Lighting That Looks to Nature

May 4, 2020

As part of its mission to provide better spaces for better living, Vibia offers many collections that conjure the natural world—in inspiration, design, and materials.

Among them are Palma, designed by Antoni Arola. With this lamp, plants one typically associates with an alfresco setting take pride of place indoors, creating an interior landscape to rival an outdoor one. Inspired by ancient hanging gardens, it connects light and vegetation as in the natural world. Pure and elemental, Palma’s organic design accommodates greenery along its axes.

Duo by Ramos & Bassols is similarly inspired by nature. Featuring a rich, wood interior and gently curving organic form, it exudes a soothing, enveloping sensibility.

The simple, circular silhouette contains a veined oak timber interior that stands in counterpoint to its sleek aluminum shell. The wood lends the LED-powered fixture a warm glow while the exterior ensures even distribution of light.

Recalling its namesake plant, Antoni Arola and Enric Rodriguez’s Bamboo is distinguished by a slender silhouette and a stem studded with LEDs. It serves as a subtle punctuation point indoors or outdoors and casts a warm wash of light along hallways, walkways, and common areas. Three earth-toned finishes enhance its natural look.

A Xuclà and Alemany design, Break conjures a collection of rocks found in nature. The floor lamp is offered in two avant-garde styles: a beveled cube that casts a beam of downward light over the surrounding area and a pair of blocky volumes stacked atop one another, the space between them allowing LED-powered light to pass through. Break comes in khaki lacquer, rust lacquer, and concrete finishes.
