Electric light version of the lamps/ June 2020
Hanu ’de pe Stirbei is the restaurant of the ibis Styles Bucharest City Center Hotel; this place is the heart of the hotel, an urban refuge for the fast paced travelers. On the initiative of the architect Bogdan Stoica from Arhi Grup, Ceramic Sparrow produced fifteen lamps with windows electrically lit with warm LED bulbs.

The shape and hand-drawn designs on these lamps are integrated in the decor with natural textures and geometric patterns, completing the cozy and authentic atmosphere.
