Equip`Hotel 2018 Paris
From 11 to 15 November 2018, ALISEO presented itself at the Equip'Hotel in Paris. The Equip'Hotel is one of the largest and most well-known trade fairs for restaurant, hotel and catering equipment and attracts more than 1,600 exhibitors and 113,000 visitors during the five day event.
In addition to presenting new products and selected items from its portfolio, the ALISEO team was able to connect with many customers, representatives, decision-makers and business partners from all over the world.
The virtual reality area on the ALISEO booth offered a very special experience. Visitors could move around freely in a virtual bathroom environment, interact with Aliseo products and take a look at the future of product presentation and object planning. For many it was their first encounter with virtual reality.
Another highlight of this year's show was the exhibition STUDIO 18 in pavilion 7.1, where renowned architects presented their sample rooms. ALISEO was also proud to showcase selected guest and bathroom items in the rooms of star architect Jean-Philippe Nuel.
ALISEO thanks all its visitors for many interesting conversations.

ALISEO RELOCATES CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS
To accommodate the ever increasing demand for its products, Aliseo has purchased and has begun renovations on a four floor 4,000 sqm facility in the historic former HULKA complex in Gengenbach, Germany. As well as much needed office space, the new location will feature a state of the art 900 sqm showroom, design studio and training center.
One wing of the expansive building will allow for community and special event planning such as the annual Aliseo Art Project.
Together with the existing 8,000 sqm distribution center the Gengenbach location will become the epicenter for Aliseo Germany. The office relocation took place in September 2015 and renovations are well underway for the remaining improvements.
ANTICIPATING THE FUTURE
Aliseo prides itself on “staying ahead of the curve“ by combining innovative designs with the latest technology. When appropriate Aliseo applies the precepts of Value Added Engineering (VAT) in the rational analysis of function in order to identify relationships that increase value. Information gathering, creation processes and product success evaluation are all part of this progression.
In 2003 Aliseo became the FIRST manufacturer to integrate LED lighting systems into their lighted mirrors. Tiny micro-dot LEDs dramatically increased the efficiency of the mirror – expanding the lifespan and opening up new design formulations - permitting a flat-screen design within a sleek thin profile.
In 2010 Aliseo continued to maximize the lighting efficiency of LED design with their introduction of the Luminox SMD (Surface Mounted Device) which integrates 3 LEDs into EACH LED module. This stabilized both the brightness and efficiency of the LEDs creating a much brighter and more focused light. In addition Aliseo’s SMD system was integrated into one heat resistant platform specifically engineered for a hassle-free “plug & play” replacement. No other manufacturer uses this system.
In 2012 Aliseo developed a Two-Tone-Lighting module which they engineered into their LED Cubik and Saturn lines of illuminated mirrors. Aliseo’s T3 system integrates two independent systems with different light illuminating pigmentations. This revolutionary two stage lighting technique bathes the skin in a shadow-free soft white or warm light for the most exacting cosmetic applications. Illuminated touch sensor offers the user their choice of a cool bright daytime look or a warm night time reflection.
A LEGACY OF INNOVATION
With an insight and appreciation of the trends and future of hotel designs, Aliseo has been a driver behind a new culture of globally inspired products specifically engineered to provide a new level of service and efficiency to the hotelier and a new level of comfort for their guests.
In 1985 Aliseo GmbH established its reputation as a trendsetter with its introduction of the "World's Safest Hair Dryer". A wall mounted model specifically designed to eliminate the hotelier's safety, security and liability concerns. Hotel Hair Dryers soon became an industry standard. In 1993 by incorporating newly developed safety technologies into a much smaller profile Aliseo proceeded to introduce the first pistol/holster hair dryer specifically engineered for hotel applications!
Since that time Aliseo has been at the forefront in the design and development of technologically advanced products specifically engineered to withstand the rigors of hotel applications and to ameliorate the safety concerns of the hotelier.
LOVE AT FIRST LIGHT
Developed for Aliseo by the German firm sieger design, the Moon Dance is an understated confident sculptural form that combines two geometric lines to create a hybrid visual dialogue. New forms and new materials are the focal point of the MOON DANCE mirror line.
A visual asymmetrical synergy is realized by using a rectangular arm to connect a circular acrylic housing with a distinctive round base. Unusual design language for an ergonomically intuitive solution; a frosted textured acrylic canopy allows for a backside ambient light for a warmer more personalized presentation.
Integrated touch sensor activates a specially engineered lighting strip that integrates SMD and T3 technologies. Two light pigmentations (a cool white and warm light) are integrated into one LED module offering the user their choice of a reflective imaging that simulates a night time or daytime reflections.
– A Commitment to Excellence –
As a leader in hospitality research and development, Aliseo has solidified their brand identity by continuously developing design-oriented, technologically advanced products that provide distinctive brand identity to the hotelier and a new level of comfort and convenience to their guests.
Items for a new hospitality culture where the sum of various products build a harmonic whole. An aesthetic functional setting for the pleasure of the guest and the benefit of the hotelier based on products that can turn a room into a rational, sensory and aesthetic statement of personalized taste.
To that end Aliseo has invested heavily in cutting-edge research that has allowed us to explore a “new way” of thinking via production techniques and material use in the development of product design.
In addition to facilitate the integration of our products by designers we have assembled all our items in most common CAD-formats for their review and easy implementation in their individual graphics and/or CAD program. In order to enhance their application they have been optimized with PaletteCAD - a German engineered 3D software. (Available to Designers upon request in our Interactive Portal or via USB upon request.)
Aliseo continuously monitors the evolving trends and demands of the hospitality sector by constantly seeking out the sentiments of leading hotel chains, interior and product designers and its own well established client base.
With nearly 30 years of experience and over a million installations worldwide, Aliseo enjoys a unique understanding of hospitality trends and needs - from design sensitivities and cultural considerations to electrical requirements and safety standards.
Here, in the Black Forest, where craftsmanship has a tradition, where it has been fostered and developed is the source of our experience and accomplishments.
