Colourful wall mural resembles skyline of London

Wallpaper: Wallsauce launches new antimicrobial and antibacterial range

800 533 Hamish Kilburn

The wallpaper company launches new ranges of vibrant wallpapers that won’t breed harmful bacteria…

The cleanliness of hotels has long been debated over the years. In 2016, a report by Direct365 showed that 80 per cent of Brits would leave a hotel if it didn’t meet their hygiene and cleanliness expectations.

It is perhaps this statistic that led Wallsauce to launch an antibacterial and antimicrobial wallpaper for the hospitality sector. Designed for vulnerable environments, the material used in the products has been coated with a special formula that has been rigorously tested to ensure bacteria, mould and mildew won’t breed.

Grey wall mural reflects sound speakers on the wall

The wallpaper is available with any design presented at Wallsauce, including its ‘upload your own image’ feature. This allows hotels and restaurants to adorn blank walls with fresh and colourful imagery that will leave a lasting impression on customers whilst preventing the growth of micro-organisms.

Calligaris to showcase latest products at Clerkenwell Design Week

492 267 Hamish Kilburn

In celebration of its 95th anniversary this year, family-run Italian furniture company Calligaris will showcase a series of its latest contract pieces at Clerkenwell Design Week.

Clerkenwell Design Week display includes the decadently glamorous Coco Chair, inspired by 1950s design with its elegant silhouette and simple metal structure, luxuriously upholstered with padded fabrics or leathers. The Love Seating Range is another nod to the fifties era in a rich earthy colour palette of charcoals and terracottas. The bodies of the pieces are ‘suspended’, sitting neatly within the unique metal frame’s extended legs.

Also on display will be the bestselling Fifties and Igloo that are synonymous with the customisable element of Calligaris’ furniture, giving the customer the freedom to mix and match shapes, textures and materials to create individual looks for commercial spaces.

With a similar retro style, the Gala Chair pairs a chic metallic frame with luxurious velvet upholstery in a series of vintage shades including blush pink and dusky blue.

The Calligaris Contract range was founded in 2008, developing furniture for hotels and restaurants. Its customisable element is key, giving the freedom to mix and match shapes textures and materials to create individual pieces designed to bring the luxuries of the home to the contract market.

Hotel Designs editor Hamish Kilburn will be at Clerkenwell Design Week on the 24 May. Please tweet us if you would like to book in a meeting.

Sanctuary Bathrooms - Geberit Awards

Geberit Awards winners are revealed

998 578 Daniel Fountain

Recognising industry talent and a commitment to producing work of the highest quality, the 2016 Geberit Awards winners have been announced.

The standard of nominations this year was extremely high, with the judges having a hard task separating some of the most stand-out entries in each category.
Jonathan Terry scooped the title of ‘Best Domestic Bathroom Installer’, after being nominated for the title by Taylors Etc. in Cardiff. The bathroom showroom regularly recommends Jonathan to its customers due to his exceptional workmanship. Geberit Awards judges agreed, commenting on one particularly complex install by saying: “Attention to detail and impressive installation practice has resulted in a very neat finish.”

Second place in this category was awarded to Steve Phippard of ASP Plumbing, with Mark Fowdon of Studio One South West scooping the third-place spot. The very best examples of how teamwork pays off were on display in the ‘Best Installer Team’ category, with Sanctuary Bathrooms taking the top spot. Their work installing a master en-suite incorporating Geberit products to wall-mount the sanitaryware and maximise on space particularly impressed the judging panel. Judges comments included: “The overall finish is of a high standard, extremely neat and you can clearly see the installation team have a keen eye for detail.”

Taking second place in the ‘Best Installer Team’ category went to Dunster Biomass Heating who chose Geberit Mapress when fitting a woodchip biomass system at a privately owned property in Sussex. The remaining spot was awarded to Designer Group, for their excellent team work while installing Geberit HDPE in student accomodation in Dublin.

The many advantages of specifying Geberit Mapress were maximised by the winners of the ‘Best Supply Systems Installer’ category, with Derek Barclay of K J Quinn Services taking the title. Using his initiative and drawing on his expertise, Derek specified Geberit Mapress Carbon Steel as the best fit for a complete boiler room installation for the M.O.D in Wiltshire.

Completing the project to exacting timescales, Derek was praised by Geberit Awards judges, who said: “This entry detailed the time constraints K J Quinn Services faced with this job. After finding Geberit Mapress as an alternative method they managed to halve their intitial installation time from 8 weeks to 4 weeks. The care and attention to the individual stages of the installation made this a stand-out entry.”

An exceptional commitment to the job was also shown by second place ‘Best Supply Systems Installer’ Mark Griffiths, who used Geberit Mapress for the efficient installation of a twin air source heat pump system. Third place in this category went to Christopher Flaherty of Vietec Heating. Again, Geberit Mapress was the piping solution of choice for Christopher when tasked with fitting a new heating system into a private residence in London.

The overall winner of each category picks up a cheque for £1,000, with Makita Drill Sets and Radios for the runners up.

“It is great to see so many installers taking pride in their work and always striving to achieve the very best,” commented Raffaela De Vittorio, Geberit Marketing & Brands Director. “Each of the winners and runners up has clearly demonstrated how Geberit products can be utilised to their best effect.”
