Create an Outdoor Oasis

June 23, 2022

If the recent heat wave is anything to go by, we’d better get ready for a long hot summer. From barbecues and al fresco dining to relaxing poolside with a good book, the sunny season is finally in full swing and it’s high time we got our outdoor spaces in order.

If you’re lucky enough to have a patio, balcony, or garden, carefully considered outdoor lighting means you can enjoy the fresh air at any time of the day or night. Whether you’re looking to highlight a particular feature, integrate an outdoor seating area, or add an additional layer of sparkle, the right mix of fixtures will turn your outdoor space into a magical oasis after dark, letting you enjoy the warm summer breeze long after sundown.

Bringing indoor comfort to the outdoor environment has become a major trend in recent years. Designed by Jordi Vilardell, the principal characteristic of the Wind collection resides in the choice of material. Available in a range of finishes, including brown, green and ochre red, its diffuser is made from delicately woven fibreglass, produced using a filament winding technology to create a uniquely textured surface that unites indoor tradition with outdoor use.

A single, strategically positioned Wind floor lamp can transform an outdoor seating area into a cosy living room, matching the gentle heat of a summer evening with a warm, diffuse glow that won’t overpower your space.

Alternatively, a cluster will lend a charming look to a spacious terrace, its elegant silhouette introducing pools of soft light into the darkness and encouraging guests to sit back, relax and unwind.

Since enjoying nature is the main reason for spending time outdoors, the right lighting should enhance the existing scenery. The Meridiano floor lamp is the perfect choice for showcasing a garden’s best assets. As well as a light fitting, it can be composed as a group of stools or a side table, integrating an enchanting seating area into a garden, courtyard or poolside terrace.

Designed by Jordi Vilardell & Meritxell Vidal, Meridiano invites you to approach and absorb its magical luminous effect. Composed of a structure of steel rods in beige grey and off-white and equipped with an invisible LED light source, it radiates with indirect, ambient light from beneath its cover. Scattered across a lawn, Meridiano will decorate the terrain with intricate patterns of light and shadow, while nestling two or three strategically amongst the potted plants of a patio will enhance the surrounding textures and organic forms.

Designed by Xuclà, the Empty outdoor lighting collection forms part of Vibia’s ‘furniture meets light’ concept. Much like Meridiano, it incorporates a table, stool and light fixture into a single three-dimensional entity. Ideal for a contemporary terrace or commercial outdoor space, it adapts to any kind of setting, each structure positioned precisely as desired to form a unique arrangement.

Made of polymer concrete and methacrylate, Empty is weather resistant and built to last. Forming a geometric sculpture by day, at night its austere form is transformed into a luminous seating area or unique light installation thanks to an imperceptible LED source that radiates downwards from beneath its upper surface.
