L’hôtel de type

I arrived home today after travelling the length of France to northern Spain. I didn’t pass through Paris on this trip but after discovering Mama Shelter on my return, I wish I had.

Designed by Philippe Starck, and located in Paris’s 20th arrondissement in the east, the hotel’s interior is covered in lettering and type. Graffitied blackboard ceilings where the lettering runs onto the walls, type bedecked carpets and in the bedrooms. I need to go back — soon!
