To celebrate their 10 year anniversary book publisher and website Design Hotels are publishing an oversized “XXL” version of their annual Design Hotels Book for 2013 – complete with a companion coffee table to hold the 25kg book.
Two versions of the book will be published, the usual coffee table and the limited edition XXL, with both editions having the same content, but for 2013, double that of previous issues.
Design Hotels went one step further for the limited edition XXL tome, they partnered with Finnish design brand Artek to create a version of Alvar Aalto’s famous Stool 60 and a table specially customized to accompany each copy of the 25kg XXL book.
As for the book, a preface by publishing guru Angelika Taschen looks back at the hospitality movement that Design Hotels helped kick-start.
With 150 destinations, Design Hotels the book is a visual journey around the globe that also documents the creative spirits that brought each unique hotel property to life.
“Step inside the minds of these independent thinkers who’ve dared to push boundaries and create unparalleled experiences.” says Design Hotels.
“A focus on design, a strong sense of community and a neighborhood connection are the guiding principles that bring these distinctive hotels under one umbrella.” Available at Amazon. More at Design Hotels.
