Foscarini - Italian touch of style

FoscariniThe above lighting display seems to have a hint of Alexander Calder inspiration - Italian lighting store, Foscarini, was recently opened along Kapi'olani Ave.

Interestingly, another Italian shop called Natuzzi also opened right next door. The interior and exterior of this complex is actually quite exquisite!

It is a lovely photograph and captures the scene. When I look at stores, of any kind, I must try to imagine how many items must be sold each month to pay the rent for the building. Then how many must be sold to pay for the electricity and for the employees. When I think of buildings and businesses in them I am always trying to imagine how the bills will get paid.

Maybe it only happens this way if you have started a business and then run it. I did that and it is not easy.

Thank you for stopping and commenting on my photography.

Such a cool contrast between the whites and the colours! The coloured lamp in the front reminds me of spanish painter Miró´s works.

Sharp lines, bright colours, great composition. Did they pay you for such a brilliant advertising campaign?

I'd like to get some of the colored hanging lights for my kitchen. Okay, okay, I'll open up a pizza place to make it the Italian avenue in Honolulu!
