Let there be light
Tradición y modernidad en el nuevo showroom de BioscaBotey
With more than 600 sq.m. of exhibition space located at the heart of the El Born neighbourhood in Barcelona, Biosca Botey opens a new showroom that also represents a new era for the lighting company. An impressive mise-en-scène created by the interior design studio Piedra Papel Tijera, providing an exhibit for the latest designs in ventilation and lighting from renowned firms such as Artemide, Belux, Bover, Deltalight, Estiluz, Faro Barcelona, Foscarini, Marset, Metalarte, Santa & Cole, Tom Dixon and Vibia among others. An elegantly designed space that invites visitors to see first hand both national and international light fittings as well as being provided with advice from a team of professionals.
The new Biosca Botey headquarters (previously situated on Av. Diagonal) is located on the ground floor of a Modernist building dating from 1900. Characteristic architectural elements like the wrought iron columns, the double height ceilings and the Catalan vault ceiling structure give it an industrial feel that contrasts and adapts to the interior design concept of the Piedra Papel Tijera studio. The entire perimeter is dedicated to exhibition with panels and a canopy organised in a U section configuration that display the entire variety of lamps. Some of the panels can be used to temporary exhibition purposes. In order to accommodate everything else the interior designers have created a modular central island that contains all the paraphernalia such as office equipment, plugs, catalogues etc. Which also includes a display system within and on top of the island. The materials are kept to a minimum, fabric and oak wood. The modular concept is repeated with three different height boxes or shelving units that are covered in black felt used to display the table lamps.
The BioscaBotey team of lighting experts provide advice regarding the execution of lighting projects, both for decorative lighting and for the contract sector such as hotels, restaurants, offices or outdoor lighting. The team carries out an exhaustive supervision and monitoring of each project using a variety of technology and sophisticated equipment.
