Bar and lounge

A Coffee among Lumi!

Kohi Coffee is a young and dynamic venue in Boston (US) where you can have a quick stop to drink a great coffee alone or with friends. The space is large, airy and easy to move around thanks to its very simple and minimal furnishing. The materials used are simple, but the way they are combined gives great character to the environment.
Of particular interest are the polished cement floor, the light wood tables and the counter's covering of unpolished metal. Numerous hanging lights of Lumi in different sizes and shapes have been selected to illuminate and decorate the whole space with great delicacy and elegance, giving a truly contemporary feeling.

Majik Cafè

The Majik Cafè is a bar and restaurant in Belgrade (Serbia), right in the heart of the city’s entertainment district. The bar was designed and created by the famous designer, Karim Rashid, who is responsible for the very eccentric, dynamic interiors with bold contrasts of colour and shape.
Part of the lighting was created using Fabbian lamps. Right next to the entrance, a long line of Cricket spotlights illuminates the tables by the windows, while Zen recessed spotlights using LED technology in RGB bring the passageways and the kitchen to life, while in the unusual bathrooms, lighting is provided by Venere spotlights. This is a prime example of how Fabbian lamps contribute to and enhance design.

Bar Home&Spa Design 2011

On the occasion of the 2011 edition of the Fuori Salone Home&Spa Design of Milan, Fabbian was called on to help with the illumination of numerous spaces, including the lounge and bar area of the event. The project required a very essential and minimalist design that enabled the creation of pleasant, relaxing atmospheres during the frenetic exhibition of the Saloni di Milano.
The lamps chosen reflected the modern and elegant character of the design: the meeting area and bar area was illuminated using the beautiful Angle floor lamps in the black version, and the Flow table lamps. The bar counter was decorated with the small hanging lamps of the Bijou collection in the polished chrome version, while Beluga Colour recessed spotlights on the ceiling increase the overall illumination in the area.

Cathay Pacific Lounge - The Wing - Hong Kong Airport

Fabbian Illuminazione has realized the ambitious The Wing project, a glass and light sculpture designed by the famous firm of architects, Norman Foster + Partners of London and positioned inside the Hong Kong airport, as symbol of the Cathay Pacific airline’s VIP lounge.
China turned to the excellence of Italian creativity to produce a towering work: an ultra-clear glass lamp 6 metres long and 3.2 metres high, weighing about 8 and a half tons. In seeking a supplier to complete this project, the Chinese chose the Italian company Fabbian for its reliability, quality, but above all its manufacturing skills and ability to give shape to the architect’s idea while at the same time complying with Chinese airport regulations, among the most stringent in the world.
«We have not only manufactured a lamp…but a design object»
The Wing lamp is made up of 20 ultra-clear glass blades standing 3.2 metres high. Each is shaped differently from the other, according to the design of Foster + Partners, and is decorated with engravings which, lit up by LED sources hidden in the base, produce a breathtaking effect.
The lamp weighs 8500 kg: this is a huge load concentrated on an airport floor of limited strength and able to withstand a limited weight. A base had to be designed able to support a heavy weight, to contain the lighting devices, which was easy to transport and service, and which was also beautiful to look at.
The Wing is a concentrate of totally made-in-Italy lighting technology. The technological base, which supports a huge weight of 8500 kg and contains the LEDs, is completely concealed flush with the floor. The floor of the VIP lounge in black Carrara marble contrasts with the purity of the crystals lit up by a system of LEDs which create a spectacular reflection effect.

New Road Hotel (London)

For the restructuring of this building, which used to be a textile factory, the goal was to create a modern and informal space respecting the historicity of the place and its "industrial" feel. The renovation involved the preservation of a great number of walls in rough masonry and of the cast iron frames belonging to the original large windows and partitions, all in cast iron. For this purpose, the Freeline system was well suited, and thanks to the minimalism of its aluminium bars, it perfectly suited this context of industrial recovery, becoming the main lighting of the entire ground floor: hall, bar, restaurant, corridor, bathrooms, as well as the meeting & leisure room - where Freeline has been integrated into a modern home automation system. The project structures the system in different ways for all the different environments, creating straight lines, oblique, zigzag and "playing" using the three dimensions. In total, over 160 metres of Freeline structure and 113 light points were used, mainly "plates" (F45L12) while 7 spots (F45L02) were reserved for the lighting of the bar counter. The project manager and our client was CMT Design & Construction company from London, while the interior design project was designed by the architect Ian Hopwood, of Salisbury's Symthesis Architecture studio.

