Milan Design Week has made its return. Marcel Wanders MILAN DESIGN WEEK 2022

After two years, the famous Milan Design Week has made its return. Marcel Wanders studio had the honour to introduce new, bold and unique designs in collaboration with FENDI CasaFLOSUp To You AnthologyFIAMNatuzziDevon&Devon and Sahrai.

Designs by the studio were also to be seen at MoooiQeeboo, and Objets Nomades exhibition by Louis Vuitton.

Marcel Wanders studio’s first collection for FENDI Casa subtly translates signature design elements found in the FENDI fashion archives into an elegant interior setting. By adapting a metaphysical approach in the creation of these pieces, inspiration was drawn from Italian heritage, embracing its rich art, culture and craftsmanship using locally sourced glass, stone and textiles. This extensive collection consists of two mirrors, dining table, arm and lounge chairs, bed, sofa, as well as a sub-collection of lamps, exquisitely crafted with Murano glass.

The studio also proudly presented its newest creation for FLOS, Skynest. By weaving filaments of light, this unique lamp seamlessly combines both elegance and innovation.

Delicate textile tubes, integrated with LED lights, reminiscent of thread, are woven throughout the design of the lamp; creating a unique element of surprise, which challenges the bulb lighting archetype. This beautifully innovative lamp is available in four different colourways and in various models including Pendant, Ceiling, Wall and Ceiling to Floor variants.

“We are poets, secretly engineering” – Marcel Wanders, Creative Director, Marcel Wanders studio on Skynest Marcel Wanders studio also launched two new handbags in collaboration with Up To You Anthology: New Classic and Bouquet. This innovative brand creates unique designer bags originated from the creative energy of the most visionary talents in Architecture, Design and Art worldwide, and handcrafted by the best Italian artisans.

The Cristaline dining table designed for FIAM exemplifies subtle beauty and grace by experimenting with the unique technology of melting and forming glass, to create an intricate surface pattern which illustrates geometry and nature through a complex floral pattern translated to an elegant dining table.

Marcel Wanders studio celebrated the launch of its fourth collaboration with Natuzzi. Presenting the Adam collection, with a focus represented by the Adam sofa, born from the desire to integrate sustainable materials with a timeless design inspired by Puglia. Part of the Adam collection are also a dining table and coffee tables made from wood, giving a natural and handcrafted appearance to complete a luxury interior setting.

“We designed this collection not only to reflect on the Puglia region’s natural elements and rich artisanal history, but to give the Natuzzi sofa a second life” – Gabriele Chiave, Creative Director, Marcel Wanders studio The Secret Gardens collection designed for Devon&Devon was created with a holistic and poetic creative approach.

 

Individual elements are all dressed in a seamlessly flowing design and, when placed together, create remarkably immersive settings that produce dreamlike spaces. The first collection in collaboration with the brand consists of wallpapers and small and large ceramic decor slabs (all available in an array of different shades and patterns), a vanity table, three mirrors and a range of ceramic accessories.

“Devon&Devon collection aims to seamlessly connect the words between surfaces and objects, creating a magical illusion of being in a dream made of flowers and nature”. – Gabriele Chiave, Creative Director, Marcel Wanders studio

The limited edition Kaleido of Life Collection for Sahrai, includes three finely handknotted rugs in natural silk and wool. In this collection, Marcel Wanders studio had the freedom to design on a large scale artwork to create impressively massive textile pieces. The rugs are inspired by the natural elements: air (Lush), water (Allure) and earth (Charm). Each of the three elements is depicted through a computerized graphic creativity, which plays with the sensuality of natural forms.

In this process, Marcel Wanders studio defies design dogma, preferring instead to focus on holistic solutions rather than the technocratic. In this universe, the coldness of industrialism is replaced instead by the poetry, fantasy and romance of different ages, vividly brought to life in the contemporary moment. www.marcelwanders.com

Minotti 2022 Hospitality Vision – Waterrock Boutique Hotel and Villas Video

Minotti’s hospitality vision is increasingly evolving in terms of its design and stylistic language, giving shape, as every year, to a new and exclusive virtual project. 2022 sees the arrival of “Waterrock Boutique Hotel and Villas”, a concept that interprets the current trends of contemporary living in the residential and high-end hospitality sectors.

The new project is ideally located in a natural Mediterranean setting, lying on a coastal hilly area and offering panoramic sea views; a fascinating location designed to act as a new backdrop and maximise the dialogue between indoor and outdoor spaces and between furnishing pieces and architecture, values at the heart of the 2022 Collection.

