Emanating in patterns
by Anna Moldenhauer | 4/3/2018
A luminaire whose light source remains hidden: Stefan Diez has designed “Guise” for Vibia.
With North designer Arik Levy has come up with
a new category of lamp. One that fuses a floor
lamp and a suspended lamp, recreating a floating
effect. A long carbon fibre rod, its lightweigth
and flexible qualities making it the perfect
support, hangs from the ceiling via an almost
imperceptible steel cable. A counter-weight at
floor level guides the electrical cable from the
conical shaped shade to the wall socket and
makes it possible to place the light fitting in any
desired position. With its essential design North
pierces the air extending its luminous coverage
while defining a space without overwhelming.
Arik Levy has come up with a dynamic
system of adjustable angles in order to
bring light where it’s required, in an exercise
of functional and poetic deconstruction.
The sharper angle circumscribes a close
and intimate area, a more open angle
creates a more social space. Elegant and
stylised, it’s the lightest floor lamp yet
The name of the collection makes a
reference to the qualities of north light.
A different and more diff use light that’s
projected forcefully while also avoiding
sharp shadows. The careful treatment of
the diffuser as well as the Led light source
lend it a great warmth.
The conical shade made from aluminium is available in graphite, blue, cream and white with a matt finish. It’s equipped with a dimmer switch provided within the electrical cable.
