After a successful test, AccorHotels unveils its new concept for B-to-B market. Called Flying Nest, this new concept has used mobile and flexible accommodation that features innovation and sustainability that lines up well with AccorHotel’s approach to the future of the hospitality business.
This project is part of the group’s strategy to live “unique hospitality experiences during outstanding events and to meet accommodation needs where hotel capacity is at saturation point.”
AccorHotels has partnered with the Lyon-based Capsa, which converts the shipping containers to rooms and work on the transformation and easy to transfer modules while the designer Ora-ïto signed the design of the mobile rooms. Created to offer functional and pleasant experience, each island composed of 6 modules has been thought out with all the comfort of a hotel room — Sweet Bed by ibis bedding, private bathroom, air-conditioned living area and Wi-Fi connection). As part of a sustainable approach they have considered materials used, ecological equipment, operation of modules using green energy, among others.
Designed primarily for B-to-B clients such as event organizing agencies, corporate clients, festivals, events, etc. the Flying Nest concept could be offered to B-to-C markets in 2019.