The architectural style and materials used are closely linked to the spirit of the new collection, in absolute harmony with the mood proposed last year, in the sophisticated contrast between exposed concrete and satin-finish steel, scratched wood, lacquers and mirrored surfaces.

The spaces on offer combine the elements of the history of architecture ranging from Rationalism to Mid-Century American taste through to Brutalism, to give shape to picturesque atmospheres, the same ones that distinguish the style and identity of the brand in different contexts.

The main building in the complex is the Waterrock Boutique Hotel, home to three different areas dedicated to conviviality: the Ishi Bar, the Mizu spa and the Oleander Grill restaurant, spaces whose names refer to the Orient and its elegant and minimal atmospheres.

The lounge of the boutique hotel is animated by two different seating systems, both designed by Rodolfo Dordoni: Twiggy, which stands out thanks to its rigorous geometric shapes and the sophisticated sartorial flavour of tone-on-tone stitching, and Goodman which, available in various configurations, has compact, comfortable volumes capable of adapting to the space and needs of the individual living there.

The indoor environments of the Ishi Bar, on the other hand, see the alternation of areas dedicated to conviviality with the Twiggy seating system with informal dining areas with the Sendai lounge little armchairs, combined with the Oliver lounge tables, recreating a harmonious, enveloping atmosphere that extends to open spaces, set up with the elegant simplicity of the Yoko Cord Outdoor designed by Inoda+Sveje seats and the Patio Teak modular seating system by GamFratesi.

Suspended between inside and outside, the relaxation area at the Mizu spa is furnished with pieces that reaffirm the flexibility and transversal nature of Minotti furnishings, such as the Horizonte indoor seating system by Marcio Kogan / studio mk27 and the Patio system accompanied by the Belt Cord Outdoor seats, perfect for creating an atmosphere of welcoming intimacy in the poolside area. In the adjacent one, dedicated to relaxation, the Florida seating system not only furnishes but also defines the paths of the open-air space.

Large panoramic windows and perforated concrete partitions allow a glimpse of the landscape and its light, while the alternation of steel and lacquered surfaces in bright colours bring to mind a reinterpretation of contemporary, helping to create dynamic contrasts that become architecture.

In the Oleander Grill, the atmosphere is consistent with the Minotti language, capable of enhancing the projects and the different stylistic and cultural identities of the designers behind the collection. In this environment, the dining areas, both indoor and outdoor, are punctuated by relaxation islands in a continuous back and forth, with no interruptions, between inside and outside, between areas for conversation, work and hospitality.

Inside, the Lars and Sendai sofas alternate with the Linha Fina tables and the Yoko dining little armchairs, while the outside with the Bellagio tables and the Belt Cord Outdoor armchairs is instead characterised by the bright colours of the outdoor fabrics, inspired by nature and perfectly in harmony with the open-air space that hosts them.

The Waterrock Boutique Hotel is flanked by three different types of villas immersed in the landscape – Lotus Tree, Maple Tree and Cherry Tree – buildings differing in size, but united by the ability to accommodate the pieces from the 2022 Collection to best express the mood and eclecticism of the furnishings in different contexts.

Anastasia Reese was born in Siberia, raised in Russia’s Far East, and completed her education in Seoul, South Korea. She has been interested in the arts for as long as she can remember, and she eventually enrolled in university to study interior design and architecture. Her business is currently thriving, and she is creating wonderful works of art. One of them is this Washington project, in collaboration with LUXXU, which Inspiration and Ideas is pleased to present to you!

Revealing The Mysteries Within This Project

Entryway

The main reception point of any home is the entryway, therefore this area should set the tone for the remainder of the grandeur you’ll discover in this unique residence! This entryway design was endowed with a premium selection of materials and colors that work together to create the best elements.

One of them is the Beyond Console, which is LUXXU‘s best-selling console. This item has a contemporary vibe to it that will dazzle everyone who sees its opulent lines. Furthermore, the Gala Torch Wall adds a touch of sophistication to the picture by framing it in a way that blends in with the rest of the architecture.

Living Room

When you enter the living room, you can immediately sense the moody atmosphere it produces, but also its inviting coziness. You’ll feel like you’re having the ultimate glamping experience thanks to the well-thought-out positioning of the lower sofa and a basic yet stylish center table!

A clever lighting element is required in each living area to combine with superb upholstery so that maximum comfort can be provided. The Liberty Suspension is a one-of-a-kind addition to this extraordinary living space. This is a demanding piece to blend richness and elegance while providing good and expert illumination to this area.

