The Italian brand's marble for the iconic French luxury hotel at 45 Boulevard de la Croisette

The Mondrian brand is rooted in culture, design and art. And as in the art of the Dutch master to whom it owes its name, harmony is achieved in every room of the Mondrian Hotel Cannes through the balanced relationships between lines, colours and surfaces. A harmony that can be breathed in the spacious and elegantly furnished interiors, embellished by Margraf marble in the common areas, in the bathrooms on the ground floor and in some exclusive suites.

The structure in Cannes is the first luxury hotel in France of one of the chains most loved by the international jet set, an icon of style, a crossroads of trends and fashions, at the centre of the cultural scenes, in the most important cities in the world.

A long restyling job

Mondrian Cannes opens on the site of the city's oldest building, the former Grand Hotel, after a lengthy restyling project by Triptyque, which chose Margraf marble for this hotel with 75 rooms and suites overlooking the sea and the city, swimming pools, meeting rooms, restaurants and private beach. A structure with a 4,000 square metre garden of palm trees and hundred-year-old trees overlooking the Croisette, with direct access to the Rue d'Antibes shopping street and just a few steps from the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès.

Margraf marbles are protagonists

The lobby has been designed as a walk in the green towards the blue sea. Protagonists are natural materials in light and enveloping tones, including the white Namibia Margraf marble of the floor and staircase. Rooms and suites are characterised by their generous size of at least 32 square metres (rare in France), with large openings overlooking private sun terraces.

Architectural geometries

The elegance of the interiors derives from the interplay between the architectural geometries of the furnishings and the undulating lines of the large carpet leading down to the sea. In the bathrooms of the most prestigious suites, the designers have used Margraf open-spot Bianco Brasile marble cladding, combined with shower trays and vanity-tops in Verde Alpi; in the other rooms the bathrooms are embellished with 1 cm thick modular tiles in Bianco Gioia, Nero Marquinia and Verde Alpi marble.
