Pop Life Hotel
Pop Life is located in Mexico City and its concept deals with the coloring and the psychedelic dynamics of 60s and 70s. Lighting and furniture reflect a Pop Art and modernist influence. This is a hotel and motel with modern facilities and a friendly atmosphere.
Each room has its own Jacuzzi and the suites are decorated with green, white, red and orange tiles. In the lobby, guests are welcomed by a Warhol-like painting of Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Jimmy Hendrix and other artists.
For the Pop Life hotel project we start by selecting several elements that recreate in the space through materials and design details inspired by great artists of the time as Warhol, Lichtenstein, Robert Indiana, Rauschenberg and Oldenburg and many others.
In all the project the details are inspired by the representative images of the 60 or 70. One we like the most are the colors for the floor, in addition to covering the entire room, giving rise to certain base walls bright colors. Another striking element is the design of tubular furniture upholstered in shades of synthetic materials very happy.
Geometric shapes, another important characteristic of this movement, such as circles, squares and triangles, are represented in pottery, items in the bedside and the pattern of the quilt, among others. We did a tribute to illustrations with a great photomural at the bottom of the bed, for which there was a special photo session and post production were applied overlapping shapes psychedelic effects that highlight the shape of the pattern and colors.
Each room space, in addition to a functional solution is presented to the user as a playful atmosphere. Thus, basic and necessary items like bed, sprinkler or table become game pieces that complement the design, such as geometric figures at the foot of the bed. The whole concept has a palette of 3 colors as a base. These are green, orange and red that are applied to the upholstery, ceilings and walls of randomly generating a different pattern combinations for each room, with the idea that different areas receive.
This adventurous combination of colors and proportions are also variable amount of the 3 different photo murals.
It was a mixture of LED lighting, fluorescent and incandescent to achieve different scenes by simply pressing buttons to turn on and off different lights. Likewise, combined direct and indirect light to create different lighting levels and generate playful atmosphere, fun, intimate and other than users will surely invent.