Main Dining Room

Anastasia Reese and LUXXU Team Up For A City Refugee In Washington

There are two dining rooms in this magnificent home. Because this is the primary one, it must have the most extravagant and high-end furniture and features to properly bring out the best of this home and disseminate the feeling to anybody who uses it or visits!

Opulence in the dining room is unavoidable when building a wonderful space like this one. With its distinctive look and high-quality materials, the Beyond Dining Table is the ideal dining table to match with a one-of-a-kind lighting like the Empire Suspension; this combination truly exemplifies the stunning attractiveness of the modern design.

The Empire II Wall Lamp, a piece that brings the best illumination with maximum richness, and the Darian Sideboard, a design that combines functionality and elegance, provide that extra touch of luxury in the background of this dining set.

A Dark And Exclusive Haven

Kitchen

To reflect the house’s interior design style, a kitchen should have a touch of elegance. This area is luxurious and comfortable, and this décor, with its amazing perspective of nature, will let its owner savor every moment while preparing exceptional foods for special guests.

Anastasia Reese chose the Charla Counter Stool for maximum comfort and elegance, thanks to its eye-catching design that will undoubtedly become the focal point of the room. In terms of lighting, a unique Gala Chandelier was developed, making this set a one-of-a-kind marvel to behold.

Dining Room

Anastasia Reese and LUXXU Team Up For A City Refugee In Washington

Anastasia Reese designed a more intimate dining room that didn’t compromise on elegance. This location is ideal for when you want a more casual gathering centered on serving tea and providing a chance to relax and appreciate the taste and scent of the tea with the people who matter the most.

The Littus Dining Table was the ideal component for achieving this look. Due to its fantastic golden lines, this design adopts a circular shape that sublimely embellishes any dining area and provides the room with a lavish sense. The Empire Suspension, one of LUXXU‘s most iconic lighting components, looks fantastic with these golden accents. The Charla Dining Chair was the ideal choice for this space because of its comfort and elegance, which fit seamlessly with the rest of the design.

Master Bedroom

Harmoniously putting together ornamental pieces that fit wonderfully together, Anastasia Reese created this master bedroom. This allowed the entire environment to aid in relaxation, making it the ideal location for not only getting a good night’s sleep but also practicing mindfulness due to its tranquility.

The Château Bed is the center of attention, as it transforms even the most basic rooms into magnificent chambers. In the meanwhile, the Beyond Side Table is the ideal complement to this bed. The Empire Pendants and the Waterfall Rectangular Suspension contrast wonderfully with the schist wall in this space, which has a dark ambiance.

Bathroom

Anastasia Reese and LUXXU Team Up For A City Refugee In Washington

One of the best kinds of self-love is taking a hot bath with some of the most luxurious bath bombs and resting after a long and exhausting day! This opulent bathroom contributes to this by utilizing high-end lighting and a dramatic chandelier to add brightness.

The Burj Collection’s golden embellishments contrast perfectly with the dark walls in this special bathroom design. The Burj Chandelier illuminates the space with a bold yet sophisticated luminosity. The striking Burj Wall Lamp completes the design by adorning what would otherwise be a plain wall.

Office

Anastasia Reese and LUXXU Team Up For A City Refugee In Washington

To create the ideal environment with the correct ambiance to promote productivity, a fantastic home office requires high-quality furnitureAnastasia Reese chose LUXXU pieces with care to create a modern workspace that is both elegant and comfortable.

The end result was a workplace with a wood-toned color palette and a contemporary approach to interior design. The desk fits in perfectly with the environment and contrasts beautifully with the Charla Office Chair, an upholstery piece noted for its ergonomic design that promotes good posture. The Waterfall Floor Lamp adds a rich touch to the decor while creating an intimate ambiance.

Not only these, but Anastasia also picked some of the most beautiful pieces from other brands, perfect for retro lovers that can mix and match your designs!

Interview with Cecilie Manz

Interview with Cecilie Manz

Sheer coziness for that feel-good factor in the bathroom

Since the introduction of the Luv series, Nordic style has become a firm fixture in the bathroom. Danish designer Cecilie Manz’s minimalist design language invokes the Scandinavian concept of living for a brand-new sense of wellbeing. Carefully conceived materials that also appeal to the sense of touch emphasise the gentle forms and strict geometry. Perfectly harmonized color combinations round off the overall picture.

What emotion do you associate with the bathroom range Luv that you designed for Duravit?

