Vogas' New Accesories Collection is All About Mediterranean Cork

CHIC AND BASIC RAMBLAS HOTEL IN BARCELONA, SPAIN

We're so smitten with the '60s vibe of the Chic and Basic Ramblas Hotel in Barcelona, Spain. The hotel's interior is the work of Lagranja Design. "To give the hotel’s guests the taste of it, we transformed each corridor into a little exhibition on a particular issue of that decade: Culture and Society, Design Icons, Tourism, Mass Consumption, Folklore, Intellectual Jet set… using room’s doors as exhibiting panels." We're particularly like the Seat 600 ("seiscientos"), the first mass produced Spanish car, parked inside the hotel and their reception desk of vintage suitcases.  (found via Yatzer / images via Lagranja Design)
