Take a trip from stationery - at Play Design Hotel
Play Design Hotel is situated between Dadaocheng and Zhongshan, two design-culturally relevant areas. And unlike ordinary hotel operations, Play Design Hotel transforms hotel rooms into inhabitable design museum. Through design curation, we update room themes and design objects within constantly to provide different ways for the guests to experience Taiwan design. This August, Play Design Hotel has further converted a public transitional space between the hallway and balcony into a micro select shop to better showcase great local design objects to both our guests and non-guests.
The first curated exhibition for the micro select shop is “Take a trip from stationery”. We move our lenses from the room space to the desktop, stationery in particular, to review the developmental traces of the stationery designed and manufactured in Taiwan. We have incorporated ystudio's writing experience in the exhibition and invited opinion leaders from noted local select shops - pon ding, plain stationery, homeware & cafe, oneday, and vision stationery to share with us their philosophy of selecting to evoke conversations among travelers, independent curators, and us.
