Hospitality design industry news

Whether for business or for pleasure, there will never be a shortage of people looking to visit the Hawaiian Islands.  Hoteliers know this and are always seeking ways to make the experience more pleasurable.  

Hilton Hotels is set to open the largest Hilton Garden Inn next month.  Located on the beautiful island of Oahu on popular Waikiki Beach, the soft color palette and specific art choices celebrate the location and local culture.  The Kapa prints that adorn the walls provide color and a sense of history while natural materials provide texture and interest.

Kapa cloth, or prints, are designs that are woven onto cloth created from fibers  of the indigenous trees.  Designs are created through the use of linear elements that form geometric shapes such as triangles, squares, chevrons and diagonal lines.  When framed or blocked onto a piece of wood they make exquisite pieces of art.

Celebrating local culture is an important aspect of any hospitality design project.  A visit to the islands will be enhanced when the culture is represented at every opportunity.  Over the years we have designed several bespoke door handles for clients and offer some ethnic designs in our collections.
