When historic architecture and modern interior design are skilfully combined, the result is inspiring rooms – perfectly demonstrated at the Hotel Indigo Warsaw Nowy Świat in Warsaw. This stylish 4star boutique hotel, owned by the InterContinental Hotels Group, is housed in a listed building, over 100 years old, on cosmopolitan Nowy Świat Street. Later contemporary extensions, some with wraparound glass, afford not only a magnificent view of the old town and the Polish capital’s skyline from all the rooms, but also provide a suitable frame for a minimalist interior with vibrant splashes of colour. As the perfect complement to the interior decoration, the hotel has chosen enamelled bathroom solutions from Kaldewei which guarantee a comfortable showering and bathing experience in the 60 rooms.
The building, Smolna40 is in one of the city’s most picturesque areas which links contemporary and historic Warsaw. Destroyed during the Second World War, it was rebuilt in the 1950s and later a modern mansard roof and an annex with wraparound glass and a terrace were added based on a design by architect Bogdan Kulczyński. This produced an attractive mix of styles that runs through the entire hotel. Bright rooms with elaborate stucco and elegant columns contrast with the 60 bedrooms that embrace a more minimalist look in plain shades of white and grey. Throughout the hotel, coloured furniture creates exciting highlights that put their own spin on the palatial style of 19th century mansion flats.
The Hotel Indigo chose bathroom solutions from Kaldewei. The baths from Kaldewei’s clean-lined, minimalist Puro line possess a persuasively unfussy elegance and are made of exquisite material. As a highlight, the freestanding Meisterstück Centro Duo Oval brings timeless elegance and calm into the bathroom of the Superior Premium room. In a further 47 rooms, the Conoflat floor-level shower surface ensures a luxurious showering experience, while offering the greatest safety underfoot: because the shower surfaces in the matt shades of Lava Black and Alpine White from the Coordinated Colours Collection feature the anti-slip properties of Kaldewei’s Secure Plus finish.
Kaldewei shower surfaces, washbasins and baths are chosen for top hotels all over the world. The enamelled bathroom solutions, not only meet the highest aesthetic requirements of hoteliers and their guests, but are also extremely cost-efficient thanks to Kaldewei steel enamel’s longevity and ease of maintenance. Another point in their favour is: the intelligent surface finishes such as anti-slip Secure Plus which can optionally be annealed - heated and allow to cool slowly - in order to remove internal stresses and toughen it onto the steel enamel surface and which ensure the greatest possible safety underfoot in the shower.
