Swiss bathroom specialist Laufen collaborated with design practice ICA on the stunning bathrooms for two luxury boutique hotels.

Hotel specialists ICA were tasked with specifying the bathroom products for the luxury en-suites of two stunning hotels that are part of the Perle Hotel group; a unique collection of hotels for the discerning traveller. They chose Laufen as the brand to help create their vision for the bathrooms.

Both hotels are located along the beautiful Scottish coastline, with décor inspired by the breath-taking scenery. They are designed to offer a place for retreat and to experience luxury.

The Marmalade Hotel

Marmalade is a new luxury hotel, near the picturesque town of Portree in the Isle of Skye – ‘designed for comfort and built for pleasure’. The décor of its 11-bedrooms features a warm and natural palette of materials, that have been used alongside elements of contemporary glamour to attract a wide range of travellers.

The Perle Hotel, Oban

Perle Oban is a luxury Scottish hotel located in the heart of Oban, surrounded by breath-taking views of the Highlands and Harbour. A breath of fresh air, oozing tranquillity and elegance throughout – the design approach is inspired by the local environment, with a palette reminiscent of the surrounding water and waves.

The Brief

ICA approached Laufen with the brief for the bathrooms in both hotels which were to be an integral part of the project. Associate Director Dawn Campbell explains:

“We were looking for elegant bathroom products with a contemporary design aesthetic, with the design functionality of a classic wash basin and WC. We required high quality sanitary ware products that would fit seamlessly with our vision for the overall bathroom designs to create a stylish and luxurious result.”

Laufen’s deep knowledge of bathroom products enabled the team to provide authentic and customised solutions that go above and beyond expectation.

The Specification

Laufen provided 11 INO wash basins for Perle Hotel, Oban and 58 for Marmalade Hotel. With INO’s simple lines creating an elegant and inviting design, the counter-top basins provide a simple yet sophisticated appearance. The basins for the bathrooms within the two hotels consisted of several sizes including, 500 x 360mm within the Perle Oban Hotel and 500x350mm, 350x350mm and 350x365mm, to fit the exacting specifications of the design of the bathrooms at Marmalade Hotel.

WC’s from Laufen’s Italian designed Palomba collection were also installed in the two hotels. Recalling pebbles shaped by the eternal movements of the sea, the collection is the perfect match for both hotels.

Greig Denham, Specification Manager for Laufen in Scotland commented;

“The Laufen products look simply stunning in the setting of these two beautiful hotels. We are delighted to have been chosen for this project and feel that Laufen’s heritage of iconic design and timeless innovation make it an ideal fit. Laufen has a reputation for its work in some of the world’s most prestigious hospitality projects and we were delighted to be able to utilise our expertise in collaboration with ICA, in these stunning Scottish hotels.”

The spaces now welcome hotel guests to a relaxing bathing environment with elements inspired by the surrounding breath-taking landscapes, beautiful coastlines, and the picturesque towns.
