ALAIN DUCASSE takes Italianness to Singapore

Pedrali collections embellish the legendary BBR

The Raffles Hotel is a luxury hotel in colonial style located in Singapore. It was established by the Sarkies brothers, Armenian Hoteliers, in 1887. The hotel is named after the British statesman Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, founder of the modern Singapore.

The Raffles Hotel immediately set an incomparable standard within the field of luxury hospitality that is confirmed to date, by enchanting travelers with meaningful experiences and a welcoming service that is both gracious and intuitive.

Connoisseurs choose Raffles, not merely for its aura of culture and beauty. But for the extraordinary way they feel when in residence with it. In fact, they always arrive as guests, leave as friends and return as family.

First established in Raffles Singapore in 1896, the iconic Bar & Billiard Room (BBR) has recently evolved with a new chapter in its storied history, remaking itself as the vibrant OSTERIA BBR by acclaimed Chef Alain Ducasse.

This modern and energetic concept expresses the culinary legacy and deep passion of the Michelin-starred chef for the Italian Riviera, through produce-driven, thoroughly perfected recipes with a contemporary touch made using an approach featuring locally and regionally sourced produce elevated with unsurpassed ingredients native to Italy.

Sympathetic to the historic architecture of the Bar and Billiards Room, the iconic establishment retains its original name, striking architecture and iconic floor tiles, paying tribute to its origins as a social gathering space.

In the heart of the restaurant, a large open kitchen is over sailed by a striking blue sculpture that suggests a giant fish moving through the sea.

Within Bar & Billiard Room (BBR), Studio Jouin Manku has created a contemporary setting which is sympathetic to the colonial architecture but that will transport guests to the sea, the light, the tastes and the smells of the Mediterranean.

The light and bright interior is warmed by the lively yet fine tones of the upholstered armchairs and barstools from Ester collection, surrounding the centerpiece open kitchen. Designed by Patrick Jouin for Pedrali, Ester is a mix of ergonomics, elegance and functionality.

Its soft and graceful lines along with the great comfort offered by the seat made of polyurethane foam with elastic belts, result in a precious monolith made of leather, complemented by refined die-cast aluminium legs.

Thanks to its aesthetic and functional features, this collection contributes to make even more welcoming the most outstanding restaurant dining room on the international scene.

The enchanting setting is complemented by a wide atmospheric outdoor terrace, enveloped by tropical foliage. This vibe is enhanced by the presence of Panarea collection by CMP Design. The idea behind Panarea is rooted in the Mediterranean coastline, and in the colours and refreshing breeze of an outdoor dinner on a sea-facing terrace, on a pleasant summer day.

Light, sunny and elegant, these armchairs and lounge armchairs feature a traditional element hand-woven in Italy granting an elegant appearance, as well as a three-dimensional, graphic rigor.

On the seat rests a comfortable cushion padded in dry-feel polyurethane foam that dries quickly and is covered in fabric made from the same thread as that used for the woven element. Here the cushions are in terracotta tones, like the flooring, while the frame pairs with the grey hue of the woven element.

PANAREA

Design CMP Design

The idea behind Panarea is rooted in the Mediterranean coastline, and in the colours and refreshing breeze of an outdoor dinner on a sea-facing terrace, on a pleasant summer day. This collection of outdoor seats, including an armchair and a lounge armchair, feature a traditional element hand-woven in Italy as a sign of respect for and dedication to Italian craftsmanship.

The wide and curved backrest is woven in polypropylene cord which creates an original geometrical pattern and wraps around the tubular steel frame as far as the armrests.

This use of cord emphasises Panarea’s elegant appearance and optimizes the weave, resulting in a double curvature that gives the chair a three-dimensionality and graphic rigor, as well as making it transparent, easy to move and suitable for outdoor use.

The lounge armchair comes with a wide seat and a high backrest whose curvature traces virtually a circular space of relax and conviviality.

A comfortable cushion in dry-feel polyurethane foam that dries quickly and covered in fabric made from the same yarn used for the woven element.

Materials: Ø 20 mm steel tube frame powder coated for outdoor use, seat with steel slats, polypropylene cord. Seat cushion in dry-feel polyurethane foam upholstered with polypropylene yarn fabric suitable for outdoor use.

Finishes: beige frame with sand cord, terracotta frame with terracotta cord, blue frame with blue cord, black frame with grey cord. Sand, terracotta, blue, grey or pink cushion.
