JOI-Design creates interiors of Germany’s first Capri by Fraser

Capri br Fraser opened a new apartment hotel in Frankfurt’s district of Europaviertel (European quarter). Involved in the design of the Capri by Fraser Frankfurt was JOI-Design.

The property – which has 153 studio and one-bedroom apartments – has a color palette of gray and white with hints of citrus. A nod to the traditional tailoring of business attire is evoked in the furnishings and upholstery, using houndstooth and pinstripe patterns, seamed leatherwork and stitching. A round area rug has abstract floral motifs, giving the place a residential feel.

The studios are tech-enabled with numerous electrical charge points. They also have a kitchen.

The lobby is an open space, designed to reflect a living room. There is a communal workstation. Bookshelves double as room dividers to break up the space into intimate-seeming nooks.

For dining, Caprilicious restaurant has a range of seating from smaller intimate tables, to larger areas for gatherings. It has seating with low and high backs, a long table with an assortment of chairs and a self-service bar for tableware. Meanwhile, Drinx bar has bespoke wallcovering with an abstract monochromatic pattern, a leather-lined bar and assorted seating. There is also a “constellation” of pendant lights stretched across the ceiling. The color palette here is a mixture of blues, grays and blacks, with bursts of accent colors in the throw cushions and tinted glass cocktail tables.

A conference space and fitness room is also available for guests of Capri by Fraser Franfurt.
