Sofia Hotel is a luxury, 5-star hotel on Avinguda Diagonal in central Barcelona. It was completely refurbished using contemporary, high specification materials, including Formica Group DecoMetal® laminates.
A total of 2300m2 of Formica® laminate was used, alongside other materials such as ceramics, marble and natural wood. The Formica products were used in the foyer as well as the exclusive VIP floors above.
Formica HPL and Formica DecoMetal® in aluminium and silver are applied to the celling, in original suspended triangular sculptures forming mirrors in columns on the walls.
DecoMetal® laminate incorporates authentic metal in its surface. It is easy to install and maintain, and has the look of metal combined with the durability of laminate. It is also an environmentally sustainable product which has the GREENGUARD and Chain of Custody certifications, as well as the Carbon Trust label.
