Porto Fira Suites in Santorini
Each and every material that has been used serves as a part of this main idea, while the majority of the furniture, door frames and other decorative elements were custom designed in order to assure a perfectly balanced outcome that would satisfy the Interior Design Laboratorium studio standards. The wardrobes’ perforated black doors, made of Viennese straw and sandblasted oak, are a discrete reference to the confession boxes found in monasteries as well as the byzantine – like stone floors that one encounters in ever suite. Handmade lights manufactured out of black rope were designed based on greek traditional chaplets. Last but not least, carefully selected bohemian fabrics, traditional hand-woven textiles and rugs are part of the bed decoration and sofa cushions.
This unique project was completed with the design and construction of a black pool that creates the illusion of blending into the deep Santorini sea/waters. Its remarkable color sets an extraordinary scenery that is perfectly combined with the absolute view of the dark volcano overlooking the Porto Fira Suites.
