Formica® laminate helps deliver a premium room experience inside the Snoozebox hotel in Cardiff

In association with

Design consultancy tangerine worked with Snoozebox to redesign its innovative portable hotel, specifying Formica® laminate to help maximise guest spaces and create a premium feel.

Monica Sogn, senior designer at tangerine, comments: 'Formica laminates offer a great range of colours and textures that helped create a premium feel for the hotel rooms. The material suits the needs of portability, offering a durable and easy to maintain solution that meets the appropriate fire and safety standards.'

Fossil in Rigato finish from Formica Colors was specified for the room’s feature walls to complement the bespoke textiles and give a sense of cosiness. To act as a blank canvas, Baikal, a warm neutral tone, was specified for all the walls and fronts of the beds. For parts of the ceilings, Soft White helped to create a sleek finish.
