Emanating in patterns
by Anna Moldenhauer | 4/3/2018
A luminaire whose light source remains hidden: Stefan Diez has designed “Guise” for Vibia.
Antoni Arola was inspired by the beauty of historic hanging gardens with the creation of Palma. And other references closer to home such as Mediterranean rationalism, giving his design an element of cultural continuity. It’s a lighting system that introduces the planting normally associated daylight in the outdoors, to an indoors setting. And promotes a return to nature for our day-today settings.
Palma’s design is based on elemental forms, its luminous quality expressed though a warm quality dimmable light. Filtered by two glowing half spheres of blown opal glass, joined together by an aluminium ring, in a graphite or white finish. The classic globe, slightly flattened here evolves towards a more organic form and the suspended version with an almost imperceptible cable support accentuates the floating sensation.
The collection also makes possible multiple globe compositions, vertical and horizontal in order to create visual axes on a larger scale, integrating vegetation, for both the pendant and the wall sconce versions. It can also be used as an individual globe. With this approach numerous options are made possible. One of the most innovative is the use of multiple wall sconce lamps for public spaces.
Antoni Arola considers Palma as if it
were a landscape project that will be
transformed over time, once the designer
has finished the first part of the job. The
capacity for Palma to create ambience
within an interior setting increases with its
growth like a luminous hanging garden.
