Lightweight Cladding

Air Canada

MaterialEramosa marble vein and crosscut with a polished finish.

In keeping with its Canadian roots, the Maple Room lounge features a Canadian limestone (contrary to its given name). Quarried from Ontario nearby the Eramosa River, this stone features deep browns with an almost woodlike appearance. Cutting this material vein and crosscut produce two highly different effects.

Lightweight cladding features extensively throughout as well as quartz surfaces.

  • Custom made pilasters and sleeper pods featured wrapped Eramosa around its edges to produce a monolithic effect
  • Reading areas contained bookmatched feature walls 2.4m x 1.8m large
  • Bathroom and Bistro areas featuring vein cut Eramosa throughout
  • Quartz countertops for bistro & dining areas

Thanks to its excellent design and finish, the Maple lounge won the “Best First Class Aviation Lounge” in the 2015 international yacht and aviation awards.
