A House is made of Sticks and Stones; A Home is made of Love Alone.
When a national real estate and property development company specializing in home construction was seeking a new home for their team, they selected IA Interiors Miami to guide them in making their new headquarters something much more than your typical office space. With the help of Fabbian USA and Bella Stairs, IA Interiors designed the centerpiece of the new world headquarters to provide a jaw-dropping Wow Experience upon entry.
The design featured a floating glass staircase surrounded by 140 cascading Fabbian Multispot Tooby pendants.
The over 20′ ceiling span required a solution other than a typical canopy. Fabbian’s patented trimless mounting system allowed significant cost savings, reduced the installation’s complexity, and created a smooth, clean ceiling aesthetic.
Only (3) 96W power supplies mounted remotely power the entirety of the grand chandelier (helping with LEED and Energy savings).
Our Italian artisans craft every Fabbian piece by hand, and Multispot Tooby is no exception. The extruded Borosilicate glass tube is wrapped internally with a fine-ridged acrylic diffuser and mirrored bottom and lit with a high-output point source LED from within, providing a glowing and 3-dimensional effect to the glass from behind the lens.
The installation was simplified by having the trimless adapters set to the desired lengths for each of the 140 locations. Then each pendant was mapped to a specific location, and pendant boxes were clearly labeled with locations. Once the trimless elements were mudded into the ceiling, a simple 24V plus and minus connection at each location was needed to finish the installation. Revit files were integral to this process.
Our Fabbian USA team was very proud to participate in this incredible project, and we hope this new home truly is a place for memories to be made and dreams to come true for this client and those they work with.
