Vibia → Shades & Light
Vibia is a Spanish architectural lighting brand, founded in 1987 and based in Barcelona, a lively and creative city especially in the field of design, culture and innovation.
For Vibia light is life, it is one of the forces that have participated in the creation of the world, it shapes environments, furnishes, dresses objects and transforms space by changing the perception we have of it. Starting from this assumption, Vibia produces lamps that allow everyone to interpret environments and spaces in a personal way, thanks to a wide range of lighting fixtures that fit every style, but all characterized by innovative design, creativity and good taste. For Vibia design is everything and is not limited to the simple design of the object, but follows its path, monitors its insertion in harmony with the context and its correct installation, shares the experience it arouses and constantly assists the customer so that he is gratified.
The collaboration with designers is the basis of Vibia’s production: designers and architects such as Ramón Esteve and the studio Lievore Altherr Molina or Ramos&Bassols, Victor Carrasco and Diego Fortunato or Ichiro Iwasaki, have worked with the Spanish brand, having at their disposal ample freedom in design and great availability of innovative and technological tools. Every lighting project by Vibia is highly innovative, from lamps to table or floor lamps, both for indoor and outdoor use. Lamps such as Vibia Wireflow or Vibia Slim, are to be considered real light installations, almost light sculptures, that furnish and give style and character to projects. Vibia lamps are present in many famous projects all over the world, shaping themselves according to the designers’ needs, but always keeping a clean and linear design that can be adapted to the customer’s needs. Customization is therefore one of the brand’s objectives, which summarizes this mission in the claim “Light your way”.
Designers find in Vibia products a valid help in design, because they can shape the space, imagine their own light composition, manage project information, share details, model the light according to the needs of the project, visualize the final design.
