The staircase of the Boston Real Estate Investment has been made even more shinier by a massive Tile wall installed on the first floor ceiling which reaches the ground floor. Even a professional environment such as an office space can become classy and refined, thanks to the right installation and to the right material. The use of a glass banister, along with the large windows, makes the use of Tile in the staircase leading to the relax area just right.

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.

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.
In the extra-luxurious offices of GGICO Properties in Dubai (U.A.E.) special areas have been created for moments of relax, to be used during working hours or during breaks during important meetings.

Tile lamps have been installed in these areas to enhance the ambiance making it even more elegant and luxurious.
These lamps only serve the purpose of providing light but are a unique decoration in their own right.
The offices of Itas of Castelfranco Veneto are simple, ordinary spaces arranged to accommodate a large number of employees who work here daily, and customers.

Thanks to their sophisticated, futuristic design, they make the spaces more interesting and pleasant and the indirect up-lighting makes it possible create pleasant lighting effects.

The Administrative headquarters of the City of Voronezh in Russia are lit by a series of custom-made Tile lamps. The interior design is the work of the UNK Project study of Moscow, which involved the creation of custom-made Tile lamps (on the ceiling and walls), with inserts in amber-coloured glass and a gold-coloured finish to create a more luxurious style.
Each room is characterised by exquisite materials and finishes, such as highly-prized red marble on the floor and white marble on the walls and classic pillars. Tile lamps do not only fit in perfectly but enhance these interiors, thanks to the fine quality and sparkle of the crystal and gold finishes.

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.

OPTIMUM LIGHTING SOLUTIONS FOR THE WORKPLACE
The offices of 2Effe Engineering in Brescia (Italy), are a spacious and well organised working environment. The furniture and finishes chosen are modern, in neutral shades with coloured elements that brighten up the ambiance.

The new Fantoni Showroom is situated in the centre of Milan. It is designed on an advanced concept of the contemporary workspace that goes beyond space, furniture and traditional technology. Fabbian Illuminazione was one of the three partners chosen to participate in the project, and really showed the best it has to offer in technology.
In the entrance hall, on the false ceiling made in sound-absorbent material painted in a shade of natural wood, a sort of bar code has been painted with the Zen Black system, in which alternate blocks of orientable lamps have been installed with halogen QR111 and metal halide light sources. On the remaining part of the ceiling, single, fully recessed lamps with fluorescent light bulbs from the Zen collection have been fitted at regular intervals.
