Sleep + Eat 2019: Championing ‘Social FlexAbility’
Sleep + Eat 2019Championing ‘Social FlexAbility’
We’ve written a lot recently about merging spaces. Whether it be co-working set ups in hotel lobbies, sleep pods in offices or residential furniture that can comfortably support sustained laptop use, the places in which we eat, sleep, work and relax are forever changed.
And this had not gone unnoticed by the organisers of Sleep + Eat – Europe’s leading design and innovation event for the hospitality sector, held at London’s Olympia between 19th-20th November. The theme of this year’s show, “Social FlexAbility”, perfectly aligned with the findings in our Personal Sanctuary report. Very timely indeed.
2019’s roster of exhibitors explored how hotels, restaurants and bars can be in the vanguard of social connection, contributing to human interaction in our age of digital obsession.
Sleep + Eat sets
Always a hotly anticipated highlight of the event, the Sleep + Eat sets were this year created in direct response to the overarching theme of “Social FlexAbility”. Six creative studios undertook the challenge to come up with four guest room sets and two restaurant and bar sets that provided flexible spaces for users to “activate the social experience of their choice”.
The design agencies involved included Twenty2degrees, Miaja Design, HAT Design, Maria Tibblin, Space Invader and NAME Architecture.
