Two furnishing concepts we developed under the name of ROOOMS for the ‘NWW Design Award 2017’ themed “The New Hospitality - How furniture supports us in the art of hosting” – which was announced by ‘Neue Wiener Werkstätte’.
The idea behind both of our concepts is constant – endeavouring to create new room(s) that enable spacial elements of privacy for your guests, no matter how limited your living space is …

1.) GUEST ROOOMS
Whether it’s a spontaneous overnight guest, a weekend visit from your best friend or a spare bed for an emergency – in times of increasingly expensive housing, the intelligent division of living space is gaining significant relevance and demands a high degree of commitment in the ‘art of hosting’. ‘Guest Roooms’ offers a flexible room-in-room solution to create a private retreat for guests, even within the smallest living space.
In times of globally networked friendships, the maximum use of one’s own (living) space - e. g. to create private areas for guests - is becoming increasingly relevant.
‘Rooommate’ is a 2-part furniture combination that adapts to guest requirements through the flexible utilisation of modular components - and can be easily used as storage space, a side table, wardrobe or even as a compact workspace.
‘ROOOMS’ is a joint project by Open Studio and Büro Steinhoff. On a project basis, the collaborative aim is to engage the concept of living space across new and unconventional perspectives.
