Alf Erik Christensen, Director of Sales and Filip de Ruyck, Sales and Marketing Manager reveal how the company, still remains the leader, within the industry

As Bang & Olufsen Marbella celebrate their 25th Anniversary we discuss how they have remain market leaders and innovators within a constantly changing and improving technological world.

I have always been blown away by the Bang & Olufsen systems when I visit friends in Marbella who are fortunate to have ones installed. They really are outstanding. So I was thrilled when I was asked to interview the two men at the helm, Alf Eric Christensen and Filip de Ruyck. Bang and Olufsen, over the last 25 years, have been innovators within the Home Integration industry: n In 1990 they were the first to private cinema rooms based on highend Bang & Olufsen products interfacing with third party systems and complementary products n They were also the first brand to an integrated Dolby Surround System called AV 9000

n And during the boom years of 1995 they convinced developers within the luxury property market to pre-install the apartments with tailor-made distributions for audio, video and satellite, something that had not been considered before but would avoid buyers of the properties the hassle of having to get this done themselves. With other meaningful innovations like Acoustic Lenses, Adaptive Bass Lineations and the first speakers with Ice Power and today the new standard of wireless speaker platforms that take wireless audio performance to a whole new Level with unprecedented, robust sound and quality the first question I had to ask was...... You still remain at the top of the market. How have you achieved this? “We started installing and incorporating the B&O products into properties and realized that people wished to have more products like security cameras, door phone systems, and automation in general, but they also wanted to manage them with Bang & Olufsen remote control, and this has been our great success over the past few years”, said Eric who has been with the company since it opened in1989 “No matter what product you added, everything is still controlled with a single handy and powerful remote control and this is what make Bang & Olufsen different because it doesn’t matter what country your home is based in if you choose Bang & Olufsen you can always manage your system in the same way with the same remote control.

These innovations ensures we remain the leaders within the industry, because we realize that our most important aspect is providing a full service with one company, to meet all the wishes of the client; from creating the design, security, audio video and home cinemas to helping with all types of installations like curtains, light control, electric lights, and interior decoration. We also help with building work. Basically we give the client a complete package by adding magic to family entertainment”. As the company Bang & Olufsen Marbella has evolved they have integrated new “complimentary products” into their collection. This has indeed created new divisions within the company and led to the creation of Invisible Technology, a company that offers ground breaking audio, visual and smart home technologies – technologies that Bang & Olufsen currently do not offer, but by bringing these technologies together the end result offers life enhancing benefits, superior visual and audio solutions for the most discerning of clients. Please can you tell me about the new company Invisible Technology and the fantastic new products that you are will be bringing to the market? “The concept is as simple as it is effective. People expect their homes to be beautiful but they also want to add life and soul, which usually revolves around sound, vision and lighting and today the fashionable thing in technology is invisibility –

DÉCOR Magazine


imagine the possibility of invisible speakers built into the wall surroundings or in the ceiling, or behind a mirror or appearing from the ground as if by magic only to disappear again. We also have television that can be placed behind panels and cinema screens that some out of the ceiling or the floor - today we can adapt anything to any client’s needs this is the reality what Invisible Technology brings. In addition although Invisible Technology provides the end user with the very best visual and audio equipment the technology is an important tool for architects and interior designers, today it can be very had to maintain the creative integrity of a project while still providing all the technological needs, Invisible Technology solves this issue as it presents clean lines, no wires and is easy to maintain.

Now that you Bang & Oulfsen Marbella has just celebrated your 25th Anniversary, please tell me your plans for the future? “First and foremost to meet every one of our client’s requirements and needs - to us the client is king! Secondly we have a lot of new products coming out this year. - Televisions with 4K, the new ultra HD, and new wireless speakers. These are probably one of the biggest things that Bang & Olufsen, Marbella will present to date and we are proud of the fact that we are the only one in the world using them at the moment. We will also be making some changes to the shop, such as creating new demonstrations in the shop, which is important for us and our clients. These will be done in the near future.”

