Hospitality has taken a hard hit from the COVID-19 crisis. With revenue losses at an all-time high the pressure is on for hotels, bars, restaurants and health clubs alike to rebuild post-pandemic. The question is: how might this happen?
Lockdown measures are loosening, yet health and safety regulations impose strict new rules for seating capacity and trading hours. Social distancing will continue to affect the norms of service for the foreseeable future – and perhaps permanently. So how can designers approach these new rules of service and facilitation for convivial communal gatherings as we reach the post-pandemic era?
During the third edition of our #FrameLive talk series, we’ll ask leading hospitality designers and operators to offer their take on the new (hospitality) world order, in conversation with Frame founder Robert Thiemann. Read on for the details and how to sign up.
