Dada Architecture + Design Headquarters: Zurich
For the Dada Architecture + Design Headquarters interior, architect Davide D'Agostino combined multiple styles to create a unique look. The Sospesa Pendant Light creates an official business atmosphere in the conference room, the custom-made Tile Ceiling Light makes a statement in the lounge area, while the Crio Pendant Light adds warmth and comfort to the creative department environment.
Fabbian design team was asked to redesign the lobby area around the stairs leading to the prestigious Hotel Willemswerf in Rotterdam. As a result, the area is decorated by a huge custom-made Tooby Multispot Pendant Light from Fabbian's Tooby Multispot Collection. There are 160 lighting points in this specific multipoint pendant, and each one is fitted with a dimmable LED. Individual pendants consist of durable borosilicate glass with a cylindrical element in grooved plastic inside to ensure an even diffusion of light along the entire length of the tube.

Strategically positioned between the prestigious Harvard and MIT universities, Cafe ArtScience in Boston, MA is famous for offering experimental cuisine to its guests.

The dining area is decorated with twenty Cloudy Pendant Lights, allowing every guest to enjoy the futuristic environment with a scenic atmosphere. The Cafe ArtScience interior suggests that the culinary art, science and design can go hand in hand and be a successful partnership for years to come.
Blue Milano Office Group: Milan
While creating a new look for the Milan-based Blue Milano Office Group, the architect Marco Viola incorporated two of the Fabbian's most famous designs: Sospesa Pendant Light, featuring the tempered glass diffuser suspended from six cables, and the Crio Pendant Light, composed of a carefully folded aluminum sheet. Both luminaries would not come to life without a specific research of formal equilibrium and the geometric rigor with an aim to create a modern classicism. Together, the fixtures balance the official and the emotional aspects of today's business world.
