Friday Fun: colour -- in a hotel guest room!

Au Vieux Panier panic_3All that colour in a hotel guest room! We work with lots and lots of hotel designers but we could not think of anyone with the courage/desire/client to do this one.

We did note that he or she had lost confidence half way through the job.

Well, it turns out that it was not created by an interior designer at all, but by the graffiti artist Tilt:

Au Vieux Panier panic_4It is in the Au Vieux Panier hotel in Marseilles, where each room has been designed by a different artist. This is what Tilt says about the commission:

The hotel Au vieux panier ask me to design a room, I first told them that I wasn't interested doing just decoration in the room but I wanted to create something that will look more like an installation.

I thought about it also as a huge canvas where I needed to think about the composition and play with the empty white part of the room to accentuate more the idea of Chaos on the other part.

Then I asked my friend Tober who gat a great old school style for tags, Grizz who is also the man behind the camera and Don Cho who is a Hip Hop singer from Marseille but who used to be a tagger from my home town Toulouse.

It took one week to do the whole thing cause the idea was to exaggerate what you can usually see in some abandoned places.

Too much tags, too much drips, too much sentences, too much throw ups ... What I also wanted to show is that people can appreciate any type of graffiti, even the more basic, it's just a matter of point of view ...

We thank Hotelchatter for bringing this to our attention. Go to the hotel's own web site to see the other amazing rooms that have been created so far. Au Vieux Panier looks like a cool place to stay in a cool city....
