The designer furniture of the STUA brand is found in numerous projects around the world. One of the latest facilities is the lobby of the World Trade Center, a 120-meter-high skyscraper located in the center of the Dutch town of Almere, which offers direct trains to the center of Amsterdam and Schiphol International Airport.The Dutch architecture and interior design studio Huguette Crielaers and Marjolein van der Tol of Crielaers & Company had the main objective of turning the WTC entrance hall into an attractive meeting place for the users and visitors of this spectacular office and co-working space. The biggest challenge was to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere in such a space of enormous height and walking in different directions. The end result is an attractive and welcoming lobby for work, meetings or relaxation, where STUA furniture provides the warmth and design demanded by the place.In addition, the designers have managed to wisely combine most of the Basque firm's collections in this space, creating very attractive and functional meeting areas, rest zones and a new cafeteria. In the different areas of this lobby we find the GAS, LACLASICA, and GLOBUS chairs and the ZERO and LAU tables designed by Jesús Gasca, as well as the COSTURA sofas and armchairs, the LIBERA armchairs and the SOLAPA coffee tables, created by Jon Gasca.As designer Marjolein van der Tol comments, "The sofas and armchairs are soft and comfortable and fit perfectly into the warm and welcoming interior we had in mind. And to achieve this, STUA created a collection of fabrics and materials for their upholstery which allowed different combinations, including the one most used in this project, in pastel shades. Natural materials such as wood and upholstery were also chosen within a scheme of warm colors reflected in the floor carpets and curtains. The warmth and comfort of these STUA design pieces invite us to stay and enjoy this work and meetings space.STUA is a family business founded by Jesús Gasca in 1983, which designs, manufactures and distributes contemporary designer furniture throughout the world. The brand has equipped multiple facilities with its timeless designer furniture collections in which their son, Jon Gasca, also participates.

The Spanish outdoor furniture company Gandía Blasco has once again signed a major project with a Mediterranean feel outside Spain: displaying its unique style and careful design, it has furnished the roof of the LH The Bangkok Thonglor apartment building in the Thai capital, known for its bold wraparound glass facade. The facility, designed by Landscape Architects 49 Limited, has 31 floors and 150 apartments, and its design reflects the exclusivity of the surrounding area in its design. The upper floors were conceived as a luxurious common space for the residents, who can enjoy the swimming pool and the solarium located on the terrace/open air viewing platform, featuring spectacular panoramic views of the Bangkok skyline.This rooftop features some of the most representative collections from the Valencian firm, such as FLAT, designed by Mario Ruiz with its sun loungers, sofas, design throw pillows and white aluminum side tables. The Mediterranean style evoked by the collection combined with the unique environment creates a perfect atmosphere to relax, 30 floors up and surrounded by a sea - the pool - that blends with the sky over the Thai capital.The collection, created by designer Mario Ruiz, is joined by another from one of Gandía Blasco's young brands, DIABLA. In this case, the design of the monochrome white 365 sun loungers by Pablo Gironés and José A. Gandía-Blasco, inspired by the early models of the Porsche 356 from the 1950s, echoes the soft waves of the swimming pool and contrasts with the panoramic view of Bangkok's skyscrapers on the horizon.The building also features the TIMELESS collection by José Gandía-Blasco and Borja Garcia, which decorates the common garden spaces on the lower floors of the building. The armchairs with white aluminum frames, the teak wood armrests and the anthracite gray cushions blend with the green of the plants in the common areas, generating harmony in the space thanks to discreet, elegant and timeless design.GANDIABLASCO is the outdoor furniture brand of the Gandia Blasco Group, a family business founded in 1941. It designs and manufactures outdoor furniture with an architectural feel and links to its Mediterranean roots. Today the brand is present in over 90 countries and is internationally recognized for the quality of its designs, its passion for outdoor living and collaborations with prestigious architects and designers

Spanish designer furniture firm Sancal has furnished the One1 Offices in the city of Petah Tikva, very close to Tel Aviv, Israel, and the Sight. Coffee and Dine restaurant located in the historic district of St. Petersburg, Russia.Both installations were completed in 2019, and are examples of the significant international reach of the brand, which had already proven its strength on the foreign market with projects such as the VIP lounge at Gatwick Airport, London, the hotels Ovolo Woolloomooloo in Sidney, Australia, and the Generator in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and other offices such as for the firm Campari in Toronto, Canada.The 6100 square meter One1 Offices were developed by the EN Design studio and consisted primarily of furnishing the office’s break and eating areas, as well as other common areas. The design was chosen following the “ONE color / ONE function” concept, using gray as the chromatic unit for establishing an open, dynamic and creative space.A contrast with that dominant color was created by using upholstered pieces and auxiliary furniture from the brand, such as the La Isla sofa, different versions of side tables and Mosaico occasional chairs designed by Yonoh, Tortuga-type easy chairs created by the Nadadora studio, Tea, created by EstudiHac, and Meeting Point stools.Meanwhile, the Sight. Coffee and Dine restaurant project in St. Petersburg furnished a 150 square meter area and was carried out by Form Architecture. The restaurant layout divided the space according to the needs of the clients. A café area was provided at the front, while the back of the premises were set up for lunch.The idea was to design a gastronomical space creating a natural and relaxed atmosphere. To achieve that, the choice of colors was essential, in a soft pallet combined with the natural light that comes in through the picture windows. The original style was also included in the design, with concrete and brick walls. The project used primarily the silla40 chair created by Isaac Piñeiro from the Nadadora studio and the Magnum chair designed by EstudiHac for the brand.Sancal is a Spanish family business specializing in contemporary upholstered furniture. Their use of color and a timeless, eclectic style, together with the evolution of the style and value-added product design, are some of the foundations that make up and create the firm’s own style, far removed from conventionalism and the limitations of atmospheres in perfect harmony. All of that, and their dedication to people and know-how in producing their upholsteries make the firm a benchmark Spanish company.

