Set up in a former factory, the Nhow hotel in Milan is a microcosm of design and art offering exhibition spaces where furniture and facilities can be adapted to suit the needs of a wide range of cultural and social events. Right in the heart of Milan’s fashionable Via Tortona, the Nhow Milano hotel is an artistic, cosmopolitan home-from-home, great for exploring all the Design District has to offer. One of the best places to stay in during Expo Milano 2015, if you are visiting this amazing event.
Nhow hotel Milano was designed by Matteo Thun & Partners , world famous architecture and interior design firm and is also very famous for their innovative product design department.
Their projects are sustainable, both in terms of environmental sustainability and durability of performance and aesthetic. A simple appearance and natural materials prevail in product design, bringing objects to life which come close to the iconography of their archetype and stay away from stylistic ‘isms’ in both small and large-scale projects.
The hotel interiors present a chameleonic, metropolitan mix of no-design and one-off pieces by artists and designers. The corridors are tunnels where to admire works inspired by street art and graffiti that have been interspersed among the cast-iron columns. The hotel’s 249 rooms and the 260 sqm presidential suite are designed like lofts with furnishings that can be freely arranged.
Sculptures by Jacopo Foggini, resin chandeliers and custom-made furnishings by Matteo Thun animate the restaurant and bar, which are flexibly divisible into private areas.
