Melbourne – Australian creative studio Right Angle has teamed up with Tourism Victoria to open a pop-up hotel room to promote the city.
Part accommodation, part gallery, part cultural therapist, the Lost & Found hotel room is an extension of the Lost & Found online cultural guide, and will offer its subscribers the chance to stay in the room for free.
‘People – at least our inner-urban audience – don’t want to feel like they’re part of this big thing,’ Right Angle creative director Barrie Barton tells LS:N Global. ‘There is an increasing obsession with micro, intimate and granular events.’
The room will tell a story about the types of people and products that define Melbourne. Guests can sit at the Arte Veneta work desk built nearby or on the Pierre and Charlotte couch. Aesop products are also available, alongside Melbourne-based Amanda Maxwell’s novel Nobody Told Me There’d be Days Like These and linen by local artisans Third Drawer Down.
