The timeless quality of Talenti, a leading brand in the high-end outdoor furniture sector, was chosen to furnish the luxurious spaces of the Grand Hotel Victoria Concept & SPA in Menaggio, overlooking Lake Como, which has recently undergone an ambitious renovation and expansion project conceived by the architect Franco Pè and his architectural firm.
In renovating the hotel, part of the R Collection Hotels chain, the atmosphere of the old manor house was kept intact and the rooms created within the original structure. During the Belle Époque, this building – rich with memories – hosted half of the aristocratic families of Europe. In the hotel’s sophisticated rooms, history and tradition meet the modern design and incomparable charm of accessories by Talenti.
The true heart of the entire structure is the 1,200 m2 SPA, equipped with a 20-meter swimming pool, an area in which furnishings from the iconic Casilda collection – designed by Ramón Esteve – have been placed, a perfect synthesis between the rationality of the geometries and the enveloping power of the fabrics, dominated by neutral tones. With their minimal lines, the Casilda Sunbed and Casilda Daybed contribute to the exclusivity of the atmosphere, making it even more magical. In the context of the SPA, inside the sauna room, there is also space for the sinuous and delicate shapes of the Breez bed, designed by Karim Rashid, with its curves that can instantly evoke intense sensations of well-being.
In its natural element, the outdoors, Talenti has given its best. The latest addition to the Talenti line, the Casilda Daybed, surrounds the large outdoor swimming pool, while the garden welcomes the compact seating of the Cottage collection designed by Ramón Esteve, easily adaptable to any context. In the sumptuous outdoor environment of the Grand Hotel Victoria Concept & SPA, the sofa and armchair from this collection combine perfectly with the seating from two other Talenti collections in the bar area: Moon teak and Moon alu designed by Cristian Visentin, furnishings animated by the lively contrast between the linearity of the shapes and the softness of the cushions.
On the other hand, the creativity of Marco Acerbis has made it possible to furnish other outdoor areas of the hotel: the dynamism and freshness of the Cleo Alu collection, with its coffee tables and Daybed solution, evoke the unmistakable inspiration of design – also clearly distinguishable in the Milo Alu dining table. With its material contrasts and unexpected combinations, the elements of the Cleo Alu collection can emotionally engage any observer, communicating directly to the heart. Outside there are also coffee tables from the Cleo Teak line, characterized by a strong personality able to stand out in even the most exclusive spaces.
