UK integrator Pixel Projects has worked with world-renowned interior designer Kelly Hoppen MBE on a collection of hotel interiors to be shown at this year's Sleep Hotel on 20-21 November in London. Part of the Sleep 2013 hotel design event, Sleep Hotel is billed as ‘the catwalk of hotel design’, and Hoppen’s design will be judged against those of four other designers.
Pixel Projects’ technology is carefully integrated within the design scheme. This years’ brief suggests the incorporation of the latest technologies, hence Pixel Projects is presenting the judges with a hotel suite aimed at the future generation of travellers. Crestron is at the heart of the technology scheme, not only providing the overall control, but also LED light fitments and lighting control. Pixel Projects has also included brands such as Samsung (TVs), Teleadapt (device connectivity), Intelity and Axxess (hospitality technology) and Silent Gliss (blind and curtain systems) to create a practical yet subtle and sympathetic scheme.
Sue Harbottle-Sear, business development manager hospitality for Pixel Projects, commented: "It has been a privilege and absolute pleasure to work with all participants on this exciting design. Incorporating technology into guest rooms is no longer an aspiration, but a necessity to cater for the guest of today AND tomorrow. This scheme is perfect to demonstrate that technology need not be the ‘enemy’ of interior design, quite the opposite – it supports it.”
Kelly Hoppen – also known to TV viewers as one of the ‘dragons’ on the BBC programme Dragon’s Den – said: “My aim with this hotel design was to instill a feeling of sanctuary, balance and understated luxury while meeting the brief. We thought of every little detail and because all the elements in each collection are based on my core design principles and ethos, it all fits together perfectly.”
