The four storey New Brighton Hotel in Manly has undergone a significant overhaul with a bold contemporary edge that belies its heritage exterior. The brief called for an edgy feel that complemented the seaside location but was up to the task of managing high traffic and at times the harsh costal elements. KE-ZU provided a selection of indoor/outdoor appropriate pieces from Italy and Spain. Smart, dual purpose furniture was the order of the day with Paola Navone's Ivy collection for EMU represented in the Ivy Sofa and Ivy solar powered illuminating side-table.  The Moma Low tables from Javier Mariscal and Vondom also house LED internal illumination and integrated ice bucket for wine and refreshments. Good, practical, durable fun.
