Tempting Experience: stay in an work of art and pay tribute to Brazilian culture
Emmanuelle Meeus de Clermont Tonnerre was fascinated by Brazil and designed the Insolito Boutique Hotel as an art exhibit. A true curator, she assembled a unique collection that pays tribute to the Brazilian culture.
The artworks are not only displayed in the rooms but also and in the common areas such as the living room with a Pigmento Ovo table and a beautiful rustic wooden sofa signed by Elma Chavez.
The recycled rubber mats are designed by Cecilia Machado and, in the context of a social responsibility, were crafted by prisoners of Muzambinho and of Nova Rezende. We'd also mention the photos of the anthropologist Claudia Andujar, the stickers of André Diniz and of the young Brazilian designer Juliana Llussa.
