Wrapped by spaces invented by leading design teams – from Hilton to Marriott – and created with products from the exhibitors of BDNY 2019, magnificent lounges, sophisticated cafes and relaxing spaces welcome visitors into sublime, immersive settings. Fig & Fable by HVS DESIGN, for example, is an original coffee bar experience full of lush vegetation, with the charm of an authentic garden. The inspiration comes from the iconic Eden of Adam and Eve, echoed by emerald green fabrics, floral carpets, warm tones of wood and brass finishes, furnished with items from Architectural Ceramics, BDL–Better Designed Lighting, Brintons, Fairmont Designs, Kevin Barry Fine Art, Swavelle-Mill Creek Contract Fabrics, Pioneer Pro Audio.
MEMENTO: experiences worth remembering, created by the design team of HILTON, is a celebration of the important centenary of one of the leading names in hospitality: a story that winds through travel memories to transform the installation into a live performance. The sponsoring companies include Alger-Triton, Applied Textiles, Fabric Innovations, Formica Corporation, HF Collection, Kalisher, Tarkett. The process of creativity and collaboration is embodied by a successful brand like Marriott in the space of The Exchange: a networking lounge brought to you by Tribute Portfolio, through the mise en scène of a neighborhood bar where ideas are swapped and social relationship forged, immersed in a refined contemporary salon created by the design team of Marriott and Design Poole, sponsored by leading brands like Daltile, Durkan, LacquerCraft Hospitality, LDF Silk, Justin David Textiles, Ratana Furniture, Renaissance Contracts Lighting and Metal Furniture, Studio EL, Wonderly’s Commercial Window Treatments & Bedding.
Urban Lush by the EOA team is an invitation to take a break, where a stratified canyon of eroded walls becomes the perfect setting to rediscover relaxation, amidst new creations by BSF, DAC Art Consulting, Formica Corporation, P/KAUFMANN Contract, Ulster. Elements that evoke nature are seen in the Enchanted Forest by Wimberly Interiors in collaboration with Valley Forge, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Lodging Concepts, Fine Art Lamps, Milliken and Indoteak, where the main focus is environmental sustainability narrated through a painstaking selection of recycled finishes and materials.
