The back bar “monument” of our Prince-themed Darling Nikki booth is clad with heavily textured custom Ultra-Storm tempered glass. Its back surface is colored with hand-applied transparent pigmentation ranging from hot-pink, to fuchsia, with undertones of violet purple. It is finished on the back surface with a multi-layered reflective coating helping to illuminate the front surface and giving the illusion that it’s lighted from behind. The color is less saturated at the top and becomes darker and moodier as it flows toward the bottom. The molded side elements of the “monument” are capped with the same material, which has been kiln-formed to encase the corners and flow down onto the bar, reminiscent of the opening of a theatrical stage curtain revealing the PurpleRainGlas. This material can be used in a myriad of ways to add drama to most installations.

Art & Accessories
For Kalisher’s BDNY 2016 booth, designed with Marriott, Kalisher curated a striking piece by an Austin, Texas-based artist. The manipulated photographic work is mysterious and explosive at once, drawing the eye in and out and in again. Playing on light and shadow, this piece takes on a life of its own on, as seen here, printed mirrored acrylic. Kalisher’s curatorial team regularly curates and commissions artwork from independent artists around the world.

Chief among Ginger’s latest bathroom accessories is the innovative valet hook. The valet hook lies unobtrusively dormant when not in use, taking up minimal space.

An industry first complete with beautiful style and purpose, the valet hook can be a tremendous asset to any bathroom, dressing area, or laundry room.
Created in partnership with renowned kitchen and bath designer Matthew Quinn, this semi-recessed sink is a perfect example of re-imagining everyday objects. The Continuum offers an ingenious construction that uses the countertop cut-out to form the bottom of the sink, creating an illusion of a seamless design that allows the striations of the counter material to visually flow ‘through’ the sink. Only the top two inches of the sink rim rest on the countertop and leveling feet are included to support the cut-out in the sink bowl. The Continuum is manufactured of proprietary Engineered Solid Stone®, a non-porous mixture of natural ground materials and high performance resins that is 100% solid and easy to maintain. Because nearly 65% of the material is organic, and the cut-out is repurposed, the sink is considered environmentally friendly.
Nipomo bathroom sink is a one-of-a-kind powerhouse of versatility, designed with three installation options. This innovative product creates a singular advantage for a boutique design—one sink that can be installed undermount, apron-front, or as a vessel, with generous sizing ideal for a hospitality bath. Nipomo is innovative in its material, as well; it is handcrafted of NativeStone®, a sustainably-made concrete product that Native Trails developed with all the beauty and versatility of concrete, but without its disadvantages. A combination of natural jute fiber with cement, NativeStone capitalizes on the inherent durability and resilience of jute to produce an extraordinarily strong material with high tensile strength that is crack-resistant and 40% lighter than ordinary concrete. Typically, concrete bathroom sinks are custom-made, often on-site; Nipomo is stocked and available in three gorgeous finishes: Ash, a light, natural gray with beautiful mottling; Slate, a dark gray for a deep pop of color; and Pearl, a rustic white with cool gray undertones. Traditional concrete tends to stain and is difficult to maintain; not the case with NativeStone. Nipomo’s exclusive nano-sealing process eliminates that concern by providing exceptional stain resistance, making concrete as practical as porcelain. All this innovation certainly doesn’t detract from style. Nipomo is perfect for today’s clean design styles; its soft rectangular shape shows off the organic beauty of concrete, at a much lighter weight and with no-fuss maintenance. As with all Native Trails products, Nipomo can help a project earn points toward LEED certification.

