JOI-Design GmbH Interior Architects
JOI-Design is a leading interior design studio in Europe, specialized in Hotels, Restaurants and SPAs. <br />There are about 40 employees in the studio, mainly interior designers, but also architects, engineers and decorators.<br />The scope of works includes besides the interior design as well as the detail drawings, tender packages and site supervision, so JOI-Design starts usually from the concept design for a hotel, including functional layouts, and it leads until the final snagging and the graphics of signage and china ware in a hotel.<br />But JOI-Design is purely a service company, not a commercial or contracting company, so JOI-Design is always representing the interests of the investor and the operator.<br />JOI-Design has official registered branch offices in Dubai and Zurich both with little activity at the moment.<br />The activities of the office are not limited to a region, and JOI-Design recently did projects from Moscow to South America, but concentrates very much on Germany and Central Europe in the moment.<br />Currently JOI-Design is working on approximately 20 major hotel projects, like: Hilton Frankfurt Airport, Hilton Garden Inn Frankfurt Airport, Robinson Club Castelfalfi Tuscany, Steigenberger Hotel Hamburg City, Steigenberger Hotel Kaiserbad Heringsdorf Usedom, Dolce Hotel Munich, Le Meridien Parkhotel Frankfurt, Le Meridien Grand Hotel Nuremberg, TUI Hotel Kaluga/ Russia, Radisson Blu Hotel Hamburg Airport, Grand Hotel Wien, Hotel Gendarm nouveau Berlin, Alvisse Parkhotel Luxembourg and of course many new developments, which cannot yet be named.<br />

Shaping Atmosphere
Written by: JOI-Design
Article At JOI-Design, we have adopted the phrase “Shaping Atmosphere” as our mantra because this idea is at the heart of everything we do as hospitality designers. We, along with our industry colleagues, are aiming to shape just exactly the right “atmosphere” that will not only meet, but exceed, the expectations of the guests who use the spaces. To do so, it’s essential to recognise that hospitality design is a permanent compromise between functionality, housekeeping/maintenance issues, and creating a stylish environment for guests. Over the last 10 years there has been a massive shift from prioritising functionality and ease-of- maintenance towards placing a greater emphasis upon “design”. Hoteliers have woken-up to the realisation that design is one of the most important tools in their marketing kit for attracting guests - and that functionality and maintenance are issues which can be resolved without sacrificing style. Although of course a responsible designer still avoids the use of white carpeting in a restaurant! To fully satisfy these expectations, we need to understand what kinds of guests the property wishes to attract, what marketing and business angles the hotel will adopt, and what types of amenities would be anticipated from this specific product in this location. Next we must interpret how these objectives can be translated into an atmosphere, and then envision how this desired atmosphere could be transferred into the given space. At the same time, a designer has to have the insight - let’s call it intuition - to come-up with something innovative, but not too unexpected, so that guests are intrigued by delightful surprises but also feel comfortable and nurtured. Hospitality design does not need loud and flashy new design ideas. Guest in hotels, bars, restaurants and spas want to feel safe and secure – and maybe even cosy – since usually these are places where people go to relax, recover and savour a gastronomy, wine, or spa experience. These atmospheres are quite a contrast from those of a trade fair stand or a stylish retail boutique, which are designed to be particularly dramatic in order to capture people’s attention for only a few moments rather than encourage them to linger for hours. And naturally the interior design concept of an urban bar must be different from the atmosphere of a Swiss Alpine “raclette stuebli”, just as a Ritz-Carlton hotel needs a different style than an Ibis property. Yet in all these scenarios, functionality and ease-of-maintenance cannot be forgotten. So when one digs deeper, it turns out that this idea of “Shaping Atmosphere” is a rather complex job description for hospitality design!
