We were commisioned to design a ‘skin’ for the Entrance Cube. The Entrance Cube is a service point, where guests are welcomed when they check in. Because the actual reception desk is planned at the 6th floor, the Entrance Cube is the first impression of the W Hotel.
We designed a transparent ‘skin’, that is completely made with our Endless technique, somewhat like 3d printing. The transparent ‘skin’ is from recycled material and allows it to be lit from the inside out. The entrance cube makes a strong presence in the entrance of the W Hotel. The structure of the lines functions as little lenses and direct and diffuse the light, so that it is not unpleasant to look into. In the evening the LED lights work magic and the object changes into a lamp which makes the guests of the W Hotel feel even more welcome.
