The Elle Decor Grand Hotel project investigates and analyses the evolution of interior design and the idea of hôtellerie since 2016. International design firms transform the interiors of Palazzo Morando into ad hoc-installations, where the visitors are able to experience the new instances and functions of the hospitality.

The edition of this year saw the involvement of Lyndon Neri e Rossana Hu, co-founders of the Neri&Hu Design and Research Office. Starting from Italo Calvino’s novel “Invisible Cities”, the architects developed a story that evolves visually, functionally and emotionally through ten theme-settings. Each room tells something peculiar and gives heterogeneous stimuli to the visitor by linking the Eastern tradition with the Western one.

Mutina took part as well to the realization of the temporary hotel, that can be visited from October 5th to 21st: Ceramica collection has been used in the Suite installation, the most private part that, being open to the public, brings into question the idea of privacy in the living spaces.
