A golf club that plays with the aesthetics
American golf course designer Kyle Philips designed Golf Club Bernardus in Cromvoirt (The Netherlands). An extraordinary prestigious project for which architect Pieter Laureijs developed the furniture in collaboration with Borek outdoor furniture. They chose the ultra-compact Dekton surface both for its attractive design, which fitted in with the aesthetic line of the project, and its high resistance outdoors.
Golf Club Bernardus, situated in the rural area of Brabant in the south of the Netherlands, is the newest golf course of The Netherlands and has the allure to become the number 1 golf court of the country. Next door to the country club a restaurant with a terrace has been realized which accommodates not only as a ‘19th hole’ for golf players, but is also open for public. The restaurant Noble Kitchen with adjacent terrace on Bernardus is being run by Michelin star chef Edwin Kats of restaurant Noble located in Den Bosch (1 Michelin star).
A material designed to endure the weather
The prestigious Golf Club had high standards for the terrace, which has to convey luxury and comfort in all weather conditions. In collaboration with Borek and Cosentino golf course designer Laureijs designed a custom-made chair and tables especially for the terrace of Bernardus.
For the tabletops Dekton by Cosentino was chosen, due to the extraordinary characteristics of the material: Uv-resistance, resistant to abrasion, ice and thawing, stains and sudden differences in temperature. This makes Dekton very suitable for indoor and outdoor applications. Several tabletops were designed in different round, square and rectangular measurements. Worktops in 2 cm where made out of Dekton Trilium. This color has an industrial urban look and has been inspired by oxidized steel, which gives a rough appearance perfect fort his special location. As an extra advantage, this color consists for 80% out of recycled materials and brings an environmentally friendly choice.
``Dekton Trilium is inspired by industrial atmospheres to offer that interesting aspect of rusty space``
