This newest modular ceiling fixture from Vibia is definitely one of the most stand out fixtures of 2012. Envisioning lighting that is both light source and art installation is becoming a common theme in Vibia’s new product line. Designed by Ramone Esteve, this voluminous fixture consists of four modules in different sizes and heights that connect to one another to offer a wide range of geometries.
Brilliantly enough, the R&D team at Vibia have kept in mind the difficulties of managing multiple power sources and junction boxes and have engineered the Link to require only one electrical connection to power up to 8 Link sections per configuration. On top of that, they’ve made it compatible with dimmable, energy efficient fluorescent lamping, which makes its use in residential environments all the more appealing.
The Link also creatively plays with the trajectories of light that emit from each piece, depending on your configuration, allowing you to create indirect ambient lighting.
The idea of having such an architectural piece be so totally customizable actively involves us in designing the piece for ourselves, which makes this piece all the more interesting.

Vibia’s showing this year at Salone Internazionale Del Mobile was a true testament to the company’s leadership in the lighting industry. The brand has consistently allowed new lighting and production technologies to guide their aesthetic inspiration, seeing new opportunities for form with each new technology.
Designer Jordi Vilardell excels in his partnership with Vibia once more in composing two unique additions to an already strong outdoor line. His playful outdoor floor and pendant series, Wind, has garnered much attention on several design blogs and his partnership with Meritxell Vidal in creating the Halley series has us all a little awe-struck. Inspired by the arches of a comet, the many iterations of the Halley series’ soft glow and luminous arches use LED strip technology to provide elegant, energy efficient lighting for the outdoors.
