The current world situation has ushered in a new normal, with myriad changes in our work and home lives. Companies are reimagining office spaces to safeguard employee health and increase wellness with new physical layouts and improved sanitation. Meanwhile, for the many people who will continue working remotely or in a hybrid mode, they require home offices that are productive and flexible enough to function in a physically distanced fashion.
One way to create a safe and comfortable work environment is with creative lighting. Here, we share ideas for rethinking residential and commercial office spaces with Vibia luminaires.
Arik Levy design, Sticks offers endless arrangements for home or office spaces. One composition features a rod cutting across each desk then swooping upwards to create its own architectural plane in space. In a second Sticks layout, a row of rotatable rods lines the walls and cantilevers out in crisp right angles. The geometric profile anchors the tables in the lofty room while providing vertical and horizontal light.
In a home office, Sticks defines the corner of a room, rising up along a wall and connecting to another rod that extends into space. The design delineates the work area with a graphic border while providing light on the wall and along the length of the desk.
A small meeting table with bar-style seating is brightened by two Duo luminaires. Designed by Ramos & Bassols, its unique material mix features an oak interior contained in a sleek, aluminum shell for a versatile vibe that’s at once earthy and industrial. The inverted bowl silhouette and wood offer a warm, organic sensibility, while the metal ensures an even distribution of light on the table below.
The modular Tube collection by Ichiro Iwasaki offers personalization options for any setting with a network of tubes that channels light to different shades. In a conference room, this composition features two ceiling lamps to provide general room illumination connected to a smaller pendant that casts focused light over the bar table.
This home’s dining room table doubles as a desk and is complemented by the Tube luminaire. The metal conduits snake across the ceiling like a metro map with the pendants suspended in a web-like configuration at varying heights and colors for visual dimension and layered lighting.
