UK design studio takes vegan lifestyle from the kitchen to the hotel suite
London-based design studio Bompas & Parr has created a completely plant-based hotel suite in London, reportedly a world first. The Hilton London Bankside suite, which runs around £500 a night, is entirely vegan, from bedding to mini-bar. The studio sought advice from UK’s Vegan Society to create a 100 percent vegan-friendly experience.
It starts at check-in where guests are ushered into a special area, which includes vegan-friendly furniture. Rooms are furnished with leather-like furniture, created with Pinatex, a natural textile made from pineapple leaf fibre. Pillows are stuffed with buckwheat or quinoa instead of feathers. The flooring is made from a sustainable type of bamboo. Even the paint and the cleaning supplies used in rooms are vegan, and of course guests can order from an all-vegan menu.
The room welcomed its first guests in January 2019.
