One the hardest hit sectors is hospitality, as the travel industry ground to a halt and hotels, restaurants, bars and cafés were forced to close.Now, as travel tentatively returns and venues start to reopen again, the landscape is slowly getting back to normal, but things look very different to how they did at the turn of 2020.
And those changes don't only take in the need to wear a mask and keep distanced from people, or that surfaces need to be sanitised and people should wash their hands more frequently.No, the entire thought process behind venues of all kinds is evolving.
With new ways of life come new ways of thinking, and as hospitality design enters a new phase our sister title Commercial Interior Design is leading a session on the subject as part of the industry-leading Cosentino live! series of webinars.On Monday, August 9, a panel of top-level designers will get together to discuss the topic.
Taking part are Firas Alsahin, co-founder and design director of 4Space Design; Isabel Pintado, senior vice president of Wilson Associates (and number one on the Commercial Interior Design Power List 2020); Lee Worthington, managing director MENA, JPA Design and Vera Dieckmann, founder of XO Atelier.Join them and Jane O’Neill, editor of Commercial Interior Design, for the live and interactive session at 6pm, Monday August 9.
