Ocean Reef Hotel
In August 2017 we were contracted to perform a design outlook and revamp of Ocean Reef Hotel, in Zinkwazi, Durban, South Africa.
StudioMIC went full steam ahead, creating unique and custom items such as a new bar, restaurant experience, breakfast server, waiting area and lounge suite products as well as a reception desk. Other custom items we created were coffee tables, side tables, chests of drawers and a few other smaller items.
Our designs were custom designed and manufactured for the space, including bar, dining tables, reception desk, coffee tables, side tables, occasional table, breakfast server and more. Our coffee tables are part of our standard range and available from our website. The Hans Wegner chairs were sourced and used to compliment the natural and contemporary designs - adding to the sophisticated yet simple lines seen on the products.
We undertook to revamp the interior design and decor also. By way of hiring a photographer to capture the splendid natural environment offered to visitors of Ocean Reef, we hung prints of the surrounding area, on archival museum paper. We also updated the interior feel with new paint, indoor pot plants bringing nature inside as well as providing natural sisal carpeting to provide pockets of cosiness and comfort.
