TRIED & TESTED: TEACHING HOTEL MAASTRICHT

November 9, 2010

Most striking feature:

The students of the Hoge Hotelschool are running this hotel. That’s why it’s called a Teaching Hotel. And that’s why the location of the hotel is next to the School of Hotel Management. It’s located in a beautiful white castle and the 26 rooms are designed by several Dutch artists like Piet Hein Eek, Richard Hutten and Studio Job. I’ve only seen a couple of rooms but I really like the suite of Gerben van der Molen of Stars design. It’s like you’re in a forest with a green, autumn print on the walls and the floor. A hammock in one corner and a swing in another. The restaurant has one of the coolest interiors ever (designed by Leon de Lange, student of the Design Academy in Eindhoven).

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.
