Flamingo by Sara Moroni for Platek illuminates the outdoor area of the Pasticceria Olivieri in Arzignano (VI)
From the ashes of the former Pelizzari pump factory, an area in disuse marked by the devastation of time and the continuous transformations that betray the purely industrial origin of the building, the [A+M]² Architects office has designed a new reality focused on recovering the existing building and preserving distinctive features from the previous structure.
The Pasticceria Olivieri project, inaugurated at the end of 2017, was created from this "recovery philosophy" of real estate heritage and from the desire to carry out some modern redefinition by way of simplicity and formal minimalism.
For the outdoor lighting, [A+M]² Architects has chosen to work with Platek as its technical lighting partner using the Flamingo lighting collection designed by Sara Moroni.
The technical lighting collection, created by designer Sara Moroni, accompanies visitors to the Pasticceria (bakery) in a refined yet minimalist atmosphere, offering visual comfort, a family atmosphere and an excellent combination of performance and design. The small size, slender shapes and great resistance of Flamingo allow for excellent camouflage and integration with the external elements, giving stylistic continuity with the interior, and with the philosophy of the architectural project. This transforms the "habitable greenhouse" inside the Olivieri production environment into a sober, classy outdoor living room, with all the practicality, functionality and elegance of latest-generation LED lighting.
Like a stage, the black concrete platform lights up and comes to life, giving rise to two different rooms within the same area. These two rooms are characterised by an interesting indoor/outdoor dialogue going on between the Pasticceria’s interior lighting and Flamingo’s discreet brightness.
