Sleep 2015 Student Pinterest Competition

Published on

Sleep, the hotel design show, sets out to inspire and engage
next generation of architects and
designers who will go on
to create exceptional hotel spaces

submission details can be found on the Sleep website.
The competition’s theme ties in with this year’s Sleep Set and Sleep
Bar (in Association with Sleeper), two hugely inspirational and popular
features which are created afresh each year at Sleep, challenging design
companies to create built spaces that push boundaries and explore new
