In this refined boutique hotel, each space is a work of art in itself. Menorca Experimental was decorated by interior designer Dorothée Meilichzon as a cosy artist's holiday home with a warm, vibrant, rustic soul.
The award-winning designer Dorothée Meilichzon is the founder of CHZON, a global design studio specialising in hospitality design. She has already realised projects all over the world including in Menorca, Spain where we find this beautiful and unique Menorca Experimental hotel.
Art and local craftsmanschip are central in this rustic boutique hotel
The hotel was designed as a summer residence for an imaginary artist. This is evident in the vibrant colour palette and the artful decoration of the rooms and common areas. ‘The overall aesthetic of the hotel was made to be inspired,’ we hear from Meilichzon. The starting point for CHZON was to use some of the Menorcan savoir faire and local materials. That's why we find lots of stone, concrete, terracotta, semi-circular shapes, architraves, wooden shutters, leather and unique details and drawings. The furniture was made by local craftsmen to Meilichzon's design. There are also custom-made elements such as lighting installations by Lea Munsch made of special clay, graphic works by Karel Balas including illustrations inspired by Miro and Picasso and handwoven blankets by LRNCE. In addition to the classic white walls, there is a warm palette of terracotta, peach and green colours with rich blue and rattan details throughout the hotel. There is a very airy, open and lively atmosphere in all rooms with a touch of understated luxury. Photographer: Karel Balas
