This new identity allows the company to draw upon the vast resources of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, and positions it to better meet the evolving needs of the hospitality industry.

For over 40 years, the name VingCard Elsafe has been synonymous with innovation in hotel security technology. Their story began in 1974, when lock engineer Tor Sørnes heard that an intruder had attacked his favorite singer in her hotel room. He resolved to find a solution and invented VingCard, effectively revolutionizing the entire lock industry.
Today, as the world rapidly changes and technology continues to evolve, the ASSA ABLOY family offers the company access to more than 1,400 visionary engineers, working together to innovate, improve quality and add more products to their already extensive portfolio of solutions.

“Our company has evolved over the years, but who we are remains the same,” continued Shea. “Our purpose is not simply to lock and unlock more doors—it is to unlock the feeling of safety, security and belonging for more people, wherever they go.
ASSA ABLOY Hospitality is part of ASSA ABLOY’s Global Technologies division. ASSA ABLOY is the global leader in door opening solutions, and is already recognized as an industry innovator. The company has made the Forbes “World’s 100 Most Innovative Companies” list for two consecutive years.]]>

<![CDATA[EUREKA, coat hook]]> Destined to be replaced with models of new generation, some of whom draw on its sphere shape joined to the screw, the classical light bulb has turned itself into a contemporary icon: protagonist for decades of our domestic landscape, it expressed a neutral presence, psychologically acquired and perceptively reassuring presence: an item now rescued from the judgment of time.
The name of this coat hook utilizes the classical Greek word “Eureka”, that is “I have found it”, notoriously attributed to Archimedes on the occasion of one of his bright discoveries: the lighting of a light bulb describes perfectly the instantaneity of the idea.
EUREKA is made of yellow acetilic resin and aluminium screw: the colour describes the low color temperature of the incandescent light bulb.
In spite of the innocent freshness of the quotation, the production is characterized by high quality level.
In order to improve its performing qualities, from now on the coat hook (BASEBALL + model) is equipped with a stainless steel additional hook.
The stainless steel wall joint, with total disappearance, is suitable for every kind of support.
EUREKA completes the INSILVIS collection of ready made objects: BOLT, GOLF, BASEBALL, FOOTBALL e TENNIS.]]>

<![CDATA[Easer Chair – form and function for the ages]]>
Designer Rogier Waaijer has pushed the boundaries of rotational moulding with a seat that is extraordinarily slim, and he’s worked and re-worked the design to make certain the ergonomics are just right – with plenty of back support and comfortable arm rests to encourage good posture, but allowances for relaxed sitting for hours on end.

Available in black, white and sand, the Easer is an easily-cleaned, low-maintenance chair. With a drainage slit integrated into the seat, and the weather and wear-resistant materials that will stand up to the elements, it’s also suited to outdoor use on the patio, around the pool, or for outdoor dining.

Waaijer has retained a number of the design elements from the Lonc collection – the open sides and refined curves, a hint of movement, and the soft surface treatment of the seat and the brushed stainless steel base, but here, the forms are leaner and lighter. “I believe we’ve taken the rotational moulding production technique to a new level with the Easer,” says Waaijer. “But that is secondary to our real objective – to create a chair where a perfect balance of elegance and comfort by tightly integrating form and function.”]]>

Witharequirementfor extensive technology throughout the house, the only stipulation made by the owner was that all the electronics were to be rendered completely invisible. Thishasgivenanaturalflowtothehomeandallowedthespiritof the house to live on into a new millennia.
A total of thirty Amina Invisible Loudspeakers were installed over five floors and sixteen zones, Amina being the easy choice for the homeowners, not only to meet the exceptional aesthetic criteria of the project, but for the excellent sound and room-filling qualities Amina speakers produce.
Amina ‘Evolution’ series were used throughout this extensive family home, including the five Bedrooms, Office, Dining Room, Drawing Room, Gym, Staff Room,AVRoom,LibraryandDressingRoom. Thetwo5.1SurroundSound Systems in the subterranean playroom and lower ground family room, as well as gym and office, use Amina AIW550E and also incorporate in-wall Velodyne subs.
The highlights for the homeowners were, the kitchen, where a pair of AIW350E installed in-ceiling, provide music encompassing the whole room. And the formal drawing room, installed with just one pair of Amina’s flagship AIW750E speakers, effortlessly delivers high quality audio, perfect for entertaining.
The whole system, including audio & video distribution, security, Lutron lighting system, video Intercom, Heating and Cooling, has been seamlessly integrated and programmed to be entirely controlled by a Control4 processor via discrete 7’’ touch panels in every room.
A masterpiece of perfection, the finished look, which took over 18-months to complete, is flawless. A stark contrast to the 15 miles of Cat 6a data cables running behind the walls and the project’s outset.

