Europe’s top design and innovation function for the hospitality sector, Sleep & Eat, has revealed the architecture and design groups which will be responsible for making the Sleep & Eat Sets in 2019. The list includes new and well-known firms established in London, Manchester, Paris, and Singapore. Miaja Design Group, twenty2degrees, Hat Design, and Barreca Tibblin will be creating a concept guestroom, while NAME architecture and Space Invader will develop a concept restaurant and bar.
According to the “Social FlexAbility” theme for 2019, the groups will have to produce flexible and intriguing areas where guests engage in the social interaction of their choosing.
What do the design experts have to say?
“We are thrilled to be a part of the creative team of designers involved with this year’s Sleep & Eat sets,” says Joseph Stella from twenty2degrees. “We look forward to delivering a design that not only encapsulates our studio, but also responds to the challenge of this year’s brief. Our aim is to design a space that feels fresh, excites those who visit and inspires others in the way that we have been when visiting The Sets in previous years.”
The Founder of Miaja Design Group, Isabelle Miaja, says, “I am very excited to participate in Sleep & Eat 2019. Innovation and inspiration have always been a driving force for me in creating my designs, and this event embodies these precepts.”
Anne-Marie Sabatier of Hat Design says, “With the prodigious opportunity offered at Sleep & Eat, we will be sharing our vision of relaxed aesthetics and transformable social collaboration. Sleep & Eat is an opening for HAT to a global audience; prestigious representation where functional business design matters.”
Co-Founder and Creative Director of Barreca Tibblin, Maria Tibblin, says, “‘Tradition of the future’ is my inspiration when designing a space. It honors our heritage and welcomes the next generation. A timeless design combined with the creative sense of tomorrow. When I visited the Sleep & Eat event last year, I was so inspired and eager to be part of the show to share my ideas with a wider audience.”
Nathalie Rozencwajg of NAME architecture commented, “We are looking forward to contributing to a leading event in the hospitality sector and sharing our vision for the future of the industry. Sleep & Eat is a driving force that bridges today’s solutions with visions for tomorrow, and designing a Set is a unique opportunity to contribute to the debate and explore the power of design to personalize a social experience through a spatial one.”
“At Space Invader, we are always looking for new ideas that inspire us as interior designers,” says Katie Edgar, Space Invader designer. “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.”
