from 170 to 228 sq m), feature large floor-to-ceiling windows and are flooded with natural light that illuminates and brightens the colour mix of the rich palette chosen for furnishings, fabrics, carpets and upholstery. A wide range of green and blue shades, in homage to the seascape, stands out on a more neutral base of beige, black and light brown. The black and white marble in the bathrooms and the dark red mahogany of furniture and finishes complete the colour scheme. Another highlight of the complex is the numerous, articulated communal spaces located inside and outside, on the ground floor and lower floors: from the double-height glazed lobby to the vast lounge area, furnished terraces, dance halls, modular reception, meeting rooms and spaces equipped as offices. The inside is illuminated with light that resembles daylight and small potted trees anticipate the vast outdoor terrace area, with gardens, trees, lounge areas and swimming pools.

The nearly 1,000 sq m infinity pool project follows the edge of the island directly onto the mirror of water that comprises the Gulf, with its ‘satellites’, the children's pool and the Azure, which is closer to the spa and has a whirlpool bath with hot water and private cabins. A fourth pool is located in the health and fitness centre, set in a garden and housed by four separate pavilions, linked by bridges and walkways. Here the project is inspired by Moroccan and Turkish elements and influences, such as the modern mashrabiyas that guarantee privacy and separation while allowing guests to enjoy light, air and views of the landscape. Moroccan inspiration also features in the Blue Moon Lounge, one of the seven restaurants and

bars ‘scattered’ throughout the hotel, each characterized by its own architectural and culinary style. The Blue Moon, one of the three bars operated by Wolfgang Puck and designed by Waldo Fernandez, is located on the 50th floor and, together with the Re Asian Cuisine restaurant which is characterized by Art Deco style furnishing, offers a spectacular view of the city. Descending to the base of the tower, the CUT steakhouse is located on a raised level, connected to its Bar & Lounge, while the Bahrain Bay Kitchen, designed by EDG, is found on the ground floor near the entrance lobby, with a kitchen and outdoor area, along with the Bay View Lounge, with its floor-to-ceiling windows. The Mediterranean Vento restaurant is situated over the swimming pool.

ompleted in December 2015 and opened to the public in February 2016, the Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is strategically located near the main entrance to the terminal, connected by the Traverse, a covered pedestrian walkway that provides a direct route. The hotel, designed by the Dutch firm Mecanoo, is the new icon of Schiphol Central Business District, the business district that is home to many international companies. Visible and easily recognizable from afar, the crushed cube-shaped structure features a facade cladding that combines three types of panels - curved, arched and rectilinear - to create an irregular mosaic pattern characterized by two different colors - gray and white - and by diagonal lines. The monolithic volume, sealed off from the outside world, in fact conceals a spectacular and surprising space, the pulsating

heart of the hotel: a gigantic 42-meter-high hall, enclosed by a glass roof and overlooked by all the floors that house the rooms and suites for the guests and conference and meeting rooms. The ground floor consists of a huge interior space, a kind of inner square, which contains the entrance, the reception, the lounge areas, the bar and restaurant and serves as the hotel's nerve centre - a meeting place, where guests can also take a break or work. The escalator and white balustrades lead up to the first two floors, which host 23 meeting rooms, the reception hall and spa with gym, and on to the next levels right up to the eleventh floor, which house 433 rooms of various types. The white tone and the soft lines of the balustrades create a bright, serene atmosphere, despite the height of the building, and the interior design project for the open space on the ground floor manages to bring out a human dimension.

The outside of the hotel is an architectural icon, while the inside, designed by The Gallery HBA, is a habitable space that is a first point of contact with Dutch culture and history. In the lobby, large rugs form colored ‘islands’, which contrast with the sand tones of the floor and define the different areas and functions: the reception, lounge, tech lounge, work tables and cocktail bar. The patterns of the rugs present a graphic depiction of the islands and waterways of coastal areas in the south of Holland, while the partition screens, perforated with laser cutting, reproduce the map of the network of canals and help to identify the different islands. The colors of the rugs - a navy-inspired palette of blue, pale blue and white - are also repeated on the sofas and chairs.

The architect Piero Lissoni offers his own insight on the development. What is it about your design that has conquered the American public? To be completely honest, I don’t know. Our firm was chosen by the Ritz-Carlton Residences because they saw some of our past international projects and liked our approach to building design.

he Ritz-Carlton Residences in Miami Beach are the new frontier in ultra-luxury residential developments. Seven acres in the heart of the fashionable South Florida island, on the banks of Surprise Lake, which offer a unique panorama immersed in a rejuvenating nature. The project’s exclusivity is not only guaranteed by an exceptional property, The Ritz-Carlton, now a synonym for hospitality excellence, but also by a team of developers and top-notch designers: the developer of the Residences is 4701 North Meridian, a partnership between Lionheart Capital and Elliott Management Corporation, based in Miami; the Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni heads the design team, supported by the firm ADD Inc. Lissoni’s modern, futuristic vision is combined with the American chain’s services and amenities: this has given rise to 111 apartments and 15 single-family villas, equipped with 36 private boat dockages. The interiors of all the two-to-five-bedroom homes range, which encompasses floor spaces between 500 sq m to 3000 sq m in a selection of 60 different floor plans, have been carefully executed and developed. Light pervades the spaces through large glass walls that define the architectural perimeter, creating a constant dialogue between interior and exterior.