<![CDATA[Determining design and energy efficiency of buildings — exceptionel solutions for claddings with Texo® System]]>
The patented Texo® System is basically a well known acquaintance: used in exhibition stand construction and shopfitting, the tenter frame was perfected for outside use and claddings. For the beholder it is „only“ an impressive design element, but in case it serves as an energetic light and heat modulating system.

This highly flexible system can be used for new as well as for existing buildings to refresh them and giving them a new contemporary character. You can easily change the covering to give the building a new facade without constructional working. The extremly light weight compound made of extruded aluminum profile and prestressed textile surface has only small requirements onto the load capacity of the underconstruction, it is a dry-building system with little effort on the construction because the main configuration is made in the factory. The unique solution to give tension on the membrane has the advantage that you only need a facadebuilder instead of a construction builder. This raises the efficiency of the assembling team and shortens the assembling time substantially.

The Texo® System is very easy to handle: with the help of a silicone elastomer a textile membrane gets stretched into a prefabricated aluminum profile. The silicone elastomer works like a buffer against wind. So Texo® will not lose its tension for years and will stay climate consistent for a delectable long time.

The textile membranes are resistant against dirt as well. The manufacturer promises a durability from 15 to 35 years, according to the equipment and which kind of the system is used. All textile membranes are conform to all standards required for fire behaviour. Standard membranes are made of polyester, silicone, fibreglas or E.T.F.E foil and all can get digital printed.

All aluminum profiles are adjusted to the current object and real roundings are no problem. The only limit is the production size of the used textile. Furthermore you can work with textile membranes from different manufacturers: the „Luna Rossa“-teambase in Valencia for example was completely changed into a translucent high-tech facade by using 9000 sqm of old sails.

The advantage of the system in view of the energy efficiency of a building is clearly therein, that the design giving elements are in front of the wall, so that they effect a substantial cooling load reduction.]]>

<![CDATA[Solarlux SL 45 folding glass door: The opening (up) of space and new possibilities at NHL]]>
The design of the existing building with its compartmentalised structure was to be maintained and integrated into the new plans. Herman Hertzberger and his Amsterdam-based office "Architectuurstudio HH" designed a new building of 20,500 m², which frames the existing building on all sides.

The use of wide-opening glass façades, both on the exterior and the interior, contributes to the open layout of the building. The use of glass both for the exterior façade and for partition walls creates transparency and bright spaces deep inside the building. As a result, interior units not located at the exterior façade, such as a bookshop, an information point and many others, are still attractive spaces. This can be attributed to in part to the folding glass doors from Solarlux, which form the interior partitions. The ceiling-height SL 45 elements create an open atmosphere but, if necessary, can be indi-vidually closed.

Folding glass doors make for versatile spaces
Standing approximately 2.8 meters in height and up to 14 meters in width, the individual installations can be completely opened over the entire width of the space in just a few easy steps, enabling the shop to merge seamlessly with the common area outside. Goods and information are displayed in an inviting way to the public as they walk by. And the glass elements are parked neatly to the side. A seven-element folding glass door, for example, consists of six folding elements and a turning door. The turning door serves as the entrance when the installation is closed. The elements run on flush-mounted rails set into the floor, which makes for smooth operation, thresh-old-free openings and barrier-free access. The sound insulation rating Rw of the folding glass façade is 35 dB.

Solarlux’s specifications are reflected in the execution of the concept for the "Noordelijke Hogeschool Leeuwarden". The fact that the NHL won a "European Design Award" in the category "Company Implementation" at the same time as the Official Opening is a clear statement to the success of this concept.]]>

In Japan, the bathroom is a place in which people can care for their physical as well as their emotional well-being. It is a site of relaxation and regeneration. Thanks to TOTO, people throughout Europe can now bring this bathing culture into their homes. The highend NEOREST product range best delivers this experience. TOTO updated and reworked this collection.

At first glance, the clean, streamlined design of the luxurious NEOREST collection exu-
des a feeling of calm, wellness and comfort. The highlight of the series is the freestanding bathtub, which is also the newest member to the family of products. It has a very delicate look, but is made of extremely durable materials. The pillow at the end of the tub can be removed, and armrests are available upon request. The drain is covered to create a seamless, homogeneous surface.

This elegant look is continued in the exceptional NEOREST washbasins, which combine excellent design, comfort and outstanding hygiene. For example, the ceramic surface features the special CeFiONtect glaze, which makes it difficult for dirt and bacteria to accumulate.

