Spanish property developer Somium, part of the Marjal real estate group and active in the luxury segment, recently commissioned Monica Armani to completely renovate its Alicante headquarters. As part of a project that saw a complete redefinition of the spaces, with the aim of ensuring better usability and enjoyability, light and acoustic comfort played a key role. Luceplan was selected as the exclusive partner for all the lighting, with the supply of both the recessed solutions and the sound-absorbing Diade and Silenzio suspensions, which bear the signature of Monica Armani.
Inaugurated in June 2019, the new interior design of the Somium headquarters reflects a key thought of the designer: “I thought of the SOMIUM space as an elegant and multifunctional place characterised by high acoustic comfort. I worked with backstage, curtains and the Silenzio and Diade sound-absorbing lamps I designed for Luceplan, elements “in the air” that give a strong character to the interior design“.
Luceplan has therefore been chosen as a lighting engineering partner, above all for its proven experience in the field of “all-in-one” solutions able to provide correct lighting and to study an intervention able to combine formal aspects with the essential need for acoustic comfort in all work environments, especially with a view to sharing on which the entire interior design is focused.
The Silenzio lamp is made with a series of acoustic materials combined with a high-end external fabric, synthesized in an object with a sophisticated design and high soundproofing properties. The sturdy metal structure supports the elegant cylinder covered in fabric with a grisaille effect texture like an elegant tailored jacket, of which Monica Armani has selected 22 colours in shades of grey, orange, green, blue, beige and lilac. The lamp combines a smooth external surface with a three-dimensional interior characterised by slight curves to obtain a double effect: softly mixing light and breaking sound waves.
Diade, at the same time, positioned in correspondence of the workstations, allows to recreate a protected environment, collected for each employee. Diade suspensions combine optimal lighting with high levels of acoustic comfort. The two panels in sound-absorbing material can be positioned vertically or horizontally to create a backdrop or a large ceiling. The two solutions proposed solve in a unicum of light, sound absorption and the “ceiling” of the space, eliminating any false ceilings. The covering fabric is available in three colours and creates a particularly refined couture effect. For more information visit www.luceplan.com.
