Salone Milano Day 3: Vondom …


Vondom have released a tonne of new seating, tables and accessories.

Famous for their use of glamour models in promotional imagery it came as no surprise to find these beauties roaming around the Vondom stand. In stark contrast to Sancal, their neighbours in Hall 10, Vondom shone with brilliant white surfaces, mirrored and reflective plastic plinths and in perhaps homage to Times Square, the largest screen we saw at Salone Milano.




At first count, Vondom exhibited over 15 new collections from established partnerships with Karim Rashid, Ramon Esteve, Fabio Novembre, Ora Ito, A-Cero and new relationships with well known designers such as Jorge Pensi, Estudi{h}ac, Gabrielle + Oscar Buratti, all bearing the Vondom trademark of roto-moulded plastic.





We’re still recovering from the sensory overload that was Vondom Milano 2014, so we’ll save a rundown of the new product for our Post-Guide, and leave you with these images.

Ramon Esteve’s Camo Rug Will Stand Out …

Quickly and expertly expanding their range of outdoor rugs and carpets, Spanish manufacturer Vondom employs the ever-popular camouflage print in their new floor covering Camo by Ramon Esteve.

Again utilizing the skills of Spain’s Ramon Esteve (creator of Vondom’s super popular Faz and Vela collections), Camo is sure to impress the most fastidious of fashionistas – particularly with its recent launch at Maison & Objet, Paris.

Available in four tonal/colour combinations held within the rectangular shape, each camo print is blurred, assisting either its original intention of chameleon camouflage, or also holding the potential to contrast with furniture and accessories.

Camo falls into the larger range of Vondom outdoor rugs.  These highly patterned, hard-wearing rugs are resistant to the harshest weather conditions. They also perfectly complement the style ethos of the company.  The collections are made of a synthetic material developed especially for Vondom, which can be easily cleaned using high-pressure water and a brush.  See the video below to see a sample of the collection.

Pezzetina – The Floral Collection from Vondom …


Designers Claudio Dondoli and Marco Pocci first met at Florence’s prestigious Faculty of Architecture in the early 1980’s.   Following their time studying together, and a shared interest in drama and theatre, they founded Archirivolto Design in Colle Val D’Elsa.  For the past 15 years, working with major design brands including Bonaldo, Pedrali and Segis, this Tuscan design studio has heavily concentrated on the link between innovation in material and construction and the way in which a product can work for a consumer.

It is no coincidence then that the studio found itself hard at work with the innovators of outdoor furniture, Vondom.  Pezzetina, is their second collaboration with Vondom and follows their first collection Fiesta, potentially the worlds coolest illuminated bar.




Presented at imm Cologne in January, Pezzetina is a collection inspired by nature in its form, celebrating the bloom and opening petals of a flower whilst utilizing innovation in material construction.  Archirivolto Design’s move away from geometric forms reimagines the relationship between human engagement with the natural environment, fostering a balance between technology and nature in the built environment.


Pezzetina is available now from KE-ZU.

INSTALLED: Top Ryde City …

Sancal & Vondom products from KE-ZU. Specified by The Source Room

Top Ryde City in north-west Sydney has been revamped by The Source Room. We provided a swag of Vondom planters and Sancal’s Boomerang Chill Chair to assist with the redesign of the shopping centre’s rest areas.

Over 30 Vondom planters of varying sizes were installed around the centre, helping to separate space and provide an injection of greenery and life. The diamond pattern and deep hues of the Vases Macetero by JM Ferrero and the Centro Alto by Studio Vondom complement the contemporary shape of the Boomerang Chill chair by Quim Larrea.

Scattered throughout the shopping centre, the Vondom and Sancal products are perfect for the new-look space with their clean lines and formal simplicity. We think they look great, don’t you?!

The Art Player – Enter Mariscal’s World …

The wildly charismatic Spanish designer and artist Javier Mariscal, designer of many pieces available at KE-ZU has undertaken a new project, The Art Player at the Hangaram Museum in Seoul, Korea.  The exhibition is currently showing until 22 March.

The exhibition leads its visitors through the designer’s creative process, dissecting it to reveal three clear spaces:

SKETCHES ROOM: This first space of the exhibition separates itself from the balance of the exhibition by suspending black and white sketches drawn by Mariscal. In a Being John Malkovich-esque way, we understand this space is like entering Mariscal’s mind and shows how the artist visualizes his ideas.

