In an interview with David Tracz, partner at design firm Studio3877, Inspire Design asks questions about the new normal of hybrid working and how hotels are adapting their design to accommodate.
In line with a trend we’ve seen consistently for the last few years, hotels have been moving towards residential-style designs. This often means more unique, expressive artwork in both public spaces and guestrooms. Combined with a trend toward softer, more comfortable furniture in guestrooms and more playful decor to welcome traveling families, art plays a key role in how hotel designers are focusing on the changing needs and interests of guests.
At the Sheraton Hotel in Reston, VA, Kalisher Studio Artists worked with designers at Studio3877 to create a custom collection of simultaneously sophisticated and spirited abstracts for guestrooms and public spaces. A pair of colorful gallery walls composed of framed prints cascade down the main stairways of the atrium, greeting guests with cheerful aplomb. Guestrooms are punctuated with painterly abstracts that reference local landmarks of Reston, and warm furnishings in the lobby and meeting spaces are complemented with matching custom art.
