Sneak peek – Hilton Molino Stucky Venice to launch new designer suites • Hotel Designs


Hilton Molino Stucky Venice has released its first-look renderings of the new suites. The interior design was created by Biagio Forino, whom the hotel is collaborating with again after he designed the iconic Molino Presidential Suite in 2019, which is the highest and largest suite in all of Venice.

A native of Salerno, Biagio Forino opened his studio in Milan in 1987 and has dedicated himself to interior design ever since. An incredibly versatile designer, his numerous projects include the finest private houses to some of the world’s most prestigious hotels, creating schemes ranging from contemporary modern to classic. Forino delivers truly unique designs, working hand in hand with the client at each stage, from creating inspiring mood boards and the clever division of spaces, to the sourcing of materials and the creation of bespoke furnishings.

“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,” discussed Fiorino, sharing his inspiration and vision for the design. “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.”

As illustrated by the renderings, the colour palates are calming and earthy, with creams and teals taking centre stage, to provide the ultimate sophisticated and tranquil retreat in Venice. The teal hues reflect the colours of Venice’s lagoon, which can also be seen in the breathtaking views of Venice and the Giudecca Canal from some of the new suites.

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 a dose of luxury. Meanwhile, bespoke ‘Toile de Venice’ Venetian fabric made by Rubelli is used for wall screens. The dreamlike teal-coloured wallpaper for the new connecting rooms has been made by Inkiostro bianco.

Rubelli fabrics are also seen across the other upholstered furniture including the sofas, armchairs, curtains and cushions, along with chairs, benches, headboards and bed structure upholstered in eco-leather fabric by Casamance. The furniture itself has been expertly crafted by bespoke furniture makers Status Contract and includes carbon fibre bedside tables, desks and sideboards.

References to the city of canals appear throughout; 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.
