Spaces: Joseph Dirand: Distrito Capital Hotel

. Friday, November 13, 2009

"The Distrito Capital hotel opened earlier this year in the Santa Fe neighbourhood of Mexico City. The 30 room hotel features interiors designed by French architect Joseph Dirand.

Surprising interiors, dazzling panoramic views and double-height ceilings are a few of the eye-catching highlights of Distrito Capital. Located in the highest area of Mexico City – the skyscraper district of Santa Fe – this hotel is a testament to how cool Mexico’s capital has become in recent years.

Designed around the idea of creative minimalism, the 30 well-appointed guestrooms and suites look more like chic art spaces than hotel rooms. Any visitor will be simultaneously awed by impeccable design touches and excited by personal service flourishes. Fashionable without being zeitgeist-y, the inviting décor allows visitors to truly kick back and relax.

The monochromatic interiors feature a host of 20th century modernism, including: Verner Panton Spiegel lamps, an Augusto Bozzi lounge chair, Wim Rietveld armchairs surrounding Hans Wegner coffee tables, Dieter Rams sound systems (wow!), Poul Kjaerholm daybed, Eero Saarinen Tulip tables with wood legged Executive armchairs, Hans Wegner Elbow chairs, Charlotte Perriand bookshelves, Warren Platner coffee table, Serge Mouille 3 arm wall lamps, and Saarinen/Eames Organic armchairs. There are some contemporary furnishings by notable designers as well, including Tom Dixon and Marc Newson. The sculpted bar stools are amazing, but I can't remember the designer (please leave a comment if you know).
