Biagio Forino designs new suites for Hilton Molino Stucky Venice


Hilton Molino Stucky Venice has announced that it will launch 24 new suites in April 2024.  

The suites have been designed by Biagio Forino, who was also behind bringing the hotel’s Molino Presidential Suite to life in 2019. 

First-look renderings see the suites showcasing calming and earthy tones, with creams and teals taking centre stage. Blues represent the colours of Venice’s lagoon, which some of the suites also look onto.

Exposed wooden beams and brushed oak floors add warmth and pay homage to the building’s former life as a flour mill, while decadent details such as black lacquer tables by Chica and crystal chandeliers by Fortuny inject additional luxury.  

Bespoke ‘Toile de Venice’ Venetian fabric by Rubelli meanwhile is used for wall screens. Rubelli fabrics are also seen across other upholstered furniture, including the sofas, armchairs, curtains and cushions, alongside chairs, benches, headboards and bed structure upholstered in eco-leather fabric by Casamance. The furniture itself has been crafted by bespoke furniture makers Status Contract and includes carbon fibre bedside tables, desks and sideboards.

References to the city of canals appear throughout the spaces; paintings by Grecale feature touches of gold resembling those found at St Mark’s Basilica, while table and floor lamps by Italamp make use of Venetian Murano glass. 

“For this project, I was inspired by the unique experiences travellers can live in Venice and the magic of the city along with the original design of this historic building,” says Forino. “Guests will see touches of the original flour mill such as the wooden beams on the ceiling. For example, the bright colours of the Indian wool rugs and soft furnishings evoke thoughts of a handful of confetti, symbolising the many surprises and celebrations to be had in this city. Likewise, the wallpaper in the connecting rooms features a sky with clouds and a teal green dream, similar to what visitors see reflected in our lagoon.”
