Parachilna in outback South Australia is a long way away from the Spanish design scene, but they both have one thing in common: their stars shine bright.
Román Riera and Alfredo Valero established Parachilna in 2014 after many successful years in the lighting industry. Born from the designers’ dedication to decorative lighting, their desire for luxury and their wish to preserve the traditional skills and knowledge of artisans, Parachilna has continued this legacy with the launch of its latest collections by three of the world’s most respected designers and studios.
Known for his experimental approach, artistry and skill, Spanish designer Jaime Hayón has created a collection of wall, floor and table lamps with a characteristically distinct style. Hayón’s latest designs are distinguished by their luxurious materials and fine craftsmanship. The minimalist structure of each light is simple in form and presented in blue, black, red or green lacquered steel and features a Dome that is reminiscent of a bell.
Gweilo, created by Partisans architectural studio in Toronto, is a collection of floor and table lamps that present more as sculptural forms than traditional lights. Crafted by hand moulding acrylic sheets over heat, these transparent structures are gently formed with no two pieces the same. Each Gweilo fitting takes on its own architectural form, which is illuminated with an LED strip that’s embedded in a golden anodised aluminium profile.
Denglong by Neri&Hu
Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu are the founding partners of Neri&Hu, the multi award-winning inter-disciplinary architectural design practice based in Shanghai. Creating a product that’s suited to both indoor and outdoor environments, their latest lighting collection for Parachilna is notably inspired by traditional Chinese lanterns. Fusing traditional and cutting-edge design, the Denglong ceiling and floor lamps boast an Asian influence, elegantly composed from aluminium and steel mesh with a gold lacquered steel top, a black or grey architectural concrete base and a fiberglass diffuser.
