Wireflow for Vibia
Crafted of industrial black wire, the customisable fixture assumes myriad shapes in the space
At La Parisienne Assurances offices in Paris, Studio Razavi Architects devised a playful, adaptive design to meet the versatile needs of the customer. Internal spaces are carved out of curved and straight-line partitions in unexpected materials like wood, carpet and glass. And perfectly paired with the daring design is Arik Levy’s Wireflow free-form pendant for Vibia. Crafted of industrial black wire, the customisable fixture assumes myriad shapes in the space, scaling walls and ceilings in a reflection of the whimsical aesthetic. In one communal area, Wireflow ’s minimalist silhouette mirrors a mural outlining the Parisian skyline.
Vibia is based in Barcelona, a place of cultivated design culture and an important knowledge cluster, where they have been able to channel industrial and service suppliers’ abilities and construct a great team of people. Vibia aims to create solutions that adapt to the needs of people within diverse contexts. Their mission is to improve the relationships between people and their surroundings, their visual and emotional well being.
