SUNDAY: Nhow Hotel. I decided to take the day off from the shows, partly to save my energies for the coming week and partly because I wanted to see the Martin Margiela exhibition, see a movie and to take a look at the Nhow Hotel designed by Matteo Thun. The Nhow is situated in the old General Electric building in the new trendy Tornona/Savona area of Milan. The area of ex factories that now houses photographic studios, fashion and design showrooms, as well as, Armani’s theater. Nhow reinterprets spaces and times, services and functions, in a mood that wraps you as soon as you enter, from the hall to the suites. The common areas are filled with design, (like the Jacopo Foggini chandeliers, above) and unique works of art, as well as, experimental videos and photographs which are projected every day for guests to enjoy and, they are all for sale. Nhow is a new experience in hotel living dedicated to an avant-guard, sophisticated and international clientele.
Note: I loved the detail of the water coming from above in the loos near the lobby. Click on the image to enlarge.
