The “Il Sereno” swimming pool on lake Como

Impertek supports at the super luxurious hotel by Patricia Urquiola “I love colours, the light that changes throughout the day, the green and blue reflected in the water, the clear lines of the mountains and the sky.”

This is how the famous Spanish designer, Patricia Urquiola, describes Lake Como, the place that inspired Manzoni’s The Betrothed and Rossini’s Tancredi, where Napoleon,  Foscolo, Stendhal and Lord Byron strolled.

A few steps away from the Pliniana source – the stream mentioned by Pliny the Elder in the first century BC and studied by Leonardo da Vincilies the super luxurious “Il Sereno” hotel, managed and renovated, together with Villa Pliniana, by Luis Contreras (Sereno Hotels group) in collaboration with Patricia Urquiola.

A constant dialogue between Landscape and Architecture, Design and Nature: the atmospheres of the 50s echo in the 30 suites of the hotel, influenced by Scandinavian shapes and Japanese shades, with chairs and beds in woven rope, sofas in fabric and leather, stone and steel that blend with the wood, and the windows through which one can see the blue- green reflections of the lake.

The Spa is designed by Valmont, whereas Moroso, Cassina and B&B Italia have furnished the reception and the restaurant of  the Michelin-starred chef, Andrea Berton.

Outside, the horizontal garden, created by Flavio Pollano with 183 different plant species, smells of myrtle and lavender and  blends  in with the vegetable wall of the celebrated, Pat- rick Blanc, inventor of the vertical garden.

The swimming pool overlooking the lake is in Brazilian karst stone with an ash deck and rests on self-levelling and adjustable supports from Impertek’s PEDESTAL LINE range.

Supports made of recycled and recyclable material by the company that in the last thirty years has distinguished itself in Europe and in the rest of the world for high quality products entirely Made in Italy, innovative and attentive to the installation requirements that can be seen on site.
