Today we present the Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel. The Madrid-based Italian studio Ilmio design has transformed a previously functional 16-year-old block of holiday apartments, into an art deco-style building that now houses the new Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel.
Recalling a kitsch and colorful 1970s Miami, the firm incorporated cantilevers, curve-edged balconies, and vertical fins into the building’s façade, which is now washed in a showy pink.
Inside, taking inspirations from shapes, styles, and chromatics that became popular in Italy in the 1960s and 70s, spearheaded by the likes of the Archizoom group. Each room features a headboard above the bed in the style of the ultrafragola mirror that Ettore Sottsass designed for Poltronova in 1970, while Archizoom’s signature neon lighting is seen throughout the hotel.
Elsewhere, the hotel’s facilities are bound to keep you busy, but you’re likely to find us lounging beside one of the two shimmering pools, or perhaps getting a bite in at Andy’s, the restaurant, which serves a range of crowd-pleasers from beef sirloin brochettes to veggie bowls packed with goodies including quinoa, tofu, houmous, and edamame.
