Olivia Steel

We developed a series of carpet designs for the Moxy Hotel that tell a unique story about the Mascot and Botany Bay area.

Hotel company Corval approached Art Pharmacy to source a local emerging artist develop a series of artworks that would be turned into carpets for the hotel corridors and guest rooms. Emerging artist Olivia Steel was selected for her organic minimalistic line work and clever use of paired back colour schemes. Olivia's artworks tell the story of Mascot and Botany, with each line representing layers of meaning throughout her work.

The corridor design is inspired by the aerial views of the Airport runway and noise contours of the planes approaching and departing Mascot. The larger guest room carpet is an abstract interpretation of the native Australian Waratah, and the bold colour of mustard was picked up through Mascot's shipping industry. The smaller guest room carpet is inspired by the nearby water at Botany Bay. The topographical approach and colour palette similarly reflects the surrounding buildings surrounding the Hotel location.

We worked closely with the international Corval team to brief Olivia and guide her through the development of concepts that were strongly tied to the location and brand story of the hotel. The Moxy Hotel will begin construction in early 2021, and the carpet designs will be installed in 2022.
