Eyebrows were raised when London- based designer Ron Arad, known for his sinuous metal furniture, announced plans for a hotel in the Italian seaside resort of Rimini, an hour east of Bologna on the Adriatic coast. The town is no design destination, and many considered it a strange spot for some of Arad's latest work. But his 43-room property, with intergalactic shapes in metal, wood, and Corian, represents the thrill of the future. Standards are 270 square feet and sparsely furnished; in each, a circular window in the wall behind the bed looks into the bathroom (Venetian blinds allow for privacy). Most successful is the lobby bar, where Arad’s steel Kompass tables are flanked by his cream Ripple chairs. It’s all a seductive celebration of form over function, and it dazzles.
