Striking designer digs by lauded architect Ron Arad in the ritzy Italian beach town of Rimini
In the ritzy Italian beach resort of Rimini, the DuoMo is a striking design hotel created by Israeli-born, London-based architect Ron Arad. From the exterior, clad in burnished bronze, to the reception desk, embedded in a tilted polished steel ring, the eclectic property epitomizes the designer's futuristic vision. The 43 guestrooms are arranged over four floors by color (magenta, lime-green, purple and red) and showcase Arad's signature pieces, including his Bookworm shelves and Ripple chairs. Above the beds (which are topped with silk throws by Bologna-based designer Chiara Castelli), giant circular windows peer through to the pod-like bathrooms, which are kitted out with white porcelain fixtures by Alessi. The rooms are sparsely decorated with tiny bedside tables, a glass wardrobe and a curved work desk. The lobby-level noMi bar-club is a see-and-be-seen spot for cocktails and tapas-style dishes. The hefty bronze bar is flanked by mirrored steel columns, and one of the walls is a sliding glass door that allows revelers to spill out onto Rimini's historic streets.
In the Area
Visit Rimini's Tempio Malatestiano, which was first built in the 1200s as a Gothic cathedral and then transformed in the 15th century into a kind of Renaissance Taj Mahal. Stroll around the city's old fishing quarter, Borgo San Giuliano, a patchwork of cobbled lanes lined with trattorias, and pop into Osteria de Borg to tuck into traditional Italian dishes. Rimini is one of Italy's most popular beach resorts, and the coastline stretches for 24 miles. The private beaches charge a daily fee for the use of cabanas, umbrellas and beach chairs. Or you can grab a gelato and wander along the seafront promenade.
