Mediterranean ash: mafi refines the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Athens with a COR ASH natural wood floor


A total of 309 rooms, several restaurants, meeting rooms, a spa, and mafi natural wood floors await guests at the new Grand Hyatt Hotel in Athens. Brushed and oiled floors in a graphite gray in the COR ASH series underscore the modern ambience of the hip penthouse restaurant with views of the Acropolis.

COR ASH by mafi is not only an excellent choice for bright and modern rooms thanks to its appearances, the resilience of ash makes these wood floors ideal for high-traffic areas such as restaurants.

When laid extensively in a space, a natural wood floor like COR ASH improves the indoor climate, acting like a small air conditioning machine if wet-mopped regularly, and is also anti-static.

Healthy room climate supports well beeing

mafi's COR ASH has already proven itself the ideal natural wood floor for modern, light and airy spaces.

The look of the wood is rather restrained with few knots and a calm, yet clearly recognizable grain. In addition, the boards are free of harmful substances and allergens.

Biophilic Design in practice

In a brushed and oiled graphite gray, the boards in the Grand Hyatt's penthouse restaurant provide clean lines and balance. In general, wood paired with the stone tabletops is the preferred design element in the restaurant. Combined with lavish floral decor, the space takes on the character of a Mediterranean garden high above the rooftops of Athens.

The large, floor-to-ceiling windows also provide plenty of natural light. These lend the room a warm, pleasurable atmosphere which invites guests to linger. The concept is based on biophilic design, which seeks to create natural or near-natural spaces for humans.

By deliberately integrating nature into interior and architectural designs, we are gradually bringing nature back into our built environment.

The resistant Ash

COR ASH by mafi is not only an excellent choice for bright and modern rooms thanks to its appearances, the resilience of ash makes these wood floors ideal for high-traffic areas such as restaurants.

COR ASH is available from mafi in the usual board lengths of 1800, 2000, and 2400 mm. Plank widths include 155, 185, and 240 mm.

The planks, like all mafi natural wood floors, are manufactured in a symmetrical three-layer structure, thus maintaining their inimitable stability.
