Tropitone’s Cabana Club wins design award for innovation
May 29, 2007,
The stainless steel collection is unique for Tropitone, which for more than 50 years primarily constructed groups with powder-coated aluminum frames, CEO Mike Echolds said.
“Since it can be recycled and does not require a finish, Cabana Club’s stainless steel frame is environmentally friendly as well as durable and easy to maintain,” Echolds said. “These practical features of the collection are complemented by its simple elegance, which is visually very dramatic. The response the collection is receiving as it debuts in the hospitality market is everything we had hoped it would be.”
Designed as a modular system, Cabana Club’s geometric shaped pieces can be reconfigured into a variety of seating arrangements and space solutions to accommodate the multiple use environments of resorts and luxury hotels.
The International Interior Design Association and Hospitality Design Magazine sponsored the competition, held during the HD Expo at the Sands Expo and Conference Center.
