When you’re traveling on business, the need for comfort is intense. And if you add a touch of creativity to comfort, the result can be memorable. Guido Henzmann of the Ligno Architecture Studio has based his career on this premise. One example is the Congress Hotel Arte in Olten, in the Soletta Canton, roughly 50 km from Basel and Zürich. The reconstruction of the 79 rooms was inspired directly by the concept of art, by a sensibility capable of playing with shapes, colors and materials. The quality and variety offered by the Hotel Arte chain in Switzerland - all of them 4-star establishments - is widely appreciated, as this example confirms.
Our contribution to making the Hotel arte successful
The culture of relaxation. After a hard day’s work, our wellbeing is closely connected to the care we take of our bodies. As Guido Henzmann of the Ligno Studio says, “a hotel bathroom has become as important as its beds or its breakfasts.” Franke, through its Swiss KWC division, was the ideal partner to tackle this challenge.
Practical, but with striking class. The taps and fittings in the KWC ONO collection – by KWC, the Swiss manufacturer of premium taps bought by Franke in 2013 – are solid, simple and truly top-end. KWC’s production of highest quality bathroom and kitchen taps has long dominated the market, thanks to its sophisticated and durable technologies and its innovative design. The stylized chrome levered mixer tap comes with the Neoperl® Cachè® invisible aerator which ensures a generous water jet which is never excessive. The extra-large shower head, on the other hand, dispenses a soft rain-like jet which also has more powerful settings. Then there are the specially designed washbasins: rounded shapes and shining materials (MIRANIT) so elegant as to merit a place among the works of art that decorate the Hotel Arte.
