Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy - Amsterdam, 1019 BN, The Netherlands

SPECIAL PROJECTS

These expand on the Lloyd Hotel past and present, which keeps spawning artistic reflections. Their nature differs widely; it can be educational, entertaining, philosophical or of the senses. As they are lengthier, more substantial or more frequent than our other Events, we created this special niche for them.

Slow Lloyd

  • 12583_457142197668044_1939588487_n

Lloyd Hotel has been Slow from the start. The citrus tart, the charcuterie, the tramezzini and all else that is edible is made using biological products from local suppliers. The tiles, paint, carpets and wall coverings are made by designers, artists and companies who work with natural products, like Claudy Jongstra, INA, Histor and MOSA. As there is always scope to extend the sustainability of Lloyd Hotel, the Cultural Embassy invited slow design expert Carolyn Strauss to start up a research programme in early 2010.
