Hotel WIND, designed by TEAM BLDG based around the word “growing” in reference to a building “breaking out from the ground”. Obviously the building is designed by an architect and built by a construction team, but it’s also built around air, the earth, the weather, and the people on site. Located behind the hotel is Yunding Mountain where the ARCHITECTURE  firm learned more about the local history from a resident who talked about the warm, moist weather and how it created an abundance of green vegetation. This gave them the idea of designing architectural boxes “growing” from the mountain and Hotel WIND began.

The minimal lobby is the meeting place for three different installations that were installed: a well of rain, well of trees, and well of wind. They begin from the roof and pass by some of the guest rooms and eventually land in the lobby. You’ll see more on those later.

DROOG’S NEW WALLPAPER INSPIRED BY CLASSIC WORKS OF ART






Droog is set to launch a wallpaper collection this fall that was inspired by classic works of art from Rijksmuseum and Dutch church buildings. Working with designs from graphic designers, like Irma Boom and Mieke Gerritzen, as well as Studio Droog, the bold collection brings a bit of Dutch history to life on your walls.

Berries and Branches: Droog translated the classic green silkscreen, “Silk Fabric with Colourful Painted Floral Pattern”, which was made from 1775-1800, into a wallpaper filled with berries and branches, as the name suggests.
