Compac Opens an Otherworldly Showroom in Spain
2022 Best of Year Winner for Showroom
Stone surfaces company Compac is in the business of matter. And it’s celebrating that dynamic with a new showroom, dubbed Salon Gandia for its location in the ancient Spanish city, that showcases its product through 13,000 square feet of avant-garde sculpture, art, and functional architectural elements. Since materials are the focus, Compac’s in-house team, along with design partner Venture, tapped a rock-star lineup consisting of sculptors Rubén Fuentes Fuertes and Arik Levy and firms Coffey Architects and GG Architects to craft a stunning series of installations that display the versatility of the manufactured marble, terrazzo, and quartz. Central to the space, and to Compac’s philosophy, is a courtyard with a tree that’s meant to represent the 30,000 the company has planted so far to offset its carbon emissions.
