Milan 2018 – Montréal design design studio Gabriel Scott worked in tandem with Bar Basso owner Maurizio Stocchetto to develop an in-window jewel box lighting installation to celebrate and pay homage to the iconic establishment.
Bar Basso is the unanimous meeting grounds par excellence where Milanese locals and the Salone del Mobile design community mingle after-hours, reveling in the unpretentious institution’s electric atmosphere that remains unchanged since the 1960s.
Altering the interiors for the first time in the iconic institution’s history, Gabriel Scott has not only installed inside, but also featured custom MYRIAD fixtures in window displays inspired by Negroni sbagliato, the quintessential drink for which Bar Basso is celebrated
The legendary Negroni Sbagliato – which traslate as wrong Negroni – is a lighter re-interpretation of vermouth-based Negroni cocktail which replaces gin with Brut wine.
The lighting designs turned just like the like the Campari-based drink. The MYRIAD installation featured blown-glass and new custom satin copper finishes complimenting the famous libation and toasts the Bar Basso legacy. On show also the series of WELLES Glass in alabaster glass and copper hardware.
With backgrounds in architecture, industrial design and jewelry-making, Gabriel Kakon and Scott Richler bring a multidisciplinary set of skill and style to the furniture & lighting world as Gabriel Scott. Since their first collaboration in early 2004, the Canadian brothers-in law have designed and manufactured exclusive pieces for the trade market throughout North America.