For me, Luv is about sheer coziness for the perfect feel-good factor – natural, uncomplicated, and unobtrusive.

What’s most important to you in a bathroom?

The bathroom is one of the most intimate rooms and what matters to me are qualities like “clean, “functional”, and “comfortable”.  Everything should be hygienic and low-maintenance, it should work well and at the same time I want the materials, colors, and the overall ambience to exude a sense of wellbeing. In the bathroom I enjoy my “every day spa moment”.

The colors and surfaces that you’ve selected for the bathroom series Luv radiate natural warmth while simultaneously managing to appear contemporary. Where do you get your inspiration?

In the bathroom you often find cool and clear colors. Because Luv has a very pure design, it was important for me to create a cozy and welcoming component using subtle, natural tones. I often find inspiration for colors in nature – I always have a couple of pebbles in my bag.

What were the biggest challenges for you in designing furnishings for the bathroom?

I’m not sure if it makes such a big difference whether you’re designing a piece of furniture for the bathroom, the living room, or the kitchen. The design process involves the same approach and we go through the same mechanisms. At the same time, you have a greater responsibility to a certain extent: for me it feels as though each individual object that I design in the bathroom is tailor-made for the specific person buying it. That might be because each object in this room is so important. For instance, you might have various chairs in your home and can choose which one to use at any given time. You arrange your home how you want and are constantly moving things around. That’s not so easy in the bathroom. That’s why I also think that people’s decisions are a lot more conscious when selecting bathroom furniture.

Do you believe that people’s wishes in terms of bathroom furniture are changing?

It seems that bathrooms are constantly getting bigger. On the other side there is also a need for tiny, highly efficient bathrooms. In any case we expect the level of comfort enjoyed in the rest of the home to be part of bathroom, too: more warm colors, natural materials, coziness alongside inventive solutions for keeping it clean and using less water.

The moment fashion designer Pierre Hardy and his husband Christopher Turnier (CEO of Hardy’s eponymous brand) set foot inside the Seine-gazing 17th-century hôtel particulier on Île Saint-Louis, they knew it would be their home. Vincenzo de Cotiis was the couple’s obvious choice for revamping such a historic location.

Even totally empty the approximately 2,000-square-foot apartment was bursting with life—elaborate mythological frescoes covered almost every inch of its soaring, nearly 15-foot ceilings. Apollo, robed in crimson, harp in hand, looked down upon the entrance hall. In the living room, Juno, wife of Jupiter, and Aeolus, the Greek god of wind, lounged in the clouds, while Aurora, Roman goddess of dawn—resplendent amid a magnificent medley of cherubs and horses—presided over another room. The masterworks, attributed to the artist Bon Boullogne, best known for his easel paintings found at Versailles and the Louvre, were a serious selling point.

Hardy, a creative director at Hermès who also designed shoes for Dior and Balenciaga before founding his own brand of high-concept kicks, had always decorated his own homes. But for this place, so steeped in history, the couple called on the Milan-based Vincenzo De Cotiis—whose work they had long admired—to usher the interiors into the 21st century.

Architecturally, there was what Turnier calls “a big cleaning.” They removed additions from the apartment’s most recent update in the 1970s and restored it to something closer to its original. Original parquet floors, elaborate bas-reliefs, and carved mouldings were refurbished. But Vincenzo De Cotiis balanced that 17th-century classicism with distinctly modern touches: coating walls in plaster, cladding the petite galley kitchen in matte black fibreglass, lining floors in travertine. Perhaps most significant, silvered brass wainscoting was added to many of the rooms, which, along with a slew of mirrors, new and old, could reflect natural light as well as the surrounding architectural wonders.

Vincenzo De Cotiis took pains to create a home that would mesh with Hardy and Turnier’s lifestyle. The couple preferred spaces that could transform, day to day, so Vincenzo De Cotiis carved out a series of salons—large, transitional areas for working, relaxing, eating, and entertaining—where they spend the most time.

The couple’s personal things lean rather minimalist, making them excellent foils to a handful of 18th-century antiques and slick custom furniture pieces designed by Vincenzo De Cotiis. In the bedroom, a cherub hovers in the clouds above prints by Sol LeWitt and a monumental custom bed Vincenzo De Cotiis made of hand-painted fibreglass. In the grand salon, custom brass-and-fibreglass tables mix with 18th-century armchairs, a silvered brass sofa, and marble 1960s lamps by Tobia Scarpa. The Daniel Arsham painting that gazes out from above the sofa feels like an apt metaphor for the whole place: history, refracted through a modern lens.

