Spanish firm Sancal, a manufacturer of contemporary upholstered furniture, has recently supplied pieces to the lobby of East Hotel, which is sandwiched between the buzzy areas of Kingston and Manuka in the Australian capital of Canberra.
This luxurious hotel opened last August with the aim of making its guests – who are surrounded by cosy, comfortable, contemporary furniture and benefit from the high quality, cutting-edge technological equipment of its apartments, workspaces and suites – feel like they’re at home. The fact that the hotel has wholeheartedly invested in cutting-edge design is reflected in its striking lobby, which has been furnished by Sancal.
The furniture here comprises Sancal’s Folk sofas, Soul armchairs, Rock tables, all designed by Rafa García, as well as various armchairs from the highly popular Tea collection, dreamt up by José Manuel Ferrero. All these stand out for their elegant simplicity, contemporary style, informality and for the Spanish warm, colourful vibe they inject into this busy area of the hotel.
Founded in 1973, Sancal has supplied its ultra-modern, upholstered furniture to hotels, restaurants, offices, bars and libraries in the US, Russia, UK, Germany, Spain, France, Austria and Switzerland, among other countries. Some of its projects include the restaurant Jaleo in Washington DC, the Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York and the Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom hotel.
