Sleep in a Piece of Graphic Design

Where can advertising go when its not advertising? Well, how about a...hotel?
For the launch of the rather boring looking Volkswagen Fox 21 (see below)


...international artists from the fields of graphic design, urban art and illustration each took on one or more of the rooms at Hotel Fox in Copenhagen. Here is the result.

Dryads by Rinzen

King's Forest by Birgit Amadori


The Royal Wedding by Container

Two Swans (Fertility Shrine) by Friendswithyou

King's Court by Birgit Amadori

Harmony's Helm by Friendswithyou

Tinkp Eepe by Freaklub


Japanese Garden by Tokidoki

Sleep Seasons by Rinzen

Spring Grove by Anke Vera Zink

Heavenly Palace by Friendswithyou



Promoting the actual car...looks good, but I feel the cool was lent. This isn't a particularly breakthrough design and I wonder how tenuous the actual link between the car and the hotel really was. Were the creatives given a brief that told them the car designers really thought outside the box? Was it meant to be a modern urban environment car? 

For more information on the stories behind these rooms or the artists involved visit the hotel site at : http://www.hotelfox.dk/
And if anyone has stayed there let me know!

Wow, I'd love to spend a night or two there. Japanese garden is my favourite, I have a weakness for tents in forests :)

My favourite are the King's Court and Palace.

It would be very nice to stay in the Spring Grove room. It must be very relaxing there. The artists really captured what the car designers would want for the launch.

If they wanted it to look like a relaxing ride then yes I agree Lily. Thanks for your comment.
