Losing your marbles

For the interior refurbishment of the Milan Hilton, interior specialist the Hickson Design Partnership turned to Piero Portoluppi’s luxurious Villa Necchi Campiglio nearby for inspiration. The building is a gorgeous paean to the rich early modernism characterising the inter-war period. The firm looked to pick up on the sense of indulgence with its use of Neolith’s Calacatta Gold marble-like surface, offering a deluxe look and feel that’s cheaper, more sustainable and easier to maintain. Anyway, you should never meet your heroes.
