Luceplan, globally renowned Milan design lighting company, and Modular Lighting Instruments, innovative Belgian manufacturer of architectural lighting systems, are launching a new co-branded showroom in New York City’s Soho neighborhood.
Designed by architect Amedeo G. Cavalchini (www.studiocavalchini.com), the space exemplifies the synergy between decorative and architectural high-end lighting fixtures and offers architects and designers a one-stop shop for projects. Cavalchini’s design was initially inspired by the actual products that would be showcased there – looking at the technical, commercial, economical and aesthetical components. Set on two floors, Cavalchini divided the showroom’s main level into 22 light boxes each infused with a special “still life”, using new materials such as the de Castelli etched aluminum walls and pine wood slats. The lower level mixes old and new integrating the original redbrick columns with modern lighting elements, meeting space and informal seating areas featuring furniture from Buzzispace.
