A one of a kind room designed by one of Italy's most admired architects, Michele De Lucchi. Based on the "itabuki" (wood shingle) traditional technique, the room is surrounded by mystical light formed by some 3,000 wood shingles. The MICHELE DE LUCCHI ROOM is where you will discover the master's true passion and admiration for wood. Relax and enjoy this out of this world experience.

The 2725 Elements (Room)

Shingles are small wooden boards commonly used in the building of the roofs of Japanese traditional houses. The technique is based on surprisingly simple ideas. Although the origin of this technique remains unknown, shingles have been used and produced throughout the ages in different parts of the world.

For us Architects, it is particularly rewarding to design with wooden shingles because they produce an effect of aesthetic and formal significance. The use of shingles allows us to design curved, spherical and corrugated shapes. They make rigid surfaces seem soft. By adding gaps between shingles, the architect can play with space and distances, creating transparencies that are similar to textiles and curtains see-through effects.

We applied this idea to the SHIROIYA HOTEL, where we applied them only on edges and corners, coating a small room with these shingles-made curtains that, in their entirety, look light and soft.
We wanted to bridge the gaps between sculpture and interior design to have a room that is also an art installation. To do so, we employed 2725 wooden shingles. Hotel rooms are usually identified by numbers, and in this case, our Room has a special number: we called it the 2725 Elements Room.

The material effect of surfaces is combined with the choice of colour and shades, a succession of dark tones in harmony with each other, conducive to a sense of calm tranquility, rest, and also- good sleep.