The impressive pendant lamps from a by arturo alvarez brighten hotels, restaurants, offices, events and other facilities around the world.We present the latest projects carried out in one of the Spanish firm’s top markets: the USA, where their luminaires captivate the country’s architecture and interior design studios. The state of Texas is the site of two installations that display their designer pieces: the offices of vacation apartment and cottage rental company VRBO, in Austin, and the Calpine building in the city of Houston.The VRBO offices in Austin shine with the design and color of the Caos suspension luminaire. This handcrafted lamp with recycled cellulose cord has an organic and natural form inspired by the primitive state of the cosmos. Its form and colors seduced RCH Studios, which selected a composition of 15 lamps in a variety of colors to light several common areas in this space.Several miles to the east, in the city of Houston, the elegant and delicate Fluo lamps hang in the lobby of the Calpine building. This installation, designed by the Abel Design Group, is comprised of a composition of over 30 pieces distributed throughout the space. The Fluo suspension lamp is created based on shades made of painted galvanized steel mesh that are joined gracefully around a single point of light. It is a lightweight form that produces the illusion of sheer fabric, like a semitransparent tulle that reveals and hides at the same time, playing with the intuition of the viewer. This designer piece won a Good Design Award in 2009.This same Fluo lamp, in its largest size, also lights the Fairfield County Library in the state of Virginia. The lamp, made up of 16 pieces, creates a large composition that fills this space, designed by the Quinn Evans Architects and Tappé Associates studios, with light and elegance.  The a by arturo alvarez company was created over 25 years ago in a small workshop in the north of Spain, surrounded by nature, where elaborate lamp designs were handcrafted. In 2018, this workshop added a new facility in “O Milladoiro”, La Coruña, designed to improve the creative process for the designer pieces that are exported around the world.

 Winters in Canada, Russia and Estonia don't feel quite so cold when you're enjoying a relaxed meal in a restaurant featuring furniture by the Spanish company Capdell, which reflects the warmth of its home on the shores of the Mediterranean.In the restaurant at the Gardiner Museum in Toronto, the only museum in Canada dedicated exclusively to ceramic arts, we find the Eco chairs, designed by Carlos Tiscar and the MJ tables, bringing a touch of serenity and design to the space. The mustard-colored upholstery of the Eco chairs blends with the russet tones and natural textures of the wood and stone which adorn the walls of this eatery, led by chef Bianca Azupardo.In the restaurant “Under the Sea” in the Russian capital, Capdell's designs and use of wood bring the warmth of the "Mare Nostrum". The wooden slats which adorn the walls and the space's roof evoke the movement of ocean waves, and find a visual echo in the back, legs and shape of the NIX chairs, created by Patrick Norguet. These earth tones are rounded out by the shades of gray chosen for the upholstery of the chairs and by the MJ tables. The two furniture lines make this Muscovite restaurant an island haven.Finally, in the Puri restaurant, located at the Haven Kakumäe marina in Tallinn, the chairs and seats from the collection designed by Fran Silvestre look like works of art in this innovative, functional space. Here, near the bar, we also find the Flick stools created by Vicente Soto, which invite us to taste the kitchen's delicious offerings in a more relaxed atmosphere.

 If you were to dream of a heavenly place in which to relax, surrounded by a turquoise sea, it would probably look like the Maldives. The design studio Autoban created the interior design and some of the architectural elements of the exclusive Joali resort, located on the island of Muravandhoo, which is part of the Raa Atoll. To furnish the hotel’s lounge and the terraces of the villas, the studio chose various collections by the Spanish outdoor furniture brand Kettal.The studio designed this 5-star resort with the idea of fusing the indoor and outdoor spaces of this complex with the exotic and idyllic landscape that surrounds it. In line with the aesthetics of the islands – and using local materials, such as bamboo and coconut fibre – the design team created architectural elements based on traditional and artisanal techniques used by the craftsmen of the Maldives.The resort has 73 luxury villas, some on land while others are over the water. Each one has been beautifully decorated and carefully fitted out down to the very last detail to ensure that guests enjoy a unique experience. The design team were particularly discriminating when choosing the designer furniture, because it had to be both functional and movable. Kettal was the perfect choice as their pieces blend naturally with the Maldivian soul of this hotel complex. Basket armchairs, designed by Nanna & Jorgen Ditzel, can be found in the hotel’s lounge and outdoor areas, as well as on the terraces of the villas. Other Kettal furniture at the hotel includes Club armchairs and Cala dining chairs designed by Doshi Levien, sofas and tables from the Riva collection and Park Life dining tables by Jasper Morrison, and Mesh and Vieques tables designed by Patricia Urquiola. Once again, Kettal has been chosen to furnish a luxury hotel.
