HOTELLO. Somnia et Labora. A Portable Office / Hotel Room Designed for daskonzept Will be Presented at FuoriSalone 2013.

The 20th Century left vast, abandoned, spaces in our cities. Warehouses, factories, military barracks have been built and abandoned in a relatively short period of time. Now, the contemporary city is elaborating new strategies to re-inhabit these empty shells.
In collaboration with the visual Artist Roberto de Luca, I have designed, for the Swiss firm daskonzept, Hotello: a unit of 4 sqm, conceived to extemporarily inhabit the empty lofts of the contemporary city.

Hotello is a portable space, packed into a trunk. Hotello contains all the necessary elements needed to work and rest. It consists of a metal structure that supports a translucent and sound absorbant curtain. Hotello can be combined and aggregated in different configurations.

Hotello will be presented at the Fuori Salone 2013 in Milano at the Fabbrica del Vapore in via Procaccini 4 from 9-14 of April 2013. Opening April 9th from 6-8 pm.

The Fabbrica del Vapore exhibition space will be transformed into an open work environment which visitors are welcome to use. The installation will also have a performative element as it will host the editorial board of the Italian design magazine ABITARE for the five days of the event.

Das Konzept is a laboratory for design, retail, and production focusing on new ways to conceive the work environment. In 2009, Das Konzept opened in Thun, Switzerland in Konzepthalle6, an exhibition space that showcases office concepts. In addition to the workstations of Das Konzept itself, Konzepthalle6 also includes a restaurant, a conference room, and a concert room. Das Konzept is a center of excellence for design and architecture.

2 Nancy 26/03/2013 at 07:43

Is this for sale? Where? How much? Love it!

3 LOWELL 26/03/2013 at 18:24

THIS CAN COME IN HANDY WHEN IT IS NECESSARY TO SET UP AN EMERGENCY TREATMENT / CARE FACILITY, AND FOR HEALTH CARE RELATED EVACUATIONS. A ANY IDEA ON PRICING AND AVAILABILITY. FLAME SPREAD RATINGS ON THE MATERIALS?

PLEASE KEEP IN TOUCH

4 vj davis 27/03/2013 at 16:46

How much?

5 vj davis 27/03/2013 at 16:46

Price?

6 Antonio Scarponi 27/03/2013 at 18:51

Hi, thank you for your interest. For the price you should contact the producer: http://www.daskonzept.ch

7 Allan Rhodes 27/03/2013 at 20:55

I thought in using it for hip hostel concept.

Great concept. Thanks

8 Manuel Sotelo 28/03/2013 at 04:38

Your exceptional concept should be presented for use in collective victims due to catastrofes. This would help people who are in shelters in public places have no privacy.
Very mobile, easy to transport and stackable, besides elegant.
I hope you are interesting in this idea, it will help a lot of people.
Best regards
Manuel Sotel

9 Antonio Scarponi 28/03/2013 at 06:23

Yes, this is one of the uses we were thinking wile designing it. Thank you for pointing that out. Antonio

10 Antonio Scarponi 28/03/2013 at 06:24

Absolutely. ;-)

11 Elsa 30/03/2013 at 20:53

Brilliant!!!!!

12 Ken Goldberg 02/04/2013 at 19:41

I love it.

Don’t know if it will get traction (hope so), but I love the art of trying something this outrageous that may not be that outrageous after all.

Having been in the business of serving the hospitality industry with products for nearly 40 years, this pop-up hotel is surely something I will pay attention to. Rob Curedale who posted this on Linkedin, has an uncanny way of not only asking simple great questions, but unearthing great concepts in design. I always find great pleasure and insight from his postings.

…And Bravo!! …To Italian architect Antonio Scarponi and visual artist Robert de Luca!!

13 Antonio Scarponi 02/04/2013 at 21:24

Thank you. I really appreciate your comment. :-)

14 maurika 04/04/2013 at 07:59

15 Antonio Scarponi 04/04/2013 at 09:04