Murray Hotel: another prestigious collaboration with Foster+Partners

The project, by Foster+Partners, for the redevelopment and redesign of the interior of a building in Hong Kong, recognized as an important example of modern architecture, has recently been completed. The Murray, built in 1969 in the central business district of the city as the government's headquarters, became a luxury hotel just a few months ago, with 336 luxurious rooms, a rooftop bar, several restaurants and a space for events. The project is based on a continuous communication between old and new, which is why the Foster + Partners studio has chosen to collaborate with Fabbian again.
In the communal areas of the entrance and restaurant, five glass dividing walls of different sizes and considerable weight (up to 1000 kg) have been installed, consisting of numerous glass panels, the design of which is similar to the grid pattern of the hotel façade, all framed by a golden cover. On the walls, LED-lit panels have been installed, using glass panels on mirrors, to better reflect the shiny glass. Finally, two rectangular suspensions (200x60 cm) and a large oval (600x300 cm) have been created for the Rooftop bar, made up of large plates with numerous Cheope spotlights, encased in an Eulithe frame, a material which is similar to wood, but lighter and more synthetic, on which one can use finishes such as chrome plating. A unique and original work, entirely done by Fabbian on an executive project by Foster + Partners, which has restored character and life to an important building in the city.
With extensive experience and production quality, Fabbian has once again left an important mark on the history of design, a concrete demonstration of how the company is always ready and open to unique and tailor-made projects.

The magnificent Intercontinental London The O2 Hotel, couldn't have turned out better if it wasn't for our beautiful collections: Laminis and Multispot. It is three imposing glass panels to welcome the guests in the lobby of the hotel. Thanks to the possibiliy of customization, it was possible to give a complete new look to our Laminis.
Indeed, the standard glass tiles were mixed with completely new custom-made tiles that create a soft yet very sophisticated concentric effect.
Another brilliant solution was reached in the lighting of the staircase, where a rainfall of Multispot Tooby were set up like floating candles. The colour of the structure was customized in order to match the amber glass finish of the Laminis tiles.

Gusmay Resort Hotel

The Gusmay Resort Hotel is the modern restoration of an antique hotel in Peschici (FG, Italy), a pleasant seaside town along the beautiful Apulian coastline. It was designed and built with the precise aim of offering a sober, exclusive and functional hotel with sophisticated design and high-class furnishings and finishes.
This project was of great importance to Fabbian, because it led to the creation of the Clap collection: hanging lamps, wall lamps, table and floor lamps, designed by architect Jacopo della Fontana (D2U) during the renovation of the Resort. This collection is in fact visible in the guest rooms, in which the bedside tables are illuminated by the wall lamps while the living areas in the rooms are lit by the table and floor lamps. recessed spotlights from the Cricket collection with a rating of IP67 are used in the bathrooms, while the shower cubicles are illuminated by Faretti recessed spotlights. This is a clean, sober design that creates relaxing luxury.

Urban Hotel Design

The Urban Design Hotel in the historic town centre of Trieste is built over Roman ruins dating back to the first century, and on the inside is a blend of contemporary taste and ancient settings. The lighting installed involved the clever use of ultra-modern LED lamps and lighting fixtures, that succeeded in showing off the materials and colours to their best advantage.
In the entrance hall, next to the large sculpture by Simon Benetton, and above the reception desk, a 3-metre Sospesa lamp has been installed, that was made to measure and according to a nautical design. In contrast with the even light produced by this lamp are the lighting effects produced by the ceiling lamps and recessed spotlights from the Zen collection, in the corridors, while the recessed LED lamps from the Cricket collection enhance the original stone wall and ancient architectural relics. The bar counter is also illuminated with the same high-output LED spotlights, which produce a cold light, which contrasts with the colour of the Motion wall lamp and the four original Dono wall lamps with ‘drinking glass’ diffusers, which create unusual light reflections on the walls. In the guest rooms, all fitted with ultra-modern technology and furnished in a minimalist style to resemble the cabins of a luxury cruise ship, the irregularity of the shapes is enhanced by the asymmetry of the Motion wall lamps above the bedside tables.