Hardy and Turnier found their creative match in Vincenzo De Cotiis. He was happy to spend long hours discussing the precise shade of black leather for the living-room sofa and recommended hand-painting a window-side sofa’s upholstery fabric to perfectly reflect the colour of the Seine.

Casa Decor 2021 con los salones y salas de estar de la Casa Tomás Allende

Salones y salas de estar en Casa Decor 2021

Empezamos nuestro repaso por los espacios que forman la edición Casa Decor 2021 con los salones y salas de estar de la Casa Tomás Allende. Además del lobby Mixture Time, de Jaime Jurado y del salón Adunia, diseñado por Miguel Muñoz para Artesanía de Castilla-La Mancha –proyectos que presentamos hace unos días–, en la Exposición encontramos otros 10 espacios que nos descubren novedades, tendencias, soluciones decorativas y nuevas formas de vivir.

Espacio VG Living

#MissYourKiss se llama el salón que Virginia Gasch, de VG Living, ha diseñado en el recibidor del ala derecha de la segunda planta: un espacio dedicado al beso en un tiempo en el que la pandemia nos ha cortado las alas y nuestras emociones se han quedado en suspenso. La interiorista ha creado un salón moderno, colorista y vitalista, donde el arco –una de las tendencias decorativas de esta edición– es el hilo conductor del espacio, que envuelve al visitante a través de sus formas redondeadas presentes en el suelo de mosaico ecológico, en las paredes y el mobiliario.

El suelo se cubrió con un mosaico Art Factory de Hisbalit, un diseño de Virginia creado con 4 referencias en formato cuadrado en tono rosa, marrón, beige y blanco, una gama cromática inspirada en los besos.

Espacio Bang & Olufsen por Marisa Gallo

En esta edición, Bang & Olufsen confió en Marisa Gallo, de Interiorisimo, para crear el salón Beoliving, una sala de relax donde disfrutar de los productos audiovisuales de la firma danesa, entre los que destaca el televisor Beovision Harmony. Bajo éste, una repisa de piedra natural de Granith recorre todo el frente.

En el pasillo que encontramos nada más entrar al espacio, se creó una barra de desayunos y comidas rápidas donde, además de colocar varias botellas de The London Nº1 GIN, se instalaron cafeteras de La Marzocco. A continuación, el espacio principal se dividió en dos ambientes mediante una celosía diseñada por la interiorista. Para cubrir el suelo, creó un patrón de líneas geométricas en blanco y negro, y decoró las paredes con revestimientos murales, de Arte International. Además, paneles 3D, zócalos y cornisas de Orac Decor enriquecen el espacio.

Entre las piezas del mobiliario, destaca la imponente butaca en piel camel Imola de Bo Concept, un diseño de Henrik Pedersen, inspirado en las líneas de una pelota de tenis, y objetos sostenibles como la mesa auxiliar fabricada con materiales 100 % reciclados. El uso reiterado de tejidos es una seña de identidad de la interiorista, que utilizó textiles y tapicería de Sunbrella .

La domótica Lutron y reproductores de Bang & Olufsen permiten el control de todas las instalaciones del espacio, como la iluminación, el audio-video y las cortinas.

Completan el espacio distintas obras de arte: una escultura de Alberto Guerrero; la obra pictórica «Mudas promesas», de Débora Sánchez Viqueira y una fotografía de 27 MM-Enric Gener para Mar de Frades. La dirección y ejecución de obra corrió a cargo de Arquitalia Obras y Proyectos.

Espacio Verónica Montijano

Caelum. En el tercer cielo es el salón inspirado en el cielo de la Divina Comedia de Dante, proyectado por Verónica Montijano en el recibidor del ala derecha de la tercera planta. Un espacio monocolor, con escogidas piezas de mobiliario y una chimenea decorativa diseñada por Verónica para esta edición de Casa Decor. Las paredes originales se revistieron con una elaborada carpintería lacada efecto charol y frentes de cristal tintado en el mismo tono, mientras que el suelo se cubrió con una moqueta de lana virgen. Las cortinas verticales de madera lacada son de Luximperium.

