MVRDV was founded in 1993 by Winy Maas, Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie de Vries in Rotterdam. Still a young agency at the time, in 2004 they were approached by our artistic director, Suzanne Oxenaar to transform the Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy. MVRDV is now a 70-strong studio with international projects and global acclaim.
Joep van Lieshout
An internationally acclaimed designer, Van Lieshout’s Lloyd bathroom design and 8-person bed in our Rough Music Room have become Lloyd icons. He runs Studio Van Lieshout based in Rotterdam. His work has been featured in international art and design collections including the Stedelijk Museum, Fondazione Prada, Art Basel and Frieze.
Jongstra is well known for her emphasis on bio-diversity and the preservation of natural and cultural heritage through her felted creations. Her ‘Cherry Blossom’ felted shutters can be seen on the South-facing side of the hotel. Her work has been exhibited globally in (amongst others) Victoria & Albert Museum, the Stedelijk Museum and MoMA.
Seyferth designed designed the interior of 30 monumental rooms at the North side of the building.
These are the smallest rooms which could not to be altered during renovations, and were not able to accommodate a wardrobe. Seyferth came up with an efficient design which enabled guests to make it their personal space.
Scholten & Baijings
The Amsterdam-based design duo Scholten & Baaijings created the brightly coloured mural in Lloyd meeting room the "Lloyd Zaal". They were also responsible for the 2010 pop-up "Llove Hotel" in Tokyo in 2010, for which they designed an "infertility room".
Royaards' iconic bedside light is usually combined with night table in the same style. It was originally conceived as a Christmas Tree around 2000, when highgloss aluminium first became available. Later it was developed into a light looking like a pictogram.
Spread out over public spaces, hallways and a number of hotelrooms are furniture objects by Marcel Wanders. Lights, sofas, benches, chairs.
Notably his VIP Chair in Divina Melange Wool, which was designed for the Dutch pavilioin at the World Expo 2000 in Hannover, Germany. This was the same event that marked the breakthrough of the Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy architects, MVRDV.
Piet Hein Eek
Eek’s Crisis Bed for children and his Rocking Chair are used at Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy for they fit in perfectly with a building dense with stories and details.
Piet Hein Eek advocates that you should work with the materials at hand. For him, this meant he started designing chairs from matches. At his graduation show at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 1990 he attracted attention with his Scrapwood Cupboards. He was interested in the aesthetics and functionality of imperfect materials. Twenty years on, he runs an international company making scrapwood furniture. His design philosophy is still the same: to make unusual objects using simple production methods.
