Vibia Cosmos: Heavenly Light

Homes

Vibia lights up the home like stars in the sky

Vibia turns to the sky for this otherworldly collection of glimmering spheres in suspension. Cosmos resembles stars in the vast darkness of space, with the light radiating from within.

With the incorporation of LED technology, the light remains completely integrated in the interior of every piece, creating a perfect symbiosis between design and light source. The largest disk turns on drawing a half moon on its surface and an effect of indirect illumination that supports an aesthetic and compositional quality in the environment.

With level volumes—some auto-illuminating, others projecting light—the pieces of the Cosmos collection create the optical illusion of spheres in composition.

Designed by Lievore Altherr Molina, the single-material finish invokes the opaque texture of river rocks, gathered like a refined pendant. Meanwhile, the lightness of their pieces, of different sizes, recreates the sensation of floating in the air on a mysterious way, almost magically.

The Cosmos lights form harmonious arrays, in perfect equilibrium with the space available horizontally, vertically and in depth.

In the Philippines, Vibia is distributed by Kuysen Enterprises. (website here).
