(PRWEB) May 20, 2010 -- NanaWall Systems, Inc. announces the NanaWall SL60 is featured in the winning design of the first-ever Sustainable Suite Design Competition, a competition for interior designers to showcase the best hospitality design strategies that boast environmental responsibility while enhancing guest experience.
The winning suite was designed by WATG Architects and IDEO and will be on display at the Hospitality Design Expo May 19-21 in Las Vegas. The competition was sponsored by the U.S. Green Building Council, American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), and the Network of the Hospitality Industry (NEWH). Out of 65 design entries, WATG and IDEO took the top award for their suite, called Haptik (a Greek term referring to interactions based on the sense of touch).
The NanaWall is used in thousands of hospitality venues around the world in restaurants, conference areas, hotel suites, lobbies and more, from the Hotel Indigo in San Diego to Hotel Nikko in Guam to Whitetail Shore Lodge in McCall, Idaho.
The NanaWall SL60 large opening glass wall was used in the Haptik Sustainable Suite to connect the suite to an outdoor lounge and served to expand the space, provide fresh air and breezes and offer an unobstructed view. Some of the sustainable benefits of the SL60 folding NanaWall system include:
At the Hospitality Design Expo May 19-21 in Las Vegas, visitors can tour the winning USGBC Sustainable Design Suite, see the NanaWall Energy Star-certified operable glass wall system and meet the Haptik designers. See more NanaWall projects at the NanaWall Systems booth # 2563.
