Musa: A Poetic Expression of Light

Designed by Kristoffer Fagerström and Charlotte Ackerman of the Stockholm collective Note Design Studio, the new Musa collection for Vibia is inspired by nature’s poetic delicacy.

Its simple silhouette consists of two ovals: the circular bowl and the hand-blown, milky-white opal glass shade with the LED-powered bulb it cradles within its concave curves.

To create Musa, the designers began by painstakingly folding pieces of paper to create prototypes, followed by extensive sketching and 3-D printing of various versions.

The result? A smooth, circular bowl whose aluminum dissipator is cleverly tucked behind the glass so as not to disrupt the fixture’s organic, flowing form.

A small, dimmable bulb nestles at its base, casting a soft glow that spreads across the larger sphere which contains and diffuses it.

Musa’s warm reflection is enhanced by a choice of subtle, earth-tone finishes: white, salmon, and mink.
