The Antic Café Espanyol is on Barcelona’s historic Avinguda del Paral.lel. The restaurant/street café has recently been renovated with Factorylux lighting, including industrial lamp shades and fittings.
The historic Antic Café opened in 1892 and saw the heyday of the Avinguda Paral.lel in the early/mid-20th century when it was the equivalent of Montmartre in Paris with adult shows, vaudeville and theatre.
The café has been completely renovated with the lighting design by Barcelona based Space Lighting which provides an integrated design and supply service for commercial and residential projects. The renovation of the café contributes to the redevelopment of El Paral.lel – which reputedly once had the longest stretch of street cafes in Europe – as a destination for leisure.
Some of the tables and the bars are lit by Factorylux industrial lamp shades, in both gloss black and white enamel. The industrial shades measure 360mm in diameter and are made entirely in the UK for exceptional quality. In addition to white and gloss black, the shades are available in four other genuine vitreous enamel finishes and six metallics including pure copper, verdigris copper and galvanised. The shades were installed with Factorylux fittings, including ceiling roses and lighting chain.
All the ceiling light fittings specified for the Antic Café were designed using the Factorylux Made For You pendant light configurator. The configurator – available to everyone and not just professional lighting designers – makes it possible to create the perfect pendant light using the huge range of Factorylux modular components (ceiling roses, cable, chain, lamp holders etc).
When you’re happy with the design, it’s built, tested and certified to BS EN 60598 at our UK production HQ in West Yorkshire. The complete pendants are dispatched for next working day delivery in the UK and delivery within three working days in the EU. Because all the lighting is built and tested to harmonised UK/EU standards, it can be installed safely and simply throughout the EU. Start your pendant light design here.
