Everyone knows that Cornell’s School of Hotel Administration churns out many industry leaders. So when its learning laboratory hotel, the Statler, needed a guestroom renovation that was consistent with its quality of education, the school turned to an active alum and frequent collaborator, Raj Chandnani, vice president, strategy for WATG. “Although the property has been well maintained over the course of the past 20 years, the administration and alumni recognized that the property was long overdue for an ambitious guestroom refurbishment to develop a new vision for the guestrooms that re ects the school’s market position as an innovative leader,” he explains. With that in mind, the WATG team employed photographic elements and colors that re ect the university (a neutral palette with pops of the school’s of cial hue, carnelian red), mixed with eco-friendly materials and the latest in technology for a “contemporary, comforting environment.” To do this, Chandnani got a little help from his industry friends—WATG and Benjamin West collaborated with 30 vendors on the project, some donating at reduced prices or even gratis. “It was an interesting process to educate the design community about the school and its in uence within the hospitality industry,” he says, adding that its clientele includes global leaders in government, hospitality, business, and academia.

To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the Kohler Waters Spa decided to give itself a makeover. The spa, part of the Destination Kohler experience in Kohler, Wisconsin, now boasts renovated signature rooms, all of which focus on the healing properties of water and are aptly named Harmony, Acoustic, and Riverbath. “After 10 years, Kohler has so many new offerings that once again we felt like we needed to showcase the latest and the greatest,” says Jean Kolb, director, wellness business and product development. Spa-goers get to test out products like the Kohler Ambient Rain with chromatherapy and Flipside Handshower found in the Riverbath room; the Kohler Fountainhead VibrAcoustic Bath in the Acoustic room, which uses a mix of color therapy and sound vibrations to put guests in a relaxing mood; and the modern and high-tech Kohler Custom Vichy Shower in the Harmony and Acoustic rooms. A simple and timeless design concept from Kohler’s interior design department is found in each of the four rooms to play up the new products while still maintaining a serene environment: clean lines, indirect lighting, and soft hues of white and green found on tile and wallcoverings. And guests will have a handson experience in-and-out of the spa with a walkthrough of the showroom at the Kohler Design Center. “It’s similar to buying a car,” she says. “You want to take it for a test drive before you buy. We test drive plumbing products!”

High-end interior design in just 72 hours? That’s what designer Tui Pranich and entrepreneur Jason Atkins promise with the launch of Tui Lifestyle, six turnkey packages comprising of furniture, accessories, and amenities. “The highlight of all the packages is to try to create a design that is comfortable, elegant, and always in style,” Pranich says. It seems more like a residential application, but the duo already furnished model rooms for such condo-hotels as the Viceroy Icon and the Marquis RockResort, and they are in negotiations to handle all the furniture for a 300-room hotel in Miami. “We enable hotels to control and limit their cash flow by buying furniture for the hotel rooms on a need basis rather than the traditional purchasing company, which requires hotel owners to buy the entire hotel in one purchase,” explains Atkins.
