In the elegant, contemporary interiors of the Hotel Miramonti, restyled by Michele Vitaloni of Charmitaliastudio, the materials provided the unifying theme in the architectural project, especially the use of the Grande Marble Look collection.

In the secluded, high-class Roma Imperiale district of Forte dei Marmi, the top resort on the Versilia coast, architect Michele Vitaloni of Charmitaliastudio, was artistic director for the entire project for the restyling of Hotel Miramonti.

Large spaces in contemporary style furnished with simple lines and in natural shades welcome guests as soon as they walk into the hotel’s generously sized, light-filled foyer. The rooms, of different types and with no two identical, are located on the ground, first and second (“tower”) floor, and share a common denominator: the careful choice of materials, including ceramics, marbles and woods, which create original, comfortable interiors. “Our task is to give clients not what they want but what they would never have dared to dream of,” explains Michele Vitaloni of Charmitaliastudio.

The architecture firm opted for leading brands of Italian excellence, including Marazzi, and chose the new Grande Marble Look collection, which reinterprets 25 types of natural marble in the large 120×120 cm and 120×240 cm sizes, in Frappuccino, Golden White and Capraia colours with thickness of 6 mm and Lux finish for the rooms and bathrooms, including some striking details. In the sleeping area, the porcelain stoneware tiles were placed above the beds just like signed paintings, and used to create inserts in the wall coverings with vertical effects, also over the nightstands. In the bathrooms, the large slabs are the chief interior design feature, forming attractive colour contrasts with the multiple veining patterns and shade variations of natural marble in the shower zones, sanitary fixtures, and the customised counters and vanity units. Marazzi’s outstanding technologies and the excellent light weight, malleability and strength of this material, together with the digital reproduction which has recreated the look of marble in this collection, enabled the architect to include various compositions and inlays, also with other materials.