“Service has always been our most important focus point”

12 DÉCOR Magazine

Finally, you are renowned for the salubrious events your hold. Have you any planned for this coming year? “We participate sometimes in golf tournaments and other events presenting new products, such as televisions, speakers, and new domotic products. For example we will be participating for the fourth year, throughout the next Marbella Luxury Weekend at the beginning of June.” Said Filip, who has worked for Bang & Olufsen for the past eight years,

Eric continued, “We hosted one of our events, at La Cabane Beach Club, Los Monteros Hotel. We presented a new speaker from Bang & Olufsen together with special auto speakers. When we do an event we try to do something special. This time, we had a piano there with an automation system built into it, so it played by itself. We hold, on average, three to four events a year, promoting our new products.

Bang and Olufsen, within their magnificent showroom in the heart of Puerto Banus, are certainly not only making tidal waves in the Costa del Sol with their latest stateof-the-art technology, but globally with their home installation systems DÉCOR Magazine

The fan-shaped Ginkgo Acoustic Panel (named after the popular ancient Japanese Ginkgo tree) is a modern and fun soundabsorbing system.

Presented recently at Stockholm Furniture Fair by the producing company, Stone Designs, Gingko reduces the ambient noise, creating the perfect environment for watching movies and listening to your favourite music out loud, without making the life of your neighbours miserable. Evoking the natural landscape, the modular system can be mounted with ease on the wall. The ingenious creators call Gingko a sound design solution due to its properties. The aesthetic though is undeniable. One can arrange the modular panels created from hot-pressed 25% polyester felt as she/ he likes. It’s versatile and fun to play with. It comes in standard colours: white, grey anthracite but the surface can laminated also in other colours. Visit:

Just like Cleopatra felt she was the reincarnation of Isis, the Goddess of Love, so too, can all women feel like a goddess when bathing within the shell formation that is the Cleopatra Bathtub. Designed to create a sense of privacy and security, the bath embraces the bather, allowing her (or him) to unwind and relax. It is a place where the bather has control over their environment, choosing to relax in complete privacy - or not, after all the Cleopatra Bathtub is big enough for two. What woman wouldn’t feel like Cleopatra within the volume of this oasis? Cleopatra represents glamour and beauty, pomp and luxury, but she also represents grand gestures and dramatic moments - all of which describe the luxurious bathing experience to be had within the Cleopatra Bathtub. Even the lighting is spectacular with its row upon row of oval lit discs as though the lights are the crown for the Goddess of Love. For more information visit:

Boca do Lobo’s innate desire to create exclusive emotional furniture, as art, is perfectly illustrated in their Limited Edition collection Large Emotion. LIMITED EDITION / LARGE EMOTION was begun to bring status and singularity to each design while adding value to the Boca do Lobo brand.

Once again, they defy the laws of physics and redesigned this monumental console made from aluminium and lacquered in black, with a high gloss varnish. The spheres and semi spheres that complete this futuristic console are gold plated.

Kubrick BRIEF: Kubrick’s challenge was to create a luminaire that had never been seen before first, because of its size and secondly, because of its technical and artistic characteristics. We were looking for a sumptuous lamp that was different, without prejudice or limitation, and that would reign over any space. A hanging luminaire with imposing presence capable of asserting itself over any space. • Blowed glass within a metallic structure coated with natural patterned silk on the outside and smooth black silk on the inside, from Great Britain and Italy respectively. • RGB LED technology adjusted using remote-control, enabling gradual changes in colour. • The lighting source consists of a chromed metal body unit with 12 protruding rotary arms fi nished with a tulip of blown glass.

Padaung Padaung is beauty and elegance, like the Kayan women who wear brass neck coils. Padaung women surround their necks with rings until they are hermetically covered, as a sign of beauty. A ceiling lamp formed of concentric metal rings and Swarovski square-cut crystals positioned in a circular structure. It has an attractive design thanks to the strong presence conferred by its structure, shape and materials. Swarovski crystals add the perfect finish to this creation. Inspired by the Padaung ‘giraffe’ women who use glass beads to lengthen their necks, the lamp adopts their name as it is made of concentric metal rings to configure a circular structure. Swarovski Crystal Fabric strips have been applied inside, which not only makes it more beautiful but boosts the diffusion of the light, as the bulbs have been positioned at the same height.

