The Bayerischer Hof Hotel by Agence Jouin Manku is a contemporary translation of retro MOD principles. The Paris-based studio's streamlined design references nature and looks to its curves and colors for inspiration.

The 235 sq-m hotel is located in the heart of Munich, Germany and features elements that are curvilinear in their shape and wood-infused in their finish. The 60s themed space highlights natural wood elements that are a streamlined homage to Munich's surrounding forests and natural landscapes.

"The eccentric character of Munich’s traditional architecture is based on juxtaposition and austere exteriors that conceal a lavishly decorated interior." Instead of focusing on heavy ornamentation, the Bayerischer Hof Hotel lets its forms speak for themselves and chooses to showcase dynamic shape over decoration.
