Polished stainless steel, painted aluminum, Barrisol, mirrors and Plexiglas

The project is organized in three elements conceived to establish a dialogue with the spaces of the building, underscoring their character and potential, using light and selection of materials as operative tools. The ceilingmounted system is composed of sheets of painted aluminium that form an overturned cone. The Barrisol film, which “lights up” in a uniform way, is stretched at its base. At the top, concealed by the structure, fluorescents create an area of light and detachment from the architectural structure, making the lamp more self-contained and independent. “XXX” has been designed for the ceilings of the two main corridors. It is a long box of mirrors that virtually expands the space below. The reflecting surface it etched by strips of Plexiglas that form a modular geometric grid, lit from behind by Leds. Finally, “Stretch” lights the remaining corridors, taking the form of a large quadrangular metal ceiling lamp with blue Barrisol sheet, capable of spreading fluorescent light in an optimal way. Marzorati Ronchetti has produced and installed the entire system, combining metalworking with the engineering of the lighting equipment.
