The modernism of Barcelona

Modernism marked a time of changes in the conception of Catalan design and today it still remains in homes, objects and artistic creations.

An example of this is the last project of the architect Jofre Roca: the remodelling of an old apartment in the central street of Carme de Barcelona, right next to the Ramblas, which was built in 1861 under this current.

Bright, with open spaces and three courtyards, it is a modern house that has exposed many original elements, such as an incredible hydraulic floor, the walls made with old billows, the ceilings of beams and drawings in ceramics, and wooden elements.

To give full prominence to this recovery, the rest of the design is simple and sophisticated, and plays with elements of light-coloured materials and walls.

Estibaliz Martin’s favourites

The Basque interior designer Estibaliz Martin has been working on renovation, interior design and design projects for years. Furthermore, she has been at the helm of her own studio for over five years, creating customised comprehensive projects with meticulous attention to detail to satisfy her clients.

This is probably why she has used Faro Barcelona light fittings for some time. Knowing the people who will occupy the space well helps her to prioritise, to create modern, functional spaces and to choose the most appropriate lighting for each of those challenges.

For one of her latest projects, she chose the BERNI floor lamp to light the living room. It is a large space with a corner next to the sofa that needs a support light and that, thanks to its white finish, goes well with the modern, minimalist decor. Another favourite of Estibaliz is the LINK series, whose table lamp she has put in another space on both sides of the bed and supported on the headboard. In this case, it is important to be able to direct the light beam and that they act as reading lights. And if there is one complete collection that the interior designer has used in more than one corner of the house it is LINDA. She has used its pendant lamp to bathe the central zone of a dining room table, since it maintains a timeless, classic style in order to combine with any furniture finish, and the table lamp to light the entrance and break up the classic style of a rustic table.

Relaxing in Greece

In an amazing countryside setting near the sea is the Casita Casita Lindos Hotel in Greece.

Renovated by the architect Vana Pernari, it has small, but cosy rooms decorated in the purest Mediterranean style. From them all, a large pool can be enjoyed that merges with the landscape. It is an oasis of peace and quiet.

To make the visitor’s stay even more pleasant, the JUST FAN fan with wooden blades has been installed in the double rooms, which not only helps you sleep and cool down, but, thanks to its design, provides wellbeing and elegance. In the jewel in the crown, the two storey suite with dining room, Pernari has gone for the WINCH fan. With a more industrial style and incorporated light, it has been installed in a sloping roof. A brown fan perfect for a space as large as this one.

Each corner is designed for guests to put their problems to one side and relax the mind. The bathrooms facilities and the decorative elements are dark stones, and to accompany the mirrors, you will find MOY wall lights. Small, sophisticated—the interior designer chose the gold finish—and perfect for humid environments. Fotography: Stelios Kalisperis

Eating in style

Grupo Saona has a variety of restaurants spread out over the Valencian capital and coast. They offer home-style, healthy dishes made with top quality ingredients and their spaces perfectly reflect their philosophy: to convey wellbeing and bring us closer to a healthy life and an environment as warm as the beach in Formentera bearing its name.

So, the interior designers Tarruella Trenchs set about cooling down the dining areas with the matte nickel LANTAU fan with dark walnut wooden blades, a finish that blends in with all the spaces and goes unnoticed among wood, esparto grass, fabric and a lot of natural light.

In Madrid, Gandia or Jávea you can find top quality food, spaces with modern, elegant and, at the same time, very Mediterranean designs, and one of our star fans.

The young life

Madrid’s central Argüelles neighbourhood is home to one of Suave Interior Design’s latest projects.

It is a renovation of a narrow, dark flat in a light-filled, youthful style dwelling. To achieve this, the interior designers opened the layout to create large, shared spaces, managing to transport the natural light throughout the inside. The use of neutral materials like wood, light fabrics or wall tones have successfully conveyed the idea of coolness and openness. For the bedside lighting, they used the BOC and ORLEANS wall lights in black and white, respectively, which marry perfectly with the minimalist, soft style of the rooms and leave space for bedside tables.

Faro’s LAO floor lamp in black finish was also used. Designed by Nahtrang, it provides style, elegance and a perfect reading light.

PLAT and a flat ready to live in

Barcelona’s calle Londres is where you will find the latest project of Ingenii interior design —a renovated flat ready for occupation. The dwelling has a living-dining room, one bedroom and one bathroom in rather open spaces. The original wooden beams were kept as part of its design which, against the white of all the walls, offer a relaxed, minimalist and modern environment.

A “tranquility” that the interior designers have broken with the furniture and lighting. The PLAT ceiling light has been placed in the centre of the table in the living-dining room, which, thanks to the bright effect produced by its light source, provides personality and contrast throughout the room.

Two Faro Barcelona TEN wall lights in matte nickel finish have also been used for the general lighting in the corridors and in the bathroom. In this case, it is a support light that follows the “clear” and overall style of the whole home.

The nest, the home

The NIDO pendant light from Faro Barcelona is the star of the dining room of the latest project of Collgorgot in Figueras.

This Catalan architecture studio has renovated a 110 m2 floor, arranging it to hold an open living room with dining room and kitchen, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. NIDO is situated just above the table that joins the first three spaces and steals the show thanks to the contrast with the white walls and the rest of the wood furniture and warm tones. A lamp for general lighting that, as happens with birds, gathers the entire family in a warm home.

Madrid coolness and elegance

Summer in the capital can be very hard if you do not have a good fan at home. The interior designer Monica Garrido knows this, and this is why she had the Faro Barcelona LANTAU model for her latest project in Madrid.

With the purpose of achieving a house of spacious rooms with an elegant aesthetic, this comprehensive interior design and decoration project is characterised by the joining of spaces, the hidden doors of the rooms and a single chromatic criterion for materials and colours, like grey, white, green or light wood.

The LANTAU ceiling fan in oak wood finish not only freshens up the main bedroom, but also, as Garrido says, ‘clearly plays a leading role in the decoration.’

A cool home in the heart of Barcelona

With the premise of recovering pre-existing elements, such as ceilings or the indoor wood, a space with a modern and natural style has been designed. The rooms are open and the communal spaces like the dining room or kitchen look directly out onto the courtyard, which has been converted into a semi-outdoor space. Thanks to this, it is a flat with a lot of light that, along with white walls, a mix of materials and details in wood or black, give it a young and cool appearance.

A coolness that the JUST FAN fan has helped to give its largest room, the dining room. With a black motor and dark wood blades, its industrial, modern style marries perfectly with the essence of this home.

Outdoor lighting in La Guingueta de l’Escribà

La Guingueta de l’Escribà is a beach bar located in Bogatell beach, Barclona. GE Interioriormo has overseen this project with a tropical decoration.

The bar offers a range of bright colors, cheerful and cool, perfect to enjoy its kitchen next to the sea.

The furniture and the illumination are rustic and made of materials like wood and wicker, fact that reinforces the warmth of the place and allows the visitors to feel comfortable.

For the general lighting lamps with the same materials have been used, whereas for the perimeter lighting of the beach bar, you will find the portable lamps CAT.

CAT is a Nahtrang design for the lighting firm Faro Barcelona. It is inspired on the 50’s cartoon geometric shapes and its body also reminds of the lamps of ancient boats.

This lighting allows to reinforce the general one and gives a modern touch to the place. A good job by GE Interios Design that have known how to capture the essence of La Guinguita de l’Escribà.
