ABSTRACT

COCO-MAT HOTEL ATHENS B.C.

Coco-Mat Hotels & Resorts latest addition; a five-star luxury hotel with breathtaking views to the Acropolis and the modern Athenian landscape.



PROJECT URANIA / ELEVATORS

A threefold art venture in collaboration with visual artist Gabriel Leger. The rich past of the historic district exhumed ancient myths and legends that informed three bespoke artworks now spanning the hotel’s main entrance, lobby, and elevators. For the elevators, all five of them are covered top to bottom with handcrafted copper panels illustrating different perspectives of the star chart. We wanted to transform them into celestial cabins rising up in the sky; an idea deriving from Aphrodite Urania tortoise’s arched shell that symbolizes the arc of the heavens.
