NEWS: Vibia Launches CREA at HD Expo


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.

IN THE STUDIO WITH : RESOLUTE

The Resolute Studio

Last weekend we took a trip to Seattle, Washington to pay a visit to the good people at Resolute. After nearly 23 years in the business, they understand that providing lighting solutions for architects and designers includes creating a product that encompasses efficiency, durability, flexibility and a classic aesthetic.

Resolute has striven, with great success, to engineer lighting systems that look like classic decorative fixtures, but operate with the efficiency and durability of an architectural product.

There isn’t much they haven’t thought of:

  • All their fluorescent fixtures are dimmable
  • They’ve mastered a technique so their diffusers attach seamlessly to create fully sealed fixtures that are completely dust-proof and easy to clean.
  • They use a standard set of fabric options from Knoll Textiles and Carnegie Fabrics to make their shades but offer designers an option to customize the choice of fabric.
  • Resolute is constantly adapting their product line to be compatible with the most efficient lamping. Their LED panels are formulated for the most even distribution of light with no hot spots.

Dialog between the factory and the designer is an essential part of their process. Their clients take full advantage of the fact that Resolute products are customizable in terms of size, finish and lamping. Instead of searching for the right product to buy, they go to Resolute to get the product they need manufactured.
