Poznan Pop-Up Hotel
Architects Jerzy Wozniak and Pawel Garus of Mode:Lina Architektura and Consulting, have created a pop-up hotel to solve the Polish city of Poznan’s shortage of accommodation during the Poznan International Fair – the biggest industrial trade fair in the country – which draws 13,000 exhibitors alone.
The Quotel space features furniture made from plywood, as well as pieces from budget furniture store, Ikea. Clusters of light bulbs act as chandeliers in the common areas, which include a living room and a kitchen, and recycled shelves and secondhand furniture add character without stretching the budget. Quirky sayings, such as: ‘A big blanket makes a person sleep late’, are printed on the walls in each room. The Quotel is easily converted back into a residence when necessary.