which could not be completely demolished. They chose our firm because we are reasonably capable when it comes to this kind of task: we completely redesigned everything and transformed it into a new design, while preserving part of the old structures. This European approach to architectural intervention certainly benefitted us. What do you mean by “European approach�? The ability to come up with a complicated design that is simultaneously respectful and courageous this approach has been particularly developed in Europe. We are used to it, we live in complicated cities like London, Paris, Rome, Venice and Amsterdam, with a burden of historical material that is sometimes very hard to bear, but at other times it is a lifesaver. For the Miami Beach Residences, we tried to take exactly this approach. Miami is a fast-growing city with an exciting design scene. Have you already had the opportunity to work here? How did your relationship with the property and the developer evolve? Today the most beautiful, important and expensive projects in Miami have ended up in the hands of European architects, something that was practically impossible until five or six years ago.

first major one and fortunately we now have others in the pipeline. There was a daily dialogue with the client about what we could do and what we wanted to do, with restrictions due solely to the place, the size of the intervention and the attempt to respect architectural quality. The project, as is the case generally, was the result of a very strong collaboration and a certain amount of compromise. I tried to contribute with much of my own input, just as they did. What architectural solution did you adopt for the restyling of the structure? In contrast to what is normally done in Miami, where they create vertical towers that rise to 150 meters, the 54 | IFDM

project progressed horizontally with a very low impact. We ensured that the buildings were not excessively high: 7, 8, and in some places 10 floors - by local standards, they are a ridiculously low. The general plan was retained, but the buildings have been shaped and designed according to their function, in a rather precise way. There are areas that I wanted to design as lofts with wide-open spaces – units of 500 sq m each. I was able to take a wide-ranging approach to the interior and arrangement of the sizes. On the subject of the concept for the Residences, what style did you want to give them? We designed very contemporary buildings, which

have little in common with the local style. They are not very Miami. I stayed in the sphere of modern architecture, without rustic details or features typical of the city. The client wanted the apartments to have very urban designs, with very little maritime influence. In fact, they have been designed for a public that is unaccustomed to this type of space, as if they were very European, urban buildings. But above all, we have filled them with Italian design. Which brands did you want as partners for the furnishings? A broad range of different names. Boffi for kitchens and bathrooms, Porro, Living Divani, pieces by Cassina and B&B Italia, Flos for lighting, Fantini for taps and many others. In this case, I opted for a lot on Italian brands, since I wanted to achieve overall

quality that, in my opinion, the Italian model is able to provide. Since they are very urban residences, Italian brands are the only ones that really understand this context. What innovations can these companies bring to America? The American public, especially that of Florida and Miami, is an unusual public. Miami has become a sort of global hub: many cultures co-exist here, from South America, Europe and North America. It is a curious, very open-minded city - those who live here are already prepared to be more creative and are slightly more cultured in the field of design. We Italians are showing them another aesthetic model which they have certainly understood and very much appreciate. Luckily for us.

Smart evolution The renovated headquarters of Royal Dutch Gazelle in Dieren is a harmonious fusion of the past and future

A

new production plant for Royal Dutch Gazelle. The company’s headquarters in Dieren, the Netherlands, which has a floor space of over 22,000 sq m, has undergone a major renovation carried out by the architectural firm Bronsvoort Blaak Architects. Central to the design was the idea of combining the historical legacy of the former structure and the origins of the company with contemporary production requirements. The result is a monumental architectural masterpiece. The design team led by Anton Bron-

svoort and Geert Henk Blaak has created a concept that respects the evolution of the company, a premium brand in the manufacture of bicycles and ebikes (the modern version with pedal assistance). Founded back in 1902 by the entrepreneurial duo William KĂślling and Rudolf Arentsen, the former paint factory from which it inherited part of its structure that is still visible today (which dates back to before 1860), continues its expansion with the addition of new buildings that are expertly connected with a historic core.

The area built in the 50’s, Beltaman, has also been completely renovated. The walls are now large windows that connect the assembly area with the offices. A scale image of the old building’s wall, in the restaurant area, symbolizes the link between tradition and innovation. Meanwhile, modern showcases, immersed in a museum exhibition, narrate the history of the company through its models. The architectural redesign has also facilitated a renewal of the production cycle, allowing for the creation of a new bicycle in just 48 hours. The location is thus a concretization of the brand’s vision: ease and comfort, ingenious technology and solid quality. Ceramiche Refin has been selected as the project’s brand partner, paving the entrance, lobby, restaurant area on the ground floor, stairway and some of the corridors on the upper floors with its Burgundy stones Diamond collection (90x90cm).

