Sleep has announced the four design firms that will headline this year’s Sleep Hotel, a unique competition that challenges teams to design and build a hotel guestroom to a specific brief.
Dubbed the ‘catwalk of hotel design’, Sleep Hotel will bring together some of the industry’s best-known designers with several newer names that are making their mark on the sector. Kelly Hoppen, BDP, The Hickson Design Partnership and Purpose Design will each collaborate with fit-out specialists and product suppliers of their choice to build a concept for Sleep Hotel.
This year, the brief is inspired by the widespread interest in, and nostalgia for, the 1960s, and is asking designers to redesign a junior suite in a fictitious hotel originally built during the heyday of Pop Art, translating the radical spirit of this cultural movement into a contemporary experience that is relevant today.
The Sleep Hotel challenge last year was the creation of a five-star bedroom and bathroom within a 23m2 space. This stimulated a collection of highly innovative and stylish room sets, all constructed to an astonishingly high quality despite the constraint of a mere one day to set-up. The winning room was Shaded White designed by Scott Brownrigg and built by Wilmott Dixon Interiors.
