Voyage into... by Jeffrey Beers International

Innovations in the world of hospitality, also conveyed through a series of talks, round tables and site-specific installations such as Designed Spaces, where design becomes the protagonist of refined lounges, exclusive cafes and convivial places. Every display has been formulated by an important team of sector professionals, and furnished with products from the exhibitors of BDNY: Hyatt, for example, presents “Unapologetically Thompson,” a setting to reflect on the modern, sophisticated aesthetic of the New York brand, amidst daring features and sculptural shapes, brutalist inspirations and soft forms. Voyage into… by Jeffrey Beers International – the partner Nikoletta Stagias explains – “reflects JBI’s embrace of project-specific narratives in combination with our current thoughts on our present situation.” In a landscape of deep waters, with colorful organic forms, visitors are immersed in a sensory experience conveyed by furnishings, works of art and lighting design.
Villa Le Meridien by Marriott International and Saguez&Dash is like an elegant New York penthouse wrapped in a “French glamour” atmosphere, an authentic oasis of the imagination that can be transformed: a café during the day, a cocktail lounge in the evening. “The concept was originally inspired by the photography of Slim Aarons and the idea of hosting a chic house party,” says Linda Laucirica, senior director for design and project management of Marriott.
Finally, Bijou by Sims Patrick Studio is like a “treasure chest of curiosities” contained in the concept of a futuristic New Age speakeasy. A closed box, apparently anonymous, where you can cross the threshold and plunge into a world of discovery and wonder: a surreal monochrome shelter featuring interactive artworks, organic forms and linear geometries, 1920s graphics and a touch of the avant-garde.
