Here is a glimpse of what can be expected at Reflections at Keppel Bay:

Sedna Reflections


With the stunning Keppel Bay as backdrop, the 755sqm clubhouse at Reflections at Keppel Bay will feature the world's first interactive designer kitchen by eminent Spanish artist and food designer Marti Guixe.

 

Guixe is the winner of the prestigious National Design Price of the Generalitat de Catalunya Award (2007) whose work is found in prominent museums around the world including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, USA and the Centre d'Art Contemporain in Geneve, Switzerland.

 

Sedna Reflections is a creative fusion of food design and technology. This state-of-the-art interactive designer kitchen complements the masterpiece which is Reflections at Keppel Bay. The kitchen top surface is fitted with an innovative projection display system that will screen specially-created recipes to guide residents or chefs in whipping up delectable cuisine. The Sedna Reflections is a fit with the opulent lifestyle of home owners as they entertain in style.

 

Furnishings at the Tower Lobbies of Reflections at Keppel Bay

Setting new benchmarks in the world of design are six unique and innovative benches, finer details of which are still being reviewed, that will become focal point at the six tower lobbies of Reflections at Keppel Bay.

 


Supernova by Mauro Lipparini features an unconventional use of optical fibres integrated into high-gloss polyester lacquer, with natural elements such as wood and stone, to create a magical effect of irregular lighted waves. The asymmetrical shape of these illuminated benches gives a touch of originality and style.


Endless is a creation by acclaimed Tuscan architect Claudio Nardi, the brainchild for many award winning structures including the New Contemporary Art Museum in Poland, and is renowned for his 'transformation' theme. His creation for Reflections at Keppel Bay is a collection of seat blocs which can be rearranged to fit any space. Easily assembled and disassembled, Endless is an adaptable furniture piece with almost no limitations.


Park Associati, which is helmed by Filippo Pagliani and Michele Rossi and has won awards such as the Italian Architecture Triennale Gold Medal, created the Black Boulder. The Black Boulder is made of a sequence of irregular surfaces, complete with grips that 'transforms' it into a children's climbing wall as well.


The Bosquet by Paul Andreu, who designed the Osaka Maritime Museum in Japan and the National Grand Theatre of China in Beijing, is a centrepiece that enhances the simplicity of its surroundings. An unconventional and sophisticated bench made up of a circular block of solid wood and a irregular 'forest' of steel bars, the Bosquet also features lit-up optical fibres for a subtle, yet classy effect.


In addition to his interactive designer kitchen creation, Sedna Reflections, Marti Guixe will also lend his artistic vision to one of the tower lobbies with his artistic flair of curves as seen in his Looop design, which has been exhibited at the Fonadzione Arnaldo Pomodoro in Milan, Italy.


The sixth designer piece will spot creations by Tiziano Vudafieri and Claudio Saverino of Vudafieri Saverino Partners; known best for their retail design projects for luxury pret-a-porter brands and has completed more than 350 individual store designs for luxury brands such as Kenzo, Moschino, Jimmy Choo and Louis Vuitton. One of their notable creations is the Wanny, an inspiration from the interaction between humanity and nature.

Complementing these exclusive items are some of Saporiti Italia's most iconic furniture pieces which will be found in the clubhouse. These include the Couture dining chairs, the Dania bar stools and the Nuance armchairs.

 

Designed for one of the oldest and most luxurious watch makers in the world, Vacheron Constatin, the stylish Couture armchair features an elaborate hand stitched upholstered surface intricately sewn by an artisan.

The Dania is an elegant and contemporary barstool featuring a rotating chromed steel base and upholstered leather seat.

The Nuance arm chair focuses on the aesthetic of soft and light shapes. The straight and simple lines of the chair give it a versatile and universal look while its frame and its surface colours create a delicate contrast.
