Designed by Philippe Starck, the L’Hotel Mama Shelter Marseille is a luxury boutique hotel located in the heart of Marseille, France. The hotel was inspired by the rich culture of the surrounding city, and offers a fun social atmosphere. Offering a different take on traditional French hospitality, L’Hotel Mama Shelter Marseille features urban art throughout the hotel. “There is no project without something very powerful behind it; a human reason, social, love. A vision. Otherwise it cannot legitimately exist. We cannot separate Mama Shelter from its genesis, a simple application of a vision and a story. A human story, an encounter, affinity, a deep friendship, people who love each other. This is the starting point for everything” says visionary designer Philippe Starck. Cool news! More Mama Shelters hotels are be built in Lyon, Istanbul, and Los Angeles. Check out the images of designer Philippe Starck‘s boutique hotel, and as always, let us know what you think!
