HOTEL BABULA

Where once old-fashioned dusty wallpaper gave the rooms their setting, the conceptual artist has created a new atmosphere – a new raw wall design.

THE CONCEPT OF THE WALL DESIGN

The trained master painter worked with a technique developed and perfected over many years that combines aesthetics with the element of natural raw decay.

3RD FLOOR / ROOM 309

Incorporated into the plaster shows the cut end of a narrow wooden beam. The pattern of the wood harmonizes with the pattern of the artificial patina on the wall. Large broken out areas reveal multi-layered plaster. The fascinating look of the imperfect blends into a captivatingly rounded concept.

WATCH THE BEAUTY OF RAW

1ST FLOOR

The tear-off strips of the old wallpaper were the form-givers for the wall design conceived here. Smooth and slightly wavy feels the substrate.

On this masonry canvas Alexander Queisser has brought wonderfully imitated patina of various material decay processes.

2ND FLOOR / THE SUITE

Four windows and a loggia flood the suite with light. Here the sun's rays fall on cloudy looking background. Light pastel tones create a subtle interplay of colors and textures.

INTRODUCTION

From the first to the top floor, one signature runs through despite the different looks. It is the unmistakable aesthetic with which Alexander Queisser makes each room unique and yet creates a coherent overall concept.

"There are real treasures hiding in the rooms".

5TH FLOOR / ROOM 505

The marble-like wall at the front of the bed in Room 505 looks spackled and brushed. It leaves the impression of a changing sky, with iridescent cloud formations drifting across it.

 

There are subtle tones of gray, beige, with small translucent patches of soft light blue and pale pink. Some areas emerge porous like karst rock, others look finely scratched. And yet both looks feel smooth, almost soft.

 

The reduced interior emphasizes the patina of the wall.

4TH FLOOR / ROOM 410

Under the plaster in room 410, the pattern of old wallpaper shines through, barely visible.

 

A white trim strip about a hand's width just below the ceiling accentuates the natural colors of the elegantly designed walls.

 

The color scheme of pale gray, beige and blue is echoed in the furniture and upholstery. The combination creates a harmonious atmosphere of calm and naturalness.

"I brought the walls into a raw balance."
