July 8, 2020

In a 9,000 square-foot villa in Dubai, Rome-based Innova Italia design studio created an airy, contemporary space with luxe Italian furnishings and Vibia lighting.

Throughout the six-bedroom home, a rich material mix—metal, marble, and wood—adds visual interest as does a pale palette interspersed with swaths of vibrant color and texture.

The villa’s double-height entrance hall serves as a striking showpiece for the project. Here, the designers installed Arik Levy’s customizable Wireflow Chandelier, which fills the vertical expanse and draws the eye upwards to connect the two levels.

A modern take on the traditional chandelier, the oversized fixture is crafted of black electrical cables that trace an ethereal outline. Fitted with four tiers of LED light terminals, its graphic presence picks up the marble’s black veining while casting light over the carved-wood mosaic below it.

The Wireflow Chandelier also appears in the entertainment room. Its intricate web of wires suspended over biomorphic seating captures the room’s avant-garde attitude and allows full view of the city skyline from the window.

In the dining room, Levy’s Wireflow Lineal is positioned above the table, creating a focal point in the open space. Its two-dimensional silhouette is a study in geometry, a trio of linear constellations that doubles as a minimalist tapestry.

Several of the bedrooms feature Jordi Vilardell’s Slim pendant. The elegant cones hang from tapers on either side of the bed, anchoring it within the room and acting as sleek reading lamps.

Tipped with frosted glass diffusers, the pendants cast a diffuse LED light for candlelit ambience, its dark finish a bracing contrast with the orange and red wallpaper behind it.
