Atelier sul mare: the Art of receiving Italian style

Along love story ties artists and hotels to one another. The Atelier Sul Mare in Sicily, 20 km from Cefalu, marks another level in their relationship: fifteen of its forty rooms are veritable works of art realised by artists that are as high ranking as Piero Dorazio, Maurizio Mochetti, Hidetoshi Nagasawa, Andres Serrano and Paolo Icaro... These designers with their very different sources all share a certain audacity and a taste for experimentation, and were invited to take a room, furnish it, decorate it and rearrange it as they saw fit. Thence, clients experience an all-new dimension: spend the night, not only surrounded by works of art, but within one. In the room “Energia”, the artists work researches light: the room transforms radically by exposing it to daylight or a warm red light that places voluntarily oversized furniture in a new perspective. In the room “Linea d’ombra”, the bath was carved out of the terrace giving the striking impression of floating on the neighbouring sea through the use of perspectives. Some rooms convey a message, such as “Sogni Tra Segni”, a veritable reflection on utopia, freedom and what stands in their way... this highly conceptual space does not, however, disregard the values of comfort and reception, as each room/work was conceived with one fundamental idea in mind: it is the client who gives the room life and meaning through his evolution within the room.
