Gravity has a long standing relationship with the Radisson Blu Group of hotels. The latest addition to our portfolio consists of a large custom made rug, designed to complement the artistic backdrop of black and white text on the walls, and which leaves a striking impression upon guests when entering the grand lobby.
The rug gets a special mention in an article by Vicky Karantzavelou of the Travel Daily News.
Hamilton’s approach was to neutralize the ornate background pieces and infuse them with strong contemporary pieces that align with the brand’s design ethos. Standout features of the new lobby include predominant pendant lighting in a mix of pieces from Dutch and Canadian craftsmen. A feature rug of black and white text in the entrance lobby creates a level of curiosity for guests and complements two massive surface applied art installations on both bookend walls that encompass the two restored fireplaces. These two pieces set the overall tone of the room and reinforce the brand’s commitment to a strong contemporary art presence in each of the hotels.
