Cross-genre collaboration is about more than quotes and realising one’s own design in a media-savvy way. Susanne Bisovsky’s collaborations range from the Salzburger Festspiele and Teatro alla Scala to external design orders. For many years, however, the theme of Hotel has been her overriding passion. . .
