The Wing


Featuring millennial pink and forest green décor and furnishings, The Wing, London, has been described as an interior designer’s Instagram-perfect fantasy. Set in a stunning five-storey Edwardian townhouse, the venue is the first overseas outpost of the American private members’ club where women can work, socialise, and connect. The unique identity of the complex was augmented by a plethora of Solus’ tiles, recommended by Area Sales Manager Jo Burley, which feature throughout WeWork’s design, beautifully complementing the soft pastel palette and European style that The Wing embraces. The feminine theme touches not only the fixtures, fittings, and furnishings but is also powerful and persistent throughout the entire composition, starting with the impressive reception area which personifies ‘pretty in pink’. Exposed brickwork in blush tones and a floral welcome desk juxtapose against the bespoke black and white scallop-cut tiles provided by Solus, while the company’s one-of-a-kind flower-print tiles provide a unique pattern in The Perch Café, inspired by architect Antoni Gaudi’s Casa Batlló building in Barcelona. Coral pink Maclain tiles from Solus’ Starlet range mark the start of an eye-catching apron around the stylishly curved bar, creating a delicate partition between the counter and the dining area. Solus’ tiles also feature in the exquisite fourth floor tearoom where authentic ornate chairs and trellis-inspired gridded walls offer a striking contrast to the chequered black and white of Solus’ Rila and Endicot tiles from the Palace range. Made with cutting-edge digital technology, Palace combines shades, veins, transparency, texture, and shine with natural colours to produce a refreshingly honest replication of genuine marble. Solus’ touch can also be seen in the stylish shower cubicles, where Arun and Atkins tiles from the Program range adorn the walls and Lena tiles from the Capital range grace the floors.
