New Hotel by The Campana Brothers

Brazilian designers Humberto and Fernando Campana have completed their first hotel interior. Architecture graduates from the University of Thessaly assisted the brothers with the refurbishment of the 79-room hotel in Athens, now known as New Hotel, for the Yes! Hotels chain.

Walls in the reception and restaurant are covered in a jumble of wooden scraps like those used for the designer’s famous Favela Chairs, which can be found in some of the bedrooms. Bedrooms also feature wall-mounted fairy-tale characters and glass eyeballs, which symbolise elements of Greek mythology and superstition. Bathrooms contain faceted brass washbasins designed to look like fragmented rocks.

A 1940s marble staircase is retained and surrounding walls are lined with tree bark that has been processed into wallpaper.
