A unique collection of art from Papua New Guinea in Spain

The Hotel Urban 5*GL is an exquisite combination of the most avant-garde architecture and design with exotic and original pieces of ethnological and tribal art from Papua New Guinea collected by Jordi Clos. A unique set of features for a highly singular style.

In addition, in the different areas throughout the hotel and its rooms, there is a collection of Chinese, Indian and African pieces which have an incalculable artistic and historical value, including Chinese portraits from the 18th and 19th centuries, and 19th century Indian figurines.

Pieces from Papua New Guinea

The space of the Museum Room is exclusively dedicated to artworks from Papua New Guinea. This includes a display of jewellery and clothing, with necklaces, diadems and ritual objects such as knives or yam masks.

An exciting journey of discovery, exploring the works of ethnic groups that have preserved many of their ancient traditions to this day.

Some of the most impressive elements of this collection were originally found in the Tambaran, or Houses of the Spirits, and are on display in the reception space and interior atrium, including ceremonial chairs, totem poles and ancestral figures.

The artwork in the collection can be found in every nook and cranny of the hotel, as well as inside the rooms.
