Come Dine With Vibia!
According to Vibia, going out is the new staying in. However, we don’t agree!
Many up-and-coming restaurants, trendy eateries and stylish bars are recreating the cosy calming feel of home. With the best comfort food being served, relaxing environments and casual dining situations, these experiences are inspired by the contentment of home.
By staying in, you can create the ambience you desire for intimate gatherings or bustling dinner parties.
One of the many reasons we dine out is the extraordinary experience we get from a new and unique environment. Recreating the sense of occasion with personalised design at home can transform the way we approach dining, as well as how we treat the everyday rituals.
The right lighting can influence the entire interior design, whether you’re aiming for a minimalist style or a casual inviting space.
Get inspired by Vibia lighting to create a dining/kitchen area worth staying in for!

Featured – Vibia Mayfair
Designed by Diego Fortunato the Vibia Mayfair lamp has an elegant and timeless design yet hides a revolutionary past.
“I wanted to design a product with a historical reference because people, in these times of uncertainty, love to have some reference of the past.” Diego Fortunato
Fortunato looked for inspiration in the classic billiard style lamp which was used to illuminate 18th Century lounges and games rooms. The sophisticated style of the lamp inspired him to create a versatile design which would be able to be placed anywhere, such as in the home or office.
The Vibia Mayfair is produced with the latest LED lighting which is made of two layers. One layer provides a perfectly even light by reflecting off the inside of the shade and the other, a warmer indirect up-light.This neutral design approach is complemented by a range of matte and gloss finishes and comes in a variation of table, floor and pendant lamps.

Vibia Wireflow – Best in Lighting!
Elle Decoration is unmistakably one of the leading forums in interior design, setting trends and featuring only the best in design. July’s issue has seen the return of Elle Decoration’s International Design Awards. For the category Best in Lighting it was awarded to Vibia for their Wireflow pendant light.
We are proud to be a Vibia distributor supplying the Wireflow and the full Vibia range to the UK market.
The Wireflow pendant series was designed by Arik Levy and has become an iconic product for the company. It was first released for display in 2013 at Euroluce Milan Salone de Mobile where it became a highly anticipated release for 2014.
The idea behind the unique structure of the Wireflow is the deconstruction of a chandelier, taking it back to its simplistic form. The design reflects the outline of grand chandeliers often creating a 2D effect, comparable to a line drawing. Arik Levy was experimenting with the idea of extreme simplification, focusing on a delicate silhouette but maintaining a strong formal presence. Achieving this, Levy created a groundbreaking design which has won three awards to present. Futuristic and minimalist in its appearance, it is easy to see why the Wireflow is chosen time and time again for commercial projects and large residential spaces.
The series varies is size, simplicity and shape. Designs such as 0315 has a very complex geometric style and large scale, where as the 0313 is smaller and simplified making suitable for domestic use. The Wireflow range has a wide variety of formations to choose from, each of which are customisable to suit/fit into the interiors in mind. This design is a versatile lighting sculpture, which continues to be popular for its modern and impacting presence.

This year the event has predicted four key trends based upon the popular themes and attention created by the exhibitors and exhibition visitors. The first unsurprising trend is Metallics.

Our second trend From Maison and Objet is Hints of Neon, maybe not to everyone’s liking but a just a hint of a bright colour can add a bright cheerful pop of colour into our homes, especially appropriate for the Spring/Summer time. It is a nod to the 90’s as Fashion has also done. Neon has been seen on textiles, furniture, home accessories and also lighting. Be brave and give it a try! Here are our Picks for Neon Trend:

Our final trend noted from Maison and Objet is the Natural Minerals, the style has come from the increasing need for eco friendly home fashions and is becoming increasing popular. Aesthetics showcasing a rustic, hand crafted and natural look, often paired with pastel and neutral colours to complete the highly stylish design. Here are our picks from this theme:
