Color backlighting seemed the seasonal theme for this Fantini Showroom. Vignetted Blue backlighting was the backdrop for the silhouetted Fantini® logograph and logotype, with color fixtures close at hand so you know the Showroom focus … bath fixtures. I might have front lit the fixtures more, but don;t think you were not encouraged to inspect regardless. CLICK the thumbnail for a closeup of the store signature alone. Often, but not always, the horse rampant is red.
While their logo may be oversize across the entrance and interior walls, here Fantini® only needs to whisper their name in associate with a faucet design. Still even when at a distance (CLICK the thumbnail) the brand message is delivered even if only subconsciously. Nice use of a frosted acrylic plinth as display platform.
I cannot tell a lie. My wife brought this Fantini® branded Chocolate Mousse Filled Cake to celebrate a Showroom Open House. Though we couldd not attend the evening festivities, we did make sure the cake arrived beforehand (though delivery of Fantini from Italy may not be quite so rapid). The personalization, however, is a good idea for your own next in-store event. We can recommend a good custom bakery if you need.
There is a “cost overhead” and “physical overhead” when retailing imported Fantini faucets, shoer heads, jets, and water massagers. In this case the physical overhead is looking good. One of Fantini’s claims to fame is that you can order many designs in the RAL color of your choice. Good for bathroom highlights or matching other fixtures. To sell the benefit, Fantini shows off the benefit as here. Fun fixturing, but please do check with your Fantini dealer on the “cost” to you before getting your heart set on a color. And never order in August when the Italians and all Europe is on vacation or you will also incur a “Time overhead.” CLICK the thumbnail for alternate view. Note that the backdrop is simple painted particle board.
Exactly what temperature did you want for your shower? Here a multiplicity of Fantini® mixing valves would seem to empower extensive choice. Does each remember a particular temperature? Can you dial in oils, scents, soaps or unguents? Sorry, no. These are just some of the RAL colors you can order faucets and showers in from Fantini. See that they are eyecatchimg enough that only grey painted particle board is required as a display backdrop. CLICK the thumbnail for alternate view.
If you’ve got the ability to custom color items, then flaunt it says Fantini®. You would be hard pressed nott to find some shade, hue or color you liked in this linear wall of offerings. The black-and-white main holding shot and suble hue insets are quiet enough not to upstage the true color show. CLICK the gallery and step through the presentation.
White-on-Black is always chic and dramatic. And the use of wonderful typography and kerning elevates this Fantini® store entry to branding art. I am not sure what role the Horse Rampant plays in Fantini heraldry, but many European firms have long histories and might be carrying some of that heritage forward into the present.

The backlit, vignetted, green backdrop for this Fantini® Floorstanding Tub Faucet was as much a showpiece as the fixture itself. The pure white faucet powder coating would have stood out more if spotlighted or front lit, still you could not ignore the minimalist overall call for attention. CLICK the thumbnail for included Brand and Designer attributions. These Italians sure know design.
