Distinguished by their distinctive arms, chandeliers brighten spaces with beautiful overhead light while doubling as design statements. Vibia is known for its many iconic chandeliers that offer myriad lighting effects in one-of-kind silhouettes. Here, we share some of our favourites, along with inspired ideas for displaying them.
With a sensibility at once industrial and modern, Wireflow offers a pleasing juxtaposition against the backdrop of centuries-old architecture. Its slim form traces an airy outline that allows full view of the room’s vaulted ceiling, its black wires providing a graphic punch against the white walls.
Martín Azúa’s Halo Jewel evokes its namesake by presenting light as a precious ornament. Its elegant shape is suspended by a length of slender, artisan-crafted steel like a delicate bijou on a necklace that casts an ambient glow.
Halo’s long, lean lines create a focal point over select spots in an interior, directing attention like an exclamation point to a low table in the center of the room as well as to a bench along the perimeter.
Vibia’s Flamingo chandelier by Antoni Arola displays the elegant poise of the bird that inspired it, the sculptural form projecting a feeling of weightlessness as it hovers overhead. It features a unique deconstructed design that separates the LED light source from its translucent discs, creating dramatic halos of illumination. In a multilevel office, a trio of Flamingo pendants are suspended in a stairwell in various personalised configurations.
The grouping connects and brightens the upper and lower floors, while serving as an ethereal art installation.
Antoni Arola also designed the Palma chandelier, which connects light and vegetation as in a natural landscape. Hanging from nearly invisible cables, two semi-circles of blown opal glass joined by an aluminum strap accommodate plants along its axis, evoking the look of a luminous floating garden.
In a commercial space, Palma is positioned along a walkway with a profusion of greenery that spills over its sides. The arrangement brings a touch of the outdoors in with a warm, organic look, and emphasizes the lofty ceiling heights.
