LBA [IT]

Commissioned by a leading Italian company in wood processing and bespoke furniture (LBA srl), this project stems from a perfect synergy between design and craftsmanship.

The brief required an operating and representative space capable of restoring the uniqueness of the company brand: a modern design linked to a concept of spatial versatility and high craftsmanship in woodwork whilst simultaneously respecting historic features. The space, covering a total area of seventy square metres, was rigid and simply contained and complex to modify due to restrictive anti-seismic regulations.

The guiding idea was to create a single, fluid and open environment, housing a desk, meeting table, shelving and archive space and a consultation space, without interruption. The original space was totally renovated and maintained in its purity in white with the wall fixtures (shelving and bookcases) lacquered white.

Oak provided a softening element defining the project: a desk that rises to become both a division filter for natural light and then a shelter to enclose the space around the meeting table, also derived from an element shaped in oak. All in a sinuous sign that lent to the space an unequivocal identity that could be appreciated by the large windows on the street. The intervention was completed with a lighting system, perfectly integrated with the general design, cementitious resin floor and blue furniture.
