Design afficionados take note! The Mandarin Oriental in Milan has just launched two gorgeous hotel suites, inspired by two great Milanese design masters – Piero Fornasetti and Gio Ponti.
Fornasetti's decorative tongue-in-cheek style takes residence in the Milano Suite (above), which has original Fornasetti pieces such as the Ultime Notizie table and Capitello chairs in the dining area, and the Fly coffee table, the Guscio sofa and a Boss black leather armchair. The central pillar in this space is covered in Riflesso wallpaper. Other features include a Spoon XL bath tub, a writing desk from the ‘Farfalle’ collection in the bedroom and an ‘Architettura’ console table in the corridor.
The Premier Suite, inspired by the modernist style of Gio Ponti, is decorated in black walnut panelling. Stand-out furniture pieces include Mangiarotti’s Eros marble table illuminated by an iconic 2097-30/50 Sarfatti chandelier. There is also an original console table by Gio Ponti and Citterio’s Simpliciter sofa. The bedroom is furnished with navy blue textiles that harmonise with the upholstered Catilina armchair, while the bathroom features a Spoon XL bathtub alongside the Cilindro pouf.
A night at one of these amazing Designer Suites will set you back EUR2,050. Find out more at www.mandarinoriental.com.
