DESIGNERS SELECT Hospitality Designers highlight a range of favorite new products for hospitality interiors Glen Coben Grohe: Rainshower Next Generation Icon Reader Service No. 210 Interface Hospitality: Human Nature Reader Service No. 211 Architectural Systems, Inc.: Aegean Eco-Porcelain Reader Service No. 212 Principal and Founder Glen & Company New York "This hand shower delivers great pressure, comes in a range of colors, and looks fantastic. It is ideal for projects in which space is limited-especially those in New York City, for example-because it allows the user to avoid an unwelcome spray of cold water." "These skinny planks work as a system to create a tactile and organic floor plane. Finally, someone has figured out how to assemble a high-quality product that gives us design flexibility and can be replaced simply and easily." "It feels strange to specify porcelain tiles for public spaces in luxurious hotels, but the facts don't lie: Eco-Porcelain tiles are thin, strong, and consistent in size and come in a range of repeatable colors, patterns, and textures. This material can't be found in nature, but sometimes our projects demand predictable beauty." Emily Marshall, IIDA Sandler Seating: AKI 2.0 Reader Service No. 213 Gustavo Godoy Leatherworks: Honeycomb Reader Service No. 214 Elitis: Nymphe Reader Service No. 215 Associate Hnedak Bobo Group Memphis, Tennessee "I love the clean lines and the midcentury- and Scandinavian-inspired design of this chair, which is part of the Groove Collection. I could imagine it in a cafe or three-meal restaurant to create a modern aesthetic." "This hair-on-hide carpet runner's muted tones, soft texture, and honeycomb patterning exude luxury. It belongs in a high-end space like a penthouse suite." "This textile's large-scale pattern looks like a Victorian-inspired still life, and it is ideal for a focal wall or window where artwork or a pop of color would be desired." Brooke Taylor Palecek: Giselle Petrified Wood Coff ee Table Reader Service No. 216 Feiss: Audrie Collection Reader Service No. 217 Clé: Watermark Reader Service No. 218 Director of Interiors Arcsine Oakland, California "Palecek has always excelled at incorporating natural materials into products for contract use, and recent releases are particularly sophisticated and modern. The geometry and materiality of the Giselle table is really compelling and warm." 106 "I appreciate how creative Feiss is getting with decorative LED lighting, particularly the Audrie Collection. It has a very elegant and residential aesthetic, yet is Title 24 friendly." "This gold verdigris dip tile is a beautiful material: luxe and handcrafted, yet serene. It hits many current trends-gold metallic, watercolor, handcrafted-without feeling overly trendy." APRIL 2015
