SLS Las Vegas Hotel Room Designs Uncovered
Here they are folks, the photographic evidence of the planned room renovations for the rebranded Sahara... SLS Hotel Las Vegas, as designed by former SBE Senior Design Manager in conjunction with Philippe S+arck design.
There are three photos in total and one floor plan in the set.
Spiffy, in a raw reclaimed industrial loft space sorta way, an aesthetic I certainly appreciate. I'm not so sure if this grim modernism will sell on Orbitz, though, particularly at a $300/nt price point when you've got 3,000 or so rooms worth of this stuff to sell each night.
Furnishings are sharp, even if they have that big box Scandinavian store style. I'm positive that the king bed room - the bed placed diagonally in the room - wouldn't last too long in an actual hotel housekeeping world. The intention is to have the room feel like a "party area or picnic in the room." Looks like the after party to me.
Another curiosity... do any of Sahara's hotel towers have windows that big?
Also worth reading is this 2008 article from Boutique Design, which describes a lot of what was - and still is? - planned for SLS Las Vegas.
So whaddya think? SLS Las Vegas... fact or fiction? At least now we know where a big chunk of that $30M bucks went - (Philippe Starck).
