Portus Beach Club opening
I just came back from Croatia where we opened "Portus", the new and exclusive beach club of Zadar's Marina Dalmacija.
The days preceding the project's delivery require a great concentration and are always hectic; Spaces have to be setup, custom made furniture has to be tested, the last finishes have to be completed and everything has to be checked and placed into position.
Even the smallest details belong to my creative process. The ‘mise en place’, for example, has been studied and thought together with the tables, with the fabrics and with the background tones. I caught the orange tones of this unforgettable sunset into the furniture's fabrics.
The lights and the sea reflections defined a suggestive and relaxing scenario.
The opening dinner represents a crucial moment.
Attending the event were the leaders of the Doğuş Group, company who commissioned the beach club project and which owns the Marina.
The presence of several public figures, such as Luka Modric, captain of the Croatian national football team and one of the Real Madrid most important players made me realize that the event had a significant echo.
I now understand that the audacious venture which I just completed was possible thanks to the energy of my team and to the excellent coordination established with the project manager.
I carry with me the satisfaction of observing the details which have been designed in these long months.
I watch "Portus" beach club from one of the floating sea platforms, with its opening another project has been concluded, it's now time to return home.
This is not my job, it's my passion.
