A Week – No, a Month – Fuck, Gimme a Year at the G Hotel

March 24, 2006 at 6:56 am (>$250, Special)

The G HotelWhile the name couldn’t be more minimalist, The G‘s decor is anything but. This five-star hotel in Galway on Ireland’s Atlantic coast opened at the end of last year, with its flamboyant rooms designed by milliner Philip Treacy. While the exterior is nothing to write home about, Treacy’s move from headgear to hotel interiors is definitely eye-catching. In particular, the creamy Grand Salon, which is lit by 300 of Tom Dixon’s mirror balls, and Gerry’s Bar, signified by a neon sign that reads “This Must Be The Place”.

Wow. Candylicious.

    I studied Philip Treacy for one of my projects whilst at university last year and the way that he has designed the room doesn’t suprise me one bit – he does ooze great talent and creative flare. I’ve actually just come to learn all about Tom Dixon’s work and I think its terrific and that it’s in lieu with helping preserve the environment. I happened to come across his work at the Super Contemporary Exhibition at the London Design Museum where an eco-friendly engine that belong to a 1949 Bentley Chassis is on show. A must see and there is a ticket giveaway http://www.supercontemporary.co.uk/?s=ticket-giveaway to which you should use if interested. I can also sort some tickets out for you ….
