CARTAGO and ALP in charge of lighting up this community garden

Suministros Electricos Gabyl has chosen the CARTAGO lamp and the ALP beacon from Faro Barcelona, for one of its latest projects. It is for the complete renovation of the garden and the swimming pool in an urbanization near Madrid. The combination of the two lamps provides a general lighting, but especially highlight the rest areas and hammocks, illuminating the central wooden porch. The CARTAGO street lamps are located closer to the pool creating a small path while the ALP beacons surround the grass garden. Thanks to the IP54 of both luminaires, these models from Faro Barcelona are the best option for open spaces such as gardens and terraces just like in this project; ideal for lighting many nights of summer bathing.

CYLINDER lights up the new Multiópticas store in Gran Canaria

Cubica Es+udio is responsible for the new Multiópticas store in Gran Canaria. The objective was to create a comfortable and warm environment for the store, placing special emphasis on a functional but personal aesthetic.


“The purchasing experience or the mere fact of accessing the store to see a product, is like being at home, with a spatial sense of comfort” tells us the architectural study when we ask about the main objective of this comprehensive project.


To carry it out the store has a gable roof that makes it recognizable and that gives it a greater sense of spaciousness. This type of roof influences the lighting, with this we intend to give it a sense of depth.

Cubica Es+udio gives special importance to lighting, as it is an important aspect to look for the desired environment. For the product lighting part, Faro Barcelona’s CYLINDER spotlights have been used. They allow to direct the point of light and it matches perfectly with the comprehensive lightning offered by Grupo Faro’s Projects team.


The rails with adjustable spotlights are responsible for lighting the frames and thus matching the general lighting with the focal. The use of different materials for the optical product and sunglasses display is a statement of intent.


“The displays were designed in an oak wood finish, for the sunglasses display, giving a greater warmth to a product related to the sun. In addition, the incorporation of vegetation in said display enhances the fresh and summer image with which the client mentally associates the purchase of the article. For the display of the optical glasses, a soberer image is used” specifies the study when talking with passion about the project.

As you can see in the pictures, the result is a warm store that embraces the visitor from the beginning and accompanies it with a warm light from the time it enters until it leaves. A cozy and homely space with a modern minimalist style.

Faro Barcelona participated at Casacor Paraguay

Faro Barcelona was one of the companies chosen to light two of the spaces of the first edition of Casacor Paraguay: the environment of the Sustainable House and the Prosa y Vino Gallery.


Together with our official distributor in Paraguay, Electropar, Faro Barcelona was in charge of giving light to both spaces. The Sustainable House has an industrial style area where iron, glass and vertical gardens stand out. For the entrance, a set of different WHIZZ, in gold colour and visible filament light bulb were used to create a relaxed and diaphanous atmosphere that invites people to visit it.


In the living room, we used two NAN projectors in black colour which, thanks to its rail system, extend the general lighting and highlight the area of the monitor. On the dining room table, the SIDE pendant by Alex & Manel Lluscà illuminates the table and at the same time delimits the area.


Finally, in the bathroom, the glass pendant LIZ-2 fits in this area illuminating it in a very original way. The glass creates a contrast with the wood of the wall and the reflection of the bulb against the mirror makes the space look bigger and better illuminated.


On the porch, a relaxation area, we used TECTO ceiling covers, joined together three by three, and producing a homogeneous general illumination. In the uncovered area we find the GROW beacon by Estudi Ribaudí, with the garden accessory that integrates perfectly in the outdoor area.


In the trees, graciously hung, portable CAT in red colour. A very popular lighting style that takes advantage of the natural elements to hang the lamps.

What stands out the most of the areas illuminated by Faro Barcelona is the outer zone. In the covered garden we find the portable NUK creating a charming and magical light curtain that reinforces the image of tigers hidden among the vegetation.


The surroundings of this area is illuminated by the DAS LED beacon that acts as a road marker. In the surrounding gardens, the BU-OH beacon, awarded with the German Design Award 2018, hides among the trees, showing only its light eyes.


Last but not least, the entrance to the Prosa and Vino Gallery is illuminated with LING LED wall lamps, projecting light from above and below, creating a nice and pleasant light set.

SIDE was the protagonist at Light Middle East

Faro Barcelona participated in the 11thedition of Light Middle East, the lighting and technology design fair, held in Dubai from October 17th to 19th. The company has resumed its participation in this fair since 2008.


The participants, mainly distributors and entrepreneurs specializing in projects, have been especially interested in the wall lamp SIDE. “The result is very satisfactory, as it allows us to know and reinforce our presence in the Gulf and Africa“, says Salvador Martí, Sales Manager of the Faro Group.


Participants also liked the outdoor beacon SHADOW, by Alex & Manel Lluscà, and its beautiful shadows. De Lúcid has captured the STOOD collection with its wooden screens.


We should outlined the presence of the JUST FAN, in copper and DC motor, a product designed to adapt to the characteristics of the market and that has attracted the attention of the customers not only for its body but also for its technical specifications.

Faro Barcelona appreciates the interest of participants and highlights the positive result after the 3 days of the fair.