The living room is the room in which you and your family spend the most time. Living rooms should be appealing, relaxing and allow you to interact with each other. Here are some tips for creating a living room you’ll never want to leave. Décor Trend - Lamps Lamps have become a décor trend in that they can be used as fashionable accessories. They’re especially great for bringing some trendiness and light to a living room, creating a lovely ambiance. For a bit of quirkiness, add more than one lamp and don’t make them the same. Lamps of different height colour and texture can add an interesting aspect to the room. Give it some intimacy An ideal living room gives people sitting in it the feeling that they’re sharing a special moment together. Organize your chairs or couches in an arrangement that enables easier interaction, for instance by placing the chairs so that they face each other. Use soft muted colours to promote calmness and serenity. Use natural materials Natural materials in the living room are considered a décor trend for 2014. Such materials create an earthy look. Wood is always a classic and stylish option. Plus, it works wonderfully in the living room because it can be used to create elegance or relaxation (or both!), depending on whether you want a formal or casual space.

Keep it minimalistic We all love our knick-knacks but having them placed everywhere can be very overbearing, and will make the room feel stuffy and messy instead invest in a statement piece of furniture like a dresser or floor to ceiling cabinet. You’ll be amazed the difference this will make to the room. Create layers of light Light layers should be placed to bounce illumination throughout a room and eliminate shadows from corners. Use chandeliers, scones and firelight.

As a rising figure of the modernist movement, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was selected to design the Weimar Republic’s Pavilion for the Barcelona Industrial Exposition of 1929. Through masterful proportioning and planning, Mies created a rhythmic and entirely unprecedented space, which elevated industrial-age materials to a level of grace never before achieved. Inside, Mies included chairs and stools conceived as a resting place for the King and Queen of Spain. Determined

to create a chair worthy of royalty, Mies is thought to have based the designs, with their signature crisscross frames, on the campaign chairs of Ancient Rome. Mies: “I feel that it must be possible to harmonize the old and new in our civilization.” Although the Barcelona Pavilion only stood for seven months, it is recognized as a defining achievement of modern architecture, as are the accompanying Barcelona Chairs (although the King and Queen reportedly never sat in them). Mies, a close friend and mentor to Florence Knoll during her time at the Illinois Institute of Technology, formally granted Knoll the production rights to the Barcelona Chair and Stool in 1953. The designs immediately became a signature of the Knoll brand and have been built to Mies van der Rohe’s exacting standards ever since.

featuring René Gruau Decorative Prints and Weaves

René Gruau was perhaps the most revered fashion illustrator of all time. Even once the camera took over, no photograph ever captured the moment as did Gruau’s brush. His career spanned seven decades beginning in the 1940s, and although the privileged world his work romanced had largely evaporated by his latter years, his style became only more appealing. Regarded by some as the father of modern advertising, his witty imagery conveyed whole worlds with seemingly simple brush strokes, blocks of colour, and the daring use of negative space. Little wonder that he was the illustrator of choice for the fashion greats - Christian Dior, Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent, Lanvin, Hermes, Givenchy, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar... the list is endless.

Kelly’s style fuses the Eastern principles of simplicity with the Western taste for sumptuous textures and luxurious finishes against a beautiful paint palette of natural tones. These signature colour tones have become the staple of Kelly’s designs earning her the title “Queen of Taupe” and instead of taking this title as a dig Kelly is very proud to be linked with this colour palette, “because I take my inspiration from organic shapes, texture and the interplay between materials, it is subtlety and ease that are the hallmarks of my style rather than brash, ‘in your face’ elements” she quoted.

Kelly Hoppen MBE is the darling of British Interior design and is acknowledged as one of Britain’s most influential style gurus. Her simple but opulent style has permeated interior design at every level, and has resulted in her work being featured in various newspapers and magazines across the globe.

