22 Cover Story
24 24 Cover Story
ow great would it be, if every day were a holiday? Creating your own leisure space is the perfect way and make it more wonderful by Royal Botania. Royal Botania is outdoor luxury furniture, started in 1992 by two engineers, Kris Van Puyvelde and Frank Boschman. From the first plan, they want to start importing teak outdoor furniture from Asia, but they decided to create better designs and quality of the furniture. Within days the company was formed and named Royal Botania, an allusion to both the natural beauty of lush botanical gardens and the matching supreme “royal class” furniture they were about to create. Initially the focus of Royal Botania was to fuse superb quality and refreshing designs made out of teak wood. Quickly the company became internationally synonymous for luxurious quality and design. The reputation and brand name gained worldwide recognition.
This success led to new outdoor furniture collections being designed as well as to the launch of outdoor lighting. The team expanded and soon introduced lines made of new materials such as stainless steel, aluminum and synthetic fibers. Royal Botania has an international reputation as being the trendsetter in the world of luxurious outdoor furniture. They create pieces that have elegant and straight minimalist lines, whilst combining them with supreme manufacturing precision processes. All products are ultimately luxurious and comfortable at the same time as being contemporary or timeless in their design. Designs of each product are aesthetically balanced and deliver a high degree of functionality, without sacrificing comfort and design purity. That is the honest reason why Royal Botania products have repeatedly won prestigious international design awards.
26 Cover Story
Royal Botania furniture can find at famous hotels around the world, from the desert heart of Dubai, the cold Canadian winters, or the high UV-exposure under the Australian sun and also at restaurants and yachts & cruise liners. In Thailand, you can find Royal Botania sun lounge, dining set, and bar stool at Kata Rocks, an award-winning residence and luxury resort, located in one of Phuket’s most exclusive areas: Kata Point – a promontory between two of Phuket’s finest beaches.
Interior Tips [
In the near future, researching will play a more important role than an emotional factor for the product and service sector. This concept significantly changed luxury marketing. ]
Sasivimol Sinthawanarong Design Principal JARKEN group of companies
I have had the opportunity to attend the very first Maison &Objet Asia in Singapore. Personally, I reckon that it is one of the most important events in the interior and product design world in which designers and architects should not miss. The highlight is not only the latest collections from both European and Asian designers exhibiting in the event, but also the concept of furniture from the designers themselves. One of the famous speakers from NellyRodi and world-renowned trend analyst, Vincent Grégoire, interestingly shared his viewpoint on design trend direction in 2015 – 2016. Today I’m going to give you a brief summary of his speech Colour and material trends of architecture and interior design from now on will affect each other and have interactive communication. Each generation will follow particular material and social trends more. Social media greatly influences people’s lifestyle choices. In the near future, researching will play a more important role than an emotional factor for the product and service sector. This concept significantly changed luxury marketing. One should not interpret consumer ability in terms of their purchasing power or money but in terms of their ability to exchange experience. Most importantly, the newer generation chooses to work, live their life and rest simultaneously. This means that designers need to bear this concept in mind when designing a product.
28 Interior Tips
In the meantime, older generation chooses a slower-paced lifestyle. Product design will no longer be linked to preference or styles like modern, contemporary or classic. The value of product design in the future depends on communicating effectively with customers. That is to say we need to design the products to communicate to the customers and not use the product itself to attract nor determine preference. The product design chooses the right person and the right person should choose the product. Vincent Grégoire divided tendencies that set the design directions into 4 concepts: life purpose, spirit and identity, environment and core. For each concept, extensive researches and experiments have been conducted with products and services. Applying theories or basic principles like Science or Arts with architecture and interior design is no longer the case. Sometimes it is true that great product designs do not depend on fashions that
come and go. Long lasting product designs are the one that pay attention to the surroundings. We need to collect changes, analyze them, then present, test the market and get the customers’ feedbacks so that our product designs truly reflect this rapidly changing world. Please stay tuned for the next chapter!

YANG HAS WON A 2014 WALLPAPER* DESIGN AWARD Giorgetti has won a Wallpaper* design Award for 2014, the prestigious recognition awarded by the English interior design magazine of the same name which annually gives awards to people, places, objects and phenomena that have stood out during the previous year. On the one hand, a jury of personalities such as Victoria Beckham, the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Thom Mayne, the designer Ron Gilad and the restaurant king Michael Chow, to mention only a few, selected 11 winners; on the other, the Wallpaper team, made up of journalists, photographers and experts on the subject, named 33 excellences including Yang, the chest of drawers with a mirror designed by Design MVW for Giorgetti as “Best Vanity Unit”. Made in walnut canaletto with seven drawers and a round mirror at the top, Yang is the story of a contamination of worlds stemming from the encounter between manufacturing tradition and design innovation, between noble materials with a classic flavour and design with clean lines and great character and between East and West. http://bit.ly/1hInTod
“Enjoy life – Be kind – Break rules – Drink wine – Be loving – Hear song - See beauty - Live life – Be free” These phrases are carved on a rock in front of Kata Rocks, Phuket, telling the visitors that this place will bring them happiness
Richard Pope The owner of Kata Rocks
ata Rocks, the multi-award winning 6-star resort and residences, is located in one of Phuket’s most beautiful area; with the steep cliff formed by large rocks leading down to the fine white-sand beach and crystal clear blue waters. Mr. Richard Pope, the owner of Kata Rocks, told us “When I was looking around property in Phuket, I came across this site and I told myself I couldn’t let it pass.” The King’s Cup Yacht Regatta, Richard’s favourite activity, is also held in this area. During the boating season, you will see hundreds of yachts lined up in front of the resort.
34 Welcome Home
Richard explained Kata Rocks’ design concept and inspiration “My desire is to provide a place with an authentic Thai feeling. I’m not talking about the Thai gable architecture or delicate carving. I want modern-style buildings with Thai identities such as the principle of Buddhist practice: The Middle Way, bringing simplicity and calmness. “The project is built to take full advantage of the sloping land. Every room has a sea view. As for the interior design, we use furniture from Euro Creations for the entire project. They are all world-renowned brands such as Giorgetti, Natuzzi, MisuraEmme and Royal Botania. We selected each piece of furniture with various materials: wood, leather and
fabrics, and also with matching colors combinations to create a relaxing atmosphere.” Richard explained the architectural design concepts and furniture decoration, especially the selection of Royal Botania as the whole project’s outdoor furniture. The white modern look and minimal design compliment the blue of the sky, the pool and the sea. “No matter where you come from, I want everybody leaving Kata Rocks with a mutual feeling, that is being fully charged and relaxed from a place exceptionally designed to fulfill relaxation needs at its best” Richard concluded.
