‘Space, the final frontier...’ Ok, strictly speaking we’re not actually in outer space, but in Nuremberg – right next to Plärrer, to be exact. Though when you look at the interior of our Motel One, you might get the impression that you’ve landed in a distant galaxy. But why does our Nuremberg design reach for the stars? Because the Nicolaus-Copernicus-Planetarium is located just around the corner. A quick refresher from the (perhaps somewhat dusty) school textbook: in 1543, Nicolaus Copernicus’s heliocentric model, which declared that the sun was at centre of our solar system, started a revolution and laid down the foundations of modern astronomy. We thought that’s something worth making a little tribute to in our interior design – design that puts you as the guest at the centre of our universe.
