CASE STUDY: W Hotel
W Hotel Sky Lobby Bar
LG Hausys was selected as the surface brand of choice for the newly constructed Sky Lobby Bar located in the W Hotel in the heart of New York City. The bar offers a contemporary look featuring white leather seating squares and hanging lamps, and now serves as a popular destination for locals and hotel guests. The bar even features an outdoor seating area for guests to enjoy.
"The W Hotel desired a curved 3-D look for their bar and you cannot accomplish that with traditional soft surface materials. Fortunately, through the use of LG Hausys' HI-MACS product, the hotel achieved the stunning look they were after," said Jon Olson, communications manager at Sterling Surfaces, who served as the project installer.
The bar construction took one month to complete and included knocking down the walls of the conventional lobby design to create an open concept space. The project contractor selected LG Hausys HI-MACS Black Spectrum as the main color for the bar tops due to its monolithic look.
Most HI-MACS Acrylic Solid Surface products are made in the USA and are thermoformable, meaning they can be designed in virtually any size or three-dimensional shape. HI-MACS surface is stain resistant, easy to clean and hygienic making it easy to maintain for a high-traffic area like the W Hotel bar.