Guarda Golf Hotel

The Hotel Guarda Golf is located at Crans-Montana, the renowned Swiss skiing resort in the heart of the Canton Valais, at an altitude of 1500 m, with wonderful views and an important “Jack Nicklaus” golf course. The hotel is fairly small in size, but distinguished by extreme elegance and attentive and personalised service.
The hotel features an international restaurant, another typically Valais restaurant offering traditional cuisine, a lounge area with large stone fireplace, two meeting rooms, a baby parking facility and a Spa with swimming pool and fitness room.
The Guarda Golf Spa is the showpiece of the hotel. It was designed by the firm Dada Architecture+Design of Arch. Davide D’Agostino. The accent features of the centre were to be the clean lines of the interiors and an atmosphere conveying a widespread feeling of relaxation to favour the psycho-physical well-being of guests. Starting with these inputs, the architect developed a rational layout plan – rational in terms of distribution of the interiors and, above all, rational as regards interior design.
The philosophy of this Spa therefore consists in providing excellence through simplicity: a simple location made with noble materials, to host simple but expert manual skills. A combination that ideally suits the mentality and style of the owners who hope, with this formula, to cater in an alternative way for the needs of the more discerning guests of this wonderful and singular holiday resort. Fabbian has lit up the entire Spa area and most other areas of the hotel with the Cubetto, Sospesa, Faretti, Venere, Beluga Colour, Beluga Steel, Vicky, Cricket, Style, Orbis, and From Gom collections.

This hotel was designed by the famous architect, Simone Micheli, and has a highly contemporary — almost futuristic — design, dominated by sinuous lines and bold contrasts.
The interiors are very modern and luxurious. Fabbian contributed to the illumination of this prestigious building with its recessed lamp collections, Cricket and Venere, in the LED versions to save energy and to create coloured lighting effects in RGB. These lamps can be seen in the corridors of the common areas along the full-length glass panels, so they create coloured effects that are also visible from the outside, in the guest rooms and in the Spa Centre.

Exhibition "Altino before Venice"

From the 15th of September to the 1st of November 2017, the San Giovanni Baptistery in Piazza Duomo in Treviso hosted the exhibition Altino before Venice and Fabbian Illuminazione was one of the technical sponsors of the event. The Freeline collection played its part perfectly: the three dimensional modular system made it possible to easily illuminate the display panels. Custom-made compositions were created, which illuminated the panels placed on both sides of the supporting structure, the compositions were anchored onto the structure itself, which allowed for saving space, without having to drill into the walls of the Treviso Baptisery.
Here are the photos of the exhibition, enjoy!

The exhibition ‘Armenia. Footprints of a Civilisation” - Museo Correr di Venezia

The exhibition ‘Armenia. Footprints of a Civilisation”is perfectly lighted up by Fabbian’s projectors.
The exhibition, designed by the architect Torsello, takes place at Correr Museum until 10 April 2012, and is organised by Gabriella Uluhogian, Boghos Levon Zekiyan and Vartan Karapetian.

This event is part of the V Centenary celebration for the printing of the first book in Armenian in Venice. It winds along a chronological, thematic path leading visitors to over two hundred works including some extremely rare manuscripts and miniatures.
Fabbian contributed to the Venetian exhibition with its Led projectors, Ombra and Orbis, used to light up works on walls and statues, and with a Led spotlight, Venere, used inside display cases.

Its led light, beam pointing flexibility and the fact that lighting can be customised make Ombra a really high quality performance museum projector. And the performance of both Orbis and Venere, the new generation, modern design spotlight with various light sources, is just as satisfying.

Ming's Exhibition

This is the title of the exhibition that has been set up in Ca dei Carraresi in Treviso (Italy), dedicated to the Chinese Ming dynasty in the golden years between 1368 and 1644. Over three hundred works will be on display at this venue, including golden statues, rare fabrics, furniture, precious jade objects, silk garments, as well as two imperial crowns, unique in their kind, and many other objects.
These hand-crafted objects have been illuminated by numerous lamps from Fabbian: hanging lamps and transparent, track-mounted ceiling lamps from the Beluga Colour, light up the glass display cases containing vases and statues, large and small lamps in dark wood from the Crio collection shed light on the furniture, while black Bijou hanging lamps provide illumination at the reception desk by the entrance.

