A Custom Radio for Ace Hotel Sydney

A Custom Radio for Ace Hotel Sydney

In May, Ace Hotel opened its first location in the Southern Hemisphere with Ace Hotel Sydney. Known for reimagining urban spaces for the people who make cities interesting, Ace Hotel Sydney focused on the building’s and area’s rich history when designing the 257-room hotel, in partnership with Flack Studio. 

The historical location in Surry Hills is the site of Australia’s earliest kiln discovery and this, with the rest of the neighborhood’s cultural significance, informed the design of the hotel and the rooftop restaurant and bar, Kiln. They also continue the tradition of Ace Hotels, making the Sydney location a communal place where all are welcome, and travelers and neighbors gather. Along with Kiln, the hotel features a lobby with a cocktail bar and generous sunken living lounge space open to the community, ground-floor neighborhood restaurant, LOAM, and Laneway cafe and bar, Good Chemistry. 

The welcoming doesn’t stop there. Influenced by arts, music, and culture, the guest rooms feature custom lighting to feel cozy and residential, a curated in-room vinyl collection, Rega turntables, D’Angelico guitars, and custom Tivoli Audio radios to match the unique feel of the hotel. 

“There could not be a more perfect hotel to partner with; just as we embody music and design in our products, they do as well with their rooms.”
- Paul DePasquale, Tivoli Audio CEO

With many of our products featured in Ace Hotels around the world, we were excited to partner with them to create a new custom radio for Ace Hotel Sydney. They had a few requirements — it had to have DAB+ and clock functionality, be unique but minimal, and needed to align with the design of their rooms. The custom radio we created for them was a new color combination for the Model One+, and along with being co-branded, features the simple message — turn me on.

“Where ACE really took the concept to be their own was coming up with their silkscreen. They could have easily just done their logo, but co-branding our names along with the simple message ‘Turn me on.’ was in line with their complimentary and positive messaging on many items in their room — for example, their hangers say ‘you look good in that.’”
- Paul DePasquale, Tivoli Audio CEO

We’re happy to be a part of this important milestone of Ace Hotel and we couldn’t ask for a more fitting partnership. To book a stay and check out the custom Model One+ for yourself visit
