Spanish company Ezcaray Internacional’s chairs grace the auditorium of the Philharmonic concert hall of the city of Krasnoyarsk, in the southern part of central Russia.The concert hall of the Krasnoyarsk Philharmonic symphony orchestra is one of this city’s most iconic venues, so the design of its interiors needed to reach the same high standard. While choosing materials, equipment and furniture for the project, the company opted for pieces that convey a sense of robustness and grandeur yet are also practical and functional. The Russian company Eurocreslo won the bid to supply 1,800 auditorium chairs which Ezcaray Internacional specially manufactured for the hall.For the project, the Spanish company proposed a natural modification of the Feup chair – the armchair chosen to furnish the concert hall. Elements of it were subtly tweaked, namely the shape of it sides and armrests, even though the chair’s original comfortable, light-looking design was retained. One of its most eye-catching features is its red upholstery which, moreover, changes tone and shimmers, bringing a sense of movement and vibrancy to the look of the room.One advantage of Feup is that it’s not too bulky. It’s particularly suited to environments that demand excellent acoustic properties, as an acoustic panel can be added to it in situations where the design of the acoustics box demands getting the best out of the space’s remaining features.Ezcaray Internacional has been manufacturing seating for assembly rooms, auditoria, cinemas and theatres for over 100 years. Its chairs can be found in leisure and education centres in Spain, Russia, Germany, Portugal, Malaysia, Singapore, the US and Finland, among other countries. One of the company’s most iconic projects has been its furnishing of the National Theatre of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.
The Basque Culinary Center is an institution set up in the Basque Country to protect the future of cookery as an innovative field and as somewhere for qualified professionals in the gastronomic field to train at a high level.Its HQ, in the technological park of San Sebastián, is an amazing building, designed by VAUMM Architects. Its interior features three of company Enea’s best-known collections: Lottus by Lievore Altherr Molina, Oh! by Gabriel Teixidó and Eina by Josep Lluscá. Also gracing the building is Enea’s Sisar tables – a new design – created at the request of the client for a particular purpose.For Enea, based in Guipúzcoa, in the Basque Country, the project entailed adapting to the needs of the client in terms of products and colours. Specifically, this involved giving its Lottus chairs and Oh! tables and armchairs an aluminium-coloured, matt lacquer finish, while the Eina chairs on castors were specially made to conform to the UNE 1729-1 guideline (which proposes an optimal ergonomic height ) as well as the aforementioned Sisar tables.Enea’s products are dotted around the building – in the training rooms, a multifunctional hall, the library as well as in communal areas. Teaching staff, students and visitors will all therefore be able to benefit from the comfort, elegance and warmth of these three well-known designs.Seventeen chairs with sled legs from the Oh! collection as well as 319 grey polypropylene Eina chairs on castors and 102 Sisar tables – special, multifunctional tables in melamine and white aluminium – grace the teaching rooms and areas.And eight armchairs with sled legs from the Oh! collection now furnish the relaxation and communal areas of one hall, while another 12 can be found in the VIP room. In addition, 306 white polypropylene Lottus chairs and 37 upholstered ones are used in the meeting room, director’s room and in various corridors. Finally, also in the corridors, are 17 tables with foldaway tops and six white cupboards with folding doors.Enea is a company founded in 1984 with the clear aim of offering contemporary designs suitable for all types of spaces (private spaces, offices, hotels, auditoria and conference halls).Since it was established, this company has maintained its position as one of the leading European manufacturers of chairs for public areas, thanks to its collaborations with such high-profile and experienced designers as Josep Lluscá, Gabriel Teixidó and Lievore Alhterr Molina.
Valencian company Viccarbe has become one of the most internationally renowned firms on the Spanish design scene. With a presence in over 60 countries, its products, which have a very pronounced functional, minimalist aesthetic, lend themselves perfectly to furnishing all kinds of public areas.Its most significant projects number furnishing New York’s Grand Hyatt hotel, the offices and VIP lounge of American Express in Mexico City’s international airport and those of Deutsche Bank in Hong Kong.One of its most recent jobs was a project undertaken by Kohina Architects & Vallila Interiors – the upgrading of the relaxation areas in Microsoft’s new offices in Finland. The multinational company’s idea was to introduce a new, more flexible approach to working which would both enhance the wellbeing of its employees and the company’s productivity. With this goal in mind, Microsoft’s offices were redesigned to create a variety of work environments and give its staff the freedom to use their PCs, webcams and smart phones wherever they wish.For this project, Viccarbe supplied its Aspa table. Designed by Francesc Rifé, this is one of the company’s bestselling products. It comprises a table which comes in three heights and has a three-legged base. Viccarbe also provided its Mass sofa in an enormous size – another Rifé design in a minimalist style that’s versatile and can be rearranged in countless configurations – and, finally, some of its Last Minute stools, designed by Patricia Urquiola. All these pieces render Microsoft’s Finland offices comfortable and ultra-modernWant to find out more about the project? Why not check out this video:http://youtu.be/Jjyp0LyeUso
