How can designers for the hospitality sector ensure their projects meet all the key criteria from sophisticated elegance to reliable performance? Selected by Two’s Company Interior Design for their ‘Hotel Room of the Future’ set at The Independent Hotel Show 2018, Corian® Solid Surface demonstrates why it is perfectly suited to high-impact hospitality design.
Particular qualities set Corian® apart as the ideal answer to pristine ‘wet-areas’ from food and beverage service to spa facilities and washrooms. Completely homogenous, non-porous and straightforward to maintain, Corian® can eliminate the need for grout and visible seals that could become vulnerable to mould and mildew. Sleek, hygienic and stain-resistant, the material is robust and durable, but can be restored to full beauty should any damage occur.
The Hotel Room of the Future at The Independent Hotel Show:
For the ‘Hotel Room of The Future’ concept, interior designers Nicholas Sunderland and Gilly Craft of Two’s Company have chosen leading brands and specialists in their field to help create a unique and beautiful space. “Creating a room with 21st century technology, luxury, comfort and outstanding service, as well as seamless interaction with front of house and housekeeping, are the challenges of today’s hotelier,” says Two’s Company. “Technology is important but should not be invasive or difficult to use. It should be intelligent and responsive, seamlessly integrated into the room. In addition, the guest requires comfort, elegance and a style that is unique and individual. Our choices to convey this are carefully chosen and researched to create a room with outstanding products and service.”
In the Two’s company set, the en-suite bathroom walls will be formed from Corian® in luxurious Grey Onyx, a highly popular new shade which offers a rich, swirling veined effect, and which will be backlit to make the most of material’s ethereal translucency. The bedside shelves will also be made from Corian® and will feature wireless Corian® Charging Surface technology, which enables smart devices to be powered up directly through the table top.
