ELLE DECOR GRAND HOTEL offers visitors a personal experience, thanks to rooms especially for socialising, reading, wellness and hospitality, leaving them free to explore bedrooms, lounges and gardens. Two exceptional names behind the project also in the hotel sector: Piero Lissoni, who designed the project for the public areas, conceived as those of a “Hôtel Particulier”, and Patricia Urquiola who designed the more private rooms, the “Stanzas”.

“I thought of the Grand Hotel bedroom”, says Spanish architect and designer Patricia Urquiola, “avoiding an interpretation in serial, repetitive ‘sample room’ style, preferring to imagine a series of rooms as the separate moments in a story. This led to the ambiguity of the title: ‘Stanzas’, which sounds like a Spanish word but instead refers to the various verses in ‘Stanzas in Meditation’ (1929), a collection of poems by Gertrude Stein.