Kelly’s rise to interior goddess was not through a conventional method, she didn’t attend a highbrow interior school, and with her stunning model looks and cascading toffee curls she looks like she should be gracing the cover of a magazine instead of designing the people’s homes featured within it… but then this is what Kelly Hoppen is all about! Her career began 37 years ago when as an independent 16-year-old with a relentless passion for design Kelly was given the opportunity to design a family friend’s kitchen. This modest commission not only created a teenage entrepreneur, it kick-started one of the most celebrated and extraordinary careers in the design industry, from there she worked for a race car driver, partner of one of her girlfriends, she designed a bachelor pad for the actor Martin Shaw, star of 1970s cop show The Professionals, and through this whirl of excitement and contacts Kelly says the business “just happened” but not before some failed attempts at working for others “I did some Saturday jobs. I got thrown out of Harrods, didn’t last more than a day. And I got thrown out of Tile Mart. Every job I went to, I lasted a day. I hated working for someone else, I’m too bull-headed,” she says.

In 1975 her business, Kelly Hoppen Interiors was formed and since this formation she has gone on to design for the rich and famous such as Victoria Beckham, Madonna, Elton John and it is even rumoured she worked with Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge. Not limited to just celebrity homes she has also undertaken many projects around the world for a variety of different spaces including houses, hotels, yachts, ski chalets, private jets as well as the interiors for British Airways first class cabins. Kelly has also been successful in a variety of business areas establishing herself as designer, retailer, author, educator and innovator. In 2007 she famously stated that “she’d never work for less than £300,000”, good work if you can get, and Kelly Hoppen certainly can as her ever expanding waiting list shows.

n Create balance on mantelpieces and other surfaces by juxtaposing one over scaled object with two or three miniature ones

n Beware colour as classic Kelly is a yin-yang scheme of dark and pale, using a palette of neutral colours and contrasting textures

n Mix old and new antique and vintage, against the clean lines of stark contemporary pieces

n Introduce texture as without it, a neutral scheme will look flat and dead

n Start with linen as your first choice of fabric: without it, a scheme will never feel quite right Although her career has now spanned nearly four decades, Kelly Hoppen shows no sign of slowing down. Amongst other projects, Kelly has found the time to re-open her highly successful ‘Kelly Hoppen Design School’ which she originally launched in 2003, her ninth book was released in September, she has a new creative partnership with bathroom specialists Crosswater, and has re-entered the world of TV having recently completed filming the new season of Dragons’ Den.

n Unblock energy within the home using crystals, colour, candles, music, and chainmail curtains made of small metal balls

n Create symmetry if a fireplace is off-centre in a room make sure you line the sofa up with it

Kelly has also been expanding her business, supporting various charities, acting as a trade ambassador for Britain as part of the Government’s GREAT campaign, and working with UK Trade & Investment mentoring SMEs. Kelly Hoppen is fearless and as one of Britain’s most sophisticated career women she lives by her slogan that “nothing is too big, and nothing’s ever big enough”! ,,,, www.jetsettimes.,,

THE INSIDE STORY Tom Dixon has the career that every designer, whether a starry-eyed school grad or a mid-level creative director with clients from hell and a bulging portfolio, would kill for. He has his own shop in London. He runs his own product- and interior design firm. His tentacles reach into everything from slick restaurants and bars in London to hotels and boutiques in mainland Europe, Russia, and Asia and more recently he has been awarded “Designer of the Year 2014) by Maison and Object Paris not bad for a school drop-out who fell into design by accident when he found himself with “time on his hands” while recovering from a motorcycle accident. Born in Tunisa, Tom Dixon moved to England in 1963. He dropped out of Chelsea School of Art to play bass in the band “Funkapolitan” before teaching himself welding while repairing his bike after the aforementioned accident – This incident inspired Tom and soon he began to produce furniture Tom rose to prominence in the mid1980s as “the talented untrained designer with a line in welded salvage furniture”. He set up ‘Space’ as a creative think-tank and shop front for himself and other young designers. By the late 1980s, he was working for the Italian giant Cappellini for whom he designed the Iconic ‘S’ chair. In the 1990s, he became a household name with ‘Jack’, his polypropolene “sitting, stacking, lighting thing” designed for his own company ‘Eurolounge’ which became a symbol of that age.

