On December 14, 2021, the "Aile Est" (East Wing) of Geneva Airport (Switzerland) came into service. This renovation project represents a major improvement in terms of comfort and operational flexibility. The new facilities replace a space that was built for temporary use in the mid-1970s, and it was in need of change.This project has been possible thanks to the Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) architecture studio, who put their trust in Sellex to equip the waiting areas of the new facility. One of the company’s design icons, the AERO bench, was chosen, and the airport has installed two hundred and fifty AERO benches, including four- and eight-seaters, some with built-in side tables. All are self-supporting and upholstered in different colors with a visible stripe, to match the color scheme of each area and help travelers to find their way around.The AERO bench, designed by Lievore Altherr Molina, was identified by the team at RSHP as a product that met the quality standards required for the new facility. As Douglas Paul, Associate Partner in charge of the project says, the bench “fits comfortably with the structural concept of the Aile Est.”The renovated airport building is efficient, sustainable, and resilient. This has been achieved by installing seven thousand square meters of photovoltaic panels on the roof, one hundred and ten geothermal stacks for heating and cooling, an in-depth thermal performance analysis to eliminate cold bridges, energy efficient cool roofs, a LED lighting strategy with responsive control systems, and low water consumption using methods such as rainwater harvesting.Along with sustainability, durability was a determining factor in the project design. The materials used were selected in accordance with this criterion; all are low-maintenance and well able to withstand the constant flow of passengers. The finishes are granite, and transparent glass or back-painted panels have been used, depending on the area. You can see how the AERO bench is a perfect fit with the airport: seating that can withstand the test of time and is adapted to suit the different spaces. You'll find benches upholstered in blue, green, yellow, orange, red, gray, and purple.SELLEX is a furniture design company with 45 years of experience that has collaborated with designers such as Lievore Altherr Molina, Gemma Bernal, Mario Ruiz, Burkhard Vogtherr, and Carlos Tíscar, and has completed over a thousand installations in more than forty countries all around the world.  Photos Copyright Joás Souza: www.joasphotographer.com

Spanish interior design studio Bloomint Design has renovated one of the branches of renowned bank Raiffeisen in Nyon, Switzerland, outfitting it with several pieces of furniture by Sancal. Meanwhile, Bulgarian design studio Cache Atelier has also selected several of the Spanish firm’s designer products for the offices of Garitage Investment and Management in Sofia, Bulgaria.As part of the Raiffeisen bank branch renovation, Bloomint Design wanted to highlight the evolution of the entity since its founding in 1927. Designers were able to achieve this by integrating natural materials that reflect the origins of the bank with other minimalistic and industrial elements that show its evolution toward the future. In keeping with its origins, this 350-square-meter space puts the bank's current philosophy on display, with an open floor plan that represents the transparency of the bank.The project had a further premise: to make customers feel at home. To do so, they selected upholstered furniture by Sancal, such as the Alpino sofa and the Nido armchairs designed by Rafa García. Then, to intertwine it all with the project's neutral and warm materials, they used Beetle panels (MUT Design) and Pion tables by Ionna Vautrin to bring a colorful balance to the space.Hence, Bloomint Design has created a revamped version of the 1993 reception hall, where elements and materials from the past find a new home in a futuristic and innovative environment. For this Spanish interior design studio, collaborating on this project has been a completely new and truly exciting experience, as it was the first office renovation it has taken on.  The second project was the offices of Garitage Investment and Management in Sofia, Bulgaria. Bulgarian studio Cache Atelier wanted to create a tailor-made solution for these offices spanning 650 square meters. Without sacrificing functionality for appearance, the studio achieved the perfect balance and configured a cozy and pleasant environment. Sancal left its mark on the collaborative spaces and waiting areas, as the renovation blends the industrial style of the architecture with the soft textures of upholstered furniture. Here we find the Tiptoe sofas (Rafa García) and Tonella armchairs (Note Design), Sumo sofas and armchairs (Yonoh), Tortuga armchairs (Isaac Piñeiro), and Nudo coffee tables (Juan Ibáñez).

We traveled to two of the most visited states in the USA, for their climate, cities, attractions, and paradisiacal beaches: California and Florida. Starting this year in two of its glamorous hotels, we can find pieces of furniture of the firm iSiMAR.  On the beach in the town of Coronado, on Baja California's San Diego Bay, stands the luxurious Hotel del Coronado,one of the few surviving examples of American Victorian architecture in the country, which was chosen in 1977 as a National Historic Landmark (). Opened in 1888, it was the largest hotel in the world and the first to use electricity. During its more than 130 years of existence, it has hosted presidents, royalty, and celebrities and has been featured in numerous films and books. And now on the balconies of the resort's rooms, we find the solid ARENA table, created by the iSiMAR team to enjoy the views while having a coffee.  And on the other side of the country in Miami Beach, Florida, the BOLONIA table and MADRID stool furnish the bar and the interior lounge of the Strawberry Moon restaurant at the Goodtime Hotel. This hotel was designed by singer Pharrell Williams and local nightlife and entertainment entrepreneur David Grutman, along with designer Ken Fulk. The artist Pharrell Williams wanted to bring his positive energy to this hotel so that guests can have a good time in a space with an art deco aesthetic, located in a privileged location in the historic downtown of South Beach.And we crossed the border to the Mexican capital. The bar and interior lounges of theoffices ofthe well-known French cosmetics brand L'Oréal in Mexico City have been decorated with the OLIVO armchair, LAGARTO sofa, and MENORCA table collections. These offices located in Torre Mitikah were designed by the studio Oxígeno Arquitectura & IHO Espacios and are inspired by the Mexican landscape and beaches. That is why they selected exclusively outdoor furniture from iSiMAR and other Spanish companies such as Expormim, from which we found the NAUTICA swing created by Mut Design.Around 60% of iSiMar's revenue is from exports, and its main foreign markets are the United States, France, and the United Kingdom. In the U.S., it has a permanent office in New York to serve the U.S. market and subsidiary offices in London and Mexico. In addition, it has had a showroom in the Big Apple since last year.

