Internationally renowned H4 Hotels have commissioned premium carpet manufacturer Brintons to design carpets for luxury 4 star hotel, Hannover Messe.

Project: H4 Hannover Messe Hotel, luxury 4 star hotel
Brintons worked with interior design experts JOI-Design and hotel development
company Feuring Hotel Consulting GmBH on the renovation.
Brintons created bespoke axminster carpet for the hotel, as well as selecting a range of existing designs from Brintons’ well-known collections.
Brintons carpets can be seen in the hotel’s guestrooms, corridors, meeting rooms and ballroom – a total of 8,355 m2.
Location: Hannover, Germany, situated close to the trade grounds and expo fair venues, museums, the tourist attractions King’s Gardens in Herrenhausen and Lake Maschsee.
The themes of technology and nature informed the carpet selection, creating clean lines and a contemporary feel.
The chosen carpets are woven axminster designs with 80% wool 20% nylon pile blend, 7 row for the guestrooms, 8 row for the corridors, and a higher-pile 9 row quality for the meeting rooms. A beautiful 9 row design, for high traffic areas, was chosen for the bar.
H4 Hannover Messe Hotel’s renovation used designs from the following Brintons collections:
The Deep Grid collection by Studio Zuzunaga, throughout the corridor
Inspirations collection in the guest bedrooms
Brintons Cavan Plaid from the Abbeyglen collection features in the Irish Bar
Timorous Beasties Collection by Brintons, Gold Atholl Gardens design in the meeting rooms
Brinton custom designs in the restaurant areas of the hotel
Brintons have been commissioned to re-design the hotel’s ballroom later this year.
Comments from the team:
Heinrich Bohn, Senior Designer & Associate at JOI-Design comments: “The surrounding industry fairs played a central role in the original design inspirations of the hotel. With technical innovations evolving and no longer being an isolated field, technology is now merging more than ever with nature and the ideas that surround sustainability – IT and biology will continue merging in the future”
Nick Oakley, Brintons Sales Manager for Germany, Switzerland and Austria explains: “Our selection of Brintons premium axminster carpet for H4 Hotel, Hannover Messe gives excellent performance, unbeatable appearance and retention for many years, whilst importantly giving guests the pleasant, luxurious feel of wool-rich pile under foot. Axminster also has excellent sound absorption qualities, ensuring a quieter, more relaxing ambient stay for guests”
Azim Nabi, Assistant General Manager of Hannover Messe comments: “Brintons provided a reliable and quick service and accompanied us through the carpet selection process, giving excellent advice and providing a mix of technical and more ‘natural’ designs. The result is that each area of the hotel has its own individual feel, which is just what we were looking for.”
