Dramatic elevators at South Beach hotel

Dramatic elevatorsBecause of its lasting beauty and minimal maintenance, sustainable stainless steel is being used more and more in elevators. For the elevators in the Shore Club on South Beach, located in Miami Beach, Fla., Morgan's Hotel Group chose Allison Park, Pa.-based Contrarian Metal Resources' InvariGlass Neues. The InvariGlass is framed with Neopolitan Plyboo, a three-dimensional wood layered in colors and textures that creates a dramatic look that is mirrored by the InvariGlass. The 3/4-inch-thick wood adds to the depth to the layered look. Hollywood, Fla.-based Vasile Elevator handled the project, which included seven elevators in four towers.
