Playing at work

Mathieu Lehanneur has designed a "business playground" for Pullman London St Pancras.

Mathieu Lehanneur’s “business playground” room for Pullman Hotels and Resorts caters for cosmopolitan, mobile, hyper-connected travellers.

With the aim to reinvent formal meeting spaces, French designer Lehanneur has reflected the brand’s “work hard, play hard” motto. Combining performance and pleasure with a fresh take on traditional aspects of a meeting, Lehanneur designed a meeting table that resembles a poker table, a private area for informal conversations or breaks, and a cabinet of curiosities. All these features are designed to stimulate creativity and reinvent international hospitality codes.

The "business playground" room is a far cry from conventional formal meeting rooms and disrupts the codes of business with style by focusing on defining elements and furniture created specifically for Pullman.

The Pullman London St Pancras will premier the "business playground" room from November 2013 before it is gradually rolled out across the network in 2014.
