Defy the trends, forget the dogma and find the art within the local heartbeat of Transilvania. Treat it in a contemporary way, et voila: FAIN Sibiu came to life.

1600 square meters of genuine elements, where geometry meets culture, giving back to the community a space with the look and feel of what history has faded over time.

On different terms, a location where you can smell manufacture all over the place. Besides the name - fain means beautiful in Transylvanian dialect - every piece of furniture, object of decoration and functional device was tailor-made inside Twins Studio’s workshop, crafting high quality brass and wood.

In completion to the process of embodying local values through design, we reached out to exceptional local artisans who have left their mark.

FAIN is functionally leveled on 3 different floors, ready to fulfill the needs of all 3 levels of experiences: diurnal, twilight and nocturnal. They all seem different but lookalike at the same time, making FAIN a top-notch spot for the social stories of Sibiu, in 2024 and hopefully, for many years to come.
