Hilton Munich Airport - Products curated by JOI-Design
About the project: This year, experts from the Skytrex Institute again awarded five stars to Munich Airport for providing the best service and quality of stay. Since the Hilton hotel is part of our client's portfolio throughout the airport, it, too, is integral to upholding superior standards: in recent years, the property was almost completely renovated and some parts expanded. We supervised the most important areas such as guest room renovations. The airport’s overarching theme, 'mountain hub', is a red thread running throughout the rooms‘ design. Details to be discovered are reminiscent of the mountainscape visible from the windows when the weather is clear as well as accents that symbolise the transport hub’s role connecting Munich with the entire world.
Chiar ‚Flow Chair‘, MDF Italia (Italy)
For us, this timber-base chair embodies the perfect symbiosis between rusticness and functionality, since it swivels to make it easier to get in and out. The cool outer layer of the seat‘s shell contrasts elegantly with its soft seat and back cushions.
Decorative Cow Sculpture, Cow Parade (Germany)
We love art – especailly when it sparks a twinkle in the eyes! These miniature cow sculptures add regional flavour as well as individualised attention to detail: each small but fine accent piece has its own distinct designed created by a different artist to give each room its own character.
Carpet / custom-made, quality Axminster, EGE Carpets (Denmark)
For each hotel room concept we create, we almost always develop our own, custom-made carpet design. What we particularly enjoyed here are the subtle details discovered upon second glance: while the pattern initially looks like modern, abstract lines on a lighter background, the airport connection only becomes apparent over time, once guests realise the 'lines' symbolise the flight paths connecting Munich with the rest of the world.
Armchair with footstool / ,Flow' series, ipDesign (Germany)
When globetrotting travellers stopover here, the armchairs in their bedrooms have to be little all-rounders: seats that invite you to lean back and rejuvenate between two appointments, plus of course they should be comfortable and integrate effortlessly with our design language. This model perfectly fulfilled all the requirements, and we like its hard shell and softer core!
Wall tiles ,Mosaic Focus Royal', Agrob Buchtal (Germany)
In the bathroom, the wall tiles we selected to accent the washbasin area add a certain warmth around the mirror yet at the same time, they also remind us of rocks to support the 'mountain hub' concept. This combination won us over straightaway, plus they add a further touch of elegance in the bathroom.
Washbasin faucet, ,Edition 400 one level faucet', Keuco (Germany)
In addition to the beautiful tiles, we also chose a special faucet: its modern yet soft, rounded shape immediately caught our eye. The velvety soft finish does not look too cold or too warm due to its shade of colour. In addition, the faucet reminded us of traditional water dispensers used for tubs or drinking troughs found in regional meadows where cows graze. And so with this, we’ve come full circle!
Vinyl wallcovering, 'Palena', Vescom (Netherlands)
A hardwearing wallcovering that looks like a soft textile—that's what we wanted for the corridors, and we found it here: taken with its fine herringbone pattern, we played with positive-negative colourways to create design effects in the door niches as well as in the rooms. This resulted in optimal places to display room numbers designed especially for the project!
