'Boutique Hotels & Hostels: Integrated Brand Systems In Graphics and Space' (phew!) is the second book in the BRANDlife series (the first was on coffee shops) and looks at the burgeoning travel accommodation scene. These new, contemporary retreats are much more than places to sleep and make tea, they are social clubs, gallery spaces and gateways to local culture.
This new title looks at how these innovative lodgings are foregrounding branding and interior design. From furniture choices to wayfinding systems, visual identities to business concepts, there is plenty of inspiration to be found amongst these pages. Included amongst the creative studios featured inside are KesselsKramer, Workstead, Phillippe Starck and Ministry of Design.
