Arthur Casas - Emiliano

Discipline: Interior Architecture

Designed by Arthur Casas, the interiors of Emiliano Rio nod to Brazilian modernism, inspired by the artwork by landscape architect and artist Roberto Burle Marx on display in the hotel lobby. The fabric and textures used for the furniture in the reception area and in the rooms draw on the hues of green in the piece, while the decor includes pieces by major names in Brazilian design of the ‘50s, such as Rio native Sergio Rodrigues, as well as by contemporary designers, such as Paola Lenti. The surfaces are also marked by the lighter tones of 100% Brazilian materials, including wood, white Paraná marble, granite, and stone.
