    SLEEP... BarrJoinery in bed with Shaun Clarkson ID!

    BarrJoinery is proud to be partnering with Shaun Clarkson ID on an interiors project for The Sleep Event 2015 that is sure to inspire.

    In 2014, BarrJoinery took on its first project for Shaun Clarkson ID, resulting in a beautifully crafted cupboard for a commercial interiors project for Absolut Vodka. The project was a great success and as a result BarrJoinery became the go to company for the hotel guestroom competition they are entering at trade show The Sleep Event.

    The Sleep Event is Europe’s favourite and most established event dedicated to hotel design, development and architecture. The Sleep Event consists of a design-led exhibition, high-level complimentary conference and bespoke feature areas including the Sleep set competition, which is a hotel room design competition with life-sized hotel guestrooms.

    Contestants will each design a guestroom that draws on the essence of fairy tales to weave their own story, which touches on the human condition while playing with perceptions and disrupting the ‘norm’ to engage and nurture the guest in new ways.

    This year there are 5 contestants and Shaun Clarkson ID will be pulling out all the stops to make sure their space is outstanding. With a penchant for the avant garde and the extravagant, Shaun Clarkson ID is one of the leading interior design practices, acclaimed for their creative pulse and prolific works.

    “As our homes become increasingly luxurious and feel like mini boutique hotels, the need to create and deliver a heightened experience becomes ever more important. Our interpretation will deliver the essence of a fairy tale - over the top, beautiful and surreal,” says Shaun.

    Helping make Shaun’s vision a reality is a really exciting opportunity for BarrJoinery, proud to be commissioned based on the companies emphasis on quality and beautiful craftsmanship. ‘The team are working around the clock to bring this ingenious masterstroke of creativity to life, with the attention to detail and perfection of finish it truly deserves. We are all looking forward to seeing the final product in Islington on 24-25th November’ says Josh Hudson, BarrJoinery Manager.

    The Sleep Event, unrivalled as the most important sourcing and buying event for the hotel design sector, never fails to excite and inspire. It is also a hub for international business to take place; the 2014 edition welcomed a record-breaking number of visitors as well as attracting over 3,900 international hotel professionals. It is not only a destination that will get your creative juices flowing; it is the first port of call for the best quality products, designs and craftsmanship.

    ‘When Shaun Clarkson ID deliver a new concept the design world pays attention and when given a brief of fairy tales we know we are in for a treat. As one of London's most avant-garde design teams, Shaun Clarkson ID really knows how to bring fantasy to life in the most luxurious way. This concept will be delivered in collaboration with BarrJoinery whose reputation for quality and craftsmanship in building projects is very well established. I'm sure this partnership will produce something outstanding for the Sleep Event 2015’ said Andy Bishop, Creative Director for The Sleep Event 2015. Sleep 2015 will be the place to have those dreams and then also make them come true...
