The Inclusive Hotel Room - meet the designers behind our sustainable initiative

Back in 2018 we invited designer Nicholas Sunderland to conceptualise a 'Hotel Room of the Future' to showcase at this very event- and now, four years later, we have revisited this idea with a new design partner, Cocoon & Bauer. Listen to this panel as our designers reflect on our event's key theme: the sustainability of the industry and discuss where they see the future of conscious design going.

To connect or to disconnect: How should we be designing hotel spaces for the future?

Design Insider lead this thought-provoking panel on what exactly the future traveller will want: do they long to completely relax, switch off from technology and focus on wellness? Or will they wish to be more connected than ever before, creating a hybrid work/living space fuelled by the latest tech? If there is space for both offerings, what does this future look like?
