Tribute Portfolio Introduces Charming New Hotel to Savannah’s Historic Waterfront with The Alida
Now open – 173 Rooms
To celebrate the recent addition to the brand’s growing roster, Tribute Portfolio is continuing its collaboration with global color authority Pantone and bringing the second installation of The Pantone Pantry by Tribute Portfolioto Savannah for a limited time. This immersive pop-up experience first debuted at The Royal Palm South Beach Miami during Art Basel Miami in December 2018 and revealed the 2019 Pantone Color of the Year: PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral.
Located on The Alida Hotel’s pool deck and open to the public Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., the pantry will embody the playful personality of Tribute Portfolio with multi-sensory moments that serve as an interactive tribute to how color – like travel – can reframe your perspective and illuminate the attributes of the destination you are visiting. Curiosity cabinets feature artsy objects that turn travel essentials on their head, from passport holders, luggage tags, travel books, cocktail bar set, sunglasses, headphones, sleep masks, compass, and more.
Taking travelers and locals on a whimsical journey of color and captivating design, the Savannah-based pantry is bathed in the custom color palette created by Pantone inspired by the destination of Savannah and The Alida within it.
Connecting with the surrounding design community on a deeper level, Tribute Portfolio and The Alida joined forces with the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD), which is celebrating a momentous 40th anniversary this year. Notable alumni artists Juliana Lupacchino, Jocelyn Desisto, Will Penny, Amiri Farris and Paige Russell representing SCAD’s top ranked degree programs including painting, illustration jewelry, and accessory design, contributed to the Pantone Pantry, bringing the destination to life within the installation. A hidden door within the Pantone Pantry will lead guests to a back room which will be transformed into an immersive environment of animations made from 3D scans taken around Savannah. The scans will be textured utilizing the Savannah palette and mirrored geometric panels will reflect the projections and allow consumers to see themselves in the color and light.
For a limited time, Keep Shop, The Alida’s 24-hour emporium known for showcasing hand-selected finds from local artisans, will feature an exclusive capsule collection of items in the custom Pantone color palette, including items designed by SCAD alumni artists, Pantone products and other goods that celebrate The Alida’s hometown of Savannah. Merchandise will be available for purchase until supplies last. In addition, Keep Shop features ELOI scarves and towels which feature a custom pattern that also adorns the pillows in the hotel’s guest rooms, designed by alumni artist Paige Russell exclusively for The Alida.
The Pantone Pantry by Tribute Portfolio will make its final stop at The Slaak Rotterdam, a new Tribute Portfolio Hotel opening soon in the Netherlands. Following the restoration and renovation of its storied building – once the printing house of the Het Vrije Volk newspaper and then a studio space for artists – the intimate and inventive 74-room hotel reflects the dynamic metropolis of Rotterdam.
