2019 Sleep & Eat Sets

2019 Sleep & Eat Set Designers | Sleep & Eat

Meet the Designers

Taking on this year's "Social FlexAbility" theme, six creative studios have been challenged to design flexible and engaging spaces in which guests can activate the social experience of their choice. Four practices will create Guest Roomsets whilst the other two will realise a concept Restaurant and Bar respectively. A roster of new and long-established practices are poised to provide a conceptual playground which will explore one of the major issues of our technology-enabled age – connection with other human beings.

Twenty2degrees Guestroom Teaser 

"No two guests the same. Dance, Sleep, Work, Play.

A flexible space for the social, a haven for your stay.

Distorted riffs softened with plush fabrics, warm timbers set against a vibrant zing, a hotel room that’s more than one thing.

No Sleep till London!"

"We are thrilled to be apart of the creative team of designers involved with this years Sleep & Eat sets. We look forward to delivering a design that not only encapsulates our studio, twenty2degrees, but also challenges this years brief. Our aim is to design a space that feels fresh, excites those who visit and inspires others in the way that we have been when visiting sets in previous years."
Joseph Stella, twenty2degrees

Miaja Design Guestroom Teaser

Sociologists are raising concerned questions about the fact that people spend less time together physically and warning that technology is creating a parallel world distancing us from our humanity.

Miaja Design Group will create a room which will try to challenge the common belief that social interaction is impaired due to the technological devices that openly or insidiously invade our lives.

The studio will endeavour to create an environment that is socially flex-able. A guest room that will encourage people to gather and share experiences that cross the boundaries between Dream and Reality.

"I am very excited to participate in Sleep & Eat 2019. Innovation and inspiration have always been a driving force for me to create my designs and this event embodies these precepts." 
Isabella Miaja, Founder, Miaja Design Group

Maria Tibblin Guestroom Teaser

Maria Tibblin’s guestroom “Tradition of the Future” will be a New Luxury with a strong focus on the ultimate personal and genuine space for each and every guest.

Will it be best girlfriends enjoying a get together, a family who are celebrating a birthday or a guest who is seeking solitude for a few days or an important business meeting? The Guest Room will be adaptable for all these different occasions to lift people’s spirits, fulfil wishes and needs.

With their Scandinavian Heritage, the scheme is light and warm – sophisticated and elegant in its simplicity paying tribute to nature and sensitivity to sustainability and natural materials.

Space Invader Bar Teaser

In order to develop the traditional bar as it stands today SpaceInvader will try to establish what needs changing. With the rise in traction of social media, face to face interaction has become rare.

Conversations are being left to the keypad, with the notion of meeting people in a bar being relevant to only previous generations. But what if a bar’s design could enhance these conversations and bring them to the future, not leaving them in the past? What if the biggest barrier is the bar itself?

Be it a lone guest, small or large group, the space will lend itself to its user through layout and design to achieve the end goal of being a space for the development of conversations.

NAME Architecture Restaurant Teaser

NAME architecture’s Eat Set will feature adaptable functionality and ways to personalise your spatial interactions in order to satisfy a variety of social requests.

A continuous plane – a table - is the new plane for social interaction. It defines space, shapes its use and social stimulation. Clients will be able to choose to activate the social experience of their choice according to where they sit on the table.
