The heart of the hotel is the mural devoted to fashion in the inner courtyard, designed by the artist collective KLUB7 and inspired by Berlin’s subculture and urban roots. Different patterns and textures come together in the artwork to establish a connection to fashion and fabric. KLUB7 uses a symbiotic, contemporary working approach to create its pieces. The collective combines the various styles of the individual members, developing complex yet harmonious communal works that observers can interpret in a variety of ways.
The collective’s consolidation of different textures and styles is visible in the mural in the inner courtyard as well as the collage behind the reception. In the latter, the artists worked directly with fabrics, again allowing all the KLUB7 members to combine their individual technical skills to create a piece that plays off the topic of fashion. The material collage boasts a fascinating tension and depth due to the various colours and textures.
