Selo: adding a touch of luxe to prestigious 5* London hotel
Selo is the UK’s leading design and manufacturer of innovative doorset solutions with 10 years experience in the hotel market.
Selo doorsets were born from the belief that fitting doors should be simple so they created systems that complement hotel architectural design, are highly functional, and are quick and easy to implement.
Selo has an impressive list of clients on various high profile projects across the UK and most recently their innovative doorsets were fitted in an eclectic, luxury 5* hotel in Fitzrovia, London – just set behind the busy shopping area on Oxford Street.
This exclusive hotel has 30 bedrooms and three suites spread across four floors, and offers guests a boutique experience with all the trappings of a luxury hotel – a combination that’s hard to achieve in today’s crowded hotel market in London. Working together with Manalo & White Architects and Beck Interiors, Selo fitted bespoke mirrored pocket doors from their ever-popular Enigma range.
Pocket doors were chosen as conventional swing doors require a large amount of clearance space, but the Enigma sliding door system is different.
It forms its own cavity, requiring no additional clearance giving guests more space in rooms and a seamless finish across the hotel.
How it works
The Enigma works so that a structural opening twice the door width is formed, into which the pocket door system fits. The cavity is formed by plated aluminium profiles that are plasterboarded over together with the rest of the wall for an ‘invisible’ finish. In this case, the Enigma was adapted bespoke to feature a mirror finish in guest rooms, whilst standard Enigma doorsets were used for cloakroom and kitchen doors – both perfect solutions and in keeping with the sleek and contemporary look required for this high-end hotel interior design.
