Container Plus has obviously been one of my main influences throughout my past few projects because of their black and white drawings and interesting set designs, so by now i pretty much know their quirky website inside and out! As part of a VW Fox project, CP designed 4 rooms for Copenhagen's Creative lifestyle hotel which you can see in the below images. Even when i was concentrating on a past project which had nothing to do with room design, i'd keep referring back to these images because they really appealed to me and i am glad that i can use them in my FMP as one of my influences. Their collaged collaborations of photographs and ink drawing are very three-dimensional in that they “grow” across floors and walls like multi-dimensional fairy tales that have escaped from their books. Container have published in magazines such as Elle and The Face and their first interior designs were for the London department store Selfridges.
For the launch of the new Volkswagen Fox 21, international artists from the fields of graphic design, urban art and illustration turned Hotel Fox in central Copenhagen, into the world’s most exciting and creative lifestyle hotel. It contains 61 rooms, 21 artists and 1000 ideas and each room is an individual piece of art - from wacky comical styles to strict graphic design, from fantastic street art and Japanese Manga to simply spaced out fantasies. You can find flowers, fairytales, friendly monsters, dreaming creatures, secrets vaults....the list goes on. Here is the link to Hotel Fox's website for you to take a furthur look: www.hotelfox.dk
The image of the red room is called 'Clubs - The Secret Palace'. CP came up with a royal theme for their four rooms “to emphasise the feeling of being special that one gets when one stays in a hotel.” They also based their rooms on the four suites in a pack of cards. Room 309 is clubs: “FOXy deep red paints and fabrics mixed with a dark and sultry palette makes this a seductive and sophisticated room. It is designed to intoxicate and relax – like a nightclub with beautiful sexy princess women, party-divas, and men who look like clowns.”
