INK hotel Amsterdam combines the city’s unique local flair with the needs of the modern urban traveller.
A place that caters to travellers who want to define their own time, and identify themselves with the urban context of the
hotel, the history of the building and the city in which they are staying.
The hotel is situated in the heart of Amsterdam, a few minutes walking distance from Dam Square. It consists of a
conglomeration of historic buildings along the main street with its main anchor being the former newspaper head office
and print shop of ‘De Tijd’ (‘the times’ in English). A place where stories were written in the same building as they were
printed forms the foundation on which INK hotel Amsterdam, including its restaurant The PRESSROOM, has been built.
INK hotel Amsterdam, a place where new stories are yet to be written...
Concrete blurs the boundaries between inside and outside by pulling the street into the building through a series of mayor
architectural modifications. concrete widened the entrance and inserted a new alley that connects the different buildings
and patios, invites in light as well as people and provides insight into the public spaces. The goal on the ground floor is to
create a mix of locals and hotel guests as they share the restaurant and bar.
All public functions are allocated to the ground floor, from where guests can find the vertical connection to the hotel rooms
on the floors above.
The INK Hotel Amsterdam is a bohemian lifestyle hotel located in the heart of the city and where design is everywhere. The INK owes its name to the rich history of the building as was the former home of the Dutch newspaper ‘De Tijd’. Concrete Architectural Associates designed the interior of the hotel, which combines the City’s unique local flair with the needs of the modern urban travellers.
The ‘Duke of Windsor’ bar is one of this spaces in which we can find good design from international brands. Among them we can find ENEA with its elegant Lottus barstools (4 legs and black polypropylene backrest).
A series of barstools, designed by Lievore Altherr Molina, composed of one-piece, seat and backrest, injected polypropylene shells with the possibility of combining colours and plastic or textile finishes. All mounted on different metallic lacquered, chrome or stainless steel tube structures.
The polypropylene shells can be one-colour or combined with a polypropylene or upholstered round seat panel; while the bases are available in 3 different formats: 4 swivel legs, swivel central base with square foot, or fixed sledge foot, those last two comes in 2 heights, 977mm or 877mm. In 2013 Enea introduces the Lottus barstool in wood structure.

It is a place for travellers that want to define their own time and identify themselves with the context of the hotel and the history of the building.
