The Converse One Star Hotel was a 3 day pop up event held in London in February 2018. The classical hotel experience was reimagined by street style anti-heroes and was designed by Hotel Creative, the event was managed by XYZ.
Shape created many of the elements within the hotel including the much admired rotating pink bed in the Cotton Candy room - a definite favourite for anyone wanting to grab the perfect insta moment!
We technically interpreted the design for the revolving bed to ensure it was fully functioning even when several people were lying in it. It was full size and bean bag soft. In the adjoining room, the concrete breeze block bed was topped with hand cast concrete pillows and we added screed concrete bedside cabinets. Additionally we custom made foam mah jong playing pieces which were hand stencilled, along with many intricate neon centrepieces and signs.
We were also responsible for the black suitcase tower, and the security video screens in the main reception area.
