Situated in one of the buildings designed by the Rationalist Italian architect Marcello Piacentini between 1932 and 1945, the Hotel Royal Bissolati is a project by King Roselli Architetti, a Roman firm known for numerous successful projects in the field of hospitality.
The clean and rigorous style of the building meets the minimal and industrial-cut choices made by the architects. The use of walnut wood, the only essence chosen for the interiors, is engaged in a dynamic relationship of geometry with metal, i.e. brass and black iron.
Devoto Design manufactured the fit-out elements of the rooms and of the common areas. The latter are mastered by a large brass desk grafted onto a back structure made of opaque glass textured on a metal frame. In the rooms the founding elements are the large walnut volume of the services accessed via a sliding panel and the trellis, a slender walnut element with functional metal elements: folded tops that in some cases are covered in black leather. The windows are internally lined in black iron with a graphic element on which the motorized curtains can slide. The chromatic choice of the forest green on the functional wall is related to the choice of total white on the rest of the walls and the “dark” two-tone Venetian floor.
