Function rooms and suites are some of the hardest-working hospitality spaces. Catering for different types of guests, they have to be all-things to all-people – a show-stopping wedding venue one minute and a meeting room the next.
It sounds like a lot of hard work – but adapting a room is quicker and easier than you think. The secret of seamless set up is using multi-purpose furniture. At Burgess, all our products are cleverly designed to work in any space. They look in place, and not out of place, in all the main types of hotel room set up.
U-Shape and Meeting/Board room set-up
The informal and open U-Shape and traditional board room set-ups are used when you’re hosting corporate meetings.
The Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol Hotel used just two products – the Evosa Congress armchairs and our Configure-8 table – to achieve both these layouts.
The Configure-8 range is specifically designed for meeting room set-up. It’s lightweight to carry but also durable and strong thanks to its anodised aluminium frame. Its hidden clip system means you can simply connect several tables or corner pieces together to get just the right look. To add the finishing touch, the sleek and slim Evosa Congress chair was specified in an upholstered orange to match the room flooring.
The result is two distinctive high-end set-ups that suit all types of corporate client, achieved with only a couple of Burgess products.
Dining, Theatre & Classroom layout
The round table Dining set-up is mainly used for weddings and celebrations; Theatre is typical for large-scale lectures whilst the Classroom layout creates more of an intimate learning space. Again just three Burgess products have achieved all these styles at the Avra Imperial Hotel in Greece: The Fiora chair, the System-C table and the Slimfold table.
Our Fiora chair is the sophisticated seat of choice. Its elegant shape, covex frame and ComfortPlus cushion make it the perfect event partner for Dining, Theatre and Classroom layouts. Add a chair cover for a banqueting set-up or sit it side-by-side – it manages to work in all situations thanks to its multi-use design.
The System-C table gets top marks for Classroom layouts. Its folding legs and integral stacking buffers means it can be stored with ease.
The Slimfold table, seen in the Dining set-up, features our unique and easy-folding system but it’s the flock coated top which is one of its most clever features, helping to prevent tablecloth slippage. It also cleverly minimises sound, for example, during a wedding breakfast, guests won’t disturb the speeches when they place their glasses on the table.
This level of attention to detail is why you’ll find our products in some most prestigious hotels in the world.
