Tokyo – The communal areas of hotels are increasingly designed to feel like home – a space where you can lounge and while away the hours on your laptop.
Hotel Emanon is an eating establishment that applies that home-from-home atmosphere to dining. The concept is designed as a lifestyle hub, where people constantly come and go, sit and spend time on a daily basis. The space consists of a check-in desk, the Daily Restaurant, a coffee bar and a shop. What's more, everything that guests use is available to buy – from the plate they are served food on to the chair they sit on.
This means Hotel Emanon is continually changing as new artwork and homewares are rotated into the line-up.
This is a space suited to The Convergence Economy, in which brands are forsaking sector lines and blending concepts to keep consumers engaged. Read the macrotrend for more.
