The Sleep Event 2015 (posted 27th November 2015)
This week Sleep was held at the Business Design Centre in Islington and a few of us went to see what it was all about. With a good selection of speakers, we were interested to hear about what was happening in the hotel industry around the world. There were a few speakers who were very insightful and really added value to our trip. There was also a great selection of products on show - not just the usual!
And then there were the Sleep Sets which are the concept guest rooms featuring at the event. This year the theme was 'Wonder Tale', which was interpreted in five very different ways by the five designs who participated.
Areen Hospitality's bedroom, transporting guests to another realm.
Anita Rosato's bathroom - her design asked guests to question their boundaries and norms.
Shaun Clarkson created a fantasy world where their imaginations ran wild.
The Studio at Harrods set their bedroom scene in the woods and forests and played with the idea of inversion and theatrics.

It was a really interesting show, we'll be back next year.
Have a great weekend,
