THE DESIGN HOTELS™ BOOK
Looking back & moving forward
We're older and bigger – and in our case that is a wonderful thing! In fact to celebrate this long, fascinating journey we started in 1993, we've gone oversize with The Design Hotels™ Book – all 800 wanderlust-inspiring pages of hotels – with two versions.
While both editions are twin souls of content they don't quite see eye to eye on size. These hard-covered collector's items in a fabric bind come in coffee table and XXL versions, and guarantee you'll be lost in design dreamland for a long time.

- PIONEERING TIMELESS DESIGN BY ARTEK
Founded in 1935, Artek was built on the legacy of Alvar Aalto, one of the world's most influential designers and architects, and has become a leading force in the world of modern design. Since its creation in 1933, Aalto's three-legged Stool 60 has become a touchstone of modern furniture design through its combination of understated, simple design and everyday functionality. Limited editions of the stool have been created by Mike Meiré, Tom Dixon, Nao Tamura, Mads Nørgaard and Rei Kawakubo (Comme des Garçons).

Filled with sumptuous photographs and an introduction from famous publisher Angelika Taschen, known for her work with the influential art press Taschen Verlag, the 792-page hardcover book looks back on two decades of innovative hotel design and forward to the future of cutting-edge hospitality.
