Design showcase: Top five designs with screens

by | 22 Dec 2021 | Design, Design Showcase

We examine hotels in New York City, Shanghai, Tokyo and beyond that cleverly use screens to break up large internal spaces in our latest TOPHOTELDESIGN exclusive.

Dividing a space without actually having to build a wall has its benefits. It provides some level of privacy while allowing light to seep through, enabling the room to keep its dimensions.

Divide and conquer

Apart from that, interior design masterminds take these partitions as a huge opportunity to say something special.

Today, we’ve selected five projects with screens that have unique and original characteristics, which transform the whole experience of visitors.

The Sukhothai Shanghai, submerged in Thai heritage, surrounds guests with screens inspired by the notion of gardens in a minimal and sophisticated way.

Andaz Tokyo Toranmon Hills surprised us with its curved partitions that divide groups of tables. These screens aren’t just interesting from a shape point of view, but also from a material perspective since they’re made with woven natural rope.

New York LaGuardia Airport Marriott’s sublime tapestries that act as room dividers are true pieces of art, becoming a key element in the whole design layout.

Skytel Hotel Chengdu’s dynamic curved silk screens provide a peaceful transition between two worlds filled with artistic taste.

And Amanyangyun’s screens, which in this case act as a roof instead of a wall, are exemplary role models when it comes to wood craftsmanship, filtering natural light through traditionally inspired motifs.
