BERLIN, Keeping that travel flame aglow, we've tapped some of our very own talented photography teams to bring our most adored imagery to intrepid adventurers missing the open road. Robbie Lawrence, Claus Brechenmacher & Reiner Baumann, and Björn Ceder have contributed three prints that collectively speak to the power of visionary architecture in sublime settings, ever underscored by heartfelt hospitality. With these beautifully printed images, glance into the serenely minimalist portals of Setouchi Aonagi in Japan, Tsingpu Tolou Retreat in China, and Vora in Greece.


Over the years we've had the good fortune to work with some supremely inspired photographers who've not only visually captured our hotels around the world, but have also helped us tell the stories of our hoteliers and their place in the world. Mystical and moody, these three images (Format 30 × 45 cm incl. white margin, blind embossing), printed in Germany on 308 g/sqm paper work as stand-alone art works, or as a poetic triptych, united in their tones and ethereal wonder.

Ksenia Starikova, Design Hotels VP of Brand Experience, said, "Design Hotels has always celebrated standout creatives; whether it be the Originals behind each of our member hotels, the interior designers and architects that craft every project, or the photographers who capture the work of these visionaries. With our first art print series we are honoring those visual collaborators who have always captured the essence of our members in a beautiful way — with the aim to develop the series as we continue to explore new artistic and design ventures."

We've joined forces with these visual collaborators to donate 100% of the profits of our first 20 prints sold to Weforest, an initiative we are passionate about. WeForest empowers communities to sustainably advance and implement innovative, high-standard, scalable, and lasting solutions to restore forest landscapes.

The prints can be purchased from our online store: Individual prints retail at 85 euro (excluding frame and shipping)


Since 1993, Design Hotels has been crafting a portfolio which today includes 300+ privately owned and operated hotels that reflect the vision of independent hoteliers—or "Originals"—with a passion for culturally-rooted hospitality and cutting-edge design and architecture. From the pioneering boutique hotels of New York, Paris, and London, to the rising stars of Shanghai, Mexico City, and Nairobi, to remote mountaintops, hidden beaches, and off-the-beaten-path escapes, each independent hotel in the Design Hotels hand-picked collection is a wholly unique creative expression, steeped in the history, culture, and the nature of its environment.

Founded by Claus Sendlinger in 1993, Design Hotels offers its members insightful travel industry knowledge, from market trend consultancy to international sales representation. The company has its headquarters in Berlin and branches in Los Angeles, New York and Singapore. In 2019, Design Hotels joined forces with Marriott Bonvoy, enabling its member hotels to have both a greater and more selective reach while offering its Community the benefit of the industry's leading loyalty program. | @designhotels | #designhotels
