Student collaboration with wetroom specialists Impey at Sleep 2016

Wetroom specialists Impey is exhibiting at the Sleep Event which takes place from 22nd – 23rd November at the Business Design Centre in Islington.

Impey has been collaborating with a select group of Postgraduate students from Chelsea College of Arts. Tessa Hill, Oliver Harris and Elzbieta Mazgaj, who are studying for an MA in Interior and Spatial Design, initially got involved when Impey posed a challenge to come up with a wetroom stand design concept to their course delegates.

The original and eye-catching ideas that the trio put-forward proved to be just what the UK-based manufacturer was looking for and a stand-design concept for Impey’s Spaces area of this year’s Sleep event was born.

Tessa Hill from London said: “I am incredibly excited to be involved with creating Impey’s stand for Sleep 2016. When I heard that our designs were going to be used, I couldn’t believe it!

“We have incorporated two distinct design themes which we feel will work well within a hotel environment; one is clean, fresh and simple, the other is more indulgent and lavish. I can’t wait to see it all come together!”

The stand design will incorporate new additions to the Impey portfolio including contemporary linear and square drainage grates, the Linear 3 floor former and AquaScreen X glass wetroom panels, as well as a selection of contemporary bathroom accessories from Impey’s Dutch sister company, Geesa.

The stand will demonstrate the varied portfolio of Impey products which are ideal for specification across all types and styles of hotel and cruise liner accommodation – including a practical demo wetroom.

Impey’s UK managing director John Blackburn said: “The growing popularity of wetrooms is testament to the combined flexibility and aesthetic appeal that they can bring to a showering space; making the wetroom concept ideal for hotels, spas and accommodation of all kinds.

“Tessa will also be joining us on the stand, so it will be a great experience for her to see the design concept she visualised, come to life.”
