Skylights by Vibia: sky from the ceiling

“Not just lighting fixtures, these models radiate light which cascades from the ceiling. Objects that can be integrated with interior design and architecture, influencing layout and making rooms come alive. Vibia skylights make it possible to design a ceiling featuring daring sculptural objects and superb lighting effects.”

Light is the medium through which we perceive architecture and space, when that light is natural so much the better however in many circumstances that light needs to be augmented by artificial light. This collection of SKYLIGHTS produced by Vibia, takes its inspiration from the classic architectural device that introduces daylight deep into the plan without the requirement for access to natural light.

 

Through the use of innovative technology, refined engineering and clever design this collection of SKYLIGHTS gives interior designers and architects the opportunity of introducing a powerful and practical source of illumination into all kinds of spaces and projects.

Whether installed individually or combined to create luminous compositions these collections; UP, LINK XXL, BIG and PLUS represent a powerful tool to sculpt the light which is the source of our spatial perception.

 

UP

 

The traditional ceiling rose and decorative cornice of neo-classical domestic architecture provide the inspiration for UP based on the use of LED lighting refracted through the edge profile of the diffuser to recreate the subtle effect of a frame with light passing through from above, the overall depth of the fitting is merely 7cm. Designed by Ramos & Bassols for Vibia this surface mounted collection with refined detailing allows for a seamless integration with any ceiling.

The ceiling light UP is available in circular and rectangular versions in a choice of two finishes and the fitting is also dimmable.

LINK XXL

 

Resembling a cubic architecture assemblage extending from the ceiling the LINK XXL modules are designed to be composed in a free and creative manner made possible by the choice of surface mounted modules available in four sizes of varying dimensions and heights.

 

ARQUITECTO:

 

Designer Ramón Esteve has come up with this ambient lighting solution using LED technology to recreate the effects of natural light inter-reflected within the interior cavities of these sculptural light boxes based on indirect light. Up to 25 modules can be joined using a single electrical canopy, the system is also dimmable.

BIG

 

BIG is enormous, in terms of both size and innovation, revolutionising the traditional concept of a ceiling light, up to now practical but small and un-ambitious.

Firmly putting the ceiling light centre stage, BIG makes an XXL impact. Designers Lievore Altherr Molina have re-imagined the humble ceiling light as a skylight by enlarging the acrylic diffuser to cover almost the entire fitting, providing an even luminescence over this circular fitting available in 35, 60, 100 and 120 cm versions, available in built-in and surface mounted. The even nature of the light is even more powerful when used against a dark ceiling.

Vibia also produce a pendant version of BIG which can be angled and is particularly suitable for contract projects where making an impact is a consideration.

 

PLUS

 

A light fitting that ingeniously recreates the effect of natural light filtering through a skylight in the ceiling. Designed by X. Claramunt & M. de Mas for Vibia, PLUS provides an ambient light through its convex methacrylate diffuser which attenuates the overall luminance.

 

ARQUITECTO:

 

The PLUS collection of ceiling lights includes a range of options and sizes, the 35cm version with inset, semi-inset and surface mounted fittings is highly versatile, the later two suitable for outdoors and humid environments like bathrooms. The 80 and 120 cm versions (only in surface mounted options) also allow a seamless integration with the interior architecture. The fitting is dimmable making it appropriate for domestic and contract use.

Finished in matt white lacquer, once the light fitting is installed, PLUS can be painted to match the selected colour scheme.
