The second Mama Shelter was launched in Marseille on April, 2012. I must say that the hotel design by Philippe Starck created an impression. I am a fan of minimalism but even though this hospitality design did not exhibit minimalism at all I can still say that its authenticity got me.
Starck did not just utilized his own trademark for the design of this boutique hotel he also added visual overload to create an overwhelming experience to the senses by combining too much of the design, color, prints and furniture in this new beautiful hotel. In fact, there is more than enough to the hotel interiors than my senses could follow. Other people might call this a mess and really unorganized but to someone who has an eye for art and the ‘messy’ kind of look abstraction creates this amazing hotel is a masterpiece.
Philippe Starck has design a hotel that defies everything related to ‘standard and tradition’ and it has created a new level of hotel experience that’s very unique and authentic. Looking at the individual rooms and the restaurant areas, they are indeed very pleasing to look at and the meeting rooms would stand out if we’re talking about the hotel features alone.
The hotel interior design by Philippe Starck gave rise to unpredictable encounters. Every inch of the room allows you to explore and discover a little something in return. Mama Shelter is more than just a hotel – it has become the core of life where people gather for a simple meal and probably enjoy defining moments with a live band.
I might make an understatement if I say that this hotel design by Philippe Starck is just ‘stylish’ because it’s definitely more than that. The touch of a Mediterranean style keeps you on your feet and it is the kind of top design that will leave a mark even after you check out. This is what Mama Shelter’s vision – creating a place that tells its own unique story to the world.
