Somium

Luceplan as Lighting

Opened in June 2019, the new interior design of the Somium headquarters in Alicante, created down to the smallest details by Monica Armani, reflects the designer’s main areas of research: “I have envisioned the SOMIUM space as an elegant multifunctional location marked by a high level of acoustic comfort. I have worked with panels, drapes and the sound-absorbing suspension lamps Silenzio and Diade, which I designed for Luceplan, elements ‘in the air’ that bring vivid character to the interior design.”
