ART & DESIGN
Galleria Vik Milano, with its large selection of contemporary art and design operates as both a luxury hotel and a private museum, creating one of the most original and exclusive hotels in the world. The strong architectural features of the hotel’s uniquely designed suites showcase remarkable art and décor and reflects Milan’s rich artistic heritage. Carrie & Alex Vik, in collaboration with celebrated architect Marcelo Daglio, have reimagined the interiors of Galleria Vik Milano to transition it into a new era and introduce the destination as a world-renowned experience for which Vik Retreats are known. Each space is reinforced with art from an immensely diverse group of Italian, Uruguayan and other international artists, many of whom spent a considerable amount of time creating site-specific murals and installations. The art combined with curated contemporary and antique furniture, individually and uniquely designed rooms and spaces results in very personal experiences for our guests. From the very first step from Milan’s Via Silvio Pellico into the reception, guests are welcomed by Auguste Rodin’s famed bronze sculpture, The Thinker, in monumental scale, as well an immersive dry fresco of gods, Titans and Amazonians holding up the world spanning the ceiling and walls by Italian artist, Alex Folla and Russian born artist, Elena Trailini. The vast collective exhibition then spreads throughout the hotel’s 5 floors with site-specific projects designed for the various environments. Most artwork inside the hotel is available for purchase.
