Is it an Art Museum? Is it a Foundation? … It’s the chic&basic Reding!

Hotel chic&basic Reding is the supreme expression of the Reding artistic movement that emerged in the 1930s in Barcelona. It was born from a group of art students who began to creatively and experimentally explore colour and its ability to evoke emotions, create illusions and play with the viewer's perception. Over time it became a personal experience and subject to the context and culture of each person that crossed the borders of art and was embraced as a transversal form of expression and a way of understanding and living life that continues to this day.