A

luscious 20-hectare park, designed as a huge garden and a paradise of vegetation, is the authentic sign of luxury that marks the first approach to the new Mandarin Oriental resort, opened in Marrakech last October, the Asian chain’s first investment in Africa. The access road is distinguished by an avenue shaded by palm trees and small dunes, while the rest of the garden, which is traversed by long footpaths, boast oranges, almonds, bougainvillea, jasmine, pink geraniums, oleanders, cactuses, prickly pears and thirty different rose varieties. There are even century-old olive trees ready for picking, which come from the Atlas mountains that rise up in the distance, as well as a large vegetable garden cultivated organically that produces fruit and vegetables used in the hotel kitchen. Spacious buildings are dispersed among the brilliant colours of the blooms and lush greenery, with receptions, suites and restaurants, the reflective water of the swimming pools, the 54 private villas and the spa, all featuring low architecture with easy volumes.

Tadelakt finishes are achieved using an ancient Berber technique, with a lime base produced in the ancient wood-burning furnaces of Marrakech, which are now used to create smooth, polished, highly water-resistant surfaces.

There is a sumptuous twotone ivory and black marble floor, which is repeated in the lobby. “We are great admirers of the Ben Youssef Madrasa in Marrakech, and we wanted to create similar perfect symmetry for the lobby, with columns and dark wooden cornices, marble tiles, a mirror of water with golden reflections, fireplaces, bronze bells and a view of the mountains in the background.”

From an industrial past to a renewed present A working environment ‘contaminated’ with domestic-inspired features: White Arkitekter opts for reuse of spaces and furnishings for the Epidemic Sound office

“W

e wanted our office to look like a second home or our favourite bar, a place where we want to spend more time, socialize with our colleagues and listen to music. I am convinced that the office plays an important role in our company’s ability to attract talent,” explains Felix Edwards Mannheimer from Epidemic Sound. Musical talent, since Epidemic Sound deals with the production and sharing of music, as well as architectural design talent. They commissioned White Arkitekter with the design of the extension to their Stockholm office. White Arkitekter is a leading firm of Swedish architects, whose philosophy is primarily based on the empathetic relationship between people and spaces, as well as on sustainability principles. ‘Reuse’ is the key word underlying the interior design concept that has expanded the company’s headquarters to a whole new floor: large areas (825 sq m) of the building, which was formerly a brewery, have been restructured, preserving some of the features and atmosphere of an artisan work space. The furnishings are also recycled, including 70 | IFDM

IKEA pieces or vintage furnishings bought at auction. Such as the leather sofas or fabric chairs, chests and tables, chairs and lamps used to create small, informal working, meeting or break areas, as well for equipped areas with desks and seating for a more traditional office. Both the more ‘technical’ and almost domestic decor harmoniously coexist in an unconventional working environment – a large open space that nonetheless contains, in a well-defined area, small offices with glazed partitions, which allow privacy and quiet for meetings, interviews or listening to music. The versatile layout of the floor also provides extra space for a growing number of staff and the possibility of reconfiguration in the case of future expansion. The fixed points in the site are the staircase between the two floors, which is also visually connected by a large opening in the attic, and the columns, which have been preserved from the original building. The under ceiling was removed to increase the height of the space, revealing the building’s mechanical systems. This has all been done to emphasize the building’s industrial character.

H. I. P. Highly Individualised Places in Singapore From Foster + Partners and Philippe Starck: The South Beach Hotel combines an innovative architectural design with a creative, eclectic vibe

T

he South Beach. Not the world-famous one in “usual suspect” Miami, but a brand-new destination in Singapore. The stylish hotel is part of a large-scale urban regeneration project combining four 20th-century military buildings - preserved as part of the plans on account of their architectural heritage - with the addition of two towers very much belonging to the 21st-century. The towers are home to flats, offices and hospitality spaces and were designed by Foster + Partners with Aedas. It means the so-called City of Gardens has another iconic building to add to its skyline: in keeping with Singapore’s green theme, the South Beach Development - located between the historic Civic District and the Marina Center uses a number of gardens to provide a green walkway between the various buildings. And with public spaces, bars, restaurants, shops, residential flats and offices, the area is aiming to becoming an allout urban hub. The multi-use site is rendered attractive and comfortable thanks to a continuous, undulating roof that covers the existing, smaller buildings before shooting upwards to become part of the façade of the two new towers. Measuring 280 metres in length and fitted with photovoltaic cells to produce electricity, the covering takes on a vault shape over the pedestrian walkway, helping offset the effects of the aggressive tropical climate on the city, protecting users from direct sunlight and rain.

