EXHIBITION: HD BOUTIQUE Highlights from HD Boutique An intimate setting plays host to one-of-a-kind products and motivating conference sessions A clean profile and attractive curves define the Lena Chair from the Grand Rapids Chair Company. The sleek seat and back are formed from 11 layers of beech wood veneer, and can be finished in a natural lighter hue or stained black. Detailing shines through in the exposed wooden butt joints and adjoining pegs. Reader Service No. 240 Betona’s Flexible Concrete Tile is a pliant, lightweight surfacing material made of 50 percent post-consumer glass from fluorescent lighting tubes. Curing is done at room temperature and foregoes the use of kilns for an incredibly low-energy production process. Tiles can be produced to appear like wood grain, ceramic, stone, or concrete and colors, textures, and patterns can be customized at any order size. Reader Service No. 241 Approximately 4,000 hospitality designers, architects, property owners and operators, developers, and specifiers converged on the Miami Beach Convention Center in September for Hospitality Design (HD) Boutique. Presented on a more intimate scale than its sister show, HD Expo (to be held in Las Vegas May 15–17, 2013), HD Boutique 2012 offered attendees networking opportunities and an in-depth look at products from more than 500 exhibitors including furniture, lighting, textiles, and flooring, a handful of which are covered in these pages. For the 2012 keynote conversation, Hospitality Design Editor in Chief Michael Adams interviewed celebrated designer Alexandra Champalimaud, who has recently been in the spotlight for her renovation of New York’s Waldorf=Astoria. The project was part of the 28 presentation, along with topics on the importance of education in design and the changing definition of luxury. (Read more on Hospitality Design’s Wave of the Future designers—young but accomplished visionaries—were honored: Alan Barr, CHADA Asia; Ave Bradley, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants; Andrew Cohen and Jeremy Levitt, Parts and Labor Design; Oliver John Palmer Michell, UXUS; Tim Mutton and Jo Sampson, Blacksheep (featured in Contract, April 2012); and Foreman Rogers, tvsdesign. The show returns to Miami Beach as HD Americas, with a focus on Latin America and the Caribbean, September 25–26, 2013. —EMILY HOOPER OctOber 2012