The office furniture firm Actiu designs cozy and functional workspaces that support people’s well-being. An example of this would be their latest projects in France, Austria and Estonia.Solystic, the leading company in logistics solutions for the sorting, automation and distribution of packages, opened its new head office in the French city of Alixan in 2020. The firm prides itself on being a company with hardly any hierarchies, which gives employees a large amount of decision-making ability and autonomy and is committed to open and fluid offices. To achieve this, the architectural firm responsible for the project, Workfriendly, chose Actiu furniture to equip its offices and cafeteria. Two spaces in which they combined furniture in earth and oak tones with touches of brighter colors, such as blue, green or orange to achieve a warm and contemporary setting for work and relaxation.For the "open space” work stations the Vital Plus ST system and Mobility designed by ITEMdesignworks were selected, which, being height adjustable, guarantee the postural mobility and health of employees. Tabula tables and Noom chairs  created by the Alegre Design studio, which also designed the Cron chairs located in the two VIP meeting rooms, were installed in the offices for executives and small rooms for informal meetings. The cafeteria was equipped with the comfortable Wing chairs by the Ramos and Bassols studio, which together with their versatile Longo seating system and the informal Bend seats by Stone Design make you feel right at home.Hartlauer,  the optical and electronics chain opened their new head officein a historic building in the Austrian town of Steyr and Actiu has participated with its Austrian partner Sentup, equipping the open spaces of the office with the ergonomic Trim chair created by Alegre Design and the height-adjustable Mobility Step table. To make the meeting rooms elegant and welcoming, Arkitek tables and Noom 30 armchairs were selected. And one of the employee meeting areas has also been equipped with comfortable modules and tables from the Soft Seating Bend program and the Prisma high table, which invites you to have a drink in a relaxed setting.The new offices in Tallinn (Estonia) for the American company that creates Malwarebytes software are another example of Actiu's ability to adapt its products to different ways of working. The folding and height-adjustable office desks such as Mobility, the ergonomic and functional chairs such as Stay,  designed by Alegre Design, and in general the versatility of the Spanish firm’s products together with their Estonian partner Elke Mööbel,have won over this Californian technology company, which already chose Actiu in 2016 for one of the floors in its first home office in the country.

With 55 years of history, Kettal 's outdoor furniture proposals stand out for their design and innovation. “Kettal Living" attracts numerous international prescriptors who select its design pieces, created by world-renowned designers, for their most exclusive hotel and restaurant projects. We traveled to three Far Eastern countries and discovered their latest projects for 2020 and 2021.In China: 's 5-star PuXuan Hotel & Spa, located a stone's throw from the Forbidden City, offers spectacular views of the ancient Imperial Palace from the top of the complex. In the informal bistro on the outdoor terrace we can have breakfast comfortably seated in the Village chairs, designed by Jasper Morrison for Kettal. Likewise, the versatile Basket chairs created by Nana and Jørgen Ditzel add an elegant and cozy touch to the Lobby Lounge terrace and the Spa terrace, where we also find the Boma sofa and bench designed by Rodolfo Dordoni and the Mesh aluminum side tables by Patricia Urquiola.In Japan: Aman Kyoto Resort & Spa is located on land that is part of what was once an artistic community that gave birth to the revered Rinpa school of painting some 400 years ago. The complex is located within walking distance of the most visited temples in the city of Kyoto, such as the impressive golden temple of Kinkakuji. And blending into this restful space surrounded by forest, we find the Landscape armchairs and Vieques side tables, created by Patricia Urquiola. Further north, in the city of Kanagawa, the Vimini armchairs and Vieques tables, designed by Patricia Urquiola, encourage people to enjoy the refreshing sea breeze of Sagami Bay on the terraces of the Malibu Farm Zushi Marina restaurant.And to end our trip to the Far East: beds, tables and loungers from Kettal's Landscape collection offer a well-deserved rest at The Shilla Jeju Seogwipo hotel (South Korea). This hotel complex, located on the tourist island of Jeju, offers visitors a tranquil setting to break away from the routine of everyday life. The hotel is built in a Mediterranean style with a harmonious blend of European atmosphere, where the Kettal furniture fits like a glove.