The hotel itself - named simply The South Beach extends through several of the buildings in the development. The South Tower, one of the two designed by Foster + Partners, is home both to the 190 South Beach Residence apartments - for which around 2000 doors and closets were commissioned from Italian company Res - and part of the hotel itself, with communal spaces and rooms up to the 23rd floor. More rooms and suites are located in the building now transformed into the Padang Terrace, while one of the development’s bars, the Court Martial Bar, and the Grand Ballroom are situated in the former barracks itself. The best part of the hotel’s hospitality - and the interior design project created by Phillippe Starck - is the inclusion of numerous communal spaces, known officially as Imaginative Social Spaces. There are no less than 43 of these scattered around the various buildings for visitors who prefer not to spend their time alone, including the three bars, the All Day Dining Restaurant, the meeting room and the Global Village lounge. The lobby is - of course - the point of arrival for guests, who are welcomed by seven unique reception desks, the design of which draws inspiration from seven different cultures from around the world: Peranakan, European, North American, South American, Indian, Chinese and Moorish. The result is an eclectic mix of vintage and modern. IFDM | 75

The interior design project is a triumph of imagination. Unafraid to spread the creativity on liberally or mix seemingly alien elements, it manages to strike a balance between the expected and the unexpected, the ordinary and the psychedelic. The spaces themselves - particularly the communal spaces - are capricious and brimming with content, references, objects and visual draws. These include the 7x6.5m video wall in the lobby, created by South Korean artists Lee Lee Nam, the aquatic-theme graffiti that adorns the inside of the lifts and the gigantic light installation hanging from the ceiling of the Ballroom.

The sensory assault is toned down a notch for the dÊcor and design of the 654 rooms and suites. While the rich array of furniture and objects remains, the colours used are more neutral - though mirrors and metallic elements ensure a sense of brightness. White reigns supreme for the walls, tables, beds and sofas, while leather and wood elements in beige and powder nuances contrast with splashes of colour from objects, fabric and rugs in abstract patterns and tropical camouflage.

S

ituated on the banks of the stretch of the Naviglio Grande canal that leads towards Trezzano, the two buildings that make up the cultural centre - a symphony of different architectural volumes - seem to observe each other from a safe distance, separated by a large grassy area just off Via Alzaia Trieste. Each is equally proud of its own identity: on one side the Guardia di Sopra farmstead, an historical agricultural building given renewed life for the project, and on the other the brand-new Buddhist temple/auditorium, which screams contemporary design. The story is well known. The two “twin� Guardia farmhouses - which belonged to the Visconti family - faced each other for years on the right- and lefthand banks of the Naviglio Grande canal. Time was kinder to one than it was to the other, because while the Lower farmhouse is still in a serious state of disrepair, the Upper was recently bought and converted by the Soka Gakkai Buddhist Association. The renovation and construction project was entrusted to Peia Associati, with Giancarlo Leone and Enrico Colosimo joining in for the restoration phase. Opened to the public in October 2014, the cultural centre - which now combines the ancient with the modern - was designed to be a large communal 80 | IFDM

It has been described as a “melting pot of cultural, social and environmental values - a meeting point and a space for cultural exchange with a physical link to the theme of waterways”. The two components of the project interact with water in very different ways, however, in a contrast specifically created by the designer. The old building preserves the traditional long, closed structures in the blind colonnade style, facing parallel to the canal in order to protect the main house, stables, stores and internal courtyards, all of which were renovated using philological restoration principles.

new complex is surrounded by a pool of water, a nod to the design of ancient castles, or Kaikan in Japanese – not by chance is this the name of the temple. The “castle” is formed by a main building, which holds a large, 1000-seater auditorium, as well as some smaller, more transparent structures home to the foyer, reception services and amenities. Yet while the foyer is low and transparent, in order to create a direct link with light and the surrounding area, the auditorium upholstered with metallic-effect perforated leather in gold – is closed off and isolated from the outside world, with the exception of the large window which creates a visual relationship with the wider complex.

Luxury is a vocation Palazzo Versace, in Dubai, a glittering fashion hotel in the land of wealth

T

his is not the first foray into the hospitality world for the Versace fashion house, which astonished everyone in 2000 with the opening of Palazzo Versace on the Gold Coast in Australia, but Palazzo Versace in Dubai is a true challenge because it is located in a geographical area that has made luxury its trademark. There are numerous 5-star hotels in the Gulf States (and surrounding region) and the number will continue to rise: architectural and interior design formulas are all centred around the appearance of the structures and furnishings and they are almost always extremely lavish. Dubai, which is certainly the most cosmopolitan of the Arab cities, is the perfect place to leave a mark in the hotel business. Palazzo Versace in Dubai, designed by Donatella Versace, artistic director of the Italian fashion house, is situated on the Dubai Creek waterfront and offers 215 bedrooms and 169 condominiums of various sizes. Palazzo Versace not only offers opulent luxury, but a true lifestyle, defined by fashion, accessories and a rich, refined atmosphere. 84 | IFDM

