Support Center entrance
Piu Veloce

Floisand Studio guided the redevelopment of Pagliacci Pizza‘s former central kitchen in Seattle’s Pike/Pine neighborhood into a Support Center for the chain, a retail location and upgraded corporate headquarters.

Resolute contributed to these projects in several ways.

Hand blown glass window pendants were produced for the Pike Street restaurant and similar glass was utilized to create a cluster for the company’s board room.

The glass was blown by Resolute’s Alex Maughan and former Manifesto glass studio team member Greg Clark who now runs his own studio, De Cecio Glass. Classic lozenge shapes were produced in transparent “smoke” glass and illuminated with LED filament lamps. The cluster hangs from a polished aluminum cloud.

A large exterior sign was produced employing color tunable RGB LED. This was the first sign Resolute produced for Pagliacci and the general scheme has been executed on subsequent projects.

Discrete Purity 225 architectural fixtures were utilized in all three areas.

The crown jewel of these projects was the creation of a special Flying Vespa for the Support Center entrance. A vintage scooter was salvaged from a closed retail location. It had been bolted to the floor in a mall location and had been severely abused. New Jet Age inspired bodywork was created and the bike modified to “fly” and illuminate. The exterior is polished aluminum and the interior is gold leafed. LED sources light the interior and give a convincing effect of fire.
