Studio Aisslinger designed the 25hours Hotel Bikini Berlin under the working title: Urban Jungle. The reason: half of the 149 rooms overlook the Berlin Zoo and the other half some of Berlin biggest landmarks. Using a warm design scheme with lots of natural colours, materials and custom furniture they have truly created a landmark.
Stairwells are in fashion these days. Agency Jouin Manku upped the ante with this insane structure in the centre of Brasserie Les Harras in Strasbourg. The brasserie is build inside a listed building and it has been made sure you can see this. The entire venue has the original wooden beams on show. Large organic shaped leather panels work as dividers and accent the wood and stone in the building brilliantly.
The Jane in Antwerp is michelin star chef Sergio Hermans and Nick Bril new restaurant. Set in a former military chapel and designed by Piet Boon this new venue for the two top chefs really turned into something special.
The attention to detail is astounding: from custom designed glass in lead, neon skull lighting fixtures, a 150 light bulb chandelier, tattooed bar elements and much more this restaurant really mixes fine dining with a rock ‘n roll aesthetic. Via Yatzer
