In the afternoon it was the turn of the interior designers, architects and clients who wanted to get closer and enjoy both the news and the music.

After a speech by Xavi Martin, CEO of Grupo Faro, the Product team again informed of what they had been inspired by and some design anecdotes.

Many of the studios with which Faro Barcelona collaborates, such as Alex & Manel Lluscà, Estudi Ribaudí, Lúcid, Nahtrang and Oiko Design, among others, were present and were able to confirm the fun stories behind our designs.

The 2018 collection was divided into 4 major trends. We went out! It was an ode to the terrace, to enjoy the outdoors and showed our commitment to outdoor lighting. BRONX and FLOW are incorporated into BU-OH and CAT in our offer to illuminate terraces and gardens.

If you call me I´ll come… that’s what our portable lamps say. One of the trends of this 2018 is to be able to use your lamps and light up wherever you go. As a scoop TAKE AWAY by Nahtrang, HOSHI by xJeR Studio and JELYYFISH portable, which Faro will formally present at Light & Building, were present.



Inspired by naturalism, our collections presented a natural cherry wood screens composed of two families: STOOD by Lúcid and LOOP by Estudi Ribaudí that completed the corner titled “Go for the branches.”

And as we care about nature, there was also a special mention to our ecological lamp with more hook. OiKo Design’s HOOK is made with recycled plastic and for each one, a child is fed in Liberia.

For those who wanted to disconnect a bit, our “Shhh” corner … allowed charging the phone in our desktop lamp NIKO while enjoying the sound insulation of MUTE.
