SITU was commissioned to design and fabricate a grand reception desk and two matching concierge desks for the lobby of the Park Hyatt Hotel, New York. The faceted desks include wiring channels and internal cabinetry to support the needs of the hotel staff while also standing as sculptural features of the lobby.
The core of the desks are a CNC milled polyurethane foam with internal welded aluminum frame. The foam was then coated with a 0.5 inch thick layer of a machinable resin and then CNC milled a second time with the final faceted geometry, resulting in a 0.25 inch think resin hardcoat. The desks were then coated with a thin layer of a composite spray-on steel and finished with a black patina.
