Introducing the Halo Wall Light: Merging Light and Matter

13th January, 2020

With the introduction of the Halo Wall light, designer Martín Azúa continues to explore and expand upon his award-winning collection of the same name for Vibia. Light’s pure, elemental quality and the minimalist designs of the 1960s inspired this latest incarnation of Halo.

Distilled to its essence with a rigourous, streamlined silhouette, the wall lamp’s basic unit is a simple light rod resting upon an aluminum base and measuring a meter in length.

The fixture’s crisp linear geometry is softened by its ambient glow. The diffuser renders the LEDs imbedded in the rods invisible, lending the lamp an ethereal look as it washes the walls in subtle illumination.

The material and light appear to merge, until, as Azúa describes it, “they become a unified whole.”

With versions featuring multiple light sticks, the Halo Wall lamp can be adjusted by hand into vertical, horizontal, or diagonal positions. Spare or sprawling, parallel or perpendicular in profile, it makes a dramatic statement piece.

Large-scale arrangements transform into striking light sculptures adorning the walls of public spaces in hotels, companies, or cultural institutions. Positioned next to sofas or armchairs, it serves as a reading light that doubles as wall art.
