In the second edition of Hotel Designs LIVE, sponsored by Technological Innovations Group in association with Crestron, editor Hamish Kilburn returned to host a number of panel discussions and interviews with the aim to keep the conversation and the industry connected.
Following on from the inaugural Hotel Designs LIVE where an expert panel questioned the very existence of lobbies in the wake of Covid-19, Hotel Designs was back to put public areas back under the spotlight.
To move away from pure sterile solutions and to instead inject design and character back into public areas, Kilburn invited internationally acclaimed designers and hotel figures, such as Constantina Tsoutsikou, founder of Studio LOST; Erica Pritchard, Associate at HBA; Eric Jafari, CDO of Locke, Erik Nissen Johansen, Founder of Stylt, onto the virtual Hotel Designs LIVE sofa.
The panel discussion, which was sponsored by Falcon Contract Flooring, started with Kilburn asking how the industry can authentically create purposeful areas that evoke interesting first impressions.
Here’s the full panel discussion.
