Especially for the new exhibition in Lloyd Hotel, designer Sanne van de Goor created the series The Hotel Chronicles. Without the knowledge of hotel guests, their bed became part of this work. After check-out Sanne photographed the (untouched) hotel beds with her camera. How does someone leave their bed? And what beautiful patterns are created when you unconsciously open the duvet? Does the guest leave the bed untouched after getting up? Or is the duvet straightened before departure? Using the photographs as a starting point, Sanne made graphic work for the colourful woven canvases that can be seen during the exhibition in the Lloyd Restaurant.
Sanne’s designs often come with an unpredictable factor. She allows her work to be influenced by input from third parties. In the series The Hotel Chronicles participants were not aware of this.
Since studying graphic design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Sanne has worked as an independent designer on both self-initiated projects and commissions. She combines graphic, interactive and socio-artistic elements, seeking the tension between precision and randomness, chaos and control. Through this combination of visual and external participants, Sanne’s work contributes to a vision for new forms of collaboration within the current design landscape.
For The Hotel Chronicles Sanne made a series of 5 carpets for The Hotel Chronicles. The pattern is digitally woven with jacquard technique in cotton yarn on 180 x 130 cm. 2 of the 5 carpets are available on request.
