The first time at Materials&Light

In mid-April, we participated at our first Parisian fair Materials&Light with a selection from our latest collection.

Organised by renowned magazine DA Architecture in central Paris, the fair brought together design professionals, architects and distributors. It was a good stage upon which to reaffirm the strong presence of Faro Barcelona on the French market and to meet with its audiences at a luxurious location.

Around 2,000 visitors passed through Carreau du Temple, a modernist style pavilion, in addition to our stand, where they could get to know models such as HOOK, JELLYFISH or LINK. Of them all, the hanging version of LE VITA, the fan JUST FAN and the wall light NIKO triumphed:

LE VITA is a collection designed by Nahtrang with a delicate and simple style. LE VITA evokes elegant, simple and harmonious life. A classic space that lets the magic in.

JUST FAN is one of our star fans. Silent and efficient, it has a DC motor and reverse function. It is designed to cool down the temperature, but, above all, to provide wellbeing and style.

NIKO is another design by Nahtrang for people who need to recharge their batteries before going to sleep or to bed. It has a wireless charger incorporated and its light can be regulated. Ideal for the bedroom.

New showroom with HUS Milano

During the Euroluce Fair, the space dedicated to lighting at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, we inaugurated a collaboration with HUS Milano.

It is a very careful selection of our latest collection at the showroom of this design atelier on Via della Moscova. A union that enables us to be at the epicentre of design with a permanent showroom in cooperation with our partner. Many of our designs could be found there, such as HAN, NIKO, TAKE AWAY, LE VITA and WHIZZ, among others, in a space with much charm and design history. Villa della Moscova is located in the Brera Design District, the zone that hosted other initiatives dedicated to design, making the most of the time when the Salone was not open and becoming a relaxed meeting point for professionals in the sector.

The exhibition “Inspired in Barcelona: Mediterranean Design” organised by Centre del Disseny and Cluster Habitat also took place there. With the purpose of bringing a representation of Mediterranean design to the city of Milan, it selected the lights LOOP and LOTUS, and models of another 40 consolidated Spanish brands.

Two very important and interesting collaborations that completed the experience at Euroluce, a week dedicated to design, new projects and inspiration.

Euroluce, an experience for all the senses

From 9th to 14th April, we took part for the fifth time in Euroluce, the space dedicated to lighting at Salone del Mobile in Milano.

It is one of the most important fairs in the world of furniture and lighting and had over 1,150 international companies dedicated to design, the great highlight of the show.

We travelled to Milan with scenery by Michaela Mezzavila, who was in charge of designing the stand under the concept of wellbeing, energy, commitment and consciousness. Of open spaces and warm materials, the spirit of Faro Barcelona could be felt in each corner of the stand. An ideal environment that we completed with the collaboration of ENEA and its stools. Visitors, architects, designers and interior designers, among others, were able to enjoy our latest proposals in a relaxed setting. Models such as LE VITA, PURE, MOOD, LE PETIT, HOOK, BRONX, MASK and LOTUS in lighting and JUST FAN and POLEA in ventilation, triumphed among a large offering.

Under the slogan “Living on the bright side“, we wanted to convey, in a fresh and original way, our vision of the design of objects. Convinced that these are much more than that, that they convey emotions and identify us, we created different profiles for each lifestyle. You can discover them here. Innovation space

Creativity and technology were also protagonists in our proposals. Models and ideas in full development stage were presented to get to know our clients’ point of view.

But, one of our principle highlights was without a doubt the presentation of the project MAKE IT. A portable light totally customisable thanks to 3D printing that was started at the fair itself, where we were printing different casings throughout the meeting. MAKE IT enables the base to be purchased, and the diffusor to be designed and printed on a 3D printer prepared for this. Or, if there is no software, choose from one of the designs that Faro Barcelona has put together.

