CHEMISTRY IN BARI

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.
