Bathroom manufacturer Geberit has launched its latest Hotel Guest Experience Report for 2022, working in collaboration with some of the UK’s leading architects and design pioneers.  The publication, now in its second year, explores the challenges and opportunities facing hotels today and is a must read for anyone designing hotels for the future.

In the first chapter, Sensory designer and Founder of Arigami, Ari Peralta, who will be unveiling an installation at MEET UP London around colour, explores the importance of human wellness in hospitality design, looking at the role of smart technology in amplifying positive guest experiences.

The report also features insight from architect Cecilia Vodret, Head of Interior for Speri design’s London office who examines how hotels can make the best possible use of every space available to boost both revenue and guest wellbeing.

Balkaran Bassan, Senior Designer at Areen Design, who worked with Hotel Designs last year on the WFHotel installation at HIX, predicts in the report that we will increasingly be combining the individual user experience with an emphasis on wellbeing. Balkaran details how hotel guests will expect thoughtful experiences and solutions that allow them to detach from the stress of travel and find their home away from home.

Finally, Sound Architect Tom Middleton, who will be creating a soundscape at MEET UP London, looks at the growing importance of the bathroom and why it can no longer remain just a transactional and transitory space for guests. Tom discusses how hoteliers now have a social responsibility to design a ‘temple of tranquility’ with empathy and how the sector can support the real human challenges of our life navigating a new normal.
