Prague’s Maximilian Hotel reopens following redesign by Conran and Partners
One of Prague’s most established boutique hotels, Maximilian, has reopened after a refurbishment programme by Conran and Partners.
sixteen3 has developed a new range of modular seating that has been created using 83% recycled materials, making it the most sustainable commercial soft seating product in the UK.
Reece, which is available in a variety of configurations, from a single armchair up to a three-seat sofa, features recycled panels made using waste plastics to replace the traditional, less sustainable options, such as hardwood or plywood. In addition, Reece is designed to be easily disassembled at the end of its life, to achieve 100% recyclability.
Paul Chamberlain, Managing Director at sixteen3, said: ‘As a business we have a real focus on innovative design and, over the past few years, we have also spent a lot of time looking at our impact on the environment as a manufacturer and how we can innovate to be kinder to the planet. We are investing significant time and money in finding the right partners to supply us with sustainable materials, including the recycled plastic panels and bamboo available for specification on Reece. This product launch is the first step towards a more environmentally friendly future and it is our hope that, eventually, we will be able to give customers the option of recycled finishes and substrates on our full product range.’
