TREE HUGGING


One of the most impressive buildings in downtown Bucharest, Palazzo Argentina has recently enjoyed an innovative lighting refurbishment; Griven fixtures highlight the landmark’s peculiar structure.


Named the ‘tree of life’, this winding tube- shaped stainless steel installation embraces, with its leaning trunk and curving branches, the whole faade of this estorey uilding in an enveloping hug. urrently hoe to the showroo of the Italian Interior Design and Architecture coany, assio arorati was recruited to gie a colourful new lease of life to alao Argentina, with the help of Griven lighting xtures. The brief was to highlight the curved tree trun and ranches with a exile, highower LED solution able to provide a contrasting light and colour distribution on the façade while


enhancing its eculiar layout at night. riens lighting designers also had to take into account the usage of different layers of lighting as tree trunk, branches and balconies did not lie on the same perspective level. he exile oose stris turned out to e the erfect solution due to their ersatility and owerful outut. ixed inside an 5  anti  rotection sleee, oer 0 etres of  oose stris with 0 s were secied and installed ehind the roles of the etal tree. To complete the façade lighting three units of arade  0 recessed with ediu otics were eedded in the oors of the three balconies of the building. Designed
