Over forty designers and artists worked on the interior. Some were chosen to create work to reflect on the building’s history and to add a new layer. In other cases, work was selected to fit with our vision of transparent, simple luxury.
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.
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
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
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.
Design of 68 bathrooms
'A series of lamps that incorporates the diversity of reclaimed glass and ceramics into their production process, making every single lamp that is produced unique.'
Design of several carpets - 'The hand crafted process means that each time, the designers are interpreting the mix of dye and yarn and creating an individual work of art.'
