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.
