CALMA creates stylish outdoor ambiences for the hospitality market

It has been a busy year for the Catalonia-based brand, that in recent years has made a name of itself for its smart designs and innovative furniture for outdoor spaces. The company is also used to collaborate with young designers on developing new forward-thinking and original products, such as the OM sun shade by Andreu Carulla that won the coveted Red Dot Best of the Best Award in 2015.

Although their products don’t stick to any specific style, they nevertheless have some specific features that make them stand out from the crowd: they are state-of-the-art in design and materials and offer a stunning combination of elegance, functionality and versatility. At the core of the brand philosophy there is also a strong commitment to their own DNA and roots; for this reason, the CALMA outdoor collections are simply perfect for setting an immediate stylish Mediterranean mood in terraces and by pools.

Hospitality projects 2016

The company kicked off the year in buoyant mood as their UNA sun loungers were chosen to furnish the amazing pool area of the four-star Ozadi Tavira Hotel in the Eastern Algarve, Portugal. The hotel, originally built in the 70s, was redesigned by Portuguese architect Pedro Campo Costa in 2014 and in 2015 won the FAD Architecture and Interior Design Award. The jury pointed out that the restoration was carried out “with intelligence and sensitivity highlighting the values of the original building” and creating “pleasant surroundings and different spatial sequences that configure a welcoming context in which the architecture supports well-being and comfort”.

With its balanced, essential design the UNA outdoor collection proves a perfect complement to this beautiful boutique hotel that subtly fuses contemporary refinement, vintage details and local crafts. Designed by SerraydelaRocha, UNA is a complete outdoor furniture collection made of a powder coating aluminium frame combined with other different materials.

Inspired by the Venetian blinds and with a strong Mediterranean character, the TRAMA armchairs, another creation of Spanish designers SerraydelaRocha, complete the decoration of the luxurious indoor SPA.

Back to Spain, the UNA collection has been also used for the outdoor spaces and terraces of the new four-star Atenea Port Mataró Hotel and the roof terrace of the Inglaterra Hotel, both in Barcelona.

And what about creating contrasts? With their pure, contemporary design the UNA outdoor chairs and tables set an unexpected, understated mood in the outdoor terraces of the aristocratic Exe Casa de Los Linajes Hotel, in Segovia, which was completely refurbished in 2015. The restoration respected the historic aesthetic of the building while proving contemporary functionality. From the CALMA tables and chairs, clients can enjoy stunning views over the Eresma valley and the Castille’s fields.

A similar contrast effect can be found in the Kempferhof Resort, in Strasbourg (Alsace), a noble mansion of the 18th century which was transformed into an elegant luxury hotel with golf club and restaurant.
