Marc Newson was born in Sydney, Australia, where he studied jewellery and sculpture.
The luxury and comfort of simplicity
Simplicity and comfort are the two adjectives that best describe Newson’s design on the sixth floor.
Marc Newson opted for wood lacquered a brilliant red for the furnishings in the lobby and hallways. The floor alternates wool carpeting with marble. The goal is to envelop the guest in a provocative, modern yet relaxing atmosphere.
In the rooms, Newson mainly blends white and grey. The bed is a type of island, an oasis isolated from the other elements and surrounded by leather, used in both the headboard and the nightstand. The floor is oiled oak parquet made of wide panels that provide a touch of warmth to the interior design.
In the bathroom he has chosen Statuario Venato marble from the Carrara quarries. It is a single piece and the seam can be seen, an utter luxury for guests.
