Methven has been chosen to supply shower products for a New York City-inspired boutique hotel in Manchester that is designed to pay homage to “the Golden Age of New York City” with inspiration from the plays of famous Broadway writer Damon Runyon.

Squid Inc designer Oliver Redfern designed the interiors for Bespoke’s new Hotel Brooklyn, which will feature 191 rooms, a Brooklyn Heights rooftop bar, Runyon’s restaurant and dedicated events space that can accommodate 200 people.

Methven supplied its Kaha shower valve and Krome shower fittings in black for the hotel rooms’ ensuites, as well as the Methven Breeze wall-mounted basin mixer. “Hotel Brooklyn will be an edgy urban destination hotel and it was important for the brassware and shower systems to reflect this,” said Redfern.

“When it came to planning the bathrooms we opted for the Methven Black Krome collection as it was an excellent fit to the monotone palette of the unique angular en-suite pods.”

Redfern added: “A striking contemporary design was crucial when designing the en-suites, however it was also important that the shower performed well and delivered an invigorating experience, whilst being water efficient due to high-usage.”

Methven UK marketing head Simon Cornelius said: “We pride ourselves on our innovative award-winning designs and patented showering technology and we were delighted to work with Squid Inc on the en-suite design of the new Hotel Brooklyn in Manchester.”