ARTIST Alicia Czerniak What critics say about Alicia Czerniak’s Art: “Freedom and spirituality literally burst out of the work of Alicia Czerniak. The freedom of a vigorous and gestural brush stroke, which is very representative at the same time. Her work communicates, expressing the idea of an opening toward the cosmic with an energy that transcends the limits of the canvas. Through a pure, primary and intense chromatic range, Alicia Czerniak introduces us to her pictorial space with an audacity that almost gives us goosebumps. Her containment and the order of her first works culminate in an obvious manner in a predominance of matter and in a flow and dynamism that are free and forthright. The work of Alicia Czerniak lays bare a personal and different manner of facing the act of pictorial creation and, although we are redirected to the memory of abstract expressionism, her lyrical and poetical style introduces us to a unique and singular creative world. A great lesson that teaches us how the simplicity of forms may also be conducive to beauty and to the deepest reflection.” –By Ángeles Hinojosa Tenllado Master of Museum Studies and Master of Fine Arts, Former curator of the Reina Sofia National Museum (MNCARS) Madrid Contact: Alicia Czerniak Media T. +34 952 868 001 M.+34 650 455 734 DÉCOR Magazine

There are different reasons why someone feels the exigency to collect art: it can be for cultural reasons, for economical and investment reasons, or simply for esthetical ones but all have in common a deep sensibility, a great spiritual depth and a strong love for beauty. Collecting contemporary art and is one of the most exciting ways to interpret the world right now, like living in a live show, through a process that ties together the most diverse aspects of aesthetic and conceptuality linked and guided by the collector’s personality. Collecting art is a path of personal growth. We have just to remember that a collection is not a body of work, but the portrait of taste, passion and culture of the owner. As it is said by Nicholas Serota, director of the Tate Modern Museum in London: “If you can afford it, the best way to

deal with art is buy it, live it with passion and take care of it”. HoA is mainly engaged in contemporary art, but in case of advice for the establishment of private collections or simply to find a work coveted by a collector who has addressed to us, we can, through our international contacts, to assess and achieve even modern art. One of our collectors says: “I started to buy works of art several years ago, but I think I have become a collector only recently, meaning as collector one who is buying without thinking about where to place it, and sees collecting as a reflection of his own personality. When you buy works of art, the first reason is your personal taste and the pleasure of sharing and showcasing the work at your own home, then you tend to make more organic choices, to include works by artists who at the first instance do not totally reflect your

taste, but that trace a path in the art scene. Gallery Houses of Art, works to promote high quality contemporary and modern art. We represent international artists with a solid important background who feature in international collections and museums as well as emerging and mid career international artists. At the same time we support a select group of young artists by exhibiting their works from an early stage to take them to a level of international exposure, collaborating for this purpose with other international galleries. We assist collectors at all levels in the primary and secondary market and provide a detailed provenance of all works of art exhibited. Marbella Club Hotel Blv. Pr.

ARCHITECTURAL SONIC MODULES The peculiar shape of AS™ architectural sonic modules is conceived to be acoustically efficient and capable of focusing sound to direct it into predefined areas; combining different sonic modules and their different directional properties allow to fully redesign the ACOUSTIC EXPERIENCE of any architecture, both indoor and outdoor. Bang & Olufsen Marbella Puerto Banús, Main Entrance +34 952 817 250

The distinctive geometry of the reflecting surfaces allows certain types of modules, characterized by a DIRECTIONAL sound emission, to adapt largely to installation areas. Varying and adjusting the orientation of the module or the sound design can guide the attention and movement of people in certain directions, exploring and redesigning specific architectural features, or creating multiple and independent micro-areas inside the whole main space. Other types of modules are characterized by an OMNIDIRECTIONAL sound emission; the richness of their tones and their radial diffusion resembles the one of a natural sound source. Approaching the module in a natural environment you can sense a smooth and regular increase of sound pressure level and feel the profound wideness of the sound source, such as when approaching a waterfall or a playground; in an indoor context, their unpredictable omnidirectional reflections are even more intriguing, because they can interact with the architecture, EXCITING “the architectural game” of space discovering.

