Opendesign is born: the new international Fabbian blog

Opendesign is on line: it’s the new blog with an international flavor where we present the Fabbian projects related to design, culture and art.

Opendesign is the exclusive witness of the most unique and inimitable projects of Fabbian Illuminazione.

This new blog is going to reveal the secrets about a very special Fabbian lighting project, born with one of the most famous architect study, that will be realized in a place heart of the world economy. A lighting project that is so special to become a symbol, a sculpture, a work of art.

So, don’t miss the story of this secret project: follow the blog!

A dinner with... lamps

In St. Petersburg (Russia), at the Salon Podium, was held "The Fabbian Gluttony," a very special dinner. The export area manager Alessandro Bottacin, aided by collaborators of St. Petersburg, has been delighting local architects and interior designers with an original blend of Italian cuisine ... and the design of Fabbian lighting. Two products of the company, Cubetto and Tile, have the opportunity to become containers for the most popular food in Italy, with a special focus on the Venetian cuisine.

It all started with the Venetian aperitif par excellence, Spritz, poured in to Fabbian transparent cube. Then the architects have tasted a salad of octopus and potatoes served on luxury plates: glass Tile, usually used to create walls of glass and light, have become the setting of this exquisite dish.

To conclude the evening, the excellent tiramisu, a flow of custard with finger biscuits and coffee inside the white Cubetto Fabbian.

A real treat for the eyes and the palate, accompanied by fine Italian wine. A different way to present the products Fabbian through an emotional and multi-sensory Italian journey.... staying in Russia.

Fabbian Tile lights up the luxury Skins Cosmetics Shop (Amsterdam)

A series of custom made Fabbian Tile light up the new Skins Cosmetics Shop in Amsterdam.

Skins Cosmetics opened a new shop in the Conservatorium Hotel, the iconic five-star hotel located in the heart of Amsterdam. Four Fabbian Tile ceiling lamps light up this luxury shop, where they sell high level cosmetics with an high-level service.

The Studio Rublek (Amsterdam) has designed very special Tile ceiling lamps, with a balanced equilibrium of empty and full, for a very modern effect, which fits perfectly with the interior design of the luxury shop.

This custom made version of the Tile is light, evanescent and poetic.

Fabbian lights up the new Dada Architecture + Design headquarters

For this project in Switzerland, architect 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 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.

The hotel Krasicki (Poland) takes the International Hotel Award

The four-star hotel Krasicki, lit up inside by numerous Fabbian lamps, took the International Hotel Award’s prestigious “Best International New Hotel Construction & Design” prize.

The hotel Krasicki, which occupies the ancient castle of the Polish city of Lidzbark Warmiński, was designed by architect Katarzyna Dzsus. The interior design of this four-star Hotel is a skilful blend of contemporary style and the very special medieval appeal of the ancient building.

The Crio suspension lamps in ebony light up the restaurant of the luxury hotel. The Elle floor lamps cast light on the facing stone in the lobby. While a composition of Tile lamps is protagonist in the meeting room.

Products

Quadriled: new product

This Marc Sadler lamp is finely finished and manufactured, and once and for all eliminates any prejudice concerning the presumed coldness of LED lights. The faceted transparent module combines a taste for Murano glass with the very latest polymer machining techniques. This light is made from transparent polycarbonate, available in four different colours: clear, with amber profiles, red or blue. Any colour touches around the edges do not change the intensity and quality of the light, which remains warm and enveloping.

Quadriled is available in recessed version with polished aluminium structure and in ceiling version with visible grey-painted structure. This light has been designed for easy installation, whether recessed or wall/ceiling mounted. It also provides top energy-saving performance thanks to 36 LED lights with excellent luminous efficacy and a consumption of just 15W.
The light fitting features integrated supply unit, while the recessed version requires a separate supply unit. This makes it possible to use several Quadriled lights together with a single supply unit, to stylishly light up a corridor or large room.

For more information, please read the technical data sheet of Quadriled

Enck: new product

Elegant, refined and slim, Enck is the new die-cast aluminium lamp, upshot of the creativity of designer Francesco Lucchese. Enck is based on the idea of light filtering through a slim, almost imperceptible structure. The shape is round, inspired by nature. The structure consists of two slot-in shells and is based on the idea of a sea-shell.
Enck is available in 3 colours: matt white, polished chrome, dull gold.

The quick-coupling to the base has been designed for utmost ease of assembly and maintenance. Only a slight pressure is required to detach the lamp from the wall-mounted bracket for easy cleaning and to facilitate any wall-painting requirements.
Bracket versatility also allows either wall or ceiling mounting; ideal for all lighting and furnishing requirements.

Roofer: new shapes and colour

Versatile is the most appropriate adjective to describe this collection of pendants designed for indoor installation. Roofer, ispired by the tiles of the roof, is available in three different shapes and five sizes and its well suited to be installed in large or small rooms. The choice of the light source, halogen or fluorescent, offers the opportunity to light properly both public and private environments. The universality of Roofer, in addition, turns out in the possibility to shorten the cables to install it as a ceiling lighting fixture. Finally, the colour range of the lamp allows any user to satisfy its own taste and, at the same time, to combine the lamp with the furniture.

The mounty
Customize your lamp: choose the colour and/or the chromatic sequence, then have fun to assemble it. Assembly is quick and easy. The three tone coloured scales, made of semi-rigid rubbery material cover five frames different in shape. The lower part is closed by a polymethylmethacrylate diffuser disk.

The Scales
The scales are made of semi-rigid rubber material and are machine washable at 30°C. This feature combined with its ease of installation, make Roofer an original and innovative lamp.

Culture

Fabbian lights up the Milan Cathedral Glass Octagon

Fabbian Illuminazione took part with generosity and enthusiasm in the Milan Cathedral project called “Glass octagon to link heaven and earth”, based on an architectural project by Gianni Arlunno and contractor Paolo Criveller. This is a clear-glass structure which, inside Milan Cathedral, accommodates the information point and bookshop. Fabbian Illuminazione supplied all the lighting apparatus.

In particular, Fabbian designed, specifically for the purpose, 75 spotlights in chromed metal with minimal look, suitable for lighting up the books to be arranged on the glass shelves of the bookshop.

On the outside, the structure is lit up by 8 Cricket spotlights which project warm light upwards; inside the structure, another 8 Cricket spotlights light up the top part of the glass dome. Protagonist of the inside lighting is a Sospesa lamp measuring one metre by one metre: its ethereal and transparent structure well integrates with the construction philosophy of the Octagon. Finally, 4 Orbis spotlights and 4 Star spotlights back up the inside lighting at workstations.

Fabbian lights up the Correr Museum in Venice

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.
