THE STANDARD, HOLLYWOOD
The transformation of the pool area at The Standard, Hollywood casts the odd forms of exotic desert and subtropical plants as co-conspirators in the wildly artificial environment that the hotel is famous for. The expressive silhouettes of the vegetation create a sculptural and otherworldly backdrop to the vibrant social atmosphere at the pool, day and night. Simple white plant containers associate themselves with the stark and geometric hotel architecture, while islands of plant material blend into the urban landscape beyond. Together, these strategies connect and expand the pool area to its surrounding Hollywood context.
The custom tabletop vessels, closed rotational forms, play off of the iconic undulating hotel structure. A capsule collection of furniture by sister company, Plain Air inhabits the hotel balconies and patios.
