Future Hotel Showcase - Hotel Room Prototype

 Back to Projects list
InHouse2, Duisburg, Germany
Fraunhofer Institute

LAVA recently joined the research project ‘Future Hotel' led by the Fraunhofer Institute. In this project, the academic partners from Fraunhofer -together with industrial partners- research the next generation of hotel spaces. The showcase of the Future Hotel study already integrates the first ideas developed. Looking for a calm yet stimulating space, we designed a room where all infrastructure and services are integrated into a continuous wall system. A combination of fluid and edgy forms with hard and soft materials provides a contemporary atmosphere. State-of-the-art product developments and innovations of many leading industry partners unite to create a unique spatial experience. Acting as a flexible interface between man and the surrounding space, cutting edge technologies and services provide a new quality of individual control for guests. The showcase prototype is manufactured using CNC techniques as well as craft and will function as a testing ground for further research and innovation. The project forms part of the Fraunhofer Inhaus Project in Duisburg and will has opened in November 2008.

Area: 36,7 sqm
