HOTELS: Mama Shelter by Philippe Starck

There’s something that you need to know… I love Philippe Starck. I also love travelling. So when you put these two together, it just… well… you know what I mean.

So imagine my joy when I found out that I can now actually afford to check into a Philippe Starck-designed hotel, albeit just for a few days. Ladies and gents, I give you MAMA SHELTER.

The hotel offers all the modern-day amenities a traveller can hope for– free wi-fi, hip common areas, services like babysitting, transportation and laundry, and 24-inch i-macs in all rooms.

To top it all off, a stay in Mama Shelter would mean you’ll get to be surrounded by Philippe Starck pieces. This might not appeal to some, but to a Starck fan like me, this is simply heavenly!

I can’t wait to check in. Now, the only problem is, when do I go back to Paris?:)

    Hi. Thanks for sharing your stay in Mama Shelter. A big fan of Starck’s works too. I was wondering if you could tell me how I could DIY the mask wall lamp he created exclusively for this hotel? Like, how did he avoid the mask from melting? Did he put something? 🙂

    I was also wondering how much it costs in dollar for an overnight stay there?

    Thanks.

      Hi V. I’m glad you like Starck too. Unfortunately, I have no idea how you can DIY the mask lamp. I’m sure the material is heat proof, though. It maybe made from fiberglass. Their rates start from 79 Euros. You can check out their website at http://www.mamashelter.com. Good luck!
