About the project: We were allowed to build the hotel back in the early 2000s and now we have been able to renovate and add it again. An exciting experience! The new interior reflects the proximity to the Alster – but not superficially, but at second glance: “Dancing” lines, slopes, diagonals are reminiscent of the waves and the sailing boats on the doorstep, or subtle nuances of color harmonize with life on the water.
Here it was important to us that the furniture looked loosely strewn and that the austerity of the hall of the luxury hotel was removed. By combining very different parts, it brings an association with home.
It is always a special concern of ours to integrate contemporary art into the interior concepts, and here we are very happy that our clients went with them and, on our advice, hired Debbie Smyth, who symbolized the worldwide maritime relations of the Port of Hamburg with fine wires and so on at the same time a map of the world appeared behind the reception.
A timeless classic, designed by Warren Platner in 1966 and still very popular! The silhouette could be from our time, the design from hundreds of bent steel rods true craftsmanship. The timeless elegance fit perfectly into our concept!
Art object or functional furniture? We found this gimmick to be perfect for taking some austerity out of the conference rooms, because from a distance the cloakroom looks like a bundle of Mikado sticks!
From a distance you could think they were large chess pieces: These side tables can also be used as stools, and they also look more like an art object in the room. So we stay true to our concept of lightheartedness.
Even the ‘prancing’ pendant lights above the conference table in the boardroom don’t take themselves too seriously and again create a reference to the moving waves on the Alster in front of the windows.
The sofa from our ‘Flow’ series brings support and a certain calmness thanks to its graceful, fluid lines. If you sit here, you feel a little grounded, which is further enhanced by a special combination of materials: warm, natural brown leather wraps the sofa’s interior – with the back tilted at a slight angle. This gentle slope encircles users in an embrace.