The Versace mood permeates throughout the hotel, from the hand-painted gold ceilings to the marble and mosaics, and finally the heads of Medusa and the Greeks chosen as subjects for prints, true icons of the fashion house, some of which were exclusively designed for the hotel. The lobby that welcomes guests is an explosion of Baroque: 1000 sq m of mosaics and textile accessories inspired by the symbolic figures of the Palazzo: the Peacock, the Falcon and the Horse. Symbols and allegories are woven seamlessly into a visual whirlwind that overwhelms visitors. The luxurious rooms come in an infinite number of variations: from Deluxe to Premiere, from the Executive Suite to the Imperial Suite, every room is a unique environment designed for the most discerning guests. Eight bars (one of which, Q’s, is dedicated to Quincy Jones) and restaurants, three outside swimming pools and a fitness and wellbeing centre complete the range of places and services for the most demanding leisure needs, as well as for business that requires privacy, security and a suitable setting. The next challenge? Macao in 2017.

A hotel defined by Wanders’ inspiration This is what is meant by made to measure. Every detail of the Kameha Grand Zurich Hotel was designed and created specifically in order to enhance the environment by provoking amazement and wonder, paying homage to the history and tradition of Zurich

«O

thers deliver an interior design, but we offer a reason for a visit, we create a destination. A hotel should entertain, inspire and stimulate. We want the guest to have a lifestyle experience, by creating a place full of surprises and beauty». We can only believe the words of Marcel Wanders, which describe the philosophy that envelops and permeates the Kameha Grand Zurich - walking along its corridors we seem to be surrounded by bars of chocolate and as we enter the lobby, we are overwhelmed by huge golden bells. We really cannot help but be captivated, enthralled and amazed. The Kameha is a truly extraordinary hotel, just like the person responsible for its design. The Dutch designer Marcel Wanders has created a new sense of welcoming hospitality, expressed in the union between design and lifestyle, which aims to surprise through the most varied forms of creativity. A great respect for Zurich, where the Kameha is located, and for its characteristic tra-

ditions, underlies the interior design. The challenge was to incorporate local elements with the visionary approach of the designer, in a crescendo of drama and emotion generated by the interior. Hence the series of details that allude to Swiss industry and personalities, such as the chocolate-patterned wall paneling, mini-bars that resemble safes, lamps that look like giant bells, and even sofas whose shape is reminiscent of the famous Toblerone chocolate. The lobby offers a foretaste of this concept - which later develops in a variety of styles and themes through the suites, meeting spaces, two restaurants and lounge - serving as an introduction and at the same time as a connecting point for the various themes. The entrance area is decorated with elements that evoke the heritage of Zurich, including its watchmaking tradition and the success story of its banks. A red carpet guides visitors into the hall, ending in the imposing staircase that leads to the Kameha Dome, a multifunctional 710 sq m space

that evokes the grandeur of traditional ballrooms. The design of the rugs in the lobby is directly inspired by Swiss banknotes - the designs used are the result of the study of guilloche rosettes and metamorphosis patterns. The walls and ceiling are primarily white - a neutral tone which accentuates the decorative elements and furniture even further enriched by padded and quilted panels, with touches of light provided by large golden keys. Above the reception, big golden bells illuminate the space, embellished with floral motifs that recall the Kameha logo, which is scattered at many points throughout the hotel. 245 rooms, including 6 suites and 11 themed business suites, each different from the next, which bear Wanders’ unmistakable signature. The entire hotel is the result of his eclectic, creative genius: the whole interior, from the furnishings to the patterned upholstery, was custom-designed for the Kameha, along with iconic pieces that complete the design. This exclusivity dominates 11 themed suites, where playful touches and imagination create unexpected results: there is the Princess suite, the Poker Face suite complete with a roulette table, the Ghostwriter and the Fair Play suite with a pool table, darts and table games, the Watchmaker suite, which was created in collaboration with a Swiss watch manufacturer, the Burlesque and Gentlemen suites, the Diva suite for those who want to play the role of a movie star, and the Workout and Serenity suites, equipped with a yoga mat and scented candles. Every room is a carefully orchestrated blend of furniture and styles and the trend continues in the catering spaces: the Italian restaurant, L'Unico, and the Japanese Yu Nijyo, whose design, according to its creators’s vision, aims to unite culinary authenticity with a modern sensibility. The ceilings are modeled in line with the sizes and shapes of the tatami mats, while

t is located in Via Verri 7, within a historic bourgeois palace in Milan. 1200 sq m spread over three floors, which dominate Milan’s “quadrilateral of fashion” facing Via Montenapoleone. A sacred aura surrounds Pisa Orologeria’s new flagship store, an international reference point for enthusiasts and collectors: a gallery leads to the entrance, defined by symmetrical alabaster counters and dominated, in the center, by the brass Labyrinth - the brand’s logo - embedded in the marble floor. This is the focal point that forms the basis for the overall concept of the store. The creative force behind the project was Art Director Antonio Vittorio Carena, who incorporated the structure of a planetarium in the architectural design, in which the moon and the planets are conceptually represented by surroundings that gravitate around the Labyrinth, or in Pisa, the sun: 96 | IFDM

