Emanating in patterns
by Anna Moldenhauer | 4/3/2018
A luminaire whose light source remains hidden: Stefan Diez has designed “Guise” for Vibia.
The designers of TEMPO were inspired
by the search for a universal language of
lighting that could be brought together under
the umbrella of a single system. To do so
Lievore Altherr explored lighting archetypes
from different cultures and regions around
the world, concentrating on three that are
reduced to their most essential expression;
a collection of suspended light fittings
supported from ceilings or cantilevered arms.
Each of the archetypcal lamps is clearly
legible in the final collection, expressed using
three different glass diffusers that provide
different lighting effects based on their
One a classic bulb under a disc shape
reflector that directs a general ambient light
downwards; another reinterprets the classic
opaline globe through a softly rounded
ovaloid shape with progressive translucence
that emits a general and ambient light; and
a version of the angular opaline lamps that
provides a diffuse general light.
All of the various elements belonging to the
TEMPO collection are inspired by degrees
of luminance and the interplay of opacity,
translucence and transparency. Each of
the lamps provides a solution for different
lighting situations and can be combined
with pendant or arm support structures. The
common thread for all three strands of the
collection is the creation of atmosphere and
TEMPO is available in pendant and wall sconce versions. Both versions come in disc, angle lamp and opaline bulb options. The finishes are graphite black, matt cream white, green and terracota.
