Holiday Inn hotel, Vilnius, Lithuania. Based on a connected floating furniture system, DuPont™ Corian® is used for most of the interior design furnishing solutions in the guests’ rooms – from the bed base and back board to the table and the round partition/shower; project by Arches; photo courtesy of Holiday Inn, all rights reserved.
In the artery of Lithuanian capital Vilnius, tourists and business travelers will be able to rest their limbs in a total comfort and design. The Holiday Inn hotel, in fact, has chosen to put on a fresh make-up, using the refinement of Corian® for the majority of the guest rooms’ vertical and horizontal surfaces.
The Holiday Inn, located in the business district of the capital, wanted to offer to its guests a memorable stay. For the renovation of 134 top class rooms, the project management was entrusted to Fulvio Cancelli from the company Spekas. The interior design concept has been conceived by Arches architectural studio and the fabrication of Corian® material has been carried out by the company Gforma.
The project is focused on the use of light and on the translucency of Corian® , as well as on the perfect balance between continuous lines, without any visible joint. Fulvio Cancelli affirms, “We wanted a design that would distinguish the hotel in the minds of our guests, and that would ideally tie together the various decor elements from the living and bath areas into a continuous flow.”
For this purpose, the architects designed rooms where the purity of Corian® and its feeling of warmth are the common thread between the bedroom, the bathroom and the living room furniture.
The new bedrooms in fact, are equipped with a bed back board made in Corian®, which frames twin beds that seem suspended. They have been installed with a sliding mechanism so that beds can be joined in case of double room or remain separate in case of twin beds room. The beds base, also in Corian®, is joined seamlessly at the desk beside the bed.
In the living room, the snack table in DuPont™ Corian® includes the place for a little fridge, and it is connected to the shelves and the wall enclosing the screen. Each room is equipped with intelligent home systems and LED lighting, visible through the continuous lines play.
The bathroom is characterized by an eye-catching shower that acts as a partition between the bedroom and the bathroom, made up of two different Corian® thicknesses, in the ultra-translucent Glacier Ice color. When the shower LED light is on, the light filters through the less thick bands and the silhouette of the one having a shower appears while a suggestive illumination diffuses into the room. Also vanity and shelves are made with Corian®, giving a very harmonic feel to the overall design concept and ensuring top quality furnishing solution based on the material’s versatility and reliability.
