7 Lodges With Remarkably Influential Inside Design
Parco dei Principi Lodge by Gio Ponti
Like Arne Jacobsen, Gio Ponti designed each element of the Parco dei Principi Lodge, which opened in 1962 in Sorrento, the gateway to Italy’s glamorous Amalfi Coast. Impressed by the infinite blue of the Mediterranean, Ponti adhered to a strictly blue-and-white shade scheme, designing geometric tiles, fittings, and furnishings, and the pool’s linear diving platform. His drawings and explanations might be seen in a everlasting show within the foyer together with key design items he created for the resort.
Morgans Lodge by Andrée Putman
Boutique accommodations are ubiquitous now, however Morgans Lodge in New York Metropolis ushered within the craze for small, design-forward accommodations in fashionable city neighborhoods when it opened in 1984. Dreamed up by Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell, who tapped French designer Andrée Putman for the interiors, Morgans epitomized pared-down class with a contact of the unconventional (think about the black-and-white checkerboard loos). The resort closed in 2017 and was transformed into micro-apartments.
Delano South Seaside by Philippe Starck
Additionally conceived by Ian Schrager, the Delano in South Seaside opened in 1995 with an *Alice in Wonderland–*impressed design by Philippe Starck. In distinction to the moderately sober Morgans, the Delano’s design is all about playful type that borders on the surreal. Take the outsized Starck sofa and crystal piano within the foyer, the gold Leda chair sculpted with high-heeled ft by Salvador Dalí, and the picket Calvet armchair by Antoni Gaudí as proof. In distinction, the rooms bear a monochromatic white-on-white scheme.
