IDEO's Design Green Hotel Concept
Design consultancy IDEO recently partnered with hospitality design group WATG to create a new model for the sustainable hotel suite. The concept was the winning entry in a design challenge from the US Green Building Council, and combines luxury, high-tech amenities, and a human-centered experience (it was designed by IDEO, after all!). The design, dubbed "Haptik," in reference to the Greek word for tactile-based experiences, features an all-off room switch, solar heat capture in the shower, a graywater irrigation system, FSC wood products, LED lighting, and more.
