As a satellite programme partner of Singapore Design Week (SDW) 2019, Naumi Hotel is inviting local design students to create a new concept for one of its rooms every quarter.
Project #210, named after the room number at Naumi, the Singaporean-owned hotel will provide up-and-coming talents from local design institutions with a blank canvas to create their vision.
The initiative is supported by Goodrich Global, XTRA, Guerilla X and Matsushita.
The first team to win the opportunity is Nurul Hanis, Nia Astira, Nuri Khairiyyah and Tracy Lim, who are final-year Retail & Hospitality Design students from Temasek Polytechnic.
The opening concept for Project 210, which will launch during SDW, is inspired by Tyler The Creator, a creative personality in music, TV and fashion. The concept hopes to catch the attention of the next generation of travellers with its bold style using colour-blocking, lightings and designer furnishing from Muuto. Much of Tyler The Creator’s work is taken from 1970s street style, hip hop and skate culture, and a result the designers are looking to create a vibrant, and above all, playful space.
For the duration of SDW from March 4-17, 2019, the Project 210 room will be bookable at S$250++ (US$185) per night (inclusive of breakfast for two).
The pop-up room will join the current inventory of four designer-themed rooms available at the hotel.
