Designers to Recreate the Hotel Design Experience

Two Australian design firms will create the interiors of two hotel rooms from idea to fruition while visitors watch at the inaugural Hotel, Hospitality + Design 2010 (HH+D) exhibition.



The Dulux Refurbishment Stage will be divided into two sections - one half will be a 5 star hotel room refurbishment and the other a 3-4 star hotel room makeover.


Jodi Foster and Elizabeth Tam have been chosen to apply their skills in turning the rooms into examples of cutting edge interior design based on cost restraints and guest expectations.



Elizabeth Tam from Elizabeth Tam Design Company is an interior designer in the hotel industry, specialising in innovative design concepts of new and refurbished international hotels. She has over 25 years experience and has completed 36 hotel projects.


Tam will be creating the 5 star hotel room on the Dulux Refurbishment Stage at HH+D 2010.


Jodi Foster from Foster and Associates has over 20 years experience and commenced her journey into international interiors in 1993 in Europe and Asia working for retail, hospitality and commercial corporations.


She has expertise in the translation of corporate or individual identities into branded environments – particularly within the hospitality sector.


Foster will be creating the 3-4 star hotel room on the Dulux Refurbishment Stage and will be aided by her colleague Penny Ward, who has 17 years experience as a professional designer with her specialty being the leisure, hotel and hospitality sector.


Facilitating the designers will be John Eussen, who specialises in innovative design concepts, new interior decorating practices and sustainable lifestyle trends.


The Dulux Refurbishment Stage will take place at HH+D 2010 three times daily.


The Hotel, Hospitality + Design 2010 show will be held May 24-26 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
