Grand Hotel Duchi d’Aosta - Rooms | Concept 1
The design of the new rooms was divided into due concepts and began with the requirement that they describe the connotative aspects of the city of Trieste: complexity, contrast, and reflection.
The first concept involved the insertion of a contemporary box within the heritage of the preexisting space of each room. This volume encloses a walk-in wardrobe and bathroom, circumscribed by thin vertical and horizontal reflective surfaces. The box is dressed in high-quality materials, such as Rubelli damask fabrics, fiberglass wallpaper, and floor mosaics. Meanwhile, the walls of the room are dotted with plaster moldings, whose colors accompany its textures— the bed fabrics, the upholstery, and the Dedar satin curtains.
The lights in the bedrooms have been designed to form three scenarios: welcome, night, and relaxation lighting to put the guests at ease. The project, designed by Bianca Tresoldi, provides for the indirect lighting of the marmorino ceilings, an accent light to emphasize the wall paintings, luminous highlights around the furniture, and hanging lamps made from transparent blown glass.
