VOCO Hotel The Hague
Art from around the world
When you enter the VOCO hotel The Hague you will step into an old traveller theme that is combined with a modern, green interior concept. For this project we have made a virtual tour around the world to collect beautiful and authentic goods for the suites, rooms and public area of the hotel. As a visitor you will not be bored and find authentic boardgames in the public area of the hotel.
Every culture of the world has it’s own patterns and ways of visually communicating. Often this visual communication is shown through beautiful textiles that are used for clothes or carpets. We collected 20 unique tapestries, all with their own story, representing traditions of several cultures. The one shown in the image on the right is a Berber carpet. Other cultures we used carpets from include Persian, African, Indian (patchwork) and Native American.
To complete the old traveller theme, we added old vintage dried flowers to the rooms. To display these flowers we used a brass frame with leater cord. The vintage flowers we used are: ferns (Pterdium), euca leaves (Nicoly Red, Pavigfolia, Populus), Broom Bloom, Acroclinium (Helipterum roseum) and the iconic Gypsophila.
The decorations of this hotel are a mix of modern design and an authentic vintage traveller theme. The delivered framed artwork is a good reflection of this combination of styles. On the shelves above the desk we have placed modern art with a wooden profiled small frame.
