Interior Hotel W Osaka
Concrete’s latest interior project is W’s first hotel in Japan. W Osaka offers a total of 337 guest rooms and suites in a 27-story high-rise building designed by Nikken and a black monolith facade designed by Tadao Ando. The building is due to open in March 2021.
Concrete’s team of Dutch designers explored Osaka’s past, present and future, its urban and natural landscapes and its fascinating culture that can be found in the city. They discovered that Osaka is water and nature but also neon and bright colours. The contrast between the aesthetic of Japanese minimalism and the extravagance of an urban world saturated with colour is striking. Especially in downtown Osaka and Dotonbori, Osaka’s nightlife district, the display of flashing neon is breathtakingly vivid and joyful. The goal is to share the spirit of the city with the guests of W Osaka and let the interior of the hotel tell a story that is truly Osaka.
