Rove  Hotels  &  Mariska  Nell  present  the  Sustainability  Corner  during  Downtown  Design

Rove  Hotels  collaborate  with  Dubai-based  environmental  artist and  champion, Mariska  Nell  to  present  a  Sustainability  Corner  as  part  of  Downtown Design,  from  November  13th to  16th.  The installation  will  feature  her  upcycled  works,  some  of  which  have  been  created  using plastic bottles  collected  as  part of  Rove’s  ‘Check-in  with  Plastic;  Check-out  with  Dinner’promotion.  

Dubai,  UAE  (November  12,  2018):  In  an  effort  to  utilise  design  as  an  effective  platform  to  promote  sustainability,  and  as  result  of  its  hugely  successful,  ongoing  ‘Check-in  with  Plastic;  Check-out  with  Dinner’promotion  at  The  Daily  restaurants,  Rove  Hotels  has joined  forces  with  renowned  sustainability  advocate  and  artist,  Mariska  Nell.  The  collaboration  sees  the  artist  producing  a  unique,  environmentally  innovative  creation  –a  chair  made  from  the  plastic  bottles  collected  at  Rove  Hotels.  The  creative  piece,  along  with  her  other  artworks,  will  be  displayed  at  Rove’s  Sustainability  Corner  at  Rove  Downtown  during  Downtown  Design,  part  of  Dubai  Design  Week,  from  November  13thto  16th,  to  further  raise  awareness  of  the  impact  of  plastic  bottles  on  the  environment.  

Inspired  by  His  Highness  Sheikh  Mohammed  bin  Rashid  Al  Maktoum’s  vision  to  establish  sustainability  pillars  as  key  components  of  Dubai’s  sustainability  journey,  Rove  Hotels  recently  introduced  its  eco-community  project,  ‘Check-in  with  Plastic;  Check-out  with  Dinner’.  The  project  involves  Rovers  handing  in  their  plastic  bottles  and,  in  exchange,  receiving  dining  credits  at  The  Daily  restaurants.  The  plastic  bottles  are  sent  for  recycling and  upcycling  and,  so  far,  over  7,000 bottles  have  been  collected  as  part  of  the  initiative, a  figure  that  the  entire  Rove  team  is  extremely  encouraged  by,  as  it  highlights  the  community eagerness  and  proactivity  regarding  sustainability  for  a  greener  future.  Partnering  with  an environmental  champion  such  as  Mariska  Nell  has  strengthened  Rove’s  determination  to  advocate  positive  change  in  the  local community  even  more.            

South  African-born,  Dubai-based  artist  and  environmentalist,  Mariska  Nell  is  on  a  mission  to  turn  trash  into  treasure.  Nell’s  passion  for  creating  works  of  art  based  on  recycling  and  upcycling  began  after  she  cleaned  913  Nespresso  pods  and  turned  them  into  hundreds  of  flowers  for  her  CoffeeAddictionLamp.  This  inspired  her  to  produce  even  more  ‘Trash  to  Treasure’art  collections,  which  have  been  highly  sought  after  by  celebr
ities  such  as  Trevor  Noah,  Adrian  Genier  and  many  more.  Her  work  has  also  been  exhibitedin  numerous  galleries  around  the  world.      

Expressing  his  excitement  about  Rove’s  Downtown  Design  Week  collaboration  with  Mariska  Nell,  Paul  Bridger,  Corporate  Director  of  Operations  at  Rove  Hotels,  stated,  “Everyone  here at  Rove  Hotels  is  extremely  proud  of  the  massively  positive  response  from  Rovers  to  the  ‘Check-in  with  Plastic;  Check-out  with  Dinner’promotion.  Teaming  up  with  such  an inspirational  and extremely  talented  environmental  artist  like  Mariska  Nell  shows  the community  what  can  be  achieved  when  we  make  a  collective  effort  towards  achieving sustainability.  We  invite  everyone to  visit  the  Sustainability  Corner,  learn  more  and  get  involved  in  initiatives  that  aim  to  protect  our  environment.”

The  Rove  Sustainability  Corner  by  Mariska  Nell  will  be  on  display  at  Rove  Downtown  during Downtown  Design  from  November  13th to  16th.
