This week I will launch a new series, which will take you straight to the creative minds behind some of the coolest HOSPITALITY CONCEPTS. I will introduce you to hoteliers and designers who love to admit „at the end of the day we are all crazy“ (quote Emanuela Garosci). What I want to reveal is their very PERSONAL WAY into hospitality, their view on CONTEMPORARY HOTEL CULTURE and their opinion about hotels as HAPPENING PLACES.
The idea for this series occurred to me when I did an INTERVIEW with Claus Sendlinger, the Founder and CEO of Design Hotels. Our conversation inspired me to take MY FASCINATION for thoughtful hospitality concepts and my love for creative entrepreneurs one step deeper than just enjoying it as a guest.
Hotels would always fascinate me. In my eyes, they are the smoothest way to get everything I love in one place: aesthetics, architecture, cool people and space to play: the morbide intellectual aka Thomas Manns „Zauberberg“, the smart „big in business“ lady, or the creative talent who would inhale design, architecture and people and create a new product out of it.
With this project, I follow up my first date with the hospitality industry 16 years ago. An internship in a four star hotel in Stuttgart was expected to build my way into a SPARKLING hotel future… But at the end of this tough week I knew two things: I wasn‘t made for getting up at 5 and I would rather explore this perfect playground with a certain distance…
Today, being the proud owner of the perfect exploration tool called Miss Creative Classy, it is time to get started. The series will kick off this week with one of my most interesting conversations ever: Claus Sendlinger in a NEUE KREATIVE KLASSE interview.
Love to have you with me.
