Six international design consultancies to design ‘El Cubo’ contract spaces
Valencia, 31 July 2018.- The star project of the upcoming edition of ‘Home Textiles Premium by Textilhogar’ is taking shape. The new commercial, display and seminar space centred on the contract business that has been styled ‘El Cubo Business Contract Zone’ has closed a deal whereby six prestigious interior design practices will design the nine contract spaces that will showcase the versatility of textiles for decorating the most exclusive settings.
These are well-known, prestigious professionals with extensive experience of using textiles in different projects around the world. Architecture studio Abramianarch of Cerdeña (Italy), for example, will be designing spaces such as the aisles and communal areas of ‘El Cubo’, whilst Mauricio Ramírez, of Mérida (México), will be dressing an exclusive room in this special ‘resort’ at Home Textiles Premium by Textilhogar 2018.
Profesional interior designer Mamen Pérez of Valencia-based textile interiors studio Carmela Martí has been commissioned to design another of the exclusive ‘El Cubo’ rooms, whilst the two ‘Suites’ set to be part of the project will be decorated with the creative talent of Víctor Medina & Galir Martínez-Barros of Lemobba Architects & Designers, who will be dressing the space allocated to the Official College of Interior Designer Decorators of Madrid (COODDIM), and the ever surprising Valencian interior designer Carmen Baselga, of interior design practice Taller de Proyectos, who will be designing a Junior Suite.
Interior design talks
Lastly, interiorist and decoration personal shopper Vanessa Roade Spalvieri (La Shopperdecor®), who has delivered projects in Madrid, Milan and Buenos Aires, is heading up the design of the huge Auditorium that will be the venue for a seminar dedicated to how the textile industry has evolved and the technological and design challenges that it faces.
This seminar takes place on the afternoon of Thursday 13th September, with ATEVAL’s new president, Càndid Penalba and Home Textiles Premium by Textilhogar president, José Ramón Revert, giving the keynote speech. Speakers include Carmen Baselga, Esther Márquez, of Manuel Torres Design studio, Inés Abramián, Loli Moroño, creative director at PF1 Interiorismo, Víctor Medina and Galir Martínez of Lemobba Architects & Designers and Rafael Gallego, of Aureolighting, who will give his views on the importance of lighting in textile projects.
Top textile manufacturers all set for ‘El Cubo’
All of the above will be going in within a space that will also include a purely commercial element, in the shape of some of Spain’s foremost textile manufacturers such as Alhambra International, Pepe Peñalver, Coordonne, Equipo DRT, Lamadrid Contract, KA International and Gancedo. These companies will be showing their latest products and collections spanning more than 40 brands, making ‘El Cubo’ an unmissable event for any specifier or contract professional with an interest in textiles.
Eminent hospitality/contract specialist design consultancy Infinityinner is collaborating on the ‘El Cubo, Business Contract Zone’ and the project is a complement to the huge commercial showcase at this upcoming edition of Home Textiles Premium by Textilhogar, which is bringing together more than 230 international firms and brands at Madrid’s Caja Mágica exhibition centre from 12th to 14th September.
