Marriott’s Autograph brand’s newest hotel EMC2 grabbed their inspiration from Einstein’s theory of relativity. The 195-room hotel was designed by KOO Architects in Chicago’s Magnificent Mile quarter. The interior designed by Rockwell is meant to be a collaboration of art and science with graphics and art lining the walls and accents of metal lanterns and piping giving the space a mad scientist’s lab feel. There are even bookcases filled with art and science volumes as well as a copper bar top in the dining room where guests can enjoy a unique menu by Chef Brandon Brumback. Another nod to invention and discovery lies in the bedrooms which feature a teardrop-shaped phonograph made of copper that is powered by smartphones. The rooms themselves are also modern and plush and come with functional workstations and even robotic room attendants named Cleo & Leo which help guests settle in. The hotel’s use of modern technology and references to some of the world’s most popular inventions is what makes it the perfect celebration of both creativity and science and an invigorating experience for anyone who stays there.
