Patricia Urquiola decorates Urban Hotel Six Senses in Rome

Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini, the original architecture of the 15th century, to which valuable superstructures were added over the centuries, with the adjacent San Marcello al Corso church, is experiencing a new life thanks to its reconversion into a luxury accommodation, the Urban Hotel Six Senses Rome.

The design concept is signed by Patricia Urquiola, who has translated the Six Senses brand values (hospitality in the name of wellness, conviviality, and sustainable design in harmony with nature) into a project inspired by the genius loci. A contemporary vision where history and roman classicism can be found in the details, from the material finishes, travertine and cocciopesto for example, to the furnishings and complements.

Among the companies that have contributed to this poetic reading of the building's heritage is Warli, with its products that perfectly combine refined aesthetics, high-performance materials, and high-quality workmanship.

The private terraces of the suites, for example, are a riot of Mediterranean vegetation among whose foliage arise the relaxation areas. On the floor of the terrace of the Lata Suite there are rugs from the Levante and Khadi collections: both in w-proof synthetic fibre, the result of Warli's research into hand weaves and their applications for products of great visual impact and durability.

The palace's terrace, taken up by the Notos restaurant, is the place of greatest scenic impact, where the imposing architecture of the Eternal City can be appreciated in contact with natural elements and harmonious furnishings; here the various areas are framed on the floor by custom rugs in recycled PET, made by Warli, based on an exclusive design by Studio Urquiola, echoing geometric patterns, typical of Roman floorings.

Twilight lanterns in opaline blown glass and satin-finished stainless steel ensure an unforgettable experience of the sunset.

The Earth Lab is enriched with Tricot, a rug characterised by thin vertical and horizontal tencel strings woven on the back of wool ribs. Like all the processes of the brand founded by Paolo Zani, who is also Art Director, Tricot is entirely hand-woven and is deliberately inspired by classic knitting. The palette of colours available ranges from earthy tone combinations to new interpretations of primary colours. An unprecedented black and white version was requested for the Six Senses.
