Hotel lobbies are the first sight that greet a guest when they arrive for their stay, so striking the right chord and creating that all important good first impression is vital here, explains Ben Bryden, Sales and Marketing Director at RAK Ceramics UK…
Creating a good first impression, even when floor space may be at a premium, is crucial and whatever design and embellishments are chosen also needs to be in line with the hotel’s brand values, which from lobby to guest rooms will echo throughout the building no doubt.
Surfaces offer the ideal solution in this regard, being in and of themselves already highly visible.
Proving itself to be a stunning centrepiece for any hotel design concept, Luce by RAK Ceramics simply amaze when enhanced with backlighting technology, creating a striking effect that makes the right impression not only in hotel lobbies, but bar and restaurant areas too.
The new Maximus Translucent extra-large format slabs are a novelty that inspire creativity, with the range including seven different graphics and colours in marble and onyx effect, that replicate the natural ability of the stones to filter the light. The translucent body of Luce is made with a very high purity of raw materials containing special and high-quality clays and minerals. When illuminated, Luce’s special body gives a soft glow and really transforms the design from a plain tile to a soft natural marble. This of course taps into trends for nature-inspired designs, creates a real feeling of luxury and plays with light in an incredibly creative way.
In 6mm thick slabs measuring 120 x 260cm, Luce can be chosen in Onyx White, Onyx Harlequin, Onyx Ivory, Onyx Arco Red, Onyx Green Jade, Marble White and Bahia Azul.
Such solutions can be used by designers to enhance the guest experience, giving a good first impression and creating spaces that are beautiful with quality products.
