Another example of perfectly implemented storytelling in hotel interior design has been finished in Manama, capital of the Kingdom of Bahrain.
The hotel allows the guest to remember exactly where he is by showing hand-sketched graphics of the kingdom and its culture in various locations throughout the hotel. Ibis Styles Manama is not just a simple guest accomodation but a 3-star hotel full of emotions and impressions.
Lang+Lang and 360 decoro did not just work closely with the interior designer (MMAC) to develop the actual art and content but also provided proper material consultancy to the client (Action Hotels). In the end, the story has been implemented on high-quality non-woven wall covering.
Starting at the hotel entrance, the graphics reflect both the skyline of the city as well as some cultural elements (fort, dhow, oud instrument) incorporated in the shelves. Coming up to the corridors, the guest is able to experience a modern interpretation of the typical Arabic mashrabiya pattern leading through the hotel. Finally, inside the guestrooms the skyline of the city of Manama is providing a refreshing decoration to the walls behind the headboard.
Ibis Styles Bahrain is the second project in Middle East reflecting a story inside a hotel branded by Accor. The idea is to create a general interior design branding as part of the corporate identity that is repeating in all hotels. An additional local touch is given into guestrooms and some other hotel areas to create a connection to the different city or country.
