Design showcase: Top five designs with metals

by | 24 Nov 2021 | Design

We reflect on how metals add character to the interiors of properties like The Londoner, Conrad Washington DC and Ace Hotel Kyoto in another TOPHOTELDESIGN exclusive.

3,200 years ago, metals revolutionised human history. This was known as the Iron Age. 130 years ago, they revolutionised architecture.

Metallic surfaces that really shine

Ever heard of the Eiffel Tower? Today’s buildings can be noticeably lighter and taller than ever before, and some are even designed to be transported across the ocean like Lego, ready to be reassembled on the other side.

Metals and their uses are inevitably linked to certain eras and technological breakthroughs.

Architecture and design aesthetics that include metals nostalgically remind us of past styles or exciting faraway futures. They can be curvy, intriguing and sensual as well as sharp, tough and severe.

From bronze industrial-like pipes and elegant panels, and futuristic bedroom walls that reflect the sky, to curvy modern structures, these designs will definitely immerse visitors in unique aesthetics.

Diseño: los mejores cinco diseños con metales

Reflexionamos sobre cómo los metales añaden carácter a los interiores de propiedades como The Londoner, Conrad Washington DC y Ace Hotel Kyoto en otra exclusiva de TOPHOTELDESIGN.

Hace 3.200 años, el metal revolucionó la historia de la humanidad. Es lo que se conoce como la Edad de Hierro. Hace 130 años, el metal también revolucionó la arquitectura.

Superficies metálicas que brillan de verdad

¿Alguna vez escuchaste hablar de la Torre Eiffel? Los edificios hoy en día pueden ser mucho más ligeros y más altos que nunca, y algunos incluso están diseñados para ser transportados a través del océano como si fueran Legos, listos para ser montados de nuevo en otro lado.

Los metales y sus usos están inevitablemente ligados a ciertas épocas y avances tecnológicos.

La arquitectura y la estética del diseño que incluyen metales nos recuerdan con nostalgia estilos pasados o emocionantes futuros lejanos. Pueden ser curvos, intrigantes y sensuales, así como afilados, duros y severos.

Tuberías de bronce de aspecto industrial, paneles elegantes, paredes de dormitorios futuristas que reflejan el cielo y estructuras modernas con curvas. Todos estos diseños sumergirán definitivamente a los visitantes en una estética única.
