Architecture as a Corporate identity

Spizzico is the Italian fast-food brand operating in Italy, Greece, Switzerland, France and USA. The creation of a new corporate identity for Autogrill combining the red structure design and smart technology is remarkable: a rectangular building with round corners. The truncated-conical ALUCOBOND® panels fabricated with a “double calendered” technique knitted with patented buttons on the “ship prow” are used at the “drive in”, the lighting effects and signs. The concept was realised by high-tech resources and CNC work centres.
