The Casilda Collection is based on the idea of a deconstruction of the classical furniture that maintains a contemporary elegance. The plain graphic lines of the frames are a canvass for the special elements that give it its distinct identity, such as the straps of the seats or the incrustations of marble or wood on the tables and the armrests.
Like a shell perfectly poised over the floor, Ramón Esteve achieves the Ulm Daybed’s design with refined and clean spherical geometry.
As with the rest of the Ulm collection, it is designed with the bare essential qualities of utility and function in mind, discarding all superfluous elements. As such, it is highly adaptable and easy to maintain.
The PREMIUM COLLECTION concept is part of a new communication strategy of the firm PORCELANOSA, which includes the edition of a special premium catalogue and the making of the Premium House for the Cersaie Fair 2015.
Its unique location, at the top of a hill, over a Cove of turquoise water, determines this project. A sequence of white concrete walls soar in different directions, by compressing and expanding the Visual, generating multiple scenes. The vertical planes are limited by long horizontal cantilevers, which are extended heading out to the sea.
The house is rooted to the ground and acquires a tectonic character, thus merging into the landscape.
Wide glass panes encloses the stone walls, allowing total transparency between the mountain and the valley and emphasising the massiveness of the walls.
AS A LINK ELEMENT
The project restores the roman schema by which the house is organized around a sequence of patios, that accompanying the route of access. This surrounding is embodied as a set of stone walls that structure the space, generating a hierarchical sequence of heights.
