Palma de Mallorca, Spain, 2021
Nobis, a renown Swedish hospitality group with first class hotels and restaurants, will open its eighth outpost in the heart of Palma de Mallorca in June 2021. Concepció by Nobis brings together the Scandinavian cool of Swedish architect Gert Wingårdh with the warm Mediterranean feel of local artisanship. The result is a sublime, contemporary take on Mallorcan design that is at one with its surroundings.
Located on Carrer de la Concepció, where the charming Old Town blends into popular Santa Catalina, the hotel is housed in a unique 16th-century building that was once a hospital, a marketplace for olive oil, and a soap factory. While keeping the essence of the building’s characteristics such as cross vaults, beamed ceilings, and bay windows, the interiors have been transformed with a mix of contemporary, vintage, and bespoke pieces. The rooms are characterized by authenticity, sustainability, and quality. Local materials and crafts abound in the oak carpentry and woven textiles, contrasted by warm brass and cool steel. The hotel rooms feature Nera stools designed by Monica Förster—as innovative sculptural nightstands—and Piano tables by Ludovica+Roberto Palomba.
