06/05/2020 - Situated in a unique position on lake Geneva, Le Bellevue in Montreux is the restaurant of the Glion Institute of Higher Education, one of the world's most influential colleges in the field of Hospitality Management. This restaurant is designed to train the leaders of tomorrow in the hospitality industry but it also welcomes gourmet enthusiasts. Chairs and armchairs from Ester Collection, designed by Patrick Jouin for Pedrali, were selected for the restaurant.
A location characterized by a strong historical reference: the name Le Bellevue is taken from the iconic hotel originally located in this XIX century building, recently renewed by architects Michel Gicquel and Natacha Froger. They have been able to wisely join contemporary details and iconic design furniture with the original boiserie, while retaining that sense of Belle Époque that gives elegance and warmth to the whole setting. The stunning endless view of lake Geneva and the Alps merges with the environment through a wide glass wall serving as background while offering a dreamlike natural scenario with which Pedrali furniture harmonises beautifully.
Chairs and armchairs from Ester Collection with their soft and sinuous shapes, the attention to the detail of the die-casted alumimium legs and the absolute comfort assured by a seating made of polyurethane foam with elastic belts, contribute to make even more welcoming the restaurant dining room, and allow to fully contemplate a breathtaking scene, a priceless view of the Alps reflected in the water. Ester barstools are the key decor element of the bar.
Ester collection of seating is a mix of elegance, ergonomics and functionality. The attention to details is everywhere. The result is a precious monolith made of leather complemented by refined die-cast aluminium legs or central fourstar steel base, with or without castors. Seat made of polyurethane foam with elastic belts on a steel structure. The collection includes chair, armchair, stool and pouf.
