THE RESORT’S NEW INTERIORS and restaurant terrace by reveria

 

the charm of the landscape around mandarin oriental, lago di como resonates in the atmosphere of the renovated villa della quercia, in the absolute attention to details and in the choice of each object that makes up the whole environment. italian style guides reveria studio’s overall design, from the clean shapes and material consistency, to the handcrafted design objects found throughout the space. the villa’s floors have been replaced with a typical oak parquet that plays with the classic bindello, a distinctive pattern of italian villas. meanwhile, the long existing walls, which measure over 12 meters, have been transformed into internal landscapes thanks to a metal structure that can contain works of art, mirrors, decorative elements and wallpaper made with the traditional silk of como.

 

each work of art in the villa is the result of the collaboration with milanese art gallery the pool NYC. additionally, artists have specifically conceived and created their works for this interior project after having being invited to personally experience lake como and the resort itself. each book has been carefully selected by the rizzoli bookstore from new york, while handcrafted objects in marble, glass and ceramic made in collaboration with italian artisans complete the unique space, which feels more like a home than hotel. as a reference to the east, some decorative details, textiles and objects from flea markets have been deliberately inserted to create a bridge between the origins of the mandarin oriental hotel group and the italian artisan tradition.