thus, the valuable watches are the stars that light up the night sky. «The circularity of the store, from the walls to the steps, is accentuated by the orbits that spread out vertically from the central orbit, repeated on every floor - the architect explains - If he first floor is a marble labyrinth, the second corresponds to a rug, while the third is a black mirror.» Even the names of the areas follows that philosophy: the entrance is referred to as Dial, flanked by brass wings with a circular design in which the constellations of the elements of the Pisa family are represented; occupying a deeper space, the Satellite area is for brands with concepts that are always personalized; an imposing mahogany staircase leads to the Orbits on the second floor, the most intimate and secluded lounges, in which each disk contains a different brand that gravitates in the space.

the structure’s dome on the third floor, has a hybrid character - it is a distinctive area specifically designed for events and special projects to celebrate the watchmaking world in all its diversity; the other area houses the hospitality lab and the technical lab, open to the public for the first time. «The Observatory was created with the dual aim of returning to the central concept of watchmaking, where watches become an extension, and to transform this store into an international boutique and thus be able to speak to the world in a unique language». The architectural design - which also in-

sequently, all the historic materials are present, integrated in the contemporary era, such as mahogany, traditionally shiny, but in this case matt. In fact, all the finishes are matt because we wanted watches to be the only things that shine in the store.» The white marble is gray Istrian stone, the fine-grain earthenware was redesigned with a medium-large grain texture. Finally, new materials were used, including the metal galvanic finish of the matrix, which was also used for the finishes of the furnishing accessories, designed by Romeo Sozzi or custom-made.

Yurbban Hotel features a very cutting idea of hotellerie edge. What’s the concept at thebottom of the project? The client wanted the guests to have the perception of entering a 3-star and leaving a 5-star hotel. Therefore, noble materials such as hickory, brass, oak and mirrors were used, in combination with a warm atmosphere due to the lighting project. Additionally, a carefully studied selection of furniture manufacturers and models have been chosen, standing out as much for their quality as for their design. The Hotel is a mix of many very special features: a smart and simple design and many services, including medical (not common to find). It almost seems that the hotel would be the result of a market research. Is it? More than a market research, the services we offer have been imagined keeping in mind what we want for the final guest. Which means that our aim is to make our guests feel at home and long for enjoy good their holidays. When we travel we rest to live the city in an authentic and unique way.

Which is your targetgroup? Our target group millennials are people who love to do everything by themselves, which means that they love and live the concept of “do it yourself ”. An example for this feature is our lobby located local store where you can find a selection of local products which serve to fill the minibars in the rooms. The free laundry service works the same way, the client chooses to wash his or her clothes or not and can do so without charge. Also, there is the possibility to use the Hotel’s bikes to go explore the city and get lost within its streets and gardens. Contemporary and vintage, smart but refined, leisure and business, private and social: is this the key for the hospitality of third millennium? We don’t believe that there is the key to success but a sum of many factors and the work of many people. What we do is a commitment to what we see that works in this moment, the “affordable luxury”. It seems that now more and more, luxury is not related 100 | IFDM

The new life of Villa René Lalique A comprehensive project transforms the family estate in the Vosges into a boutique hotel and tribute to the ingenious founder of the brand

V

illa René Lalique is not simply a charming hotel in the heart of the Northern Vosges Regional Natural Park, France. It is the sophisticated result of a multidisciplinary project that combines new and reconstructed architecture, interior design, art, decoration, design objects, down to the smallest detail. Above all, the hotel is a large-scale tribute to the French company’s century-long history and to the ingenious, innovative creativity of its founder René Lalique, considered the inventor of modern jewellery and master of the art of glass. The hotel, which consists of just six suites, is housed in the Lalique family’s former villa and retains its atmosphere and authenticity. For the outside of the structure, original features have been faithfully restored, including blue shutters, while the interior has been redesigned for its new function by Lady Tina Green and Pietro Mingarelli, who are also the creators of the ‘Lalique Maison’ collection of furnishings and accessories, inspired by Art Deco style and the brand’s past creations. Each of its six suites, spread over three floors, has furnishings, décor and fabrics which feature a characteristic theme of Lalique. Hirondelle displays an oriental, shiny red and black colour contrast; the 108 | IFDM

