technology, aesthetics and performance enhance the palazzo
The company’s compromise between high-tech design, aesthetics and performance is successfully manifested in Alessandro Borghese’s “AB – Il Lusso della Simplicita‘, where NANO track systems, powerful light and rich decorations create a synthesis that only further complements the cultural heritage of the Venetian palazzo. Rising around the city’s canals, the Milanese restaurant was designed by architect Alfredo Canelli and furnished by Cierreessewhile Buzzi & Buzzi complete the project by bringing it to light.
The funnel pendant lights above the bars do nothing to hide their iconic shape
The diverse facets of the company are demonstrated by the funnel Pendant lights do nothing to hide their distinctive shape. Direct light falls from the ceiling from a fully recessed cabinet to enhance the piano bar, while seen from above and below, the white version creates a stark contrast with the gold of the walls and the green of the marble inserts. The color and finish of the product can be customized with any color to emphasize its contemporaneity.
In addition, Buzzi & Buzzi took over the combination between the for the bar counter genius Recessed spotlights and the Funnel pendant lights. Genius is an incredibly powerful recessed spotlight for the size of the exit hole, which is just 20mm in diameter. The product, also present in the twin genius double version, adds a discreet and elegant integration into the architecture, almost disappearing into the surface.
The funnel hanging charms can be customized in color and finish with any color
Sheet is the semi-recessed lamp that emerges from the folds of the wallpaper with its characteristic clean cuts, reminiscent of the slashes of the Argentine-Italian painter Lucio Fontana. Specially designed to become an integral part of walls or false ceilings, the customization possibilities go further than you would expect. As seen in the restaurant, the internal surfaces near the light source have been decorated with gold leaf: this not only adds a touch of sophistication, but also creates a soft and even warmer and more pleasant light.
