Rooms 12, 14, & 15 - Paper Suites

Designer: Studio Job
Type of room: Superior

Studio Job wanted to create three rooms in one style. No fuss about ‘fun’ ideas and themes. It would have to be like a sort of chain, but appearances can be deceptive and the opposite is true. Every element in the room has been made by hand in limited editions of 3 or 6: from the paper chandeliers to the door knocker. The wallpaper is a relief with thousands of illustrations.

When you are in the room, you’re pretty much left to your own devices. For example, there’s no TV but there is an old-fashioned gramophone with one record: Wagner’s Götterdämmerung! Just to make you feel at home!

These are suites that are not to be taken too seriously. They try to keep up appearances, but in fact they are pretty Spartan: toilet in the corridor, wardrobe with bits missing and everywhere you go there is that photo of the man staring at you, as if from the sky. Adri, Maik and Lenny....there’s a different face in every room. They are the portraits of the creators of the suites!

Please note that the features of the room mentioned above are explained in Dutch. Nevertheless, as pictures say more than a thousand words, viewers who do not understand Dutch can enjoy these images as well, of course.
