Pantone rooms, giant typewriters in boutique hotel

Singapore has a growing boutique hotel scene, and the 29-room Wanderlust, which it describes on its site as a “left-field and totally experimental boutique hotel set to draw madcap voyagers and curious travellers”, is pretty cool. It is designed by three design firms and one architectural firm, meaning every one of its four floors basks in a totally different designer palette from the next one.  

The base level by Asylum, where the hotel lobby and a French restaurant is, goes for industrial glam with lots of oxidised steel and wood surfaces, while :phunk Studio’s rooms on level 2 (my favourite) soak up Pantone colours — even the in-room neon signs light up appropriately-hued song titles like ‘Purple Haze’ and ‘Red Light’. On the third floor, DP Architects’ black and white rooms are classy monotone works, while fFurious’ fantastical universe of giant typewriters, trees, monsters and space shuttles stake out the rooms on the top floor.
