DESIGN HOTELS™ PRESS RELEASE - 18.05.2009: ART MEETS HOSPITALITY: DESIGN HOTELS™ EXHIBITS AT THE DMY INTERNATIONAL DESIGN FESTIVAL BERLIN 2009

  1. 1. ART MEETS HOSPITALITY: DESIGN HOTELS™ EXHIBITS AT THE DMY INTERNATIONAL DESIGN FESTIVAL BERLIN 2009 Berlin, 18 May 2009 – Design Hotels™ will show its Made by Originals exhibition at the DMY International Design Festival Berlin 2009 following a worldwide tour through 17 cities. The five-day festival invites international designers, professionals and design-lovers to a varied program of exhibitions, performances, lectures, workshops and open studios. It will take place from 3-7 June 2009. Design Hotels™ Made by Originals – The Exhibition The Design Hotels™ exhibition communicates a simple but essential core message: the human factor as the essence of its brand. All member hotels were created by Originals who are passionate, authentic individuals and as unique as the properties they brought to life. The exhibition features ten film portraits of selected Originals, giving spectators an up-close and personal look at the creative minds behind the hotels. Each film is displayed on a “3POD” stand designed by Maginwulf Studios. Design Hotels™ commissioned creative director Thies Wulf to create the entire hardware of the exhibition. The brief was simple but tricky: all the exhibition gear had to fit in only two suitcases, making travelling around the world a breeze. Wulf created an extremely compact installation made of ultra light carbon. He will also be responsible for setting up the Made by Originals exhibition in a 100m² gallery space at this years DMY Allstars event taking place in the IMA Design Village in Berlin. DMY 2009 „Same same, but different“, the slogan of this year’s festival does not only mark a general principle of design but also applies to the festival itself. Its participants are selected amongst the numerous applicants by recommendation of an international admission jury that consists of international designers who have chosen Berlin as their work and living place. Among them: Jurgen Bey (concept design), BLESS (fashion design), Jürgen Mayer H. (architecture/design), Jerszy Seymour (product & concept design) und Kyoka (sound design). For the first time in the six-year-history of the DMY the exhibitions will not only focus on innovative and experimental design of the up-and-coming generation (DMY Youngsters), but also present a second main exhibition called DMY Allstars that will serve as a platform for international design festivals, professional designers and established design brands such as Design Hotels™. -Ends-
