Radisson Blu Edwardian London, Heathrow Hotel unveils ‘Brain Box’ Room
Leading meeting facility has been designed with the latest technology designed to boost creative thinking

LONDON, 7th February 2017: This month, the Radisson Blu Edwardian London, Heathrow hotel, owned and managed by Edwardian Hotels London, launches its ‘Brain Box’ room. The new facility provides an innovative meeting space designed to encourage and inspire guests’ working efficiency and creative thinking using clever design and technology.

The breakout room caters to all kinds of creative minds – combining simple creative solutions such as flexible furniture layouts and Squiggle glass, allowing you to write ideas on walls; clever technology such as Barco Click, the USB connected button allowing you to share your screen in one click, and Samsung 65inch touch screens. This unique offer provides an ideal environment for flexible working, brain storm sessions and more traditional meetings.

The features and design of the room are based on the growing trend for environments that encourage innovative ideas. According to recent research, 65% of people feel that environments designed to enhance thinking have a positive impact on the performance of their organisation. In addition, 95% found that these spaces consistently provide better ideas, solutions and decisions, productive working relationships and produce a positive impact on performance indicators or organisations.

Simon Wong, General Manager, Radisson Blu Edwardian Heathrow, said: “The Radisson Blu Heathrow has always prided itself on providing excellent meeting space near the UK’s largest travel hub, making it a convenient choice for international visitors as well as domestic. However, now we’re able to build on that experience and offer a unique and exciting space with the latest technology to become a catalyst in creative thinking and work.”

The space utilises multiple forms of interaction, including VGA and HDMI cables for presentations, as well as Microsoft Skype Business applications and Freeview TV, Sony PlayStation, Xbox and Blu Ray, the combination of which allows for meetings to be more efficient, engaging and spontaneous.

Based on the famous quote from Albert Einstein, ‘we cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them’, the space can be modified from a standard meeting set-up to a creative environment depending on individual needs.

Edwardian Hotels London has previously been announced as the first hospitality group to partner with Imperial College London’s Business School.

Bruno Cotta, Director of Imperial’s new Enterprise Lab and Visiting Fellow at the School, commented: “Having a variety of technology diversifies not only the way people communicate with each other, but also the way they communicate with those not present. It is good to see not only the next generation of work related technology incorporated into this space, but also the consumer platforms. It often helps that users see familiar tech from the home environment, to break down barriers and encourage more relaxed, original thinking. We use a similar approach at the Enterprise Lab, where staff, students and visitors can engage with personalised technology such as Amazon’s Echo, but also state-of-the-art and life-size touch screen displays that get them out of their chairs and thinking on their feet.”

The May Fair Hotel Christmas Window Brings All Of Mayfair Community Together
Interactive luxury advent calendar designed to showcase some of the districts world-renowned brands

LONDON: Today, The May Fair Hotel reveals its collaboration with a range of local Mayfair businesses as it unveils its Christmas Window display in the form of an interactive advent calendar.

Uniting business partnerships across the Mayfair district, the calendar will go live on 1st of December, revealing the very best of Mayfair’s community including Temperley, La Perla and Sophia Webster who will all be offering a gift or store experience to guests of the hotel or members of the public each day. Members of the public will have the chance to win the selected gift each day using #AMayFairChristmas.

The Mayfair district continues to be an attractive destination for tourists and international shoppers and the concept behind The May Fair Hotel’s window design is to showcase some of the world-renowned brands within the Mayfair community.

The installation has been created in collaboration with renowned artist Terry Jackson. Well known for his unique and distinctive paper-cut art, Jackson’s previous Christmas window display has been featured within the top 10 in the world along with Claridge’s, Sak’s Fifth Avenue and Tiffany’s New York.

The elegant design, crisp white in colour, features a cityscape silhouette referencing London, with subtle hints to the time of year. The finished installation will be illuminated, giving definition to each layer as the light gradually radiates through. The final effect will be a stunning three-dimensional silhouette.

Inderneel Singh, Managing Director, The May Fair Hotel said “The May Fair Hotel has always been known for our designer windows during London Fashion Week. This year we’re excited to extend our window collaboration into the Christmas season, working with globally recognised brands all from the Mayfair district and welcome visitors to come and see the display and post on social media using the hashtag.”

Sophia Webster said, “This a great opportunity to bring the Mayfair community together during this special time of year, and we are proud to be a part of this innovative Christmas campaign with The May Fair Hotel.”

Nicole Farhi also said, ‘To celebrate such a wonderful time of year we are honoured to be partnering with the Mayfair hotel and collaborating with other business’s and brands within in our local community. We look forward to welcoming the lucky winner to our Conduit Street or Hamstead stores for a personal shopping experience and a £350 gift card to spend on our beautifully curated collections. Season’s greetings from the Nicole Farhi team’

Pickett stated, “We enjoy working with like-minded British brands who value the importance of customer service alongside a quality product. Edwardian Hotels London and Pickett (and the teams around them) are committed to making their customers and guests feel welcome, with a sense of belonging and an overall feeling of a special experience. We are delighted to be associated with the making of this advent calendar which Edwardian Hotels London are offering their customers as a thank you for their support over the year.”

Terry Jackson added, “For many, the hotel is a focal point of Mayfair and from a personal perspective it’s a fabulous space, with an international audience and a great opportunity to show case my work. Paper is a humble material, one of craft, provoking memories of wrapped presents and hand-written letters and the installation aims to preserve the comfort and romance of the home Christmas and hopefully inspires gift ideas for loved ones this holiday season.”

Alongside Sophia Webster, Nicole Farhi and Pickett, The May Fair Hotel has collaborated with luxury women’s fashion boutique Temperley London, luxury book store Maison Assouline, fine jeweller Stephen Webster*, one of the oldest pharmacies in the world Santa Maria Novella, Italian intimate apparel La Perla, highly-regarded skincare specialist Lisa Franklin*, chic hair salon FOUR London, contemporary art studio Gazelli Art House, French bakery and sweet maker Laduree, eye-catching shoe designer Aquazurra, luxury backgammon designer Alexandra Llewellyn*, cold-pressed juice café Raw Press, personal trainer Matt Roberts, alternative luxury fashion designer Chalayan, the newest jeweller to Mayfair Kat Florence, hand-crafted leather designers Passavant & Lee*, boutique perfumery Miller Harris, Italian intimate apparel La Perla, styling boutique Nails and Brows and the longest serving jewellery house in the world House of Garrard*.
