Eight freshly graduated and final-year students of AMFI (Design & Fashion and Fashion & Branding) were selected to dress the rooms of hotel The Exchange. Each student was wholly responsible for their design concept.

Otto Nan & Suzanne Oxenaar

Hotel The Exchange is a concept of Otto Nan and Suzanne Oxenaar, who also initiated Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy and the Llove Hotel in Tokyo. The rooms of The Exchange are being dressed as if they are fashion models by (former) students of the Amsterdam Fashion Institute. Together with the Textile Museum in Tilburg special fabrics were being developed for the outfits of the hotel rooms.

INA-MATT

Matthijs van Cruijsen and Ina Meijer are designer duo Ina-Matt. They were responsible for the interior design of the hotel and have managed the AMFI students who fitted out the rooms. Essential to this process was to find a form which strongly emphasized the characteristics of the individual designers.
