Casa Decor 2016

Casa Decor is the main event for the Spanish design scene and welcomes Spain’s finest (interior) designers to Madrid. It’s the place to be to connect with professionals or to discover the latest trends and creations. For this event different top designers are designated one room to show what they’re capable of. Modular and Marisa Gallo of desiging agency Interiorisimo are participating in the ongoing 2016 edition.

For Modular, this is the very first edition, but for the people at Interiorisimo Casa Decor feels like home. They have participated at this special design event before in 2010, ’11, ’12 and ’15. This is the first time, however, they get to restyle the restaurant area. Let's meet these lovely people! 


Who is Marisa Gallo?

Marisa Gallo is the founder and General Director of interior design company Interiorisimo. Born in Madrid, she studied interior design and architecture at the Institución Artística de Enseñanza (IADE). She’s a respected interior designer with over twenty years of experience and an impressive portfolio of over one hundred projects! On top of that, she also featured as a television show host for the program ‘Decoración fácil’ on Canal Decasa, where she helped people design their homes.

For this year's edition of Casa Décor Marisa has decorated the restaurant area of the building on the Calle de Atocha 34 in Madrid.


What does Interiorisimo stand for?

Interiorisimo is an interior designing company that adopted its own style by combining elegance, classicism and new design trends.

The team at Interiorisimo takes care of the concept and complete realisation of interior designing projects. They have experience with residential, hospitality and retail projects, both permanent and temporary installations.


What was the plan with the restaurant?

Marisa combined different styles, thus creating a disruptive interior for the restaurant. She was inspired by the tropics and flamingos in particular. To her, flamingos represent elegance, which can be seen in the interior as well.

Modular was chosen as a lighting partner since our lighting solutions, especially the Smart family, offer the quality needed for this kind of project. Marisa Gallo thought Smart lotis (82 & 115), Smart kup 82 and Smart surface tubed 82 perfectly fitted into the interior she had in mind. “Modular offers fixtures that are designed with great care. These lighting solutions help us highlight certain details in this project.”
