A fruitful collaboration between Italian company Fabbian Illuminazione and Dada Architecture + Design resulted in a fascinating retail space for the latter. The architecture studio’s Switzerland headquarters was brightly lit by a selection of beautiful, elegant lamps that compose a unique atmosphere, aimed at developing the new distribution and representation concept the brand has in mind. Working on this project, architect Davide D’Agostino was able to “create an organization in which the operative and exhibitive components blend together and produce a unitary message.”

The studio’s design philosophy now resides in a carefully constructed space, where objects, furnishings, sculptures and complete settings join visual and tactile forces to inspire the client when choosing the desired design path: “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 Crio Bianca 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.”
