A cool home in the heart of Barcelona

Serrat-Tort Arquitectes and Marta Castellano are behind this amazing renovation and interior design project in Barcelona’s central neighborhood of Ciutat Vella, photographed by Davide Pellegrini

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.

Lighting details in this coastal flat

Quatre Coses has been responsible for the decoration of this flat located in Blanes. To welcome, the MINE one-light pendant in white lights the entrance and fits perfectly with the minimalist style of this area.


The wood and wicker, as well as the metal organiser, give it functionality and at the same time follow the current trends in decoration.


In the living room, an American kitchen presides over the long room. On the kitchen island, two LIZ-1 crystal pendants provide the right light for cooking, as well as illuminate this area in a general way.

The Mediterranean atmosphere of the room provides a calm and relaxation sensation; and the crystal allows the light to diffuse without flashes while not losing any lumens.

A very original way of lighting the dining table is thanks to the industrial look wall lamp that directly illuminates the panel and whose reflection of light affects the table. Thus, it can be used without disturbing the guest.


Finally, in the white and blue bedroom, the CELIA wall lamps with the articulated arm give a retro and industrial touch to this room.


The bedroom is modern and functional. The set is an interior design project designed for today’s life and where light fulfils an essential and consistent function in all environments.

Hill House Villa is a holiday rental house built in 2017. It is located in a dream spot in Chrisi Akti in Chania, Greece and has 4 floors where comfort and luxury are always present.


It was decided to build a garden at the top of the building in order to have the feeling of well-being offered by looking at the ocean while enjoying the sunset.

For this corner, the VERSUS-Elamp of Faro Barcelona and its structures have been used so that they stand out above the vegetation and the sun beds.


VERSUS-E has been used both on its structures and as a floor lamp to create a warm atmosphere for guests. According to Angelos and Thomais Klothaki, owners of this holiday house, “The lighting fits perfectly with the modern design and the urban environment of Hill House Villa”.

New Faro Catalogs 2015

Faro Barcelona presents its new catalogs, one more year. It is a new edition that reflects the constant commitment to growth, innovation and design to meet the lighting and ventilation needs of all kinds of spaces, both domestic and by contract.

Faro New catalogs 2015

One of the aspects that stand out the most in this edition of the Home Catalog is the increase in design news. The brand is still committed to a simple but ingenious design that connects with the user in a comfortable, pleasant and friendly manner. Among the most important news of 2015: the VOLTA family or the AUREA and OVO fixtures, created by Estudi Ribaudí; ROOM and SWING are two very different fixtures designed by Manel Lluscà; or, the hanging PAPILLON by Jordi Busquets. In addition, different proposals that complement previous families are also presented. The new track projectors of the RING series; a kit to turn the COCOTTE ceiling light fixture into a hanging lamp; and, the expansion of the RETRO family, among others. In the Outdoor Lighting Catalog, more than 60 new references between different types of products and complete series are presented. All of them produced with materials and processes that give them high resistance to adverse environmental conditions, as well as high efficiency by incorporating LED technology. TAU, a design by Manel Lluscà, is one of the most outstanding series in outdoor lighting for this year. Another of the novelties is the VIEW fixture, a design with futuristic shapes by Estudi Ribaudí. And we also expanded the DATNA family with a more technical beacon light and street lamp, designs by Manel Lluscà. Our fans are a European benchmark. The Ventilation Catalog incorporates 13 new models for 2015, with which it continues to focus on performance and high efficiency. ANDROS stands out among the new proposals for being one of the fans with great format that works with a DC motor. Another of the new models is JUST FAN, also with a DC motor and designed by the internal team of Faro Barcelona. Finally, in the Light Bulbs Catalog, we continue to be strongly committed to LED technology. 17 new models are put on the market, highlighting new LED models in decorative light bulbs and frosted glass. The new Faro Barcelona Catalogs have been completely redesigned to offer a better visibility of the products and more technical information on these. Furthermore, in its web version, it will be possible to visualize some of the products from any angle thanks to the incorporation of 360º videos.
