With the launch of CREA comes 14 new collections with 5 new modular design families. All of them easily designed through Vibia’s interactive website featuring full CRM and project management tools available through CREA.
When we visited Vibia at Euroluce last year, we wrote that they stole the show with the introduction of their newest modular systems that are as much art installations as they are lighting systems. Vibia’s R&D visionaires have created CREA (Create Your Project), a digital design tool featured on the Vibia website to go hand in hand with all their latest designs, but configured to work for any Vibia product.

Sunday was the first day of Frankfurt’s Light+Building fair: The world’s biggest trade fair for lighting and intelligent building. It boasts over 1,500 lighting manufacturers (including Brand Van Egmond, Vibia, Flos, Ares, DGA, Fabbian, Marset and Bover) making it one of the most complete representations of the lighting industry.

From decorative to architectural to outdoor, almost the full spectrum of lighting is represented at the fair. The theme at Light+Building this year is energy efficiency and incorporating lighting efficiency into the broader scheme of engineering, architecture and construction. On our first day we visited the booths of Ares and Marset – two brands that never disappoint in their showings.
Here are some photos from our first few days at the fair:

RUF Project (Rural Urban Fantasy Project) recently completed this swoon-worthy home on Saltspring Island, BC. Inspired by West Coast mid-century modernists – especially Arthur Erickson – the house is a contemporary take on the longhouse that pushes the concept of post and beam to its limits.
LightForm was ecstatic to work with RUF whose client’s design brief of rustic Canadian cabin meets modern villa, allowed them relatively free rein.

FontanaArte's Yumi, designed by Shigeru Ban
Longtime LightForm favourite, FontanaArte showed a promising lineup of new fixtures at Euroluce this year. This Italian company has been creating some of the most iconic and recognizable pieces since its inception in 1933. We think many of their new lights, like the Yumi above, will also join the FontanaArte masterpiece mantle. What do you think?

Anything goes in Ares' Euroluce 2011 installation
Ares’ new outdoor collection: architectural with personality. Ares’ installation at Euroluce 2011 was definitely one of the most memorable, but not just for its creativity–this company continues to put out some of the best architectural lighting in the business.
