Recycled Suitcases For Design

Say hello to China’s very first carbon neutral hotel. The “URBN Hotel” is located in a refurbished warehouse in Shanghai. The aim was to concentrate on how to create an energy efficient space as well as an ecological culture for the visitors and staff. The area displays different recycled materials and when looking at the picture below, you’ll know which ones I’m specifically referring to…suitcases! I love how they’re put together and exhibited. It also emphasizes the function of the building.
It doesn’t end there though; the hotel also has the intention of decreasing the green impact even more by including other sustainable approaches such as solar power.
