The most avant-garde product accompanies Actiu to the International stars of the Starlite Festival in Marbella
Starlite is a benchmark social and cultural meeting in Europe, which is held every summer for a month, in the natural amphitheater that is in the quarry of Marbella. One of the fundamental pillars is the Starlite concerts, intimate and close, top international artists such as Enrique Iglesias, Lenny Kravitz, Julio Iglesias, Placido Domingo, Alejandro Sanz, Laura Pausini, Amaia Montero, Melendi, Lionel Richie, and Anastacia, who accompanied a variety of art exhibitions, film premieres, performances, fashion and gastronomy.
30 years ago, three visionaries came together to make the quarry in Marbella a unique natural auditorium and who wanted to create a music festival. It has since become an international benchmark. Those visionaries were the Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe, Julio Iglesias and Placido Domingo, who submitted their project with a concert by the tenor in 83. After three decades, Starlite has recovered the essence and soul of a telling project. The entrepreneurial couple formed of Ignacio Maluquer and Sandra García-Sanjuán consolidated the project Starlite in 2013.
Starlite also remembers the most disadvantaged and every year, Starlite Gala, celebrates one of the most important charity events in Spain, aimed at helping various foundations working to improve education, health and living conditions of communities, families and underprivileged children, and which is hosted by Antonio Banderas.
The design of the space is reinvented and redesigned each new edition. For Starlite 2015 the architect Hector Ruiz Velazquez was selected by the organisation to make its mark with a new design of the enclosure that invited passers-by to explore it and make it their own. Ruiz Velazquez selected some of the most innovative and iconic pieces from Actiu to form part of the decoration of the multiple environments that make up this event.
The place is unique. A quarry with rock walls 60 meters high surrounded by nature that forms an amphitheatre with perfect acoustics to enjoy with the five senses of leisure under the stars. The cafe area according to the Millennium project was furnished with the award winning Wing chair. This chair represents the technological evolution of the traditional wooden chair and has been recognised by the prestigious IF Design and Red Dot 2015. Celebrities who passed by Starlite this year were interviewed in one of the most iconic chairs by Actiu: Badminton, a wraparound and sophisticated seat which invites the imagination to fly of whoever occupies it.
Shey fits in like pieces of a puzzle to create little oasis where you can replenish energy levels and enjoy relaxing moments. This was the exact use that was given to the architect Hector Ruiz Velázquez to this collection of modular seating by Actiu, splashing freshness into different areas at Starlite that Shey brings.
Starlite is endorsed by the Spanish Brand, considering it is a great ambassador of Spain in the world. From July 18 to August 22 this event will transport both artists and participants to the best and most varied of Spanish summer nights.
