Vibia launches customisable lighting system made up of glass spheres

Dezeen promotion: Spanish lighting brand Vibia has launched its latest customisable lighting system, which features blown-glass spheres supported by a metal matrix.

The Algorithm LED lighting system is made up of light globes suspended at different heights and anchored to the ceiling by a tubular steel structure.

Each blown-glass sphere features a pattern on its surface that casts a textured and diffused light.

Like other solutions in Vibia's Crea collection, the Algorithm lighting system is designed as a "kit of tools" that gives architects and interior designers more freedom when choosing their fixtures and fittings.

"The intention was not to design a completely defined and finished product, but a tool which allows any customer to create his own lighting lamp, in relation with the architecture space, the area to light and the desired kind of graphic pattern," said designer Toan Nguyen.

"These individual parts constitute the kit of tools that designers can mould and adapt to individual commissions, a system of multiple modules that allows the specifics of each project to dictate the optimum lighting solution."

Vibia is based in Barcelona, and has previously collaborated with the likes of Arik Levy, Martin Azúa and Ramón Esteve to create modular lighting systems.
