Chairs "Thonet All Seasons" S 34 N, S 35 N and S 64 N
Just a few metres from Barcelona’s old harbour and the famous La Rambla promenade, the high-rise Edificio Colón was built on the Avinguda de les Drassanes in 1970. With 28 floors and a height of 110 metres, it was Barcelona’s first building to exceed the 100-metre mark. Today, a unique restaurant and bar is located on floors 23 to 24: the Spanish star chef Enrique Valentí opened the “Marea Alta” in September 2016 and has since been offering a menu featuring extraordinary seafood dishes with French and Japanese influences.
Thanks to the hexagonal shape of the space and the floor-to-ceiling windows, visitors can enjoy a 360-degree view of Barcelona. The restaurant’s interior design is characterised by maritime touches: wooden floorboards, porthole-shaped mirrors and a largely white and marine blue colour design are reminiscent of the interior of a ship. Thonet supplied 16 classic cantilever chairs S 64 N with chrome-plated frames and various models of the “Thonet All Seasons” collection to furnish the “Marea Alta”. The outdoor furniture harmoniously fits in with the interior and proves that it also makes a striking impression indoors. A total of 83 chairs of model S 34 N were used completely in white, some with night-blue cushions. Three lounge chairs S 35 N including footstool invite visitors to comfortably enjoy the view of the Mediterranean.