Vondom's Moma stool and Mora light - designed by Mariscal & available at KE-ZU

Vondom's Moma collection - designed by Mariscal & available at KE-ZU

Vondom's Sabinas sofa and Mora light - designed by Mariscal & available at KE-ZU

M114's Green Chair - designed by Mariscal & available at KE-ZU

COLLAGE LANDSCAPE:  This space shows Mariscal’s illustration style come to life, utilising sketches as furniture coverings while animated screens highlight his drawing style.  Showcasing his artistic versatility, this exhibition space is where many of the furniture pieces Mariscal has designed for KE-ZU suppliers Vondom and Mobles114 are displayed (all Mariscal’s products for these two suppliers are available at KE-ZU). 

COLOURS PARADE: The final stage of the exhibition introduces you to the many characters of the Marsical family, his illustrated friends in his unmistakable style all coming together.

The Art Player is a fabulous exhibition. It is so exciting to see each facet of Mariscal’s work artfully pieced together under one roof!  Our images were taken from Mariscal’s website, where the video below is available!

FFF – Happy Chinese New Year! …

It seems that luck is falling our way this week!  With Chinese New Year landing today, we transition from year of the water snake to year of the wooden horse.

It’s with luck then that we have our own horse en route to become our mascot for the proceeding year!  Our little mate Rosinante is coming to join the KE-ZU family, perhaps as our new mascot.  Rosinante is the rocking horse which forms part of the Vondom kids collection.  He gets his name from the fictional horse character belonging to Don Quixote – our Spanish-speaking employees inform us was a staple on their reading shelves as children.  All this horsing around reminds us of our post many moons ago about our favourite Brazilian Girl Sabina – who very excitingly is releasing her new album shortly!

So in our own little round-about way, we’re rocking out to Chinese New Year!   Wishing anybody celebrating Chinese New Year a great day, and an even better year.  Giddy up!

Vondom’s Visit to the Zu! …

Recently Prospero, the export manager for Vondom came to visit the KE-ZU showroom all the way from Spain.   On a whirlwind overseas tour meeting, greeting and spreading the Vondom word, Prospero came to talk to KE-ZU staff about exciting new collections soon to drop from the cutting edge supplier, including seating collections, outdoor rugs and a whole new direction in child-focused furniture.

We don’t want to give too much away at the minute, but we’re happy to give you a preview of some of the planters we’ve ordered for the showroom – these represent some fabulous indoor and outdoor pieces which form the home for plants and decorations; suitable for both the home and contract environments… we’ve chosen Curvada Nano, Vasija Cuadrada and Organic Redonda – some of the Vondom catalogue images are below – for the entire Vondom catalogue click here.

Excitingly, Prospero came bearing other gifts – the news of the DMX controller for illuminated Vondom products.  We all know that many Vondom pieces have the ability for illumination and colour change through an RGB scale, now, the beauty of the DMX system is its pairing with the illuminated pieces and can now wirelessly controlled both individually and in a group.  The DMX system ties together chosen products and allows full control of their illumination, both on colour and synchronicity – the best mate of any function, hotel or outdoor space needing a bit of wow.   Words can’t describe how cool this is so we’ll let this video from Vondom below do the trick:

INSTALLED: Surf in Tassie! …

Finding itself in the heart of Hobart, Tasmania – Avalon City Retreat speaks volumes about the creativity which thrives in the Australian Island State. The location of Avalon City Retreat provides easy access and stunning views to both the City, rivers and ocean surrounding the Tasmanian capital.

Touted as an “ominpiod”, this stand alone two bedroom, two bathroom hotel is a retreat which sits on top of an office building – that building designed by Dutch architect Dirk Bolt, best known for his post WWII modernist architecture.

The beauty of the Retreat is its tasteful blend between both design and relaxation.  Merging the two in an effortless display of both history and design progression.  This then becomes the perfect platform to showcase the Surf Lounger, designed by Karim Rashid for Vondom (and of course, available at KE-ZU!).

Recently installing the Surf Lounger onto the impressive deck attached to the Retreat, we were so impressed to see the results! Surf Lounger’s fluid shape and ability to illuminate in various colours, made it the perfect choice for its new home amongst the lineal timber of the deck.

The entire Vondom catalogue is available at KE-ZU, including many of Rashid’s designs.  Check into the Blog soon for some new Vondom product on its way to the KE-ZU showroom!
