AccorHotels launches mobile accommodation concept Flying Nest
AccorHotels’ Flying Nest is originally developed for mobile and sustainable accommodation, the concept could also be offered to a B-to-C target in 2019.
Due to the success of its pilot project, which was initially tested at various cultural, sporting and artistic events throughout France, the innovative Flying Nest concept is now entering the commercialization stage in the B-to-B market.
Flying Nest: mobile, designer and ephemeral hospitality
“Originally developed for a B-to-B clientele (event organizing agencies, exhibition organizers, festivals, events, corporate clients, AccorHotels partners, etc.), the Flying Nest concept could also be offered to a B-to-C target in 2019”, said Sébastien Dupic, New Business Senior Project Manager at AccorHotels.
A mobile and flexible accommodation concept
The Flying Nest accommodation solution uses converted marine containers, ensuring quick and easy transportation of the modules. To assemble the guestrooms and deliver this innovative concept in record time, AccorHotels has partnered with Capsa, a Lyon-based start-up specializing in the conversion of these modules.
Bold, modern design for comfort and connectivity
Ora-ïto, one of the most celebrated designers of his generation, has designed these mobile guestrooms. Created to offer a functional and pleasant experience, each island consists of six modules cladded with raw and natural materials and decked out with all the comfort of a hotel room (Sweet Bed by ibis bedding, private bathroom, air-conditioned living area and Wi-Fi connection).