Pioneering technology for the ultimate in hygiene
Today, more and more exclusive luxury hotels around the world are installing the NEO-
REST WASHLET in their suites to offer their discerning guests a truly special amenity.
This WASHLET has more comfortable functions and far superior self-cleaning capabilities than any other shower toilet on the market. It is available in two versions:
The NEOREST EW WASHLET cleans itself using electrolysed water, also called ewater+, which has antibacterial properties. This works in tandem with the CeFiONtect glaze, making it extremely difficult for dirt and bacteria to accumulate on the ceramic surface.

• The NEOREST AC WASHLET goes one step further, using Actilight technology to actively fight dirt and bacteria. A UV light integrated in the toilet lid shines on the zirconium-coated toilet break down waste.]]>

<![CDATA[Accoya® the Environmental Choice for Norwegian Primary School]]>
Bjørnsletta Primary School is the first Passive House school in Norway’s capital Oslo, scoring high on energy efficiency and constructed using eco-friendly building materials.

Designed by L2 Architects AS, Bjørnsletta is just one of several projects that are a part of the FutureBuilt initiative in Norway – a ten-year programme (2010-2020) to develop high-quality architecture with the lowest possible greenhouse gas emissions.

While the main school building has been clad using stone, the three individual classroom wings have been clad with Accoya, which was chosen by the architects to support their vision of the school as an environmentally friendly and highly durable property.

Accoya wood was also used to design and construct three other building projects across Norway: Brattås Elementary School in Nøtterøy, Big Horn Restaurant in Sandnes and Havnegården in Arendal. Again, Accoya was selected as cladding in all three building projects because it met the architects’ requirements for eco-friendly and sustainable buildings in the country, stability and durability requirements.

Accoya offers unrivalled environmental advantages which far outweigh the use of alternative products such as scarce and unsustainable hardwoods. Accoya has been recognised for its environmental standards worldwide by independent assessors, and Accsys Technologies holds a host of ecolabels which demonstrate the green credentials of Accoya.

Bryan Crennell, director of sales and marketing at Accsys Technologies said: “The property at Bjørnsletta Primary School is a striking and contemporary building, and it made complete sense that Accoya was chosen for this project by the architects. Using Accoya has satisfied the owner’s requirement for a carbon neutral property as a part of the FutureBuild scheme.



“Accoya is consistently specified for construction projects throughout Norway, and these examples of primary schools in Brattås and Nøtterøy really show why Accoya outshines its competitors.”



Manufactured using Accsys Technologies propriety acetylation technology, Accoya is one of the most superior wood products on the market today. It performs to the highest of standards, delivering remarkable levels of stability, sustainability and class 1 durability. Exceeding the high-quality an aesthetic attributes of tropical hardwoods, Accoya also boasts excellent environmental credentials by using wood sourced from FSC® certified and sustainable forests.]]>

<![CDATA[Dino Waterpark Makes Soft Opening]]>
For three years, Pratunam Khon Kaen Co. considered its development options for the land it had purchased in Khon Kaen in northeastern Thailand. Focused on creating a tourism hub, the development firm wanted attractions that would offer the greatest allure to an area of the country not typically considered a tourist destination.

The company decided on a themed waterpark because no similar entertainment district existed in the area. The park owners invested heavily - US$60 million - in rides and slides that would draw guests from long distances. Their efforts have resulted in the development of not only the region’s largest waterpark but the largest in Southeast Asia.

The new park hosted a soft opening last month with the planned 1st phase waterslides open and plans an official celebration with the opening of all the waterslides in November.

First "Magicone" Waterslide in the Asia
Covering more than 40 acres, Dino Waterpark - as its name suggests - is themed on a time in the earth’s history more than 100 million years ago when dinosaurs roamed the earth. During the Jurassic period, great plant-eating dinosaurs fed on lush ferns and palm-like plants while being hunted by smaller, but fierce, carnivorous beasts.

Daino Park Co. Ltd. (based in Seoul, South Korea), the park’s development firm, chose Polin Waterparks for the park’s waterpark attractions due to the wide variety of signature, one-of-a-kind rides that Polin is known for. As a result, the park now is home to one of the company’s newest rides: Magicone.

The Magicone is a high-capacity waterslide with a unique riding experience and design. Shaped like a gigantic funnel tipped on its side, guests enter the streamlined, geometric form by sliding down a steep drop that sends them whirling around the conical interior. The unique parabolic shape creates surprising changes in momentum that give guests a longer, more adrenaline-pumping ride than similar attractions. The slide can end in one of two options: into a pool or as a run-out exit.

