Sleep & Eat, Europe’s leading design and innovation event for the hospitality sector, has announced the architecture and design firms which will be creating the Sleep & Eat Sets this year.
The roll call reveals an intriguing roster of new and long-established, multi-cultural practices based in Paris, London, Manchester and Singapore. They are twenty2degrees, Miaja Design Group, Hat Design and Barreca Tibblin, who will each create a concept guestroom, and NAME architecture and SpaceInvader, who will realise a concept restaurant and bar respectively.
With the theme for 2019 of “Social FlexAbility”, the six firms have been challenged to design flexible and engaging spaces in which guests can activate the social experience of their choice. Once again, the Sets – a cult favourite amongst Sleep & Eat visitors – are poised to provide a conceptual playground which, this year, will explore one of the major issues of our technology-enabled age – connection with other human beings.
Katie Edgar, SpaceInvader comments:
"Weare always looking for new ideas that inspire us as interior designers,” says designer Katie Edgar. “The Sleep & Eat event is a must for us as it combines new products, thought leadership, opportunities to speak to key figures in our industry and a chance to soak up the buzzing atmosphere. The opportunity to design a Set was a no brainer and a chance for us to come together as a design studio and create something special.”
