We offer a curated edit of what visitors can expect to see at Sleep+Eat
Design exhibition for the hotel industry Sleep+Eat returns to the Olympia in London from November 19-20 in its 14th outing.
Over the two-day period architects and designers will be able to see the latest trends for hospitality spaces, which will inspire domestic residences.
Featuring recognisable brands from the bathroom, the event will include industry veterans Bette, Hansgrohe, Kaldewei, Laufen, Roca, Grohe and Methven.
Managing Director of Hansgrohe UK Jay Phillips explained the enduring appeal of the event as an exhibitor: “Sleep & Eat continues to be a pivotal show for Hansgrohe, enabling us to present industry-leading innovations to a highly engaged hospitality design audience.”
Supplier of bathroom solutions and kitchen sinks and taps, Grohe will return to the Sleep & Eat 2019 exhibition.
It will showcase for the first time in the UK 3D printed taps, unveiled earlier in the year at German trade exhibition ISH.
With the launch of another ceramics collection, it will also be using the event to cement its status as a supplier of coordinated bathroom fittings.
Celebrating over 25 years of design, Axor will be showcasing its latest collection created by Jean-Marie Massaud – Edge.
In addition, Hansgrohe will also use the show, this year, to showcase its Rainfinity shower with large, convex head which can be tilted, eliminating the need for a shower arm.
However, launching at the show is FinishPlus – a selection of six colours across its Metropol and Talis E brassware collections.
Returning to Sleep+Eat, Laufen will be focusing on its New Classic bathroom collection created by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders.
This will be shown alongside the Save WC! developed by Eoos with the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Save! separates urine from waste water at source to reduce nitrogen pollution.
Joining these will be the Cleanet Navia shower toilet designed by Peter Wirz.
Colour will be a focus of the Roca stand at Sleep+Eat show this year, with coloured brassware and sanitaryware.
It will showcase its Everlux finishes for Insignia, Naia and Lanta brassware in a choice of Gold, Titanium Black and Rose Gold.
In addition, Roca will be displaying its Beyond sanitaryware made from Fineceramic which comes in a choice of Onyx, Beige, Coffee and Pearl, allowing designers to experiment more with bathrooms
Red Dot award-winning BetteCraft basin and circular BettePond bath will both be making their UK debut at Sleep + Eat.
The BetteCraft basin will be shown in some of the hundreds of colours available.
Also making an impact on the stand will be the new BettePond Silhouette freestanding bath.
The 1500mm diameter bath is reportedly the first circular bath to be created in glazed-steel.
It has been designed to take the form to new levels of luxury and elegance.
An array of finishes will be the story of the Methven stand as the brassware manufacturer unveils a choice of decors for its Türoa showers, tapware and accessories.
The collection will be showcased in gunmetal black, lustrous graphite and rich gold.
The Türoa collection also offers water saving benefits thanks to its V-Jet™ spray technology, with the shower delivering 9 litres per minute with wide-spray coverage.
