FEDE is setting the trend for luxury design switches
FEDE was one of the chosen companies to showcase its products at the trend setting section of the Light + Building Trade Show 2018-2019. This section of the show is to display the most cutting edge and sophisticated designs which are setting the pace for the industry and which are currently essential for the latest Hotel Interiors.
Elegant switches are an important part of any design, but as well as being part of the design they are used and valued by customers, especially when they add something special to the overall atmosphere of a Boutique Hotel.
Little touches that make a big difference
You might think that switches and sockets go unnoticed, but this is not the case. Switching on a light is an inevitable process and the switch itself can become part of a larger piece of design art. This is true when the switch merges perfectly with the lighting. This innovative concept has been created by FEDE especially for hotels. It is the concept of Switch & Light.
At FEDE there is no room for plastic switches as it works exclusively with hand-crafted brass fashioned by expert craftsmen. Brass is widely used for furniture, trimmings and lighting, and now also for switches which means they can be included as part of the actual design. This luxurious and sophisticated trend has much to do with decorative design and uses historical artistic references adding a touch of the contemporary and new technology to create ‘retro-creations’ such as FEDE’s Marco & SoHo collections.
The luxurious scenes created within the hotel have an air of the Italian Palazzi.
The accent is now clearly on this new trend whereby the light switch becomes a light jewel for hotels whose design has been meticulously planned down to the last detail. The switch design is comparable to a small piece of jewellery and then placed in the context of a beautifully designed hotel. The artistic idea is an inspiration which is then reflected in the refined rooms and suites of the hotel.
FEDE’s designs and collections have a bespoke quality and create a sophisticated effect in the decoration. The opulence of the switch makes it an artistic element whilst at the same time being ultra-contemporary.
New catalogue 2018 with hotel solutions
At the recent InteriHotel Trade Show held in Madrid on the 20th to 21st of June, FEDE launched its new catalogues with a complete range of switches and sockets for hotel projects.
New items include an LED lit dolly switch, a quick-charge USB connector, a Bluetooth® receiver, a new card-slot switch, and many other new products offering hotel solutions. Marco is the new contemporary metal collection created by FEDE. It encompasses a purest concept and uses the latest design finishes which have a slightly velvety touch.
The latest trend is modern whilst maintaining a classical elegance. This range has a touch of French classical design but at the same time effortlessly blends with the colours; white, ivory, black, mocha, olive green or burgundy.
Known as the Switch & Light Tailor, FEDE is able to produce specialized finishes on demand offering an extraordinary decorative pallet of options which lend themselves to the decoration of every Hotel.
The dolly switches and dimmers, both metal, lend a slightly industrial feel to a design and have been created for spaces that are looking for that original effect and are trying to avoid the more traditional type of switch.
Switching on a light is an Art, and act of great importance. Without doubt the start of the communication between the guest and the room. FEDE turns this into a memorable act.
SoHo, the eclectic new collection
FEDE´s objective is to give the architect and interior designer a unique creation that fits perfectly with the hotel decoration.
The new SoHo collection is made from the highest quality brass. Overlaying this FEDE adds a contemporary brushed matt finish in gold, copper, graphite or nickel.
Our master craftsmen then apply their artistic eye and techniques developed over many years to create these original brushed finishes. They can also offer these finishes to our lighting products on request.
The timeless style of the new SoHo collection matches perfectly a wide range of wall colours which makes it the must have item for Hotel projects. All the switches from the Marco collection also fit our minimalist SoHo frames.
Brass is the ultimate sophistication giving that touch of distinction.
