This amazing interior design idea comes from Nema Workshop and belongs to D’Espresso Cafe located on Madison Avenue, in New York City. The idea was to create a strong identity for the bar that would immediately stand out and be easily recognized.

“Inspired by the nearby Bryant Park Library, Nema Workshop designed a store that is straightforward in a simple twisted way – take a library and turn it sideways. The book lined shelves become the floor and ceilings and wood floor ends up on the walls meanwhile the pendants protrude sideways from the wall. To achieve the books shelves on the floor, the space is lined with sepia-toned full size photograph of books printed on custom tiles.”

The Tree Hotel, located at Harrads Sweden, is a place inspired by the documentary film “Trädälskaren” (Treelover) by Jonas Selberg Augustsen and by the idea of creating a comfortable, well designed hotel which allows visitors to live in harmony with nature amongst the trees .

Rooms available are the “Mirrorcube” by Tham & VidegÃ¥rd Architects, “The Cabin” by Cyrén & Cyrén, “The Nest” by Inredningsgruppen, “UFO” by Inredningsgruppen / Bertil Harström, “A room with a view” by Marge Architects and “Blue Cone” by Sandell Sandberg.

The Yas Hotel located in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, consists of 252 deluxe and 247 executive bedrooms and combines spectacular architectural design with innovative technology in an unparalleled position overlooking the Yas Marina, Formula 1 Grand Prix circuit. The design consists of an undulating cloak of transparent panels which stretch between two elliptical towers of the hotel. The aerodynamic building form evokes marine imagery of the Arabian Gulf and the curvilinear appearance of the Formula 1 cars and the race track. Working in collaboration with Asymptote of New York, Jestico + Whiles was appointed as interior designers and has created a calming and sophisticated interior to complement the frenetic speed of the Grand Prix.

The Grand Prix circuit divides the hotel into two wings. The first phase, Land Side Wing includes a range of guest suites and a set of specialist restaurants. The second phase, Water Side Wing is situated in the Marina itself and includes the Presidential and Vice-Presidential Suites, a restaurant, ballroom and café. You will find a lot of the facilities here that you will come across in hotels Alton Towers in the UK or in a high tech hotel in Japan. It has everything you would expect and more from a modern hotel. Contemporary and well considered natural materials have been used throughout the interior of the hotel, which enhances the lively and comforting environment. Pure white quartz, Carrara marble tiles and bronze mirrors have been selected in bedrooms and bathrooms and fine oak joinery is shaped in reference to the form of wind filled sails of local boats.

Designed by Italian architect Simone Micheli, The i-SUITE Hotel interior architectural plan lies its foundations in the concept of modern luxury developed after a thorough and targeted thinking. During the “XXX Congreso Colombiano de Arquitectura” ( 30th Colombian Architecture Convention) which took place in Barranquilla (Colombia) in 2007 Micheli asserted: ” …the new luxury does not mean immobility or habit, but rather freedom and movement. It is a light and a stirring thought, at any moment we are able to choose where and how to live and to reinvent the environment we live in.”

“As for architecture the new luxury is related to the idea of regaining the beauties and the truth of our daily life together with our inner feelings. It is more connected with vacuums than with plenums, more with mind than with body. It does not mean opulence but rather transparency. I am talking about possible places where yours and our histories are echoing in the shape of visual, olfactory, tactile and auditory essence. I am telling you a story which has its roots in the past and in the tastes of exotic places but at the same time it is near and next future oriented.”