Espacio GM Group por Cristina Amigo

El gigante indio GM Electric Group abre la puerta al mercado europeo a través de su espacio en Casa Decor: el recibidor del ala izquierda de la 5ª planta que Cristina Amigo ha convertido en una acogedora y moderna sala multifuncional. El espacio, gracias a las soluciones de GM, puede transformarse en salón, dormitorio o lugar de trabajo. Además, en Atelier Living, las piezas del mobiliario –diseñadas por la interiorista– también tienen distintos usos. Así, el sofá Circle, realizado y tapizado por Ormo’s, se transforma en cama, y el biombo Curve que hace las veces de cabecero o tabique móvil. En el espacio hay también una silla giratoria de Mobliberica y una lámpara de techo, de Oliva Iluminación. El suelo veteado es de Neolith.

Espacio Sofía Oliva Arquitectura

Madera, tejidos naturales, piedra y escayola son algunos de los componentes principales de Lienzo en Blanco, el salón proyectado por Sofía Oliva, en el ala derecha de la tercera planta. La arquitecta ha logrado recrear una atmósfera serena y calmada a través de un minimalismo confortable. En el espacio han colaborado Jung, con los mecanismos, y Lizzo/Pepe Peñalver, con los textiles.

Espacio Singular Living

La mansión del gran Gatsby que Francis Scott Fitzgerald describe en su novela inspiró a Elena Jori, de Singular Living, el diseño del espacio Long Island: summer of 1922una sala de estar en la que ha logrado recrear un ambiente acogedor, singular y con personalidad, gracias a la mezcla del interiorismo de las casas regias de Madrid de principios del siglo XX con el maximalismo contemporáneo. Materiales como el latón pulido, mármol, formas geométricas, elementos vegetales art decó y marquetería en techos y paredes consiguen trasladarnos a los felices años 20. Entre las piezas de mobiliario destacan los aparadores de la colección Adara de Momocca, con un singular acabado en curva.

Espacio Ethan Chloe por Guille García-Hoz

De la mano de la empresa Ethan Chloe, Guille García-Hoz nos propone una jaima muy particular, ubicada en el hall del ala izquierda de la 4ª planta. Con muebles, lámparas y complementos de esta firma de mobiliario y decoración, el diseñador apostó por un mix de estilos que encaja con la personalidad aventurera del personaje Ethan Chloe, un trotamundos con mucha clase. En el espacio también ha colaborado Levantina con el porcelánico de gran formato Sahara Blanche, de Techlam, que Guille escogió para revestir el frente de la chimenea, la celosía decorativa y parte del suelo.

Espacio Nometri

En el ala izquierda de la tercera planta, se encuentra Be My Guest, el salón proyectado por Ana Mª Fernández, de Nometri. La diseñadora de interiores se ha inspirado en la filosofía Hygge para crear un espacio relajado y confortable que invita a disfrutarde un buen libro, tomar una taza de té, escuchar música o simplemente charlar. Para ello, no ha dudado en combinar diseños clásicos, como la hornacina con vajillas de porcelana de Vista Alegre, con mobiliario contemporáneo, de Mobliberica, como la mesa auxiliar Sol, el aparador Miles, de Dressy, el sillón Salinas de Musola y prints de insectos. La alfombra que viste el espacio, así como el papel pintado que decora uno de los frentes, cortinas y cojines, son de CRClass by Roberto Diz. Las lámparas de techo pertenecen a la colección Nightbloom, diseñada por Marcel Wanders para Lladró. En el espacio también ha colaborado FEDE, con los mecanismos.

Espacio La Redoute por Mónica Garrido

Por segundo año consecutivo, La Redoute ha confiado en Mónica Garrido para el diseño de su espacio, ubicado en la 5ª planta. Family Room es una estancia multifuncional, con una mesa central como elemento principal que hace las veces de mesa de centro y de comedor. Alrededor de ella se colocó el resto de elementos: un sofá donde relajarse, una zona de librería y un rincón de lectura o relax junto a la ventana. Un espacio cálido y acogedor creado con piezas de calidad de la reconocida firma francesa de tiendas online..

Espacio Lorna de Santos

También en la 5ª planta, en este caso en el ala derecha, encontramos el salónIkigai,de Lorna de Santos, que se inspira en la vuelta  a la vida tras la pandemia, y nos insta a entrar en contacto con nuestro origen y la naturaleza. La arquitecta ha diseñado el espacio con materiales naturales como los revestimientos de mortero de arcilla, de Ecoclay, en las paredes, en tanto el suelo de madera se ha tratado con un barniz de Bona. El lino en el techo y el tronco de madera que recorre la estancia del fondo son recuperados de su sala de estar Topografías del Placer, espacio ganador del Premio al Mejor Proyecto Casa Decor 2020, en un gesto de responsabilidad ecológica.
