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.

Creating the right atmosphere in certain places is the key to their success. Among these places, Kanji Light fusion restaurant required a very special setting. The result was a contemporary location with a colourful twist that creates a dramatic visual effect and an impressive impact.
Our Laminis is perfect in such an innovative and forward-thinking environment: the three glass panels divide the space of the room, enhancing the center of the room itself. It is a great inspiration for all those projects that want to include a scenographic effect.

In Saint Petersburg in a young, dynamic part of the city, the small but pleasant Ristorante Italia has been opened. The colours and wooden elements of the furniture create a warm, cosy atmosphere, making it the ideal place in which to while away the hours with friends or family. The lamps chosen to make this restaurant unique are five Roofer hanging lamps in different colours, which illuminate the long row of central tables.
This lamp was designed by Benjamin Hubert. It has an unusual, contemporary design that distinguishes any room in which it is installed. It runs on low-energy light bulbs and the rubber scales are machine-washable.
The Tiramisù Restaurant in the Marina di Venezia camp site in Cavallino, in Venice, Italy, is a superb example of how a simple lamp can become not only a distinctive decorative element, but the main theme of an entire furnishing project. The colour scheme and natural materials used to decorate this restaurant were in fact chosen around the Stick hanging lamp by Matali Crasset.
The proximity to the sea and incontaminated pine forest, together with the warm, natural tones of the furnishings, make this atmosphere relaxing and pleasant, whilst the materials of the Stick lamp the entire setting unique.
