The LEX law firm receives clients in an elegant, contemporary setting where the walls and furnishings are enhanced by the choice of a colour palette of pale grey, black and white. The colours are echoed in the L&L lighting solutions chosen by Carella+Salvato, the designers responsible for the lighting concept. The space is divided into various rooms: the reception area, the office of the practice owner, the meeting room, and rooms for the other team members, arranged along a corridor.
The reception area, where the grey floor creates a visual continuum with the wall, is lit by Stinger 2.0 projectors with built-in power supply, fixed to the ceiling on a track. A striking visual effect has been obtained by directing the beam of one projector onto the olive tree in the corner of the room – it creates an elegant chiaroscuro image of the foliage on the wall’s grey stone cladding. The same Stinger projectors, this time in version 1.0, have been installed along the corridor. In this case, the fixtures were attached to two tracks on the ceiling, that replicate the bend in the corridor further emphasising the play of lines in this space.
The office of the law firm's owner features a wall entirely covered in boiserie and painted black to blend with the room’s furnishings of desk, chairs and filing cabinet. There are six shelves on the panelled wall, divided into two groups of three and separated visually by three light columns, created using small Bitpop C 1.0 ceiling-mounted fixtures with narrow 17° optics and finished in black to match the colour of the wooden panelling.
The lighting design is completed with recessed Brenta linear profiles for the meeting room wall that holds the firm’s law books. The bookcase is made up of sixteen compartments arranged in four columns, with the Brenta fixtures installed flush with the surface along the vertical wall dividers in four increasing lengths, creating lines of light that continue from the wall to the ceiling, contributing to the room’s ambient lighting.
