As much of a barometer of design as its successful predecessors, Night Fever 5 is a global overview of the prevailing trends in hospitality design. The luxurious volume consists of three chapters; the first covers bars and clubs, the second features restaurants, and the third is devoted to hotel interiors. This book offers readers 130 fresh and exciting projects featured on a total of 600 pages. Interiors are featured on 2 to 8 pages that are filled with photos, drawings, sketches, floor plans and of course a description of the design. For each project the text explains how the designers fulfilled their client's wishes, how they incorporated the client's identity, how the concept developed, what materials were used and how the design was executed. Projects are selected based on their original concept, creativity, innovative approach or the project's unmistakable wow-factor. An extensive index at the back of the book describes each featured design studio including their contact details and the addresses of each venue they have designed.
