‘hotello’ portable hotel room by antonio scarponi + roberto deluca

 

 

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.

 

designed by antonio scarponi in collaboration with visual artist roberto deluca for the swiss firm daskonzept, ‘hotello’, the 4 sqm unit is conceived to temporarily inhabit the empty lofts of the contemporary city. packed into a trunk, the portable space contains all the necessary elements needed to work and rest. it consists of a metal structure that supports a translucent and sound absorbent curtain. the volume can also be combined and aggregated in different configurations.

 

‘hotello’ will be presented at during milan design week 2013 at fabbrica del vapore from april 9th-14th.

  • Would the goal be to have many of these in a warehouse/unused space or for just a couple to easily be able to occupy and use such a space? The parallel to a cubicle is apparent but the ease of making use of a currently wasted space is appealing

  • Hospitals!

  • the provocation is interesting and worth contemplating, however is this proposition anywhere close to what would would be required? perhaps too contrived and just too ‘stylish’ an answer. Agree with Nicky, who is the user?

  • 0 privacy 0 bathroom, it is good that the storage module is on wheels, that way when your asleep someone can wheel it away without you knowing..

  • Excellent idea for emergency shelter – could easily set up heaps of these inside standiums, halls etc where residents may be forced to take shelter after natural disasters.

  • It looks good…But do you really think any one will ever use it and I don’t see, where will the person use it. Utility?
