Opinion by Richard Baird.
Casa Bonay is a unique hotel destination in the neighbourhood of Eixample Dret, Barcelona, housed within a historic nineteenth century building with a neo-classical façade. Although the setting has a strong historical value, inside and out, the hotel experience makes a connection with the creative talent that populates the city today. This is achieved through collaboration with pioneering chefs, young designers, renowned furniture brands and an independent publisher to create menus, interiors and books.
Casa Boney’s brand identity, created by graphic design studio Mucho, is a visual articulation of the hotel’s free-spirited attitude and the coexistence of disparate personalities and styles. Where the hotel’s interior features classical masonry, period furnishings and darker hues alongside areas of modern restraint, utility and light, Mucho’s brand identity is colourful, eccentric and playful. This reaches across coasters, packaging and a variety of other printed materials.
