DESIGN ME AN OBJECT
The design competition that awakens young talent.
Our challenge was to connect ibis Styles with the design world whilst reinforcing its positioning with families and ensuring the quality of the experience for young and old. And so we put our trust in the new generation of designers by launching the ‘Design me an object’ competition. The students of Paris’ leading design school ENSCI, and with the support of Brichet Ziegler Studio, came up with fifteen projects, each one as unusual as it was ingenious. It led to three finalists and one overall winner who saw their incredible project for a nomadic hut come to fruition with the introduction of the Cabanadodo. This modular and fun structure allows children to create their own space in a room shared with their parents.
9,700,000 The Cabanadodo wowed guests and hoteliers thanks to its inventive design and was unveiled in an exclusive partnership with ELLE magazine - generating 9,700,000 impressions - and featured at Paris Design Week’s OFF exhibition. There are now Cabanadodo’s in 28 ibis Styles hotels worldwide.
