Brazilian designers Fernando and Humberto Campana are renowned for  their reuse and re-appropriation to make furniture and interiors. Since launching in 1983 they have built an international reputation with works founded on the principles of reinvention and transformation. Located in the heart of Athens, New Hotel showcases the design duo’s eccentric style with sculptural wall coverings and furniture made from found objects, fabric offcuts and recycled pieces from the hotel’s former life as the Olympic Palace Hotel which was designed in 1958 by Iasonas Rizos.