Functionality meets Revolutionary Design. The Viaggio will be there to welcome you to your home away from home, creating the ultimate guest experience. This multi-functional unit features a slide-out for luggage storage – making access to all of your belongings easy and convenient for the duration of your stay. Other key elements of the Viaggio unit include a slide-out desk, charging station, lockable drawer safe with key card access, LED base lighting to be used as a night guide, and a bottom shelf for large suitcase storage. Several materials and design elements have been incorporated to create the exclusive look of the Viaggio – high gloss laminate, textured laminates and quartz – but what makes this design truly unique is the patented wood grain embossed steel frame.
A true visionary ahead of his time, Robert Sonneman developed the concept for the Suspenders structural LED lighting system back in the late 1980s, filing a patent for the concept though the technology needed for the revolutionary product was not available. Suspenders explores the potential for design innovation utilizing today’s most cutting-edge lighting technologies, featuring a delicately scaled, modular system of interconnected elements and suspended LED components. A powerful example in its message of utility and simplicity, the fundamental architecture of the system is based upon linear elements suspended from each other by vertical elements. Comprised of three main components—power bars, hangers and luminaires—it can be configured as individual lighting sculptures or as a web of infinite scope and variety. The new technology-enabled design is a much more successful realization of the designer’s vision because LED technology consumes less electricity, produces less heat, and requires smaller transformers than halogen. The vision of an illuminating system that you can configure as long, as wide and as deep as you can imagine was only possible using today’s advanced electronic components. Freed from the restrictions of the heavy electrical system components of the past, Sonneman was able to consider a vast new range and scope of possibilities using an electronic approach to illumination. SONNEMAN—A Way of Light has preconfigured a collection of arrangements that can be easily modified or used as inspiration to create custom configurations. The compelling logic and minimal scale of Suspenders invites a diversity of interpretation and investigation.
Littman Brands’ global contract, hospitality and custom division, which includes Troy Lighting, Corbett Lighting and Hudson Valley Lighting®, presents its latest creation ARCHETTO – a kinetic hanging LED light sculpture designed by Littman Brands’ Director of Custom and Design, Nicolas Baldoni. Inspired by the movement of sound, ARCHETTO offers vibrant colors with dynamic, symphonic motion. Nicolas drew inspiration from his great-grandfather Dante Baldoni, leading manufacturer of string instruments in Argentina during the early 20th century. ARCHETTO harmoniously captures both the refined craftsmanship of Dante’s legacy and Nicolas’ passion for engineering innovative lighting designs. With its one-inch glass tubes, fastened with laser cut polished aluminum connectors and aircraft cable, ARCHETTO constructs the shape and movement reminiscent of a bow. A representation of sound, this fixture rhythmically moves to one of its programmed settings by way of 48 motors, while a synchronized color-changing RGBA displays the rich hues of red, green, blue and amber – illuminating a sound wave pattern. Perfectly orchestrated, ARCHETTO personifies the fluid motion of a musician playing a violin or cello.
Hennepin Made is a modern hand blown glass lighting studio located in Minneapolis, MN. We believe that handmade products have a vital place in our culture and everyday life, which is why we work passionately to create objects that enhance the environment people inhabit. Hennepin Made was founded in Minneapolis, MN in 2011 through the partnership of Joe Limpert and Jackson Schwartz with the common belief that handmade products have an essential place in our culture and everyday life. We first designed, produced and launched the Parallel Series in 2014. In designing this collection Jackson and Joe searched for a pairing of materials that would create a dynamic contrast while allowing for an elegant harmony. They decided to bring together the rich complementary duo of spun aluminum and hand blown glass. To round out the series, in June 2016 we launched two smaller scale pendants, one of which is the Vela. The Vela has a thin, delicate shape and was designed as a small floating vessel for lighting modern spaces. This pendant is also beautiful in multi-pendant installations and features LED lamping. With the options of vibrant colors or subtle tones, this handcrafted light can make a bold statement or quietly bring together any space. Lastly, the Vela’s spectacular price point makes it a perfect fit for almost any budget.

In2green Indoor / Outdoor line. Our indoor/outdoor throw blanket line is now complete with 25 beautiful new colors and graphic designs to support use in mountain, pool and waterfront resort locations. In2green has innovated a unique “up-cycled” material to offer hospitality signature knit textiles that are fully customizable and made 100% from eco-materials in the USA. The ultra soft throws are made exclusively from recycled polyester – no one who feels them can image that each throw is made from 78 water bottles! The recycled fabric moves away from traditional acrylic in the outdoor space (a fiber made with chemicals that have been shown to be harmful and no longer produced in the US.) Each throw is fade resistant, quick to dry and machine wash/dry. The manufacturing process removes plastic from landfill, plus offsets the need for new crude oil, thereby conserving energy and natural resources. Whether selecting from in2green’s stock of more than 250 modern graphics or using custom art to directly match a project, designers can work with small minimums and a local USA based partner. In2green offers custom sizes, colors and graphic patterns. While in2green’s indoor/outdoor collection previewed at BDNY last year with three samples, the full collection now offers a wide line for hotel and resort use. In2green textiles can be used indoors as bed scarves or to decorate suites or as accent items at cabana, fireside, restaurant, or hotel gift stores. See: You Tube on in2green’s recent 2016 ICON HONOR award for innovation.
