“Hip Pop Britannia” lifestyle room concept by Henry Chebaane at The Megaro

SEEN is delighted to hear that there is a “Hip Pop Britannia” lifestyle room concept launching in The Megaro, the colourful and eccentric boutique hotel in King’s Cross, known by some for having the largest graffiti mural in London, spread over 450 square metres of a classic 19th century facade.

Henry Chebaane, the renowned British artist, designer and creative director of Blue Sky Hospitality is progressively shaping this entire hotel into a lifestyle destination like no other in London.

Following the recent opening of Minimix, the extravagant lobby mini-bar, he has now transformed three prominent corner studios into rockstar accommodation.

Chebaane has created an intensively atmospheric residential environment that makes extensive use of the Diesel Living furniture and lighting range, combined with industrial Anglepoise lamps and superlative sound systems from Jarre technologies. The interiors’ schemes also feature his own quirky artistic compositions printed on metal boards and soft cushions, using local cultural icons from the British Bulldog to Harry Potter’s owl, revisited with humour and a dash of rock and roll.

Each generously sized studio has plenty of daylight with direct views over St Pancras station. The individual colour schemes are inspired by the youth fashions of nearby Camden, with names like Scarlet Punk, Plum Rock and Toffee Techno. The walls are textured like graphite and raw concrete, floors are laid with a special 3D carpet evoking burnt rubber on asphalt, while the ceilings are covered with metallic splashes of paint reminiscent of Andy Warhol’s silver factory. The sleek bathrooms have a warm industrial loft feel with corten metal flooring, polished concrete walls and dichroic lighting.

SEEN is naturally longing to have a look for herself. Meanwhile, we shall have to make do with the photos…
