Flamingo Wallpaper* Award 2017
The prestigious ground breaking publication Wallpaper* has bestowed a 2017 Design Award on the Flamingo pendant light fitting, created by Antoni Arola for Vibia within the “Best Sleep Over” category.
Flamingo deconstructs its elements allowing different assemblies to be configured by architects, interior designers and other lighting professionals. The LED light source projects onto a series of disks, supported by slender metal wires providing an indirect illumination that works as an up-light or a down-light with different effects depending on the distance between the various elements.
The bible for design aficionados, originally founded by Tyler Brûlé in the 1990s Wallpaper* selects outstanding design related “people, places and things of the year” from around the world in a total of 11 special award categories. This year’s jury included brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec as well as Amanda Levete, Laetitia Casta, Tom Sachs and Ramdane Touhami.
