The Aman Hotel in Venice is considered one of the most prestigious and well designed hotels of the past year. One of the great choices by the designer was to make use of the Maxalto collection from B&B Italia, creating a beautiful contrast to a very classical interior. The transition between the different eras is very seamless, keeping the design timeless. The main furniture pieces were from the Febo line, which is of a very smooth and contemporary design.
A designer who hasn't been in the spotlight for her interior works because this is her first is non other than Nika Zupanc who is well known for her product designs never the less for top brands such as Moroso and Moooi. I found out about her work back in 2010 when I posted about her feminine range of furniture.
The first think that attracted me in this project was the beautiful chair, I know it's not a new design but something about it reminds me of the elegance of the Harry Bertoia chair but with a more updated twist to the legs since it was designed in 2010 by Jaime Hayon for Magis. The cherry pendants were designed by Nika herself in 2009. The other details however, such as the sinks, were custom made for this project.
I am not usually a fan of strong colors such as black and red together, but here they work magically together. The rippling feminine details of the furniture are mellowed down by the strong black and red. This project is just beautiful.
