An urban hotel in Nice designed by matali crasset.
HI is a high-end hotel that departs from the traditional codes of luxury.
Just 200 meters from the Mediterranean and the Promenade des Anglais, HI invites you to revel in your experience as you explore its contemporary-living spaces.
Patrick Elouarghi and Philippe Chapelet are responsible for opening and operating HI. HI is the first global environment designed and created by matali crasset.
HI features 10 concepts and 38 rooms.
Each concept is based on a unique way of organising space, of living and experimenting. That means these are not decorative themes but rather typologies that yield alternatives to spaces that are usually highly codified.
The room becomes a structure for welcoming micro-events in relation to the concept of the space. In this
way, comfort goes beyond mere physical or visual comfort.
This is comfort at work, produced by the generosity and simplicity of the structures which, like operating instructions, invite us to take advantage of the present moment.
These spaces are based on an openness of volumes, a non-specialisation of structures. This has the effect of smoothing the transition from one activity to another and of sharing one’s experiences.
