FARO BARCELONA OPENS NEW SHOWROOM SPACE

Faro Barcelona’s new showroom has been conceived as a versatile space, where the firm’s latest designs in both lighting and ventilation are displayed. The exhibition is transformed through mobile structures, thereby enabling the space to be adapted to the specific needs of each moment. Closeness, wellbeing and functionality are some of the concepts inherent to Faro Barcelona that the brand wanted to convey at the new showroom.

FARO BARCELONA OPENS NEW SHOWROOM SPACE IN THE HEART OF BARCELONA’S EL BORN NEIBGHBOURHOOD

Conceived as a space for co-creation, reflection and exchange of ideas for consolidated professionals, emerging talents and students of design, many different activities will be carried out from the Faro Barcelona showroom to promote creativity and design, art exhibitions, workshops, presentations and talks, among others. A programme of activities that reflects the brand’s collaborative and open spirit. Faro Barcelona’s extensive catalogue is the fruit of the work of its internal design team Faro Lab, as well as the collaboration with different design studios such as Nahtrang, Estudi Ribaudí, Jordi Busquets, OIKO Design and Bohman & Folenius, among others.

Located in the heart of Barcelona’s El Born neighbourhood, the renovation of this space was carried out by the interior design studio Piedra Papel Tijera. The main purpose of this transformation was to preserve the original structure of the building, which dates back to 1872 and is the work of architect Fontseré Mestres, who was also the author of El Born Market, and to provide it with elements that convey cutting edge and modernity, concepts that are in line with the brand’s philosophy. The size of the space, at over 800 m2, makes it possible to display its extensive portfolio of light and fan designs, thereby enabling an overall view of the brand and its creations. Faro coexists with the emblematic lighting shop Biosca Botey, acquired by the group in 2011. Ever since, a young team of dynamic and passionate professionals, led by Xavier Martín, has worked to position Biosca Botey as a point of reference in the world of lighting.

Faro Barcelona
Founded in 1945 by the López family, Faro Barcelona began life as a table lamp manufacturer. Over the years, the company has consolidated itself as leader in the lighting and ventilation sector. Faro Barcelona is today a Spanish multinational with affiliates in Hong Kong, China and the US. It has a team of over 100 direct employees and is present in 114 countries, with over 7,000 clients. Faro Barcelona is today a creative, unique, conscious and state-of-the-art company. Innovation is one of its main purposes. To do so, it has multidisciplinary, transversal teams engaged in undertaking strategic projects in circular economy, IoT, additive manufacturing (3D printing), BIM and BIG DATA as a previous step along with IOTy to prepare for the AI era. Specific teams dedicated to measuring and minimising the environmental impact of our activity.
In the current landscape, Faro Barcelona is the European lighting company with the most dynamism and ability to innovate products, families and collections. Its ventilation catalogue is increasingly unique and based on design and intellectual property, thereby leading the European market.
When Xavi Martín joined as Managing Director in 2003, Faro Barcelona began its journey in a new business model based on value creation through design, following the pattern of Democratic Design. Good design does not have to be in conflict with accessibility. The Internationalisation of the company has also favoured the focus on design and a collaborative attitude, and has also driven investment and increased manufacturing. With its international presence, Faro Barcelona has also been the deserved recipient of multiple awards and commendations, such as 2 RedDot Awards, 4 German Awards, 2 Green Product Awards and 2 If Design Awards, among others.
The opening of this space in Barcelona represents one more step towards the firm’s attitude of collaboration and being close to the community.