Inca's Exhibition

This is the title of the exhibition housed by the Museum of Santa Giulia in Brescia (Italy), with numerous works on loan from the greatest museums of Peru. This exhibition aims, above all, to show to advantage the spiritual aspect of the ancient pre-Hispanic civilizations, their relationship with the gods, outer space and time, with reference to the places they considered to be sacred.
The hand-crafted objects on display include statues, ornaments in gold, masks, breast harnesses, anklets, hats and rattles, all priceless. To provide the best type of illumination of these objects and make their details and the precious materials used, Architect Alberto Torsello opted for Venere recessed LED spotlights with a colour temperature of 2700K. This recessed light with the most neutral colour possible ensures that the characteristics of the works on display are not altered.

Matisse's Exhibition

This is the title of the exhibition that will take place from February 11th to June 12th at the Museum of Santa Giulia in Brescia. The exhibition presents 180 works of the French artist, including paintings, drawings, prints and gouache découpées that studies the entire artistic production of his life: from his first works to the invention of the gouaches découpées. The production of Matisse will be analyzed in relation to the work of Michelangelo, the great Italian artist of the sixteenth century.
In particular two of the most important works by Matisse, like the painting entitled Pianist and draughts’ players and the gouache découpée named Veneri will be compared with an original drawing by Michelangelo showing two Venus.
The exhibition is curated by Claudia Beltramo Ceppi and assisted by a scientific committee composed of some leading scholars of Matisse. The art and lighting installation was designed by Arch. Alberto Torsello in collaboration with Maurizio Bernardelli Curuz, artistic director of the Museum of Brescia.
Fabbian and the architect Torsello gained a strong experience in the lighting of important exhibitions, sometimes together, for example in Inca. Origin and Mysteries of gold Civilization, or alone: Fabbian lighted The Secret of the Forbidden City in Treviso while Torsello experienced the exhibitions on Canaletto and Cima da Conegliano.
On the occasion of the Matisse exhibition, they have studied a new product: a museum projector that can satisfy the need for permanent structures such as museums, galleries and picture galleries of a balanced and precise lighting project that can make possible a correct view of the exhibits.
Ombra, unusual for the decorative tradition of Fabbian, is a unique product for his fusion of design research and innovation in LED technology. The project is perfectly suitable for demanding museum and retail applications that require the use of high-performance and low power consumption LEDs, a perfect color and object’s illumination, pointing flexibility beam and accessories able to customize your lighting.
The museum projector Ombra embodies all these characteristics. Through the use of the high color performance LED, Ombra doesn’t offset the color of the illuminated works, allows maximum flexibility with its three-axis pointing to independent points and the "laser pointer". In addition, compared with a traditional lighting system, the use of LEDs allows the cancellation of IR and UV radiation harmful to the works, the possibility to choose the color temperature, a decrease in heat load that reduce problems with air conditioning room, a drastic reduction in lamps’ maintenance due to their long life and cut in energy consumption and thus, indirectly, in the production of CO2.
Thanks to the technological quality of Ombra, Fabbian presents to the market a museum projector studied and designed specifically to this sector. The lighting of the Matisse exhibition is the perfect challenge for this new product.

Dolphine Energy Limited

Double crystal walls define the reception of the Abu Dhabi office of Dolphine Energy Limited, a company that has produced natural gas in the Middle East for over 25 years.
The original idea was inspired by the presentation of Tile during the Index exhibition in Dubai in 2011: this sparked the beginning of the working partnership between Fabbian and the international architecture and interior design studio Pringle Brandon Perkins + Will of Dubai.
Two walls of Tile, each one stretching six metres long, define the lobby: 2376 tiles of transparent crystal, interspaced by 48 amber-coloured tiles in turn illuminated by a waterfall of light create an eye-catching area that becomes the focal point of the room.

Gruppo Tonazzo Offices

The offices of the Tonazzo Group are situated on the upper floors of a modern skyscraper in the city of Padua. The rooms are very spacious and airy, also thanks to the full-length windows that offer a spectacular view of the city. The sophisticated design of the offices is made-to-measure, and for this reason it was decided to use Tile lamps to create dividing walls in this open-space office environment.
Tile is highly suitable because it fills and defines spaces, reflects the light that arrives from all angles and when lit, uses LED RGB technology to create unique, pleasant atmospheres even during working hours. This project also involved the use of Sky hanging lamps above the meeting room table and numerous white Factory hanging lamps over the single workstations.

