INNCOM’s Integrated Room Automation Systems Using Evora and Modeva Switches Lift Hotel Designers into Winner’s Circle at Hospitality Design Event
Leading interior design firms from across the US teamed with INNCOM by Honeywell to showcase their best creations for guest rooms and public spaces at the HI Connect design event in Nashville held March 25-27, 2015. Award winners, designONE studio, VOA Associates, and Chipman Design Architecture featured INNCOM's Integrated Room Automation Systems (IRAS) with Evora and Modeva switches for hotel lighting and comfort controls in their displays.
INNCOM partnered with several interior design companies with vignettes at HI Connect to provide solutions and suggest lighting controls and other guest room automation. "INNCOM worked closely with the design community to develop 'designed-in' integrated room automation systems for possible new brands," said John Tavares, director business development for INNCOM by Honeywell. "Three out of four of our design partners earned awards at HI Connect, including Most Creative Use of Technology by designOne studio. For us, enabling our clients to win is the best prize INNCOM can be awarded."
Most Creative Use of Technology Award
designONE studio won the People's Choice award for Most Creative Use of Technology. "INNCOM's capacitive touch Modeva is aesthetically pleasing and perfectly complemented our award-winning vignette," said Katrina Kostik, senior designer for designONE studio. "INNCOM's team was easy to work with and highly professional. Our award-winning outcome was well received and INNCOM was a large part of that." All winners were chosen by event attendees.
Most Inventive Vignette
Chipman Design Architecture worked with INNCOM to earn the People's Choice award for Most Inventive Vignette. Chipman Design Architecture Principal Patricia Rotondo said, "INNCOM was such an amazing contributor to our award-winning space. We valued their suggestions for lighting controls and other systems. Their products are as innovative as they are attractive. It was truly a pleasure working with INNCOM's team."