And, to complete our proposal’s sensory experience, we also have virtual reality glasses where you can see the designs in an actual residential space and get to know all their details. We did it with the “BIM as request” technology, a collaborative method that is practical to integrate and that enables manufacturers, architects, engineers, etc. to work together for the execution of projects. These were some very intense and happy days! And, we wanted to make the most of the zeal that is experienced in the city during Fuorisalone with two activities in Brera Design District: the exhibition of Centre del Disseny y Cluster Habitat, and the HUS Milano showroom.

Ultimately, Euroluce 2019 was a week full of inspiration, emotion and design. Another great chance to get closer to all those who feel and enjoy, like we do, the brighter side of life.

A way of life for each type of luminaire

We design objects thinking about the happiness and comfort of the people who will be in contact with them. Our design speaks of well-being, energy, commitment, respect and conscience.

And you, with what design do you identify yourself?

Life in the city is accelerated, dynamic and exciting. It is full of free souls that move with lightness and character. They do not like to have only one space. They are spontaneous and revolutionary, they leave a mark. Creating

“A day without smiling is a lost day” and that is why you have to live with joy, vitality and freshness. Fill the days with colours, the people you love and good times. A toast for today! You like to shine

We open a new meeting space in Barcelona

In spring we will open a new space in El Born neighbourhood, right in the centre of Barcelona, which will serve not only to show our novelties, but also as a meeting point with all the publics of our brand.

It will be much more than a showroom, a place to live the essence of our brand and our values and create great stories together. 1.000m2 dedicated to the exchange of ideas and impressions on design, welfare, new trends and much more. The design of the space, the work of the Piedra Papel Tijera studio, wants to turn the visit into an experience and surprise the visitor from all angles. It will also be the creation space of the product development and innovation team of Faro Barcelona.

The new space of the brand will be at Calle Princesa, 52, a multicultural and dynamic area used to welcome new proposals.

We are waiting for you this spring at Faro Experience Hub.

From industrial space to a warm home

The reform company Sincro has managed to turn a functional workspace into an incredible apartment for a family of four people. And to achieve this he has had different fans of Faro Barcelona.

The objective of the study was to create an open and minimalist space but at the same time a warm and comfortable home. Mixing types of wood and all types of materials, this Cornellà apartment also has a domotic control system and solar control elements. The ventilation of the dining room has been resolved with the white IBIZA fan. Its discreet design makes it ideal for a stay as chosen and its three blades perfect for ventilation of large spaces such as the living room. For the rooms, on the other hand, the OBOE model, also white, was available. It is a little smaller than the previous one and continues with the line of minimalist and functional design. Both have an inverse function, so they can also be used in winter by improving the heating system. Two good choices to provide comfort to a reform full of details that fits perfectly with family life.

We arrived in America

And we did it big time. Last January we visited Lightovation for the first time in Dallas, one of the most important fairs of the sector in the southern United States.

Although we had already travelled on two previous occasions, the appointment in Dallas was the consolidation of the bet for the American market with a solid offer in ventilation and design luminaires. Prescribers and representatives from different countries visited the Faro Barcelona stand and were surprised by its wide gamma with models such as ETERFAN, JUST FAN or WINCHE, and with design luminaires such as the recently awarded INVITING.

It was a great opportunity for our representatives, who say it has been a new learning about the operation of the market and a good opportunity to establish a permanent showroom. A very positive assessment that continues in the line of expansion of the company, the desire to grow and, above all, to innovate. The stand of the fair was also a novelty. Our design team projected an open space following the Mediterranean spirit of the company. A classic modernist flat in Barcelona’s Eixample with coffered ceilings, large windows and hydraulic floors. Giving prominence especially to ventilation, we have the collaboration of Vergés and his MIM collection designed by the prestigious interior designer Sandra Tarruella. The innovation and work of this project also translated into the online realm with the premiere of the website specially created for the American market: farobarcelona.com.

A transversal experience for Faro Barcelona that has come to America with a desire to stay.
