The fine balance between form and function

A well-designed interior can greatly enhance the functionality, comfort, and aesthetic appeal of hospitality spaces like restaurants, cafés, bars, hotels, spas, pubs. The designer takes into account a number of factors, including the layout of the space, furniture and decor, and the overall color scheme, while also considering the specific needs and preferences of the guests.

Additionally, a designer may consider factors such as natural lighting, airflow, and acoustics to create a space that is not only beautiful but also functional and comfortable, rendering the fine balance between form and function explicit. The iF Design Awards showcase those interior hospitality projects and products that succeed brilliantly in terms of form, function, and comfort from the hospitality perspective.


Hospitality Interiors

A hotel or apartment should be a beautiful, well-designed space with plenty of light, high-quality but low-maintenance furniture, high functionality in the bathroom or kitchen area. Likewise, creative decorative elements with elegant finishes help people feel comfortable as soon as they enter their room. Bars and restaurants convince with exclusive design, which takes visitors into new worlds the moment they use them.

Designers and manufacturers are welcome to apply with interiors for bars, bed & breakfasts, cafés, casinos, hotels, lounges, restaurants, spas and recreational areas, staff canteens and more. Product design for contract furniture and lighting in bedrooms, lobbies, bath, kitchen, as well as tableware, cutlery, or fabrics and textile for the hospitality segment.
