Gotta love the kitschness of the new TWA Hotel rooms.
Designed by New York City firm Stonehill Taylor, they boast Knoll furniture, rotary phones, special TWA toiletries, and custom-built not-so-mini bars stocked with Moët & Chandon Imperial Brut Champagne, Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège Cognac and Belvedere Vodka (can of Tab not included).
Plus a view onto JFK’s runways and the historic TWA Flight Centre. Note: earplugs not necessary, the hotel’s noise-cancelling windows are the second-thickest in the world after the glass wall at the U.S. Embassy in London — seven panes and 4½ inches thick.
The quarter-billion-dollar fit-out is a faithful homage to Eero Saarinen’s original 1962 building and has no right-angles throughout. Mind blown!
Fellow design geeks, watch this vid for the deets…
