Niu Loco Munich

In the series of niu hotels, we have designed the interior for 'niu Loco', a sparkling hotel in the German city of Munich. Just like the other niu hotels, the stimulation of senses and the location of the hotel played a key role in the design process.

The environment of the hotel has been an important area in history for the construction of the Maffei locomotives. With these facts as a start, we have further developed the concept, giving the locomotive a contemporary counterpart: a 'loco' (literally: crazy) vibe.

The look and feel of this hotel certainly lives up to its name. Glittering disco balls, the frequent use of popping pink and velvety surfaces make this hotel a true eyecatcher, while the brass accents and artwork are a nod to the glory days of the locomotive industry.

The design of the rooms and public spaces is a party in itself. However, the soft and comfortable materials give the hotel a friendly character, making guests feel right at home in niu Loco.

Niu Loco will open its doors in 2020.
