The serenity of marble and sandstone

The Wellness area combined various Prada tiles by Porcelanosa in grey tones and the STUC White Texture collection by Urbatek. This porcelain tile that imitates the quality of sandstone and which provides projects with greater resistance is combined with the
Beige Polished XLIGHT ARS wall tile by Urbatek. Its Ivory tones, together with its 6mm thickness was giving balance to the rest of the composition, alongside the XTONE ARS Beige Nature. In this room, we could also find the Delhi Airslate wall tile by L’Antic Colonial, whose 2mm fineness provides greater lightness for the ceiling.

Venis was present with none other than its Rivoli wall tile which imitates the resistant texture of marble with its pure white. As well as that, you could find the perfect decor with the Infinito Rivoli wall tile in a 33.3cmx100 cm size.

The underfloor heating by Butech was also been used here. This type of heating is made up of an electrical mesh and a thermostat which allow the temperature to be regulated through a mobile phone. One of its features is that it does not heat air up; it warms people up instead, together with various elements that find themselves in the same space.

KRIONTM    turned into an everyday material in buildings in the hotel industry because of its high resistance to wear and tear, its durability, its easy cleaning and its zero porosity. Features which allow curved jointless surfaces to be created, which create an exclusive and distinguishing design.

The firm also counted on KRIONTM K·Life 1100, a model whose photocatalytic capacity increases KRIONTM’s own features, which directly contribute to bacteria removal and contamination elimination, which is key when creating safe and healthy areas.

The same material was present in the reception desk, built with the KRIONTM 6505 Taupe colour. In the rear part of the stand, the visitor were able to see both KRIONTM and XLIGHT, and furthermore, some high tables with K-Life were placed in the Networking part.

Sustainable designs for general wellness.
