Design Students Give Their Interpretation Of The Future Of Hotel Furniture
Switzerland – Homes encompass a variety of different rooms, each with a distinct personality depending on the room’s purpose. In hotels, the purpose of rooms is usually to store their items or sleep. A furniture fair in Milan, Salone del Mobile, showcased designs from ECAL students who created futuristic, one-of-a-kind furniture that would break up the monotonous room designs many hotels have.
The students came up with a variety of designs – many of them to provide a higher level of convenience. One of the design students created a bed that has a series of cubbies installed along the base to provide guests the option to store items and keep them within reach. Another student designed a headboard to fold out to become a back rest.
Although some students focused on improving the bed, others invented brand new things for guests to use such as circular pillows that can link with others like it. A guest can link as many of these pillows together as they want to provide comfort in any position they choose. Another student did away with the couch and instead designed stylized pillows in the shapes of a triangle and circle. A guest can change the formation of the pillows to any format they’d find comfortable.
