Desert Oasis: Missoni Does Kuwait
Architecture & Interiors
Understatement is not what one expects from the Italian fashion house Missoni, so the color and print extravaganza on display at Hotel Missioni Kuwait, the second in the brand’s chain of international hotels, comes as no surprise. What is a surprise is the drop-dead selection of A-list Mid-Century Modern furniture they’ve chosen to complement their own gaudier furnishings. Buttercup yellow Saarinen Womb Chairs; Hans Wegner Wisbone chairs in natural ash wood; and gleaming white Bertoia bar stools sit serenely alongside dizzying signature Missoni geometrics, and against a breathlessly daring backdrop of interior paint hues. The result? An unequivocal, over-the-top wow!
