POP UP HOTEL: LLOVE TOKYO

October 21, 2010

UNFORTUNATELY THIS PROJECT ENDED IN NOVEMBER 2010

LLove in Tokyo is a hotel space exhibition. Uh, what? Well the best Dutch and Japanese designers create a hotel room (where you can actually sleep from October 22 till November 23) to celebrate their LLove of design (and 400 years of trade). Expect names like Richard Hutten and Joep van Lieshout. Next to the rooms, there’s a gallery, cafe and shop. The idea comes from the owner of the Lloyd Hotel in Amsterdam.

TRIED & TESTED: INSIDE DESIGN AMSTERDAM

September 26, 2010

Some of my favorite things spotted at Inside Design: the interior and design event of ELLE Wonen in the Netherlands. It was located at the Lloyd Hotel – a hotel with rooms in different categories. From dorm rooms with a bathroom next door till a romantic suite at the 6th floor. Extra special was the preview of the H&M Home Store. Already open in Stockholm and Copenhagen, soon followed by London, Helsinki and Amsterdam.

How does it work? First you will see all the products of H&M Home. One product of each curtain, towel or cushion. So you can see the size, feel the material and decide what you like.

Then you walk towards this wall filled with magnets of all the products in the showroom. You choose the ones you like. And…

… paste them on this H&M Home board. With this you walk towards the cashier and she will get the stuff for you.

Other things I liked: this baby bed with huge yellow wheels underneath it by Made by Midas.

USB sticks in the ELLE Wonen shop.

And baby’s first design chair!


TRIED & TESTED: LLOYD HOTEL AMSTERDAM

July 29, 2010

Most striking feature:

The groupie room. There is a room with an extra, extra large bed. Let’s say: six beds next to eachother. Perfect for popstars with their groupies. The Lloyd Hotel has rooms for every budget. From bunk bed rooms to a honeymoon suite. The lobby is also worth visiting: have an applecake with a friend or organise a brainstorm with your colleagues. Next year the hotel is opening a new hotel on the Dam in Amsterdam, which rumours to be the Dutch version of the Michelberger hotel in Berlin. Love it!

From 95 euro to 450 euro. Check out: www.lloydhotel.com
