ROOMMATE GIULIA HOTEL
The boutique hotel Room Mate Giulia, in Milan -a few steps from the Duomo-, is a great example of GAN’s custom capabilities. Patricia Urquiola, a regular collaborator of GAN and creator of some of its most recognized collections, was charged with designing the interiors of this Italian hotel, and she has done it in her usual style: full of color and personality. One of the key elements of the space is the rugs that decorate the lobby, pieces designed by Urquiola and created especially by GAN for this project.
The rugs are reminiscent of a tiled floor and combine white, navy blue and sky blue tones -the second model that features green tones- with a discontinuous pattern in coral, which brings warmth and joy to an eclectic room that combines traditional elements with the most innovative accents, as we often find in Urquiola’s designs. One has the feeling that these rugs are essential and that, were they not there, the space would lack a soul.
