 Winters in Canada, Russia and Estonia don't feel quite so cold when you're enjoying a relaxed meal in a restaurant featuring furniture by the Spanish company Capdell, which reflects the warmth of its home on the shores of the Mediterranean.In the restaurant at the Gardiner Museum in Toronto, the only museum in Canada dedicated exclusively to ceramic arts, we find the Eco chairs, designed by Carlos Tiscar and the MJ tables, bringing a touch of serenity and design to the space. The mustard-colored upholstery of the Eco chairs blends with the russet tones and natural textures of the wood and stone which adorn the walls of this eatery, led by chef Bianca Azupardo.In the restaurant “Under the Sea” in the Russian capital, Capdell's designs and use of wood bring the warmth of the "Mare Nostrum". The wooden slats which adorn the walls and the space's roof evoke the movement of ocean waves, and find a visual echo in the back, legs and shape of the NIX chairs, created by Patrick Norguet. These earth tones are rounded out by the shades of gray chosen for the upholstery of the chairs and by the MJ tables. The two furniture lines make this Muscovite restaurant an island haven.Finally, in the Puri restaurant, located at the Haven Kakumäe marina in Tallinn, the chairs and seats from the collection designed by Fran Silvestre look like works of art in this innovative, functional space. Here, near the bar, we also find the Flick stools created by Vicente Soto, which invite us to taste the kitchen's delicious offerings in a more relaxed atmosphere.

 If you were to dream of a heavenly place in which to relax, surrounded by a turquoise sea, it would probably look like the Maldives. The design studio Autoban created the interior design and some of the architectural elements of the exclusive Joali resort, located on the island of Muravandhoo, which is part of the Raa Atoll. To furnish the hotel’s lounge and the terraces of the villas, the studio chose various collections by the Spanish outdoor furniture brand Kettal.The studio designed this 5-star resort with the idea of fusing the indoor and outdoor spaces of this complex with the exotic and idyllic landscape that surrounds it. In line with the aesthetics of the islands – and using local materials, such as bamboo and coconut fibre – the design team created architectural elements based on traditional and artisanal techniques used by the craftsmen of the Maldives.The resort has 73 luxury villas, some on land while others are over the water. Each one has been beautifully decorated and carefully fitted out down to the very last detail to ensure that guests enjoy a unique experience. The design team were particularly discriminating when choosing the designer furniture, because it had to be both functional and movable. Kettal was the perfect choice as their pieces blend naturally with the Maldivian soul of this hotel complex. Basket armchairs, designed by Nanna & Jorgen Ditzel, can be found in the hotel’s lounge and outdoor areas, as well as on the terraces of the villas. Other Kettal furniture at the hotel includes Club armchairs and Cala dining chairs designed by Doshi Levien, sofas and tables from the Riva collection and Park Life dining tables by Jasper Morrison, and Mesh and Vieques tables designed by Patricia Urquiola. Once again, Kettal has been chosen to furnish a luxury hotel.

 Vondom continues to expand impressively in the Chinese design-project market. We are delighted to unveil the latest luxury hotels and facilities furnished with design pieces by the Spanish firm.Our journey in China begins at Sheshan Mountain, 50 kilometres from the cosmopolitan city of Shanghai. November 2018 saw the inauguration of the exclusive InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland hotel, a stunning 18-storey resort whose architecture is in perfect harmony with its natural surroundings. Buried some 90 metres deep in an old quarry – with only two floors above ground level – it is believed to be the deepest hotel in the world.  ATKINS was the brain behind the design of the concept and the façade, while the interior design was undertaken by CCD/Cheng Chung Design. To enhance the feeling of harmony and serenity of this space, Vondom chose to use pieces from collections by designers Ramon Esteve (Faz and Ulm), Javier Mariscal (Mora), and by Archirivolto (Fiesta).Designed by the renowned firm Zaha Hadid Architects, the spectacular Morpheus hotel opened in Macau in June 2018. The huge, twisting geometric façade – which makes this 40-storey building unique – is its hallmark feature, allowing you to pinpoint the hotel from anywhere in the city. Vertex chairs, created by Karim Rashid, imbue the lobby of this artistic and sculptural hotel with modernity, elegance and refinement.In 2019, Vondom also provided furniture for the WAITAN-BFC gym in Shanghai, and for the Vanke Longcheer Yacht Club.Founded in 1998, the Vanke Longcheer Yacht Club is located between the Dapeng Peninsula and Daya Bay. It has been used as the competition’s base for the China Cup International Regatta for six consecutive years. Designed by the well-known dock manufacturer, Bellingham Marine, and the Deson design studio in Shenzen, the main building’s facilities include the club house, apartments owned by members, a breakwater, yacht berths, and yacht repair workshops and facilities. Collections supplied by Vondom grace the outdoor terraces and the open-air platform on the first floor of this luxury yacht club: And created by Fabio Novembre, Sabinas designed by Javier Mariscal, Biophilia by Ross Lovegrove, Bum thought up by Eugeni Quitllet, and Ulm.  The WAITAN-BCF gym covers 3,000 square metres and is located high up in Shanghai’s Bund Financial Center.

 The new Postillion Hotel in Amsterdam is furnished using pieces offered by the Spanish firm Capdell.  This hotel’s goal is to make its guests feel as comfortable and happy as they would be in their own homes.

The orange version with a skid base can be found in the meeting and work space in the hotel lobby, where it provides both comfort and aesthetic appeal. Another featured chair is the “Nix”, created by Patrick Norguet, a piece that won the Good Design Award in 2018 and the Red Dot Award in 2019. It brings together comfort, versatility and elegance through an iconic design that combines work in solid wood with curved plywood 3D spherical geometry. Another one of the chosen chairs is “She” designed by Carlos Tiscar, a solid oak piece with an upholstered back and seat. Its internal geometry features subtle contrasts that bring together vertical and slightly angled lines.Finally, in the common areas, the interior designers chose “Concord” stools designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune.This hotel, which features voice-controlled rooms, has recognised the value that both design and technology add to the guest experience. Capdell seating provides the contemporary design aesthetic that the hotel wants to bring to its customers.
