Heiner Meyer (Bielefeld)


The artist's associations have conjured up the Hollywood of the '50s and '60s, including the elfin icon Audrey Hepburn, who became the glamour figure of the era like no other actress could.

In the room designed by Heiner Meyer, her incomparable eyes keep watch at the head of the bed; upon entering the room the hotel guest is pulled under their spell. Quite a few other details from the language of Meyer's pictures can be found in the room as well. The pomp of Hollywood stars of the era are portrayed just as we remember them from the old magazines; allusions like the dressing room mirror, the chandelier hanging from the ceiling, the opulent drapes, as well as the zebra skin (an imitation, of course) keep your expectations at play.

The momentum of various styles constantly threatening to tip has been consciously slipped into the design.
