Pretty in red: Design studio Graven created the look of the “Radisson Red” city hotel in Brussels’ European Quarter. The hotel comprises 149 studios realized in three different ways with a casual and playful atmosphere: Referencing the city’s long history of comic illustration, part of the walls and furniture are adorned with large format drawings by comic book artists Wauter Mannaert and Max De Radigues. The bathroom walls feature mosaic tiles arranged to form melon and apple shapes – a tongue-in-cheek allusion to the work of Belgian painter René Magritte.

The hotel’s proverbial red thread returns in the bathrooms as red grout, which provides a perfect stage for the Villeroy & Boch sanitary ceramics used: With their delicate, retro-style base frames, the “Metric Art” vanity washbasins combine nostalgic design with superb hygiene. In-keeping with the formal language of the interior design, Graven chose ultra-flat, rimless shower trays from the “Architecture MetalRim” series by Villeroy & Boch, as well as rimless “Subway 2.0” toilets with “DirectFlush” technology. This ensures the entire basin is flushed while water consumption is kept to a minimum. Deep basins, generous storage space and the great variety of models available guarantee a pleasant usage and individual flexibility for the rooms. (am)
