Underlining how good design can start on the floor, carpet manufacturer Desso has provided unique carpeting for a 215-bedroom hotel in central Amsterdam.
The CitizenM Hotel has carpeted five floors of bedroom corridor with 650 square metres of carpeting depicting an aerial view of the Dutch capital.
The CitizenM Group chose Desso because of its design capacity, making it one of the very few carpet manufacturers in the world able to manage, in-house, one-off special projects from design to delivery.
The Amsterdam city centre image was taken from a satellite photograph, and rendered in a number of colourways for CitizenM to choose from. The unique pattern in one of the corridors is 60 metres long.
“At Desso, our team of designers works with architects and interior designers from all over the world, helping them to realise their design vision. Among our special order clients are large companies, hotels, casinos, conference centres, restaurants, cruise liners and airlines,” said Roland Jonkhoff, Managing Director, Hospitality, Marine & Aviation.
Desso has been designing and manufacturing carpet for almost 80 years. The company has factories in Holland and Belgium and its products can be found in commercial and public buildings worldwide. Their customers include Rabobank, KLM, Marriott Hotels and Virgin Atlantic.
