An exhibition by the Design Products department of the Royal College of Art, London.
Hotel RCA takes the spaces and functions of a hotel, such as the Reception, bar, private bedrooms and service areas, as an organizational structure to exhibit a broad selection of new designs. At the RCA, Design Products is a two-year postgraduate masters course including many diverse design approaches, from ingenious and practical new products, to more speculative and contemplative works, and experiments with materials and techniques.
With about 75 students from 20 countries, the course is truly international. Hotel RCA includes work by many current students, and graduates from 2009. One of these designs, the folding electric plug by Min Kyu Choi, recently won the Brit Insurance Design of the Year award.
Students often work on collaborative projects with industrial partners. A recent project was an exploration of the new Ultradur plastic with BASF, the results of which are in this exhibition.
We hope you enjoy your stay at Hotel RCA!
