The Bel-Air is a luxury concept hotel ideally suited for Los Angeles. The design pays homage to Ettore Sotsass, one of the masters of post-modern design, as well as the palate and attitude of David Hockney’s pool series. The overall design combines a dizzying amount of different patterns, shapes, and textures, however each space and each graphic element, manage to find equilibrium in the chaos through a restricted and relaxed pastel colour palate. Each of the pieces designed echo an environmental element; for example, when overlapped, the menus for the various dining spaces match the giant marble slabs used in the lobby as well as the geometric murals in the guest suites. The Bel-Air aims to not just be a hotel, but a design destination for both locals and travelers who want to be transported out of the monotony of daily life and into another time.
