Destination Design: nhow Berlin Hotel

Destination Design: nhow Berlin Hotel

“The nhow Berlin is Europe’s first ever music hotel, uniting music lovers from all over the world to stay and play together.

Located on the river Spree in an area where creativity is flowing, you can be sure that stepping outside the hotel will bring you as much creative inspiration as being inside. With a stunning exterior by architect Sergei Tchoban that nicely complements the dramatic interiors by Karim Rashid, the entire experience feels like it’s moving to the beat of a different drum.

Catering to musicians and other creatives, the hotel features a recording studio with panoramic views of Berlin in cooperation with the legendary Berlin Hansa-Studios as well as its very own music manager. About 30 TV and 50 music radio stations integrated in a state-of-the-art entertainment system. The hotel is constantly hosting live events and concerts and there is always a top DJ spinning in the bar.

Additionally, there are tons of other amenities. Fabrics Restaurant nicely complements the musical theme with funky soul food — modern Franco-German — from Berlin native Head chef Patrick Rexhausen.”

Cavalier is a project by Taylor C. Pemberton an alumnus of SCAD. I discovered the Cavalier vintage line on FFFFOUND.

Cavalier Essentials is a line of vintage products designed for the rugged, yet sophisticated gentleman. Cavalier was always briefly explained as–“If Steve McQueen carried a beat-up leather duffle bag on the back of his motorcycle; what would be in it and how would the products look?” This simple idea married an appreciation for lifestyle design and vintage accessories. All of the products possess a hand-made quality while responding to the modern influences of today’s culture.
