Sleep + Eat 2019
Sleep & Eat, the hospitality design and innovation event, returned to Olympia for two days in November. The show offered designers, architects, operators and owners a unique chance to hear from the game-changers, to discover new products and expand their thinking. Over 160 design-led suppliers, manufacturers and artisans showcased their products and launched new collections. The event theme of “Social FlexAbility” explored the power of hospitality to stimulate human interaction in this age of digital isolation. Six international architectural and design firms were challenged to create concept guestrooms, a bar and a restaurant, all designed to inspire and intrigue. New for 2019, the popular socialising spot, the Sleeper Bar, was joined by a co-working space, The Hub – in response to the show theme.
For the bathroom sector, manufacturers again delivered a considered response to hospitality design with a selection of innovative new products.
