Vibia, recognized lighting brand based in Barcelona, presents a collection of lamps that promises to transform any space.
The table is a place for many things but, above all, it is a place for sharing and communion. It is around the table that, almost every day, we meet with our family and it is also there that we meet for the main celebrations. Lighting a table is just as important as the materials that make it up. From intimate to convivial, from business meetings to romantic encounters light makes experiences, light is life.
The Kontur light by Sebastian Herkner is a light of two elements, The unmistakable physical frame and opaline glass diffuser as well as the magical suggestive light that comes and goes. It represents that which is there and that which is possible.
Halo Jewel by Martín Azúa throws light on tables where special moments are shared. Its angled poise, its universal geometry, its metal clips make time around the table precious.
The table is many things during the course of the day. A workspace, a dining table, a kitchen worktop a just a place for a coffee break. This element is even more marked with a light fitting like Flamingo, a fitting that is chameleon-like, adjustable, versatile – many things all at once. Antoni Arola added a counterweight that intuitively allows the user to fit the ambience with the table, no matter what demands are placed on it.
Food is a universal language and the dining table is the setting for the theatre that is food. Getting the right balance between seeing and appreciating but not saturating the table with light is a delicate balancing act. Ichiro Iwasaki’s Flat bounces light off flat metal circles floating in space back down to the focus of the dining table.
Musa by Note Design Studio projects the light that encourages intimacies; soft and rounded, indirect with a visible focal point. Like the art of conversation Musa describes a light that is authentic but never too direct and draws us together through language and lighting.
