Antrax IT for Hotel Adriatic in Rovigno 14.06.2016
Not simply a fashionable hotel but a veritable beauty experience, Rovinj’s Hotel Adriatic goes well beyond any traditional definitions of hospitality making for a dynamic content concept. Obviously you can sleep, eat and drink here but, first and foremost, it is a place for boundless dreams. The wonder starts at its large windows framing the hotel’s Istria coast panorama or views over the old centre’s narrow alleyways and does not diminish inside the building. Its rooms are rendered unique by installations and art work by artists from Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Italy, Germany and France and its own blend of history, creativity and design.
Hotel Adriatic was the brainchild of Studio 3LHD and interior designer Franić Šekoranja as an experimental project in which to bring to fruition new design horizons. The luxury concept derives simultaneously from the cultural element and the hotel’s harmonious balance of colours and shapes evoking an intimate and timeless atmosphere which takes diverse forms in each of the hotel’s different spaces. Each area has its own identity, in fact, and the strong colours of the common spaces gradually fade to pastel in its 18 suites.
All its large rooms are predominantly pale coloured to contrast with their black furniture, an extremely elegant combination which continues in the geometric style bathrooms. In stark contrast to the luminosity of the white marble walls, slender anthracite elements and shapes stand out. Of these it is Antrax IT’s Tubone radiators which embody the building’s eclectic style to perfection.
Essential and linear, simple and functional the Tubone version used at Hotel Adriatic is the two and three paired elements version, a solution which outlines an emphatic and decorative style which echoes the hotel’s other components, always paired up, in service spaces.
Designed by Andrea Crosetta, Tubone can be installed either vertically or horizontally and is made up of an oval ring made with a 6 cm diameter tube. It is available in more than 200 colours and, in the electric version, can also be supplemented by a chrome effect towel rail handle which enables a heated towel rail function to be added even in small spaces.
With its nomination for Compasso d’Oro in 2008 and its Oderzo award, Tubone is the ideal multi prize winning design object, perfect for a hotel which won Rexpo Adriatic 2015 Best New Hotel Award and is currently in the lists for many other international awards.
