Aluminum curtains by the Spanish firm Kriskadecor decorate the new VIP lounge of the Chilean airline LATAM, located in Terminal 2 of the Santiago de Chile Airport. The interior design of this space was conceived by Grupo Arquitectos, which views the lounge as a warm and cozy place for passengers to have a pleasant trip. The studio was inspired by the nature of South America and especially Chile and invites visitors to experience tranquility and reconnect.
This reconnection is done with the five senses. As soon as you enter the lounge, a 50-meter corridor provides a break from the bustling atmosphere of the airport. Once inside, elements such as specially selected music, an exclusive aroma and careful lighting connect to produce an intense sense of wellness in travelers. As for the materials, they all come from nature and are recyclable and environmentally friendly.
The VIP lounge is 4300 square meters, which are divided into three distinct spaces: World Member, Premium, and Signature, which are differentiated mainly by their colors. The largest room is the Signature, where copper and bronze and the geometric shapes created by Kriskadecor's aluminum chains are of note. The first of these is a large structure made up of three concentric cylinders of varying height that floats above the bar. Next to the restaurant area, there are also two pergolas embellished with a roof of hexagonal prisms, some of them concentric, which unify the space and generate a sensation that envelops the passengers contemplating them.
Once again Kriskadecor surprises us with its decorative solutions found in multiple projects around the world, such as the largest shopping mall in the Netherlands.
