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.

Estiluz designer lamps do not leave anyone indifferent, especially when staying in a hotel chosen by the client for its comfort and design. Their latest hotel projects in Belgium and Greece are a good example of it.In the heart of the Belgian city of Hasselt, we find the original "Hashotel” hotel, a tower of 6 floors, each staggered at least 60 cm from each other, creating a striking image and offering its guests penthouses, luxury suites and a high-end restaurant. The architectural firm UAU Collectiv, was in charge of this project with the ideaof creating an unconventional hotel to experience and discover. And Estiluz was a perfect fit for this type of space, which is why they decided to use several of Estiluz’s designer lamp collections.In the hotel lobby, the delicate ALFI suspension lamps , designed by the Estudi{H}ac studio, create impressive compositions, and their golden finish gives the room a luxurious feel.In the corridors and rooms, we find the ALFIsconcewith laser-cut signage, an option that Estiluz is increasingly offering in its wall lamps. In the rooms, a combination of theCIRC table lampand the CIRC floor lamp, two designs created by Nahtrang, which focus on simplicity, have also been incorporated. And in the hotel’s restaurant, the CIRC suspensionversion, beautifully proves how more than one ceiling light can be combined to create their own design.Both families of designer lamps, CIRC and ALFI, use similar concepts, making them perfect as complementary collections. The interior design work really gives this hotel the luxurious and high-end feel expected by its clients when carrying out the booking. It will undoubtedly be an unforgettable experience.And to enjoy a few days in the birthplace of democracy, the Niche Hotel, located in the heart of Athens, offers spectacular views of the Greek Acropolis. Throughout the hotel, you can delight yourself with a special decoration paired with the minimalist luxury of the rooms and the Estiluz lamps.The VOLTA collection, created by Nahtrang, is present in a wide variety of spaces. In the 33 rooms and 4 suites we can find the VOLTA sconcesplaced next to the double bed, accompanied by the table lampof the same collection on the desk. In addition, an impressive VOLTA suspension composition welcomes guests in the foyer and multipleindividual suspension lamps from the same collection hang throughout the dining room. The earth tone colors are complemented by the copper tones of VOLTA and the decorative arm of the  ASANAlamp. These are customized lamps for the hotel that build a décor full of ancient Greek influences.

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.

Caos hanging lamps at the VRBO Office in Austin, USA. Photo courtesy of a by arturo alvarez.04/15/2020Ever-Spectacular a by arturo alvarez Designer Luminaires Shine in the US

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.
