Montreal-based designer Charles Godbout has partnered with furniture Recommended Supplier Protocol to create Airwave for hotel communal areas…
As a sector that is always having to be ahead of the hotel consumer curve – sometimes as much as five years ahead – the contract furniture market continues to push design boundaries in order to balance ergonomic design with style.
Meanwhile, designers look towards the leading suppliers in this sector to establish which products and models will suit the modern hotel lobby.
Cue the launch of Airwave by Protocol, which is an exciting new modular seating solution that has been designed in collaboration with award-winning interior designer Charles Godbout. AirWave’s design embraces the balance between style, comfort and versatility and can be configured for use in all contract environments including hotel lobbies, corporate offices, universities and even airport lounges.
“The backs and sides of the high and low models combine to create various patterns of sinusoidal curves.”
The seating range starts with simple ottomans and benches that can be arranged in a linear or curved series, followed by endless possible configurations of single and double seats. The backs and sides of the high and low models combine to create various patterns of sinusoidal curves, allowing you to optimise the floor space, creating either communal or private environments.
The option to include wireless mobile charging, USB-A, USB-C and UKF sockets brings this solution to the forefront of power-enabled seating.
The AirWave models can be customised in several different fabric options and it can be upholstered in co-ordinating or contrasting colours to suit each designer’s scheme.
