The Barcelona Chair by Mies Van Der Rohe

Mies Van Der Rohe’s Barcelona chair, 1950ies. If you can’t find sustainably-made furniture, go second hand/vintage! There’s plenty of stuff out there; who needs more?

Fans of designer Seung-Yong Song

We like designer Seung-Yong Song’s objects and believe it’s not for nothing that he won the 2013 W Hotels Designers of the Future Award. More information on Dezeen and diarioDESIGN (in spanish).  

Minimalist bedrooms and furniture is all your need

This, and a very good bed, could probably be enough furniture for a hotel room.

Upcycled old drawers

We like the upcycled furniture by Reborn Recraft Atelier in the Born (Barcelona). Old drawers have plenty of after-life possibilities, like the Cojonuda Table by Pöko Design.  

Closets in hotel rooms? No thanks!

More simple storage solutions to replace chunky, bad-smelling hotel closets… Also view: 7 day closet, multifuncional structure, chairs as shelving system, DVELAS hanging line and this recycled paint bucket storage solution.  

7-day-closet for hotel rooms

This is the kind of furniture we’d like to see in hotels- simple and flexible use, easy cleaning, not bulky, and, eco-friendly (100% renewable, easy disassembly, fully biodegradable and long-lasting). 7-day-closet by studio248  

100% recycled and made in Barcelona

We like products 100% made in Barcelona, and if they are 100% recyclable even more so! So we like Boo in Barcelona.  

Nido occasional tables made in Spain

Nido is a set of occasional tables (like when you want to have your suitcase displayed openly in the hotel room) made in Valencia from solid oak. A design from the 60s, still valid today.  

Murphy beds made in Spain

Nice Murphy Beds from Spain by Sellex, who seem to have a solid environmental policy. Perfect for hotel beds that are not constantly in use.  

Nephew and uncle do ecodesign

When nephew (designer) and uncle (sunblind craftsman) get together, beautiful eco-friendly and local products appear! Check out El Nebot del Persianer for the kind of products we want to have in our hotel.
