Top lighting brand Marset is continuing to find favour with Europe's delicatessens and cafes.
On the heels of the Gail's Bread chain in London, the Pfifferling Deli in Basel is the latest to fall for the charms of the ceramic Pleat Box light designed by Xavier Mañosa of Barcelona's Apparatu studio and Berlin's Mashallah design practice. Five Pleat Box lights in white underglazed ceramic with a reflective gold interior hang over the deli counter, giving a soft, warm light.
Designers working on cafes say they like the Pleat Box because the lights have indentations or folds which remind you of working with your hands to shape pastry or dough - that said, the idea behind the product was to make you think about the folds that form naturally in fabric as it drapes.
And for the icing on the cake, so to speak, the Pfifferling also chose Marset's glamorous and exuberant Discocó pendant light by Christophe Mathieu for its group seating area.
As we all know, there's no point in hiding your light under a bushel.
