IMM Cologne 2016: design from Spain (II)

We continue our review of Spanish design brands on exhibition at the IMM Cologne in pavilions Pure & Pure Editions. SANCAL and VONDOM have some new designer items that will add style and a lot of personality to your indoors & outdoors. Discover more...



Be prepared for the unexpected! Imagine wonder-rooms full of the most exotic pieces, all housed in a golden-ratio-inspired setting. The shine of metallic colours, like the vibrant copper details or the silvers, mixes with soft, fur-like velvet and the scent of real leather and the warm marquetry contrasts with the cool elegance of marbles. It’s fairy tale, it’s real. It’s MAJESTIC, the latest fabulous collection of SANCAL, on display in an unparalleled, almost surreal, scenography.

The whole collection, which includes 6 designer items, takes inspirations from decorative styles from other periods; but it brings them to new life, avoiding an overwhelming idea of luxury. This way, the company stays true to its design principles of sophistication and humour.


As if enchanted, the products each have their own personality: the mini armchair TONELLA, by the Swedish design studio Note, is a more compact rethinking of a SANCAL’s old model; the outstanding MOSAICO range by Yonoh comprises of a set of tables and seating solutions that can be freely combined in a puzzle-like manner; the VICHY dining table by French designers BrichetZiegler boasts its full spread of marquetry. New pieces have also been added to the COLLAR and NUDO families.

Another highlight of the MAJESTIC line is the TIP TOE sofa which gets its name from its slender and airy legs. Like with most of his classics for SANCAL, Rafa Garcia put the emphasis on simplicity and functionality. Refined, subtle, and extremely cosy, TIP TOE provides any living room or lounge space with extra sophistication and comfort.
