Mama Shelter: your design haven

| Designbest editorial staff

M

ama Shelter is a small family of boutique hotels, based on a very simple idea: a trendy  environment, which is fun, reasonably priced and above all, welcoming to people of all ages, incomes and nationality. Mama Shelter is the latest business venture of the Trigano clan, the same people behind Club Med, and none other than Philippe Starck. Stark has personally designed the interiors of each hotel.

 

The first Mama Shelter opened in Paris in 2008 and since then, more have sprung: Marseilles, Bordeaux, Lyon, Istanbul, as well as one soon to be opened in Los Angeles. This is a winning formula. The reason of this success is a simple one: these hotels are simply enchanting.

 

Plain on the outside but bold on the inside with an explosion of colours, shapes and graphics. There are large social spaces and huge roof terraces, furnished to complement restaurants, bars and exposed kitchens. These spaces are full of artistic flair, yet extremely chilled and not at all fussy. Here, visitors can meet each other, eat (very well!), have a few drinks and maybe even play a game of table tennis or foosball while listening to a live gig. Each room is a design heaven with extremely comfortable beds, flat-screen TVs and an unconventional décor: traditional furniture is placed alongside superhero memorabilia and extracts from Victor Hugo and Jim Morrison written on walls and flooring.

 

Being at Mama Shelter is like if Starck talked to you using the language of design. And if we had to translate it, these hotels would say: “Make yourself comfy and don't let anything bother you, just like at mum's place”.
