Following a significant architectural, engineering and interior design intervention by the CaberlonCaroppi studio, the Umiltà 36 Luxury Hotel has reopened to the public in Rome. The style philosophy of the five star luxury hotel, designed for an international and cosmopolitan clientele, found its match with Gessi, a brand which represents the excellence Italian design with the Made in Italy ethos at its core. With this in mind, the architects chose a made-to-measure version of the Inciso collection by Gessi to furnish the hotel bathrooms.
“As part of the Umiltà 36 Luxury Hotel project in Rome, we chose Gessi for the bathroom fittings, because we felt that its Inciso collection was a perfect match for the interior design style. We wanted to customise the taps, and Gessi followed us in this with great flexibility and professionalism,” explained the architects of the CaberlonCaroppi studio. “We chose two finishes: Brushed Brass for the rooms on the second and third floors and Black Metal Brushed, similar to gunmetal, for those on the fourth and fifth floors. The result, combined then with the sanitary ware chosen, fully satisfies us and contributes to embellishing the bathroom spaces of this structure.”
Designed by Gessi in collaboration with David Rockwell, Inciso is a unique collection that on one hand reveals the genuine emotion of ancient Italian craftsmanship and on the other hand, the most innovative technologies used for working brass. A new aesthetic code characterised by modern shapes, enlightened by a contemporary touch, in details and finishes.
Both the chosen finishes embody strength, integrity and quality, with the aim of conveying the emotion and authenticity of ancient manufacturing in perfect harmony with the technological processing of materials, together with a texture that emphasises the sensory experience.
