The One Room Hotel

London, England
12.29.2010 | by: Meghan

Designtripper wasn’t around for the better part of the year, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have a looking-back list for 2010. There’s LA art duo Clamdiggin for the newest Viceroy, Richard Hutton’s stripe-y, layered princess-and-the-pea-style mattress at the Llove Hotel, Patricia Urquiola’s bright, high-texture lobby at the Vieques W, and just about everything at Chicago’s six-room Longman & Eagle inn (vintage tape decks, artist-made speakers and wolf skin hanging in the entryway).

But my very favorite project of 2010–a temporary hotel room designed by the super talented Brit couple James Russel and Hannah Plumb (James Plumb) for the London Design Festival–never made it to designtripper while it was actually open. Known for restoring old, worn furnishings and accessories and transforming them into creative, modern pieces, James Plumb designed the One Room Hotel–a stand-alone suite adjacent to a menswear store (with beautiful interiors also by James Plumb). In the daytime, the space was a showroom for their work; by night, a hotel room. Highlights include a once-dilapidated 18th-century Swedish dresser bed they brought back to life and a genius shelving system with vintage suitcases as drawers. Their individual pieces are so smart (old spindled chairs with missing legs made stable with a huge chunk of concrete block), but the aesthetic is beyond extraordinary when they pull it all together for a store, hotel room, or an installation at Salone del Mobile (see below). Thanks for reading. Happy New Year!
