25 Hours Bikini Hotel Berlin - An "Urban Jungle"

I got back yesterday from a work trip in Berlin, where I was lucky enough to stay in the 25 Hours Bikini Hotel, an incredible new space designed by Werner Aisslinger, with a 360 degree roof terrace bar with panoramic views of the city and rooms that overlook the Berlin Zoo.

The "urban jungle" design of the hotel is realised through a mix of exotic greenery and industrial features such as exposed brick ceilings and metal piping, playing with "the contrast of nature and culture". In my opinion, this idea perfectly reflects the personality of Berlin, which is one of the few cities in the world actively grappling with the concept of urbanisation and what this means for the natural world (see current plans to turn Tegel airport into a "technology park" for the research and development of new urban technologies once the new airport is opened).

I'll be travelling to Berlin again in a couple of weeks for the Ethical Fashion Show, which has just launched their new and improved website. I'm really excited to see which brands are exhibiting and which designers are presenting their collections in the Green Showroom, which runs alongside Berlin Fashion Week.

Stay tuned for more!