Rose and Dahlia suites are distinguished by floral decorations on an almost monochrome ivory palette with gold or crystal details; Zeila and Dragon present a tribute to the animal world with a number of decorative details with the silhouettes of a panther or dragon, and finally, the apartment on the top floor, ‘Masque de femme’, evokes the famous decorative panel in which René Lalique illustrated his fascination with the female figure, nature and mythology. In all the suites, the beige, black, ivory and blue lacquer furnishings refashion typical Art Deco stylistic features and recall the brand’s excellence in crystal workmanship, with small decorative details that are also found in the large, comfortable lounge area on the ground floor. Here the ivory and grey of the fabrics and finishes is contrasted with the black lacquer, the transparency of the crystal and the shine of the metal in a classic and relaxed composition arranged in various adjacent rooms on the ground floor. At the far end, there is an exuberant black, shiny bar, with a counter and showcase for bottles and decanters, some of which are fine examples of Lalique’s elegant, historic creations for brands like Macallan, Hardy, De La Tour and Patron. There is a short passage, protected by glass, from the lounge area to the new space that houses the restau-

rant. This addition is the work of Swiss architect Mario Botta, who chose to create a building with a decidedly contemporary feel, which, through its transparencies, relates to the natural setting of the large park that surrounds the hotel: a rectangle of glass supported by columns made of red Vosges sandstone and covered by a green roof. The 200sq m dining room, which offers a soothing view of the greenery, is dominated by three chandeliers made by Windfall and the black bar that leads to the kitchen of the starred chef, Jean George Klein. But the real surprise of this architectural extension is the wine cellar located in the basement, where glass returns to the spotlight with the vast and precious heritage of 12,000 bottles collected over the years: the cases are exposed behind the large windows that emphasize the whole circumference of the room lit by warm, amber lights. The wine cellar also ‘conserves’, on the connecting stairs between the two floors, 14 decorative glass panels by Damien Hirst, who chose the butterfly, a decorative motif dear to René Lalique, to create the Eternal series.

The View, a hospitality jewel in Lugano The design for this small, but perfect hotel, with stunning views of the lake, takes inspiration from yachts

T

he View is a small boutique hotel in a residential complex at a location near Lugano with a decidedly evocative name – Paradiso. For a hospitality venue, that is already a good omen. Situated in a 40,000 sq m forest with panoramic views over the lake and mountains, The View, opened in October 2015, definitely looks promising. The residential Emerald Living complex, designed and built between 2011 and 2014 by Luca Gazzaniga Architects, is constructed on a slope at the foot of Monte Salvatore and consists of a group of autonomous structures, with different heights and in varying combinations, which house penthouses, apartments and individual residences. The order and restraint of the facades, which feature large windows and wide terraces, is emphasized by a kind of graphic design that frames the geometry of the balconies and is repeated in all the buildings, creating a recognizable icon and a dynamic effect.

A vast terrace of over 600 sq m distinguishes the low-rise building designed in the original development plan to accommodate the hotel. The space is valuable both for the relationship that it creates with the environment and visual setting, and for its versatility, which meets the organizational requirements of the structure. The communal areas are on this floor, many of which overlook the terrace: a reception and concierge, offices and store-rooms, a kitchen and restaurant for 150 people, a lounge bar, two rooms for events and meetings (around 60 seats), a gym, six thalassotherapy lounges and a 500 sq m spa with a pool. The first and second floors contain sixteen large 50 sq m rooms and two 100 sq m suites. All of which, naturally, have a terrace and lake views. The structure and organization of the building resembles that of a cruise ship. Car access and first registration takes place in the basement which contains 39 private parking spaces.

In the harmony of the fluid space, the theme of light consists of a slight contrast of white on white, the milky and opaque white of walls, ceilings and furniture enlivened by more artificial accents and vivid light bulbs.

Ascending to the top floors, which house the private spaces of the rooms, white gives way to the more natural, darker tones of teak to create intimate, comfortable spaces with an open layout that differs from typical hotel rooms - they are more like mini-suites, thanks to their generous 50 sq m dimensions. Wood is used for the furniture, as well as for long strips on mirror paneling to cover the walls and to insert partition screens between different functional areas of the room, such as the bedroom and living area and the bathroom area, which remains visible as an integral part of the décor.

Circular wellness among flavours and fragrances Villa Gallici, situated in the heart of Provence, presents a new interpretation of elegant hospitality

H

oused in an 18th century Provencal villa not far from Aix-en-Provence, Villa Gallici is a Relais Ch창teau owned by the Italian Baglioni Hotels chain, which also takes care of its management. The Milan firm Rebosio + Spagnulo, which has a successful track record of hospitality projects beyond its work for Baglioni Hotels, was commissioned to build an extension for the location and to undertake the interior design of the new spaces. The project involved the construction of an outdoor swimming pool, a spa and a wine cellar for wine tasting. 120 | IFDM

The designers took the existing building and its relationship with the rich, well-maintained garden that surrounds the property as a starting point for the project. The primary objective was to transform the geographical borders into synergies between the functional old building and the new structure, in terms of the choice of forms and materials and their arrangement in spaces that represented the crux of the design project.

