Characterised by an extremely original and contemporary design, The Tour Part-Dieu – fondly named “the pencil” due to its cylindrical shape and pyramid top – stands out majestically above the rooftops of Lyon, near the financial district, a stone's throw away from the historical city centre.
It houses offices and commercial activities and the last seven floors are occupied by the Radisson Blu Hotel, a guarantee of excellence and well-being in the hospitality sector. Refurbished in 2016, this is the highest hotel in Europe. It features 245 deluxe bedrooms and 11 meeting rooms, all characterised by a breathtaking view over the city. Within the policy of granting innovation and a high standard of quality, and thanks to EUROPE 2000 and Birilo France work, Ceramiche Caesar has been chosen as partner for the supply of floor materials in some areas: a conscious choice, motivated by great technical and aesthetic value of the Made in Italy porcelain stoneware of Caesar. In particular, elegance and character come to life with Gate, the concrete effect series used for the reception and bathrooms. In its neutral Downtown tone, the collection gives a unique touch to the environments thanks to its rich texture, to create elegant surfaces that are never too bold. By combining a variety of sizes – from the large 60x120 cm to the smaller 15x75 cm, with the addition of the 60x60 cm square size - the reception area becomes dynamic in a totally original manner so that the spaces appear larger and more voluminous.
