Matali Crasset has created Hi Matic Hotel in collaboration with Patrick Elouarghi and Philippe Chatelet, where visitors check-in, order food and exchange tips on the city with other guests via the hotel’s online system and a plethora of screens throughout the building. The HI matic hotel allows guests to choose and change music in the public areas, collaborate on an ever-evolving city guide and collect meals from an automatic machine in the restaurant. 42 rooms are spread over five floors, envisioned as cabins where the specially designed furniture systems can change function throughout the day as required.
