INDEPENDENT HOTEL SHOW
STUDIO INGRID VAN DER VEEN
What if we stopped wondering, what if we stopped dwelling on the magic of life?
In the hectic life that we lead and accept, standing still and wondering is precisely the moment when we can turn inward again and give from there.
The Entrance of the Independent Hotel Show is The Lobby, designed by Hospitality Designer Ingrid van der Veen. She has created an experience in which we can leave the hectic behind us within 1 step and surrender to the calm.
The design is inspired by the natural element of water. Water is strength and vulnerability in one. When a drop falls into a water surface, a ripple effect is created. “I have used the drop in this design as a metaphor for the effect of my work for my clients: the subconscious effect of a good interior influences all kinds of areas in your hotel business.”
To create new ideas, inspiration needs to be processed by connecting the dots. The Lobby gives you the opportunity to tune in on this. “As creators, we have the magic to turn thoughts into tangible matter”.

No great design without great partners!
TEXTILES AND MORE
As a lover of textiles and bespoke pieces Ingrid worked together on the Lobby Design with Textiles & More for all the blue and red curtains as well as the bespoke printed carpets. Together they searched for the optimum in matching colors and materials. Visit us at in the Lobby or stand E08 to meet and see the endless possibilities for your hotel interior they provide in fabrics and printing on all amazing materials.
This year’s theme of the Independent Hotel Show is Five Senses, which fits in nicely with the vision of our studio to create total experiences for guests. Together with Inscentives Europe we created two different scent experiences for the red and the blue space. Come discover what fragrance adds for your hotel guests.
Ingrid likes to go off the beaten track with her designs, which is why she opted for sitting balls instead of regular chairs for the Lobby. Ella Health supplied the balls and to represent running water and to make the design more frivolous, Ingrid added fringes to balls.
Correct lighting is important for hospitality areas, which is why we team up with specialists on this and also paid attention to lighting in the Lobby. Living Projects took on the lighting design for both the red and blue space and Ingrid designed the paper origami chandelier above the bar.
