Antoni Arola considers Palma as if it were a landscape project that will be transformed over time, once the designer has fi nished the fi rst part of the job.
The capacity for Palma to create ambience within an interior setting increases with its growth like a luminous hanging garden. The classic globe, slightly flattened here evolves towards a more organic form and the suspended version with an almost imperceptible cable support accentuates the floating sensation. Nature takes control of the space. With the pendant lamps the interior ambience takes on a life of its own with the possibility of integrating plants with the lighting compositions.
Antoni Arola is the designer of the Flamingo collection for Vibia. His projects include diverse fields of design: lighting, articles of furniture, landscaping and exhibitions. With the Flamingo hanging lamp Arola combines artistic experimentation in his design work with lighting research through the use of materials and LED technology.
Light creates, renders and gives life. Through light we perceive the landscape, architecture and the spaces we inhabit, stimulating our senses and perceptions. Each of us possesses a unique identity, a personal point of view and a subjective way of perceiving reality.
