Diffusion has recently supplied a bespoke air curtain and various fan coil units to the 5-star  hotel The Lanesborough on Hyde Park Corner, London. The hotel is reputedly the most expensive hotel in London and has accommodated visiting royalty, eminent politicians and entertainers.

The renovation work designed by world renowned interior designer, Alberto Pinto, has enhanced all guest rooms and public areas. It honours the building’s architectural heritage as one of London’s most revered Regency landmarks, and embodies the signature style that has become synonymous with The Lanesborough, whilst incorporating  contemporary luxury and technological innovations.

Due to The Lanesborough being a landmark Grade II listed building the recessed Savanna high performance air curtain had to be designed to fit within the ceiling constraints, plus making sure it was still an effective air curtain when being mounted at a height of 3.5m (FFL). Diffusion has supplied Highline 270, vertical highline 260 and vertical Lowline 420 all with energy efficient motors. These have been supplied to many various locations throughout the hotel such as The Queens Entrance, The Wellington, Great Hall Circulation and The Belgravia Room.
