Atlas unplugged
Berlin, February 06, 2018 – It’s a big, bold world out there. And it’s this wild wonder the new Design Hotels Book 2018 sets out to explore. With an early March release, this around-the-globe collection of new and legendary hotels, of standout design statements, of sustainable, attainable, and eye-popping showstoppers will showcase in 500-plus pages a fresh, contemporary look and feel. Of course, there is also the hotly anticipated annual Influencers List 2018, Design Hotels™’ picks of creative geniuses challenging the very definition of hospitality design.

The 2018 edition of The Design Hotels™ Book will be released on March 8, 2018, and is priced at 59.90 EUR. The book is available to pre-order:

Here, amid a world of stunning locales, thought-provoking design, groundbreaking architecture, and beautiful photography, an in-depth spotlight shines on five multidisciplinary teams and their respective projects. Making up the Influencer List, meet these formidable designers and architects and get behind-the-scenes access into their creative processes. To name a few, there’s Festen, who, leading with pure and simple sophistication breathed life into Paris' Le Pigalle hotel and Saint-Raphaël's Hôtel Les Roches Rouges. And then there’s Asylum who rose to the challenge of reinventing an 1895 godown (warehouse) in Singapore, and in doing so redefined the term “industrial” by adding warmth, charm, and softness. They did this by designing elements in the spaces themselves, such as the lighting and the copper wall units in the rooms. Through these profiles, and others, get deeper insights into key design-drivers within the hospitality and design landscape.

Order by February 28 and Design Hotels™ gifts the all-natural “Something for Dreaming” sleep aid that is taken from the Travel Kit co-curated with Biocol Labs—a boutique pharmaceutical pushing boundaries in the wellness industry—as well as a complimentary copy of Directions, the magazine for truly discerning travelers. This year, the Transformation Issue looks at various transformative movements underway in the worlds of art, design, food, wellness, and fashion and how they are changing the way we travel.
