A special feature this year is Studio 16, a depiction of an establishment at the forefront of innovation and the latest trends, with showrooms combining all the new codes of the hospitality and catering industry. Designers and architects have created different spaces such as: “In the Room”, “Resto des chefs”, “Bar”, “Lobby”, “Outdoor” and “Let’s work”. All have been created to show the future of innovations and inventions, and how they apply to the different areas of a hotel.
To find out more about this space, this short 2 minute video introduces the concept:
You can also find the latest trends and innovations in the “capsules”. These spaces have been created in response to specific issues such as accessibility, sustainable development, technological innovations, occupational risk prevention and the spa:
Designed by Laurent Delporte and the architecture and interior design consultancy AW2, this room represents the future; it is low-energy, reinvigorating and organically sourced.
