Design – Lodges From Meubles Hotel
These “Lodges” from Meubles-Hôtels are environmentally-friendly, wood-framed structures with wood fibre or Biofib insulation (French standards RT2012), that can be installed anywhere. They provide high-level comfort, at least comparable to a 4-star hotel room, and come well appointed. They can be installed in record time and used immediately, and are wheelchair accessible. The concept is scalable to meet any needs, up to the construction of a full hotel.

Well-being – Elmer
Elmer is an Italian-style shower that dares to take technology, safety and environmental concern to a whole new level.
• A sensory experience: the showerhead uses micro-drops to release an enveloping, environmentally-friendly flow of water.
• A scented experience: includes an essential oil diffuser for all the benefits of a built-in spa.
• A smart experience: programme flow and temperature, control water consumption, voice-activated control.
• An audio experience: a sound system turns the materials into a speaker.
The freestanding structure and shower tray with the built-in frame means that it takes under 3 hours and no heavy work to install. With 4 models, 12 dimensions, 12 colours and textures and a number of options and functions to choose from, it is also fully customisable.

Technology – Eelway
Managing items that are left behind can be repetitive, time-consuming and expensive for hotels. During busy periods, this kind of task often gets forgotten, badly impacting customer satisfaction. Eelway is a start-up that develops Customer Experience services and tools and has created a management platform for shipping forgotten items and baggage left in hotels. Eelway lets customers go online and choose their transporter, insurance policy and delivery time, pay and then track their item with ease.

The Swedish YouBed is the first bed with integrated pocket springs for adjustable firmness to meet the individual comfort preferences of any and every guest, without compromising on quality.
