When I worked at JHD Dunant Hotel, I thought about a space which should have been able to use emotions as a true “search engine”. Everybody has got inside himself different search instruments, everyone has his own route and I like the idea to offer in the spaces that I designed a sort of sentimental navigation that uses visual arts, 3D, sculpture, conceptual  graphic, material, to sum up heart and intellect.

Inevitably I thought about a hotel where I could rediscover emotion and pleasure of sharing: far from the estrangement of rooms that are all alike and in which customers only “park” themselves for one night and turn off their brain. On the contrary JHD has been conceived to develop one’s own personal emotion, to arouse curiosity, to question the guest, taking him far from the daily banality and weariness.
