Salone del Mobile.Milano 2023. Creative solutions from Spain for highly-personalized, inviting hospitality and work environments

March 21 / 2023

Modern trends in hospitality and work environment design show that standardization is no longer the norm. It is becoming critical to personalize and tailor spaces to the preferences of travelers and promote employee well-being and vitality. In hotels, rooms are no longer the main attraction and in offices the trend for a more flexible, evolutive approach is still high.

So, stranger as it may seems, the way the two sectors are approaching the design of spaces is similar in many aspects. The need for community and connection is rapidly increasing both in hotels and workspaces and, while hospitality venues are turning themselves into remote working hotspots for locals and traveler’s alike, more and more office spaces are turning towards the hospitality and retail sectors for inspiration. The most successful workspaces will have the plush interiors of a posh social club, or they should at least feel cozier and more inviting than an average corporate environment.

To meet these new demands, Spanish brands have developed solutions specifically conceived to make hotels, restaurants and work environments much more comfortable and aesthetically-pleasing places to be. Their stimulating and inspiring furnishing products contribute to higher levels of engagement, productivity, innovation and retention.

LINK & LOOP sofas. By Raw | SANCAL

Hall 2 Stand H25/H27

With its ability to evoke a feeling of nostalgia for childhood’s past and its emphasis on creating an organic and comforting environment, Neotenic Design is an innovative approach to creating interiors that elicit a positive emotion response through the combination of soft lines, sweet colors, and plush materials in curved furniture. A trend that has inspired the design of the attractive LINK & LOOP sofas, created by Dutch industrial designer studio Raw Color for SANCAL.

Based on the creative use of cylindric volumes, the duo of playful upholstered sofas challenges any conventionalism associated with resting and socializing while encouraging a sense of fun and connection among users. Their curved silhouette is ideal to soften linear architecture and make spaces more comfortable and friendlier.
