Light is the third dimension of the project, an important factor that contributes to make a multisensory space and influences our emotional reaction more than any other element.

Rizoma Architetture believes that to finish and multiply the quality of the designed space, it is necessary to study its lighting.

What is the Lighting Design Approach for Rizoma Architetture?

The identification of the correct relation between light and space starts through the examination and photographic survey of the location, to view it in different moments of the day.

After this fundamental step, the following one is the dialogue with the customer.

In this exchange it is possible to understand which is the emotional state light has to create in that place, how it has to operate to add value to spaces, materials, colours and textures.

Because light, for per Rizoma Architetture, is not only a multiplier of the project quality, but it is the base of the relation among people meeting in that place: light, when it’s well designed, can make a place memorable.

In the hybrid space of 21HoS light has to connect the urban space to the one inside the living room, populated by a flexible and hyperconnected community

Once inside, thanks to iconic illuminating solutions capable of surprising, the lighting brings out the mediterranean colours of the furniture, transforming the hotel into a “home” enjoyable by both citizens and guests. Functionality remains a priority in the lighting design; in a fluid space that changes according to events, lighting design allows to visit exhibitions, enjoy concerts, while offering co-working and study areas.
