A beacon of blue, Tryp Hotel is a sophisticated hotel with a funky feel emanating throughout its interior design. We fabricated and installed the large blade sign that is mounted high for visibility amongst the many other large-scale signs populating the busy Manhattan street. The entrance is further skirted with two lit cabinet signs to ensure any guest can find their way home after a long day in the city. From classy brass to a pop of blue, we think our favorite sign might be the lobby directional sign.
When this hotel went through renovations, it remained classic and true to its 1895 roots. Such a classic and nostalgic interior needed signage that was equally charming in characteristics. We used a simple black and white design to display the traditional feel of the branding symbols used to define each room type. Beveled edges and sandwiched layers of acrylic, allowed the design to remain simple yet still impactful. Every detail was thought of, even down to the custom made “Do Not Disturb Signs.”
Located in the heart of Manhattan, the signs for Hyatt Times Square had a job contending with the surrounding signs, shouting from the neighboring buildings.
The Four Seasons Hotel brand is synonymous with elegance and luxury. As the signage fabricator and installer, we knew the level of quality required to match the property’s standards and were excited for the challenge. The many individual cut letters let the beautiful interior shine through. The challenging guestroom ID incorporated a doorbell and mounted seamlessly into an architectural recess framing the guestroom entrance. Coordination for this detailing was hugely important but nothing our experienced project managers could not handle. Through prototyping and engineering, the material matches throughout the space were dead on and the installation of such tricky signs went off without a hitch.
The POD Hotel has a minimalistic approach paired with a contemporary style. With so many “pods” or rooms in a small space, wayfinding was extremely important for guests to easily get to their rooms and back out to play again. Pops of colors were used to code different sections of the hotel and amenity spaces. The code signs throughout were simple and white, edged with the branding blue, while a little sparkle can be found in the guestroom entry signs. You certainly will not miss its entrance as it is framed with a long thin blade in the branding blue along with the deepest fabricated letters we have ever produced.
Taking a step back in time can be an exciting and challenging assignment. At the TWA Hotel, we were tasked with matching historical as-built drawings from the 60s as well as updating to today’s manufacturing. All the while, we had to incorporate a new design for code required signs throughout the renovated flight center to the newly built hotel wings and event center. Three distinctly different interiors tied together by a consistent signage package.
Designed for rejuvenation, the color palette and sign design for Equinox Hotel was “dark, quiet and cool.” The logo at the entrance required our extensive knowledge of fabrication in order to ‘float’ the top part of the “O” and ensure the large fabricated letters were structurally sound and matched the curve of the canopy. With many individual cut letters, our installation in the interiors had to be on point and accurately leveled.
