Studio Twist to announce contest at BD West conference

Studio Twist, a supplier of knit products for hotels, spas and resorts, is celebrating its fifth anniversary with a contest for the upcoming BDNY event in the fall. 

Studio Twist's "supplies durable, washable, top-of-bed knitted accessories that are anti-microbial, eco-friendly and thermal dynamic." The company's blankets, throws, bed scarves and pillows are knit in a variety of yarns and colors to work with a range of design themes. 

To bring its collection of patterns to life, Studio Twist has developed new yarn colors in their core PolyPropylene Yarn Atlas, adding chenille PolyPlush and--more recently--Space-Dyed yarns that add textural appeal and broaden the depth of the color palette. The company also developed the BedSok Box Spring Cover to hide box springs.

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

Studio Twist was founded and is currently led by Michelle Wildenhaus, who recently served as a Panelist for BDNY Power Players: Women Leaders in Hospitality Breakfast and Panel Discussion. This session showcased thought leaders who shared their insights in hospitality design, operations, investment and manufacturing at this BDNY signature event, presented in New York City, in partnership with NEWH.  

To celebrate this milestone and to say “Thank You” to the designers who have included them in so many key projects, Studio Twist will sponsor an Anniversary Design Contest, the winning design to be produced and shown at BDNY 2017 this fall. Details about the contest will be announced at BD | West, set to run April 5-6 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
