One of an airport’s most exclusive spaces are the lounges which airlines make available to their most distinguished customers. Here they can find comfort and privacy, not to mention original design of the kind Avianca has provided for its most loyal customers at Bogotá’s El Dorado airport in Colombia which carries the signature of Spanish designer Francesc Rifé.

Francesc Rifé’s “Avianca Lounges” refurbishment project is designed to be a transition space which seeks to maximise the user’s experience through “layout and materiality”, based on a “balanced contrast of textures and volumes” which evokes a sense of calm. Spaces are arranged in simple, orderly lines which create a perfect dialogue with volumetrics, separating transition spaces from common areas for employees and two private rooms for customers, Gold and Diamond. Areas entitled “Enjoy your meal”, “Stay connected” and “Resting Area” feature tables, chairs and armchairs in ergonomic shapes, screens for privacy and a geometric auxiliary lighting system which mimics trees in a dense forest. In short, Francesc Rife has produced a sophisticated, restrained and elegant interior design project which envelops the traveller in a relaxing designer atmosphere.
 
All of Spanish design, the furnishings which enhance passengers’ working, eating and relaxation experience in these exclusive rooms include: BUD and SAM armchairs from Cármenes  created by Francesc Rifé, NORMAN armchair designed by Arnau y Reyna and SAL Y PIMIENTA sofa by  Jorge PensiCapdell  has made a chair called COL, also designed by Francesc Rifé, the CONCORD stool has been created by Claesson Koivisto Rune and the CULMEN table by Rafa Ortega; from  JMM, come NEO and KONG and from Blasco & Vila, RC stools and armchairs are also signed by Francesc Rifé. For lighting, WARM lamp has been designed by Ramos & Bassols for Vibia which has also made other bespoke lamps especially for the project.
