Fedrigoni’s Hotel book is a combination of great design and great paper. It showcases what designers can do with paper — specifically the client’s “fine Italian papers” — to wow guests staying in hotels. Thomas Manss & Company has won the coveted Red Dot Award for communication design for their outstanding work on this project; no doubt, quite an achievement requiring a great attention to detail for every page.

The book is a showcase of 50 different papers that can be used to create 50 different things you usually find in a hotel. The piece targets hoteliers and design agencies. Every page is different: a different paper, a different weight or embossing or colour and often a different printing technique.

To create that elusive home-away-from-home feeling, hotels go to great lengths to indulge their guests: from the lavish brochure to a personal note on arrival, from restaurant menus to shampoo packaging, every impression counts.

It is surprising how many of these little treats are made from paper. It is not at all surprising that many of them miraculously have made it into your luggage when returning home after a luxurious stay away. We have collected all the cherished items that frequently ‘go walking’ in a limited edition book for the Italian paper manufacturer Fedrigoni.
