Vibia: Unique European Lighting Design

Vibia Offers Inspiration through Remarkable Lighting Design

Specifiers in the Northwest have come to love the sophisticated and sleek design of Vibia, a high-end decorative lighting company based in Barcelona, Spain. Inspired by a city that loves design and culture, Vibia’s team of designers channel their abilities to create extraordinary products and experiences like never before.

Design is central to Vibia. Designers are encouraged to create through light and space, unbound by standards or convention. Products constantly evolve, utilizing various materials, light sources, electronics, smart dimming control and connectivity systems to create the right emotion and use of space, and improve the quality of environment.

For Vibia, design is not only about the product; it’s about creating an experience. In addition to producing awe-inspiring designs, Vibia can assist in the choice of product to best capture the feelings a client wishes to convey in lighting and aesthetics specific to the project.

Vibia’s products include Pendants, Floor/Table, Ceiling/Wall, and Bathroom & Outdoor lighting. Vibia also offers personalization according to the needs of the client or project, working directly with the product designer.

Here are a few selections of notable Vibia designs:

The Wireflow Volumetric collection, designed by Arik Levy, is an example of minimalist presence within a large open space. The supporting structure for the Wireflow comprises black electrical cable and a 3.7 Watt LED light source. The cables trace large three-dimensional geometries, which despite their size creates a sense of transparency that defines its captivating look. It is available in 4-, 6- and 8-LED versions.

The Algorithm pendant lamp collection is designed by Toan Nguyen. This collection fuses beauty and geometry, typical of many of Vibia’s striking designs. The Algorithm collection is comprised of pressed glass-encompassed spheres of LED light suspended at different heights and attached to the ceiling via a floating tubular structure.

As with many of Vibia’s geometric-styled pendants and chandeliers, the Algorithm can be installed according to original design, or modified to suit a specific space.

The Origami LED collection, designed by Ramón Esteve, is typical of Vibia’s many wall lights; free-floating and customizable to suit any space. With only two simple lighting modules, designers can create an infinite number of compositions from only a single electrical point.

The Origami collection is equally suited for indoor and outdoor lighting, given its IP65 rating.

The Duo ceiling lamp, designed by the Ramos & Bassols design team, is a striking sculptural fixture projecting natural warmth through open volume, inspired by sustainability and wellness.

This flush-mount surface light is ideal for locations with a low ceiling where a pendant fitting is not applicable. The inner surface of the shade is lined with oak veneer; the outer matte-lacquered shell is aluminum. The LED light source provides even illumination through its polycarbonate diffuser.

The DUO ceiling lamp is available in three finishes: charcoal, cream and white.

These are only a few of the striking designs Vibia has to offer. A visit to their website is akin to a visit to an art gallery; each design fixture tests the balance between art and function.