Like nearly all of Polin’s attractions, the Magicone is also manufactured using resin transfer molding (RTM) composites technology.]]>

The World Health Organisation states that “noise seriously damages human health and interferes with people’s daily activities at school, at work, at home and during recreation time”.

Now contributing to noise reduction are Equipo DRT’s Ceres and Dedalo fabrics, certified as acoustic fabrics with an absorption coefficient of 0.6 in a coverage ratio of 0 to 1 pursuant to ISO 11654, which gives the weighted sound absorption coefficient under normal use and identifies the formula by which these are measured, the assessed absorption degree: αw = 0.6 (0-1).

Ceres and Dedalo are therefore acoustic absorption materials, apart from being ideal for decoration, using an effective and recognised method for reducing noise levels within work or living areas and adjusting acoustic conditions in concert or conference halls, cinemas, auditoriums, offices and homes.

<![CDATA[Where the Design of High End Swimming Pools is Headed]]>
Striking Finishes are In
Building and designing a custom swimming pool gives you the option of creating whatever the heart desires, and there are plenty of styles to choose from. Whether it’s modern, chic, classic or flashy, the range of swimming pool finishes and accessories available from Guncast are guaranteed to make your swimming pool design an imaginative masterpiece.
Another of the latest trends in swimming pool finishes, is glass tiles. The days of bare ceramic tiles are no more. Many pool owners are opting for opulence - with Italian glass mosaics and twinkling tiles in a myriad of rich colours. On top of the obvious aesthetic benefits, glass tiles are also stronger than ceramics, so there’s no need to worry about cracks or breakage either.

Movement is the Future
The moving floor swimming pool is set to get even bigger and better this year. This innovative piece of technology already features in the homes of luxury swimming pool owners across the globe, and it’s easy to see why. The moving floor component offers the option of transforming a swimming pool into extra space for social events, exercise or leisure at the touch of a button. If that’s not high-tech enough though, there’s also the moving wall swimming pool. If the decision of whether to have a swimming pool inside or outside is too overwhelming, with the moving wall swimming pool you can have both.

Up and Coming Luxury Spas
If lavishness is the aim, don’t stop at a swimming pool alone. There is a vast array of indulgent extras to include in a spa system. Guncast can include saunas, steam rooms, plunge pools and even hydrotherapy systems to complete not only an indulgent but also, a truly healthy private retreat. Anyone suffering from aching muscles, injuries, stress or any other ailments will truly benefit from an extended session in a spa by Guncast. Bespoke luxury spas are the perfect addition to the properties of those opting for healthier and more holistic lifestyles.

<![CDATA[Fully covered with cowhide]]> «The secret of this cowhide seat lies in its name: Nuno. This is the name of the Portuguese Oliveira, a genius of horse-riding practiced with skillfulness (who passed away in ’89). His talent was to feel the balance point on every horse he was riding. Nuno, as an elegant furnishing object, wants to embody the qualities of method, grace and strength, which the riding Master had spread with unequalled ability. I wanted to design it in 2014, the Chinese year of the horse, and I think that it will bring me luck». Nuno is a remarkable, textured complement, inspired by the work of skilled saddlers, and has the dual function of stool/sculpture and footrest/organizer compartment. «Nuno is also a tribute to the tradition of artisanal manufacture mixed with innovation by Zanotta», Oshiro explains. «I took one year to finalize it after sketches, studies and small prototypes. It came out one furnishing object, where the care to details, the stitching, the straps, the sturdiness and feel of the cowhide all contribute to its beauty, whose attraction increases over time». Kensaku Oshiro’s personal and professional story starts off with a diploma achieved at Milan’ Polytechnic School of Design, where he distinguished himself to the point he was soon called by Piero Lissoni studio. To this experience, the discovery and analysis of the “Castiglioni’s way” was fundamental to Oshiro’s training as a designer. «It has been a honor for me working with Zanotta; it’s a company whose roots lie in the world’s best design. Not surprisingly, many are the pieces by Castiglioni brothers that are in the Zanotta’s catalogue, distributed in over three decades. The irony, the free interpretation of form, the firm anchoring to the function are the mainstays of the spirit by the Castiglioni’s lesson. With Nuno I wanted to design an object, that decorates and lasts over time». The Nuno stool and “saddle” container unit belongs to those furnishing objects to be put in the corners of the living room as it was an object-sculpture. The Polimex ® frame completely covered in soft cowhide, is equipped with an opening seat that reveals a cowhide-covered organizer compartment.]]> Tue, 26 May 2015 11:01:58 +0200 <![CDATA[FIACCOLA 510 - RGB]]> Available in different lengths and diameters with RGB or monochrome light.
