Designed & made in Barcelona

Insolit, whose experience in the design, manufacture and installation of luminaires is impeccable, has been commissioned to change part of the lighting of the Eurostars Aliados hotel, in the heart of Avenida dos Aliados, Porto. In this hotel, history and the avant-garde come together in a masterful way, in a building in keeping with the style that floods the city center. Luxury and modernism are factors that define the hotel and have been decisive for the choice of Insolit as the company responsible for remodeling the lighting and lighting design factor of this environment.

Spaces with luminaires of the highest quality:

The hotel’s multiple uses allow for the creation of different environments with different decorative and lighting characteristics. In the remodeling, INSOLIT together with GCA Architects was in charge of bringing the hotel’s lighting to life.

Custom-made luminaires in the Hotel Hall:

In the hotel’s lobby is the imposing and elegant TR Air, made to measure with 5 rings of different diameters TR Down with a sought after and predetermined positioning to directionally illuminate the entire entrance. At the same time, the ceiling pendant luminaire provokes the stupefaction of the client when entering the hotel because of its color, shape, materials and size. The fact that it is floating, the achievement and position of the rings gives it a character of weightlessness that gives a bold and spectacular character to the hall. Also the way it is placed to the millimeter, the large dimensions and the fact that it is a handcrafted product make this luminaire a luxury product that fits perfectly with the situation of the hotel.

Warm, handcrafted lighting for the lobby:

In one of the main lobbies, which connects to the entrance, a custom-designed, mushroom-shaped ceiling light fixture illuminates the entire space in an indirect way, reflecting the light at the top and directing it downward. The character given by the material and the way it illuminates offers a warm and elegant atmosphere that makes the space pleasant for the customer at all times. These handcrafted and locally manufactured luminaires are an exclusive and luxury product that undoubtedly give a more differentiating point to this hotel.

In summary and to conclude, unique and unusual designs have been produced that illuminate and decorate the hotel, giving the space a quality worthy of the place where it is located.
