Allegory of the sea as a gateway to The Gallery.
The objective of the interior design project, led by the Barcelona interior design studio, Alfons & Damián, has been to convert the hall of The Gallery into the calling card of Marina Port Vell, transmitting the concepts of elegance and quality that characterize
the marina. Entering the glass building is a circular walnut bench with camel-colored upholstery that houses a lush natural kentia in the center. Likewise, simulating a wave, as an allegory of the sea, we find another bench with different uses: on the one hand, it
functions as a waiting area and, on the other hand, it becomes a small meeting space as it is accompanied by a round travertine table and a hanging lamp. All of this is accompanied by the floor covered with Hermitage marble that provides a point of brightness and light to the space, giving a sophisticated appearance to the hall of the marina. In the background, behind a travertine marble bookcase and glass shelves, designed expressly for this project, is a meeting room.
Inside the Marina Port Vell Gallery VIP room:
Presided over by a 6.5-meter travertine table, the room is crowned by a suspended slab, upholstered with terracotta-colored acoustic fabric. These, in turn, are projected on the floor like a large carpet of geometric pieces of different matching colors. This table is surrounded by Rely and Tradition chairs, 16 in total. Perfect for holding meetings or boards of directors in a unique environment.
Marta Tuñí explains that “this VIP room is perfectly prepared to host meetings in a unique environment in the city, we are sure
that it will be a great success among companies in Barcelona” The room is rented for hours or days.
In one of the corners, following the organic forms that define the project, a large support cabinet, which houses a bar cabinet and even a service cart, to be able to attend to meeting attendees. Natural linen curtains allow giving more privacy to the room. Whilst creating opacity, thus always allowing visual contact with the port and the sea. This space also has state-of-the-art audiovisual systems by Bang & Olufsen. On the one hand, Beovision Harmony: is a television experience that takes the decoration of any space to a higher level, while enveloping it in impeccable sound.
Like a butterfly spreading its wings, two meticulously crafted oak and aluminum decks fan out while a fine screen rises to allow the viewer to enjoy an unprecedented view. Beovision Harmony is a spectacular piece of design that once again exemplifies Bang
& Olufsen’s uncompromising approach to design, craftsmanship, and sound efficiency.
In addition, the space features the new Beoplay A9, the latest edition of the firms’ iconic speaker, widely recognized as one of the most distinctive and successful integrations of sound and beauty on the market to date.
