A subtraction project: the removal of dark and bulky structures existing from eighties for a young client, an HIP HOP pharmacist who wanted to see more light.
So “fiat lux” : we have chosen the ultra bright and famous Taraxacum lamp by A. Castiglioni as visual core of the space, and we designed low containers, for the inner balcony upstairs , that, filtering light through the coloured plexiglass back, protect from pharmacy’s clients gazes from below, while allow light pass through.
Upstairs is the laboratory where pharmacist prepares drugs: we used waferboard panels on the floor and bespoke designed containers on wheels.
External electricity system and “submarine look” lights are close to the big golden drugs containing drawers, left, together with the wood front desk elements, from the ’80. The concrete column in the centre has been restored showing its real essence and it has been dignified by a Bisazza mosaic base.
