Relais San Lorenzo, a charming jewel designed by Adolfo Natalini transformed into a 5-star hotel in Bergamo Alta, the historical high-part of the city. The complete renovation of this historical location created a perfect blend between history and contemporary style. The building is set in one of the most fascinating parts of Bergamo, overlooking the valley and the hotel itself incorporates the archeological site of the antique Roman and Medieval ruins of the city.
Poltrona Frau supplied some iconic pieces for all the public spaces, rooms and suites, furnished with taste and simplicity. These were conceived in different tones of brown and cream, creating a warm and refined atmosphere. The pieces coming from Poltrona Frau collection have been chosen referring to design history and they contribute to the creation of the magic union between art and culture, ancient times and future which characterizes the uniqueness of the hotel.
Like the Intervista armchairs, by Lella and Massimo Vignelli, that can be found in the hotel’s entrance hall, as in the suites and in the restaurant; or the Dezza armchair by Gio Ponti, and Kennedee modular sofa by Jean-Marie Massaud which also welcome the guests, giving an immediate connotation to the hotel’s style.
Other iconic pieces, like the Ginger armchair by Roberto Lazzeroni, or Regolo and Geometrie coffee tables, or the Fitzegrald and Ring chairs, and Quadra sofa complete Poltrona Frau’s contribution to the creation of an environment where time is suspended between the historic reminiscence of the city of Bergamo and the history of Italian design.
