Vibia Brightens a Beach Hotel on Spain’s Costa Dorada

November 27, 2019

Situated along Spain’s Costa Dorada, the Olympus Palace Hotel in Salou occupies a prime position just meters from the tranquil Balearic Sea. The hotel was designed by Barcelona-based Matic & Garau, known for their environmentally sustainable, modern sensibility.

Befitting its beachside setting, the atmosphere is relaxed yet complemented by crisp, contemporary furnishings and décor, including Vibia lighting.

An airy, open reception area clad in rich, wood accents is hung with sleek Skan pendants. Designed by Lievore, Altherr, Molina, the LED-powered hanging lamps delineate the entrance space while reflecting light off the gleaming marble floors.

Skan also brightens the bar area. A compelling combination of slender lines and subtle curves, the fixture strikes a restrained, minimalist pose that echoes the geometric profile of the bar seats and the long, lean counter.

In the minimalist common area, Jordi Vilardell’s Balance features a drum shade that cantilevers outwards from its column, serving as both floor and ceiling lamp. A pull cord on the shade moves it right to left or up and down, enabling personalized lighting for reading or relaxing with friends.
