Vondom, the prestigious Spanish company that specialises in outdoor furniture and homeware, has supplied furniture to the swimming-pool area of Singapore’s five-star hotel W Singapore – Sentosa Cove.
Undertaken in 2012, the project saw Vondom furnish the chill-out area of this luxe hotel’s swimming pool with its Pillow collection. Created by renowned Italian designer Stefano Giovannoni, this features armchairs, tables and pouffes, all illuminated from within and so doubling as lighting.
The 1,338 m sq swimming pool is one of the hotel’s highlights: exuding glamour, it invites guests to relax and drink in the breathtaking, panoramic view from the hotel of the South China Sea. At night, the Pillow collection glows in the dark, creating a spectacular atmosphere where people can chill and enjoy a magical evening. The stunning combination of materials, lighting, interior and furniture design and scenery around the pool reflects the subtlety and level of attention to detail paid by the other companies involved – Singapore-based landscape architect Cicada Pte Ltd and XTRA Designs Pte Ltd, which specialises in outdoor furniture.
Giovannoni’s Pillow collection wittily simulates comfortable, squashy cushions and, like many of his designs, they’re life-enhancing and ergonomic. Like all Vondom’s products, Pillow is suitable for outdoor use, and even for harsh weather conditions, since it’s made of rotational-moulded polyethylene, a plastic that meets the strictest technical standards.
Vondom’s cutting-edge pieces, designed by such internationally renowned designers as Stefano Giovannoni, Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, Javier Mariscal, Karim Rashid, A-cero, Teresa Sapey and Ramón Esteve, among others, grace high-end hotels, private residences, offices and public spaces and leisure centres in China, the US, UK, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Russia, Australia, Germany, Italy, Croatia, Sweden, Austria and Spain, among other countries. In fact, its innovative furniture, lighting and plant-holder collections are sold in over 70 countries.
