Catellani & Smith for Legami Sushi & More in Bergamo
The exclusive Legami Sushi & More restaurant has chosen the “metropolitan garden” of Terrazza Fausti, looking onto the Quadriportico gallery of the Sentierone avenue in the “Città Bassa” (the Lower Town) to open its doors to diners in Bergamo, offering a blend of fusion cuisine and sushi, for a unique taste experience in which the chefs’ creations bring out the very best in aromas and flavours from different cultures.
This journey through flavours is made even more special by the contemporary design of the setting, embellished with lighting by Catellani & Smith, which for this project has supplied a selection of lamps in line with the mood of the restaurant, such as the custom composition of Syphasfera that lights up the stairs with the irregular surfaces of its spheres placed at differing heights. An interesting combination can be admired in the reception area, featuring a PostKrisi T 61, customized on the base with the laser-marked Legami Sushi & More logo. The fibreglass texture of the lamp appears to engage in an open “material dialogue” with the irregular surface of the large painting of a woman, while the natural finish of the shade balances the vibrant colours of the floral hat in the portrait, for a smooth, consistent visual effect.
Moving on towards the bar, two PostKrisi CW 70 lamps coated with gold-coloured leaf decorate the wood panelling around the display of spirits, alcoholic drinks and glasses. The COB LED 1×15 W inside the fibreglass hemisphere creates a circle of light with a jagged outline on the light and dark wood walls. PostKrisi CW 70 continues in succession through the rest of the dining room, embellished with a striking Fil de Fer Nuvola, featured here in a custom version and in gold anodised aluminium wire. Contained within the golden intertwined wire are numerous tiny bulbs that create a warm atmosphere that spreads throughout the setting. Gold returns in one of the rooms, in the shape of Lederam Manta S2. The black screen and the gold-coloured interior shine forth in a cosy, inviting setting, striking a contrast with the shades of blue of the wallpaper, which features a pattern inspired by Japanese art.
Catellani & Smith lighting also continues on the renowned outdoor terrace, with the Sypha outdoor collection, which blends seamlessly into the vegetation, with the stem of Syphasera and its opaline glass shade and the luminous spheres of Syphasfera emerging from amid the plants. The project requirements were completed and customised with bespoke, fully custom wall lighting elements. Finally, three Fil de Fer with a variety of different diameters and in a anodized-gold version bring an extra touch of magic to the outdoor setting, while the tables are illuminated with the soft light of Giulietta BE T, customized on the base with the laser-marked Legami logo. The battery-operated, cable-free lamp can be set to three different light intensities with a simple touch of the hand.