SONIC GARDEN When we talk about LANDSCAPE we often discuss it in purely visual terms, without considering that its appreciation is also influenced by the general environment of the site, a space rich of sound sources all involved in the orchestration of a specific soundscape: sounds created by wildlife, sounds of nature like water flowing, wind and leaves, human activities and also maintenance operations. The realms of sonic outdoor design have always been an important component in landscape architecture: music from splashing jets, caged birds, and chimes have always been historically an integral part of the MULTISENSORY experience provided by gardens, with powerful and beneficial effects on our minds and emotions.

In the XII century the famous Arab inventor and engineer Al-Jazari, made the most famous PERSIAN gardens play by way of his amazing inventions, like a garden flute that played a continuous note; water drove air out of vessels and into the flute’s mouthpiece to make it play, on the lines of a whistling kettle. This was the method used for the artificial birdsong fashionable in grand gardens of the time. The ITALIAN RENAISSANCE gardens, which flourished in the late XV century, were intended as a place for contemplation and for the enjoyment of the sights, sounds and smells of the garden itself. The lively play of the waters that delighted the visitors to the Villa d’Este in Tivoli was portrayed as a real wonder: the Fountain of the Owl used a series of bronze pipes like flutes to make the sound of birds and the music played by the great Organ Fountain was described as “true music, naturally created”.

Cape reed (Thamnochortus Insignis) grows exclusively on a small strip of land in the Southern Cape region of South Africa.

Their primary roofing material is cape reed (Thamnocortus Insignis). This remarkable plant grows exclusively on a small strip of land in the Southern Cape region of South Africa for an average of six years before harvesting. Cape reed is well known for its durability and is an excellent thatching material. Waterproof and UV-proof, cape reed thatch structures have a life expectancy of 20 to 50 years.

The Cape Reed Group of Companies is a world leader in creating a desired lifestyle. For more than 20 years they have been designing, supplying, and building awardwinning timber and thatch structures with high-quality natural and sustainable materials.

Taking into account cape reed’s limited availability, the Cape Reed Group of Companies adheres to strict farming practices to ensure the material’s sustainability. The company’s conservation efforts extend to its lumber practice where timber gets harvested from FSC-approved sources and more than 165,000 new trees gets planted each year.

These thatch and timber structures provide natural, environmentally friendly shade and a unique luxurious place to enjoy outdoor entertainment.

Due to the active fire risk to constructions made from natural materials, Cape Reed has developed a fire retardant thatching method for improved safety. Their craftsmen incorporate a fire retardant blanket capable of resisting temperatures of up to 500 degrees Centigrade within the thatch. Cape Reed can also add further fire protection by applying a specially developed ecofriendly chemical spray: Cape Reed FireShield, which is manufactured by Dutch company, Magma. A prototype of this unique construction method including these fire retardant applications has been independently tested and the company has subsequently earned the European Union’s approval for their fire retardant thatching method.

ÉTOILE COLLECTION SIDEBOARD in solid wood characterized by two doors and four drawers with real silver leaf pattern

Étoile is the Cantiero collection inspired by Art Deco, the style phenomenon of the second and third decade of the last century, which encompassed decorative and visual arts, architecture and fashion, and led to the emergence of a special French distinction which was manifested in various product sectors, including furnishing and cabinetmaking. This French

influence also inspired the name of the collection. In fact, in France, the name Étoile is used to identify an actor in a stage play as well as the “prima ballerina” in a ballet troupe. Étoile is a furnishing collection designed for both the night and day areas of the home, realized using only prime American solid walnut. Every part of the collection contains

decorative elements with real silver leaf finishes. The recurrent pattern found on the various accessories recalls a futurist painting from the early 1900s. The choice of the materials, the uniqueness of the design and the mixture of finishes make this a highly original and distinctive collection. Cantiero considers Étoile to be the highest expression of the manufacturing expertise that it has built up in sixty years of passion and research. Solid wood bed lacquered white with head decorated in real silver leaf. Coordinated chest of drawers and night tables.
