SCANDIC Sluseholmen, Copenhagen upgrades with a TWIST from Dansk Wilton
The desire to upgrade at SCANDIC Sluseholmen Copenhagen was the basis for a comprehensive renovation of both rooms and corridors. The hotel has ultramodern conference facilities and is very much a hotel for business travellers. Style and substance melt together to meet the demands of the modern nomad, and the innovative TWIST carpet from Dansk Wilton suits the purpose perfectly.

The architect behind the renovation, Erica Lundh Gerell, Krook & Tjäder, worked on new elements that were simple, luxurious and surprising. It is the small, fine details that make a difference – and she found a key difference in the concept of the TWIST carpet from Dansk Wilton:

“The carpet with the TWIST element promotes an exciting lighting interplay, since the TWIST effect is accentuated when the carpet is lit by both natural and artificial light. The effect of the unique threads in a subdued design creates a cosy atmosphere and brings out the sophisticated simplicity and lightness of the interior design” – Erica Lundh, Architect SAR/MSA, Gerell, Krook & Tjäder

The innovative lighting interplay is also present in the wallpaper that glows like a golden sunset when you turn on the light behind the headboard. The wallpaper reinforces the natural lighting effect from the windows and draws your attention to the beautiful surroundings.

Innovative carpet technique opens up new design possibilities
TWIST is a new carpet innovation from Dansk Wilton. The combination of hard twisted yarn and normal velvet yarn transforms the carpet into an exciting world of shimmering texture. This gives the carpet a velvety soft and distinct surface offering a luxurious and unique carpet solution. The special design technique provides the opportunity for hotels and cruise ships to stand out by adding inspiring depth to their carpet installations.

Old and new elements work perfectly together
When SCANDIC Sluseholmen didn’t want to launch a complete renovation, it was also very important that the new elements would work together with the existing ones:

”We think that the carpet solution, in terms of colours and materials, work extremely well for the purpose of upgrading the rooms. The light, subdued colours and the soft, luxurious carpet contribute to an incredibly relaxing atmosphere”, – Erica Lundh.  In fact she is so satisfied with the result, that she has selected DW TWIST for other projects.
