Milan Design Week celebrated its 60th anniversary with a programme focused on creativity and innovation. Vibia participated in the preeminent international event, showcasing its collections at Salone de Mobile in the Rho fairgrounds as well as at Fuorisalone in the Brera Design District.
At Fuorisalone, Hi Lite Next served as the site of a special Vibia event on June 7 to reveal its latest luminaires. Several installations of Plusminus were shown as well as Diego Fortunato’s Mayfair Mini.
Another Fuorisalone display of Vibia luminaires was at Elmar Cucine, a showroom designed by the acclaimed architect studio Palomba Serafini. Four Plusminus installations and four Mayfair Mini brightened the space. The latter, measuring a diminutive 38cm x 20cm, cast a contained pool of diffuse, downward light for an intimate effect.
The DAAily Lounge at the Swiss Center included a group of Plusminus semi spheres suspended over café tables, illuminating an Archdaily, Architonic, and Designboom event on June 8.
Inspired Barcelona, a travelling exhibit held at Fuorisalone, featured an installation of Plusminus semi spheres and the Flatpendant by Ichiro Iwasaki, a disc-shaped diffuser that forms horizontal planes of light. Martín Azúa, who has designed several collections for Vibia, created Inspired Barcelona, which showcases the Catalan city’s creativity in different lounge spaces.