CONTRACT& HOSPITALITY

The idea for the design was developed around the concept of “circular wellness”, a notion that allows guests to make use of multiple senses: the spa and wine cellar embody two different wellness philosophies and the mood of the environment created by Rebosio + Spagnulo unites these two identities with refined and elegant interior choices, which never neglect detail in favour of an overall effect. Soft curves, precious materials, symbolic decor: the result is a warm and hospitable environment, which goes beyond the Provencal setting in its traditional sense, defining its own style and character. Oak and natural stone dominate the rooms, while typical Southern French decorations and musical notes carved in the iron doors of the wine cellar represent an interior design language that is the result of many languages combined with measure and balance - balance that is complex and simple at the same time. Rebosio + Spagnulo’s ten years of experience in the hospitality industry has always led the couple to use Made in Italy products, selecting top-end companies for major orders. In the case of Villa Gallici, they used Gabana Arredamenti for the “custom” features, Zucchetti for taps and fittings, Domus Market for fabrics and upholstery and Ferrart for doors, windows and the external iron staircase. 122 | IFDM

The interlocking home/suite At Michelberger Hotel in Berlin, Sigurd Larsen adds two suites designed as a “home in a room”

L

ocated in the Friedrichshain district, the Michelberger Hotel is an independent hotel managed by the owners who have transformed a residential building into a hotel that offers guests an informal, comfortable, almost domestic atmosphere. A large house with a mix of new and vintage furniture in the indoor and outdoor communal areas and customized environments for every room or studio apartment, each with their own personality, all functional, fun and featuring a natural material such as wood as their leitmotif. Wood prevails, for example, in the two suites designed by Sigurd Larsen - an architect born and trained in Denmark who has run a firm in Berlin since

2009 - in collaboration with the owners Nadine May and Tom Michelberger. Room 204, or The House of Doors, and 304, or The Gardenhouse, are suites that fall into the ‘Hideout’ category: 50sq m dominated by light and natural pine wood, perfectly arranged and well-lit, in which, as well as sleeping, you can cook, work, socialize, take a sauna and unwind. The House of Doors is truly a room with a ‘view’: two doors and five windows at staggered heights open onto the bright living area and blend into the white wall when they close: the compact kitchen, bath, guest room, corridor and beyond it, a second concealed inner corridor, all feature other doors and

windows of varying heights. The spaces and functions of the suites are precisely created and positioned - nothing is left unused, taking advantage of the double height of the space and full layout. The theme of multiple openings is repeated in The Gardenhouse suite, where it is combined with the theme of an internal-external relationship. A wooden space (which is also in natural whitewashed pine), with the iconic shape of a small single-family dwelling, is placed at the centre of the room to form an inside/home in harmony with an outside/garden. The ‘home’ features a bedroom, sauna, kitchen and second bedroom on several levels, while the ‘garden’ hosts the shower, a small swimming poolbath and the living area.

Hannover

Prizeotel Hannover, the energy of colour and forms This low-budget, design hotel is the third in the chain and once again bears the signature of Karim Rashid

T

he street-facing side of number 50, Hamburger Allee, in Hannover appears almost monotonous, with regular windows on a uniform brick facade. But you only have to approach it and pass through the inviting fuchsia glass door leading to the Prizeotel reception, for a stimulating and ‘immersive’ experience. The Hannover hotel is the third hotel in the chain founded by Marco Nussbaum and Matthias Zimmermann in 2006 with the aim of offering guests design hotels at affordable prices. Like the other two opened in Bremen and Hamburg, this latest hotel, completed in December 2015, was designed by the prolific Karim Rashid, who imagined spaces, interiors and objects - from cutlery to rooms to communal areas - and above all created a playful, unique ‘atmosphere’ and a recognizable brand. For Rashid, design aims “to improve the poetic, aesthetic, experiential, sensory and emotional content of our lives”, and the Prizeotel is an excellent synthesis of his design philosophy. The use of colour and forms gives the interior spaces ‘body’ and impacts the user’s experience of that space. 126 | IFDM

Private and public environments are rich and dense without being intrusive, characterized by a generous use of colour and the seductive and soft design of the forms. Varying colour shades over wide backgrounds in a ‘brazen’ palette that combines glossy white used as a ‘background’ with more saturated colours and optical effects: from the fuchsia of the entrance to the range of violet and cornflower blue for the coatings on the walls and floors, to lemon yellow, the alter ego of white and black, spread everywhere in the service facilities and interiors, to emphasize curves, backgrounds and proportions. Service facilities define environments and functions, becoming true visual ‘landmarks’: the reception desk, which first welcomes the guest and then extends in an irregular trajectory and continues to form the space for the bar, or the monolithic buffet that stands at the centre of the breakfast room. The characteristic features are irregular but smooth, enriched by abundant content and graphic elements, such as asymmetric cuts for ceiling lighting, optical designs for coatings, the open storage space of the mobile wardrobe in the rooms, the headboard of the bed and the bathroom mirrors.