Dada Architecture + Design headquarters

For Dada Architecture + Design poject, Arch. Davide D'Agostino tried out a new distribution and representation concept, unusual for an architecture and design firm. The idea was in fact to create an organization in which the operative and exhibitive components blend together and produce a unitary message.
Substantially, around a central creative core, a “design gallery” is developed in which objects, furnishings, sculptures and complete settings represent and communicate the résumé of the Firm’s design philosophy.
By visiting these spaces, already-acquired and potential clients thus have the chance to come into contact with a new form of communication, that which architect D'Agostino calls “Planning within the Project”. The bottom line is that the clients manage to develop their own projects, stimulated and inspired by the environment in which they find themselves.
Fabbian plays lead role in lighting up this project: notice the white Crio suspension lamp above the PC stations, the rectangular Sospesa lamp above the meeting table, a series of Giunco floor lamps creating a highly suggestive effect in the luxury bathroom setting, the Angle floor lamp and two Elle lamps lighting up the country chic lounge, further enhanced by a Tile lamp. A series of Cubetto suspension lamps light up the corridor and the pictures decorating it. The Cricket spotlights and the Slot light fitting complete the lighting of the large study.

The atmosphere in a private billiard room must be elegant and sophisticated, favouring soft but effective light. The private project at Saint Petersburg (Russia) establishes Tile as an important detail in the room: it decorates the walls, creating a soft light around the room, giving the luxury and sophistication that enhance the billiard table.
Installed as both an exclusive wall and as a glass wall light, Tile creates a really striking and extravagant atmosphere, managing as always to captivate modern and classic environments with its versatile and timeless style.

Roofer: new light for the Food Court in Varese (Italy)

The redevelopment of the catering area of the Shopping Centre in Gavirate by the Milanese studio Hit arcHITects has just ended. The goal of increasing the time spent there and attracting potential new customers, led architects to focus on enhancing the exclusive lake view, and creating new perspectives and points of view towards external features. A glass-lined balcony has therefore been created, as well as an outdoor area which has been designed for the warm seasons. The interior furnishings, well-finished and warm, are characterised by the natural tones of the oak wood panelling, the marble of the tables and the Maiolica benches. The atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing thanks to large islands of green plants and moss-covered walls. To decorate and make this large public space unique, the original Aérostat and white-scaled Roofer cone suspensions were incorporated, a strategic choice to give more character and a touch of sophisticated design to the whole environment.

In the project named ‘Intertwined places’ by the architectural study of Alberto Apostoli, more technical lamps were used and almost concealed to create pleasant lighting effects and amplify the cosy, warm feel of the room. Here we fine Beluga Colour recessed spotlights and ceiling lamps from the Orbis collection, with the light directed to create ‘cuts’ of light on the walls.
‘The spa of laziness’ by Marco Vismara&Andrea Viganò is a dynamic, colourful ambiance dominated by graphic, geometrical motifs.

A crystal stream in an “iron palace”

A beautiful Tile chandelier is the main feature of the shoe department at the luxury mall Palacio de Hierro in Mexico City. It was conceived so that it resembled a serpentine, developing across the whole length of the store and placed in the centre dividing the space in two halves.

Given the significant dimensions of the chandelier, the distribution of the glasses was designed so that the whole perception would be light and soft. For this reason, all the gaps between the glass Tiles make the chandelier look airy, just like a river of crystal sparkles flowing unevenly across the ceiling.

L'Eliseo Shop

The historical and traditional shop "Eliseo" of Caldiero Spa (Verona, Italy) was redesigned by the Arch. Alberto Apostoli. The concept, according to the project, born from the creativity- rationality dualism, and is developed through a sophisticated use of shapes, lights and colors.
Rationality is inherent in the use of square shapes made of crystal and metal; creativity is displayed mainly by three elliptical elements which rise vertically from the floor up to the ceiling, contributing to the division of retail space in three different areas: man, women and young.The LEDs, whose vertical and horizontal light, is used by the Apostles as the real cover material, run along all major lines of the shop and furnishings, transforming the latter into sources of indirect light.
Fabbian contributes to a more technical lighting: the recessed lights of the collection Plano, the light track system Orbis for showcases, the hanging lamps Kone, le applique Tube on the facade and the recessed lights Cricket e Venere.
