Hosted by Hostem, a new East London menswear bastion located on Redchurch St, Shoreditch, the initiative will bring it’s panache for the original by hosting a travel experience like no other. Created for the London Design Festival by JAMESPLUMB, who designed the store’s interior, the event will allow a select few the chance to spend one night in a truly unique and intimate installation – THE ONE ROOM HOTEL. By day, the space acts as an exhibition for the interior designer’s striking innovation and time-worn, lovingly restored pieces, all of them new and debuted for the first time. By night, anyone can gain a chance to spend the evening in this captivating enclave as the keys are handed over and the hum of Redchurch Street melts away. A stand alone suite with a separate entrance from the store, the space comes equipped with a considered library and a selection from JAMESPLUMB’s own film archive. Their latest bespoke designs will all be available to buy.
The project is the natural evolution for JAMESPLUMB, headed by two artists under one name, James Russell and Hannah Plumb. For their debut showcase in 2009, the design duo presented a transient interpretation of their home interior in a campaign tent at Tent London. They extended this to an installation which culminated in their first international exhibition ‘From This Day Forward’ curated by Diana Marrone for the Fuorisalone during Milan Design Week 2010. Of their new venture, they say: “We wanted to take our installations a step further and allow others to inhabit them rather than just pass through, to have the experience for themselves.” Taking place from the 18th-26th September, the public are invited to make their case for a free nights stay via the HOSTEM or JAMESPLUMB websites.
