OPEN SEASON: Hi Hotel is bringing a jolt of modern design to the French Riviera.
The new boutique hotel, which recently opened in Nice, is the brainchild of Matalli Crasset, an interior architect and graphic designer who trained under Philippe Starck. The main point of departure for the 38 rooms is open-plan layouts, with bedroom and bathroom mingled in a single area. Instead of walls, Crasset often employs plants as partitions. One room has multiple levels for different activities like washing, sleeping and relaxing.
