THE NEW RESTAURANT OF ALESSANDRO BORGHESE
Buzzi & Buzzi, the well-known leader at national and international level in the
lighting sector, gives a warm and cosy atmosphere to “AB: il lusso della
semplicità”, the new 1920s restaurant of the famous chef Alessandro Borghese,
designed by the studio of architects Alfredo Canelli and Giovanni Antonelli of Well
Made Factory. In Milan, in Viale Belisario, in a historic building, a new restaurant
dedicated to living and eating well has opened: a place where sharing and culinary
experience combine perfectly thanks to the sparkling personality of the chef.
From the entrance of the restaurant, the incredible expertise of the company gives
the location an elegant light effect: BUZZZ and EGGY will guide you through the
stairs and the wide hallway, revealing the incredible location of the new food
kingdom. Both the lighting solutions, installed on the ceiling of the entire restaurant
irregularly, but at the same time designed to give a uniform light to the space, are the
real protagonists: BUZZZ illuminates the restaurant area from the anthracite floor to
the green and brass and the gold ceiling and dividing panels which prevail. The
same lighting has been used for the lounge bar, which has been decorated with
small trunk-shaped tables, red velvet poufs and nut-brown leather seats.
Instead, EGGY and FUNNEL LAMP enhance the piano bar and the work of the expert barman, and illuminate the meetings and private events room. BUZZZ, perfect for this project because it is a totally recessed hexagonal indoor luminaire made of AirCoral® with rear frosted glass and asymmetric light beam, installable on plasterboard or brick ceilings.
EGGY, is a totally recessed luminaire made of AirCoral® with egg-shaped light emission hole and rear light source, installable on plasterboard or brick ceilings. Two exclusive and refined products which add value to different locations and create unique light atmospheres.
Another important luminaire in the restaurant is FUNNEL: installed in a row of four, FUNNEL is a pendant luminaire with an adjustable silicone cable which gives an extra touch to the important bar characterized by emerald green tiles. An optical white funnel with an elegant clean design made of AirCoral®, an innovative material customizable with coloured finishes, available in the single version with recessed housing or with a steel, white-painted soft touch case, or even with three pendant lamps installed in a single case.
The luminaires of Buzzi & Buzzi light up the restrooms too, characterized by a sophisticated three-dimensional boiserie: X1, a luminaire of the special line Iron, is installable on ceilings with adjustable projector and interchangeable lens and it is placed in the bathrooms in the black finishing version (available in white too). It is a high-performance projector realized with a clean-cut design to obtain a minimal visual impact, provided by an adjustable arm which can be angled up to 360° both horizontally and vertically, and installable on ceilings, walls or rail.
Instead, the adjustable light of TAURUS is installed in the wc: a single, double or triple recessed lighting installable on plasterboard ceilings or walls, with a recessed
body made of Coral® and an extraible projector, which highlights spaces and details with a precise beam of light. Lastly, the single installation of the linear and clean PIPEDINO OPEN, a bi-emission surface luminaire made of AirCoral®, which warms up the atmosphere with its diffused, symmetrical and regular light.
The lighting project by Buzzi & Buzzi successfully enhances the already bright ambience of the restaurant: the precious and refined gold ceiling is made even warmer and brighter thanks to the light effect created company’s products. As always, skillful work is the basis of these experts in the lighting world.
