Designer Patrick Norguet along with Olivier Devys came up with the concept of OKKO hotels which is all about an all-included package of best location, best service, and best price. This is how the idea of the contemporary and urban four star hotel OKKO was developed. The designer wanted “ a place unaffected by time or trends and where the notions of service and comfort are essential; to be able to work, dine, relax, be waited on or use anything freely, any time of the day; to feel like being home away from home. The high-end amenities and services in the modern and relaxing Okko room and in the vast and convivial Club room make the Okko hotel a unique place that combines aesthetics and comfort.”

The main features are the pendant light in the center and custom made honey comb copper wall. The seating is mostly ‘lounging’ with large booths and armchairs that are part of the designer’s collection.
