Hotel Camp Zero

Hotel CampZero is located in Champoluc, at the foot of Monte Rosa, and is the first Active Luxury Resort in the Aosta Valley for mountain, sport and well-being enthusiasts, where natural elements and an attention to detail come together in an extremely high-impact design that offers a unique and avant-garde experience.

This “sports” hotel, comprising 30 rooms of different types spanning two levels, a 25-metre pool, a well-being area, a fitness room, an indoor climbing gym and, in winter, a real ice waterfall down one of the external walls of the building, to be climbed in piolet traction, was the brainchild of former Fastweb owner Scaglia and his wife Monica, who fell in love with the Valley and particularly Ayas, the valley in which Champoluc lies.

A significant investment of 15 million Euro for a brand-new project, developed by the Architettura Bladidea Studio according to innovative yet also very naturalistic criteria.

 

The architecture fits perfectly with the alpine environment. The relatively modest built-up area comprises traditional medium-sized buildings, while the ground floor is situated below a Y-shaped “slab” with green coverage, the central section of which lifts up and links to the natural terrain at the three extremities, making the most of the morphology.

The slab is then intersected by a multifunctional central space, the “rock”, into which three blocks of ten bedrooms converge, its external walls partially used for the winter ice climbing (piolet traction).

The final result is that of a complex with a discontinuous skyline, the volumes of which integrate with the natural surroundings without removing the fringe between meadow and wood, in line with the development of some alpine villages around erratic rocks, the homes built up against them.

 

For this project, the Bladidea Studio opted to use very few materials, all rich in energy and style. Caesar proved to be the ideal partner for the elegant and functional dressing of the structure’s spaces, halls, bedrooms, bathrooms, sky room, service spaces and more besides, exploiting the vast range of looks and sizes available in the Made in Italy porcelain tile range.

The versatility of ceramic ensures aesthetic coherence with the countryside setting thanks to its ability to very realistically represent the environment with its colours, material inspiration and finishes. Stone, wood and metals serve as the inspiration for Caesar ceramics, the products retaining the natural look of the raw materials, and combining this with the functional and environmentally sustainable characteristics typical of made in Italy porcelain tile.

 

Stone, in its different essences, is a style chosen for many of the walls and floors in Hotel CampZero. The suggestive interpretation of Roxstones quartzite defines the bathroom and bedroom areas, while the Verse Blend Design, which draws on various finely chiselled stones, characterises the restaurant and kitchen. Stone also dominates in the technical variations used in the sky room, where the Lipico marble of Slab by Caesar Contract Solutions stands out, and the pool, where special pieces for the edge of the Aquae Wellness Project belong to the dedicated Absolute series.

The stylistic approach is rounded out with the Vibe wood-effect, used in the hall in various guises and shades, and the Trace metal effect in its Mint colour variant, of great visual impact.

 

The many aesthetic solutions offered by Caesar porcelain tile responded perfectly to the need for both high-level technological performance and environmental respect, two areas that Hotel CampZero includes among its main missions, thus making for a very valid partnership.

From real to virtual: Caesar plays the starring role at the Virtual Design Product Fair

Ceramiche Caesar has taken its latest new porcelain tile collections to the Virtual Design Product Fair, the digital platform which belongs to the first on-line design festival in the world, the VDF_Virtual Design Festival.

 

Produced by Dezeen – a well-known British magazine - and active between 15th April and 30th June 2020, the innovative format of the Design Festival features a schedule packed with interviews with famous names from the worlds of architecture and films, along with innovative product launches, live streaming and partnerships aimed at giving a new lease of life and renewed stamina to companies in the architecture and furniture industry.

 

Caesar took part in the initiative to demonstrate its futuristic approach to the market, which is capable of accommodating the difficulties and the major upheavals caused by the world-wide medical emergency with an extremely contemporary vision and designed to create synergy between real and virtual, also in the presentation of its new products.

 

So in a virtual context - such as the Virtual Design Product Fair – Caesar offers all the concreteness, hard work and passion of its team, presenting four porcelain tile series with a clear material inspiration.

 

Meet, Shapes of Italy,Enchant and Stoneways are in fact solutions that clad commercial and residential settings with originality, always guaranteeing the best performance levels in terms of styling and functionality. Caesar offers a double matrix – made in Italy for Meet and Shapes of Italy, made in USA and aimed at the US market for Enchant and Stoneways – as well as a double inspiration, linked to wood (Enchant and Meet) and to stone (Stoneways and Shapes of Italy).

 

The porcelain tile slabs in the made in Italy Meet collection constitute a charming encounter between the natural accent of wood and the flavour of a slightly worn material. From a stylistic perspective, the Meet collection has an extremely versatile soul, which lends itself to a host of interesting combinations with other Caesar products. The two different thicknesses (9 mm and 20 mm of Aextra20) and the broad range of decorations render Meet a modern solution, capable of combining the more natural aspects of the material with an impeccable stylistic design, for both indoor and outdoor settings.

 

The Italian production plant also gives rise to Shapes of Italy, a porcelain tile project consisting of 7 different stones that span the immense Italian cultural heritage, through a journey made up of elegance, historic wealth and beauty. The wide range of sizes (12), thicknesses (6-9-20 mm), surfaces (4 finishes) and decorations defines Shapes of Italy as an ally for architects and designers who wish to put together floor tiles, wall tiles and outdoor spaces with creativity and consistency.

Enchant is the collection by Ceramiche Caesar USA designed to bring to mind wood in its most intimate essence and replicate “the feeling of a walk through nature”. Indeed, its inspiration stems from the warm appearance of aged and painted wood, and the collection is available in three colours and two sizes to furnish the floors and walls of commercial and residential projects.

 

Also made in USA is the Stoneways series available in 4 different colours, the same number of stone material inspirations: travertine, Nordic stone, quartzite and sandstone define the neutral hues, embellished with vein patterns to make the style of the settings even more intense.

A new domesticity for a new world: including Caesar

We will wake up to a different world. Once the Covid emergency has passed and the risks have attenuated, we will not quickly go back to the way things were before: a new normality will accompany us for the first few months, until the eagerly-awaited vaccine is developed, and perhaps longer still, because some of our new behaviour will be acquired long-term. We will realise that some changes, which we made due to the emergency situation, have improved our lives, or have made our use of natural resources - along with our role in the eco-system - more sustainable.
