Timage’s background in the architectural and yacht sectors has resulted in a high quality and varied product range. Hotel Designs identifies two pieces that perfectly define the brand’s timeless core both on and off the water…
The hospitality sector can benefit from this collection of marine-grade components which all fit the company’s sustainable philosophy of “buy to last” and that quality is timeless.
When beautiful design is also brought into play then you have the recipe for success. Two key products that perfectly demonstrate the company’s core beliefs, albeit with very different purposes, are the Piacentini table lamp and both the Iseo and Montisola director’s chairs.
The Piacentini table lamp – A new icon and a unique product designed by Christian Grande Designworks. The table lamp takes its name from its main inspiration, the works of Marcello Piacentini. Piacentini was one of the great early 20th century Italian theorists and the main proponent of Italian fascist architecture. Designed and hand-crafted in Italy with the finest materials, the lamp’s luxurious deco design is embodied in its refined components, brass and marble, bringing together some of the finest materials in two stunning forms. Both materials offer a solidity and permanency to the product, once again drawing attention to its source of inspiration.
The modern interpretation of a classic design language is demonstrated using the latest LED technology, incorporating an “invisible” touch dimmer on the marble base. This marble piece can be specified in several standard Italian varieties of stone. It is also possible to use a customer supplied marble for situations where the lamp must match another material already in use in a space. The brass metal elements are available in a range of different finishes or platings for a versatile product to suit a wide variety of interior styles. The rotating lamp shade is adjustable and allows the user to arrange the lamp for best use, making the Piacentini a practical solution for bedside or side table application.
Montisola & Iseo
Functional and stylish seating is always in demand within the hospitality sector. The answer to this requirement is the director’s chair – an iconic and classic piece of design. Originally intended as an outdoor seating solution, the director’s chair was then adopted by the yacht community and quickly, by association, became a symbol of luxury. Within the hospitality sector, the director’s chair has also been welcomed thanks to its ability to bring a comfortable seating solution to a wide variety of spaces. Whether it is a balcony, terrace, poolside bar or perhaps even a restaurant environment, the director’s chair promises to bring an elegant but relaxed feel whilst continuing to be a flexible tool in the creation of seating areas.
The Montisola and Iseo director’s chairs elevate this practical piece of furniture design to an entirely new level, bringing together some of the finest materials in two stunning forms penned by Christian Grande Designworks. The chairs are made from solid teak and are available in a wide range of Maria Flora outdoor fabrics. Both models of chair feature exquisite details such as mirror polished hinges and leather protective pads on the feet to avoid marking any flooring.
The director’s chair is the ultimate space saving solution and these models too can be neatly folded away when not required. Each chair is also supplied with a tailored carry bag.
