Jo Littlefair, who won Interior Designer of the Year 2019 at the Brit List Awards, is the co-founder of Goddard Littlefair, a design studio that is unquestionably at the forefront of the hospitality design industry. Taking time out from her daily mission to deliberately challenge the perception of luxury in interior design, she joined editor Hamish Kilburn and co-host Harriet Forde – practically due to a Covid-19 curveball – to discuss the ever-changing luxury hotel industry in 2022 and beyond.

Drawing inspiration from his studio travels and sharing his passion for exciting new dining, living and hospitality experiences, Littlefair’s inquisitive and observant nature allows him to recognize emerging shifts in consumer trends, industry and design.

Having recently completed projects such as Villa Copenhagen, The Curtain – At The Mondrian Shoreditch and The Mayfair Townhouse – while currently working on, among other things, the interior design project inside the Mandarin Oriental in Vienna and the spa Inside the first Raffles hotel in London, Littlefair and its team house the skills (and passion) to create meaningful sound and intuitive impact in hotel design and hospitality.

So, let’s meet okay?

DESIGN POD, second series, is sponsored by Minotti London. In the next episode, Kilburn and Forde chat with Ed Murray, partner at Dexter Moren Associates, to explore fluid and limitless architecture.
