Fyra, a Finnish interior design company, has recently redesigned the interiors of the Cumulus Resort Airport Hotel in Vaanta, Finland.
As guests enter the hotel, a large ‘HELLO’ welcomes them, before reaching the reception desk that resembles a large traditional Finnish wooden dining table.
Off to the side of the reception area is a lounge with a giant media wall that shows clips of the Finnish nature.
Throughout the hotel, wood and other natural materials have been used to reflect Finland’s nature and design. In a work area, comfortable booths are paired with small laptop tables, while beside the windows, there’s a long wood table.
The hallways have been kept simple in their design, with hotel signage consisting of easily decipherable pictograms. Each floor also has a communal small kitchen with a microwave oven and a faucet with boiling hot water.
As hotel guests generally only stay for a night or two, and the size of groups may vary, the designers created some of the rooms to have fold-down beds that almost blend into the wall and look like cabinets.
To complement the light natural wood palette in the room, the bathroom has been kept bright as well, with floor-to-ceiling white tiles and a backlit mirror.
In another hotel room, the look is more dramatic with the use of dark wood. The built-in furniture is balanced by a open shelving unit with a desk and places to hang clothes.
To reflect the darker look of the hotel room (pictured above), the designers went with a darker tile in the bathroom.
