Armani’s New Dubai Hotel Looks Like The Matrix Set

Giorgio Armani has just opened his first hotel in Dubai, and while the super-sleek design definitely has the designer’s mark, the aesthetics are so minimalist that the place might as well be the backdrop for a “Matrix” movie. The muted color palette of grays, browns, and blacks, in combo with modern furniture, gives off that sterile/drab/futuristic thing. Seriously, that hallway with the creepy light at the end? It makes us think there aren’t bedrooms behind those doors, but rather alien pods hooked up to some cyber-killing machine.

This location is apparently the first of several other planned sites in cities all over the world—New York, London, Tokyo, and Shanghai to name a few. (The Armani takeover has begun!) Check out a few more pics after the jump. []
