Hotel guests experience perfect motion with Blum
If you're paying three figures or northwards of that for a hotel room you expect a certain level of luxury.
Apart from the obvious aspects like contemporary decor, light and airy room space and good bed...it's the details that impress the regular hotel stayer.
People away from home, business travellers and holidaymakers are delighted by the small, technical comforts and impressed by 'things' that work so well when they're away from home.
We live in a technical age where gadgets are highly prised and tend to impress and be remembered.
So when you unpack your luggage into internal or bedside drawers as well as wash bags and cosmetics in the en suite bathroom it is an emotion of pleasure and surprise when the drawers slide effortlessly outwards to a position of full extension - or even automatically in response to the touch of a hand, knee, foot or elbow.
When they close, fully laden, it's with the same sublime motion and the gentle cushioning of perfect soft close.
This is what Blum calls 'Perfecting Motion'.
Blum is the world's leading manufacturer of advanced furniture fittings and systems and for beautifully made wooden drawers in the context of a 21st century hotel suite. The basis for the 'Perfect Motion' is the peerless Blum Tandem runner engineered to run smoothly and perfection under full or empty load. Integrated into the Tandem runners is Blum's unique Blumotion soft close system.
The runners are easily fitted to the cabinet interior walls and the drawers are then simply placed onto the locking mechanism which also offers quick release for removal at any stage.
Blum products are stringently tested to outlive the life of the furniture so the hotel maintenance team can stand easy on this one!
Blum's latest advancement is Servo-Drive - an electrical auto-opening system for drawers, wardrobe pull-outs or any other incidental hotel room furniture is the ultimate wow factor experience for any guest.
Of course if the hotel designer is looking for a super contemporary look that may not call for wooden drawers, Blum's Tandembox range of products with the Intivo system for customised and individual designs opens up a world of options with the same, unequalled performance.
