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 / ODE TO URANIA

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. The wall above the ground floors’ ancient findings, adorns a head-turning text sculpture embracing fluidity and movement. A Homer’s poem praising Aphrodite takes shape through laser-cut letters made of brass, alluding to the silverness of the ancient drachma coin. The overall impression is intended to resemble a ripple effect. Together, the letters form an undulating liquid surface that changes colors according to light.
