Adding to a rapidly expanding international portfolio, Hotel Savoy is one of Newhey’s most recent projects. Situated in the heart of the diplomatic area of Prague, the luxurious 5 Star hotel has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment in 2015 leading to the reconciliation of its original elegance. The building, which was originally constructed in the 19th century was formally a cinema.
After being reconstructed into a glamorous hotel, the establishment now features 56 guestrooms and 6 suites. Newhey were challenged to design and manufacture carpet for the restaurant, bar, lounge, library, corridors, guestrooms and suites with the goal of paying homage to the Art Nouveau style of the hotel.
Newhey worked in partnership with professional floor layers Barkotex, based in Prague, to create stunning carpet designs to compliment the existing features of the hotel, which has since been listed as one of the ‘Leading Small Hotels of the World’.
The designs flowed beautifully through the hotel adopting the Art Nouveau style with a colourful palette of red, blue, green, yellow and gold. Inside the hotel you will find a host of guest rooms, suites and public areas rich with contemporary touches and traditional European styling.
The carpets were constructed using Newhey’s Colortec Tufting technology using computer yarn placement and features 80% wool / 20% nylon hank dyed pile yarns.
All carpets manufactured by Newhey feature ‘evobac’, a secondary backing system which utilises 100% recycled plastic bottles. This environmentally friendly solvent free thermoplastic technology creates an inseparable bond between the primary cloth and secondary backing.
It also guarantees against delamination and has at least 3 times the bonding strength of a conventional latex backed product.
