My entry to Night Fever 2 with Scala Vinoteca in Kolonaki, Athens.
Architectural design by Kokkinou + Kourkoulas Architects
175 extraordinary hospitality projects by designers around the world.
Strong branding concepts and good stories are as important today as the pure aesthetics and functional qualities of interiors designed to welcome the general public. Creating a hospitality venue encompasses a good understanding of the client’s identity, goals and needs, as well as the consumer’s wishes. Balancing these aspects and mixing in creativity and innovation result in a recipe for sure success.
Whether the interior designer used vintage furniture, wall graphics, advanced modelling techniques or sustainability as an anchor point for the hospitality concept in question, all 175 spaces selected for this book have a story to tell. They range from subtle to stunning and include fairy-tale interiors – like Marcel Wanders’ Mondrian Hotel, Neri & Hu’s White Rabbit restaurant and Make Creative’s Aviary bar – to spaces with a living-room ambience, such as the Home Delicate Restaurant by Logica:architettura and High tension Low-Bolt by Line-Inc.
Night Fever 2 offers readers a three-in-one experience of entertainment pleasure in a trio of volumes featuring restaurants (EAT), bars and clubs (DRINK) and hotels (SLEEP). Together they form an easy-to-navigate boxed set with a total of 608 design-packed pages. Each project is accompanied by an explanatory text, project credits, a floor plan, a company profile of the design firm and a wealth of photos. Address and contact details of architects, designers and venues are included. This easy to navigate, triple-volume reference is an unparalleled resource for contemporary hospitality design worldwide. With its outstanding graphic design it’s not just a valuable source of inspiration but a pleasant addition to any creative’s bookshelf.
