For this year’s NYCxDESIGN, Sight Unseen and HotelTonight have partnered up to create a conceptual hotel suite that celebrates design, color, and art. Designed by Brooklyn-based designer and artist duo Hannah Bigeleisen and Steven Bukowski, the suite is meant to be more than just a place to sleep for guests. There are spaces designated for reading, resting, sleeping, and entertaining.
Once inside, you’ll notice that the room immediately distinguishes itself from other hotel rooms with its black and white striped walls, colorful furniture, contemporary decor, and bespoke, limited-edition art by Bigeleisen herself. She notes:
Too often, hotel rooms are sterile, with nondescript furniture that’s meant to be invisible rather than noticed. This space is the opposite, with wall treatments that augment the perception of the room and reinforce the linear elements of the furniture.
The best part is, items from the suite are available for purchase with HotelTonight’s signature discount, including the mini-bar, daybed, lounge chair and vanity mirror.
The conceptual suite will be on display May 17th – 20th, 2018 at Sight Unseen OFFSITE which is free and open to the public at 201 Mulberry Street. Afterwards, the suite will be bookable through the HotelTonight app.
