Born in Madeira Island, Nini Andrade Da Silva, a Portuguese Top Interior Designer, was responsible to build the Vine Hotel’s modern interior design. During all the process, the interior designer has interpreted Madeira’s tradition of fortified wines in the background of the ultra-modern building by contemporary architects Ricardo Bofill and João Francisco Caires.
As one of the most important figures in the Portuguese design-world, Nini Andrade Da Silva was in this year’s panel of speakers of the Luxury Design & Craftsmanship Summit 2019. This interior design project is a reflexion of richness, history, and refinement of a full-bodied wine.
The lobby and the reception were designed by Nini Andrade Da Silva, distinct elements with different dimensions and oval shape and without edges, Garouta do Calhau Furniture.
Featuring modern furniture pieces with a unique design and inspired by natural elements, inside this luxury hotel, Nini Andrade Da Silva creates deep purple shades in the lobby, contemporary bedrooms with different colors according to each season of the year and also, hues and materials combined to create and originate a sweet and melodious environment.
Madeira is definitely one of the main inspirations for Nini Andrade Da Silva’ s creative work and personal design. According to the top interior designer: “Madeira has always given me much peace, much freedom, not to mention the sea, the light. And I think a person who’s in this environment has to create.”
Nini Andrade Da Silva has worked in different countries and with different cultures: that’s why she has a particular and a unique sensibility to distinct cultures and also transports this to any interior design project she creates, like the Vine Hotel. This luxury hotel is situated on Madeira Island, is a modern building with a lot of attention to contemporary design, and, as its proper name suggests, themed around the famous production of wine.
Designed by Nini Andrade Da Silva, the ambiances inside the modern bedrooms evoke the secrecy and mystery of the wine cellars. Each floor is inspired in a season representing the different stages of the grape growth, from the fresh greens of Spring.
Pioneering, eclectic and unusual are some of the ways to describe this luxury hotel’s interior design by Nini Andrade Da Silva, as she conceived this project as a combination of both contemporary and ordinary elements, with a desire to include comfort and well-being, as well as the cultural roots and traditions of the island.
About Nini Andrade Da Silva’s unique design style: it’s definitely “minimalistic with a little bit of soul to it”. This contemporary hotel is the perfect of that.
