Concept of Ora-Ïto
Few edges and angles – or barely visible – hidden, broken angles, replaced by flowing, soft and delicate lines reinforce the impression of smoothness of the textures (oak wood, felt and corian) and make this place a simplified ideal, a “zen hotel” that soothes the senses.
A signature piece inspired by hotel Odyssey, the shift¬ing wave in sculpted wood on the lobby’s wall, undulates, flows like a living and breathing form – with gill-like wooden slats. The same purity with the plant totem, symbol of organic design (which the designer is very fond of) – half-pil¬lar, half-tree - on its synthetic plantlike carpet, seems to take root, curl up and ascend to the hotel’s floors.
Created with a contemporary and futuristic approach, the 29 capsule-rooms have been arranged following the philosophy of “simplexity”. They decline 29 tones of the chromatic scale (madder red, petrol blue, absinth green…). The very functional space is structured around very few things; everything is at arm’s length.
