Description

Gweilo means ghost in Chinese and there is definitely a spectral aspect to its table model Song, with its curves and dips fixed in midair. Made from hand-molded acrylic, the lighting concept was conjured by Toronto design studio Partisans and is produced by the lighting wizards at Barcelona's Parachilna. Its thermoforming process takes an etched optical-grade acrylic sheet and induces the characteristic folds while the transparent plastic is molten and still pliable. A metal strip containing an embedded LED is then attached to the edge when it cools to allow the signature effect of light catching the etchings —and producing the magical illumination.

Brand

Parachilna

Though based in Barcelona, Parachilna’s origins actually stretch all the way to its namesake, a desert ghost town in Australia. A random stop there years ago inspired Alfredo Valero and Roman Riera to eventually create a luxury lighting company dedicated to enduring craftsmanship, aided by European metalsmiths, glass blowers, ceramicists and other skilled artisans.

Collaborating with such notable modern designers as Jaime Hayon and Neri & Hu, partner Alfredo explains Parachilna’s purposeful process. “We don’t use industrial techniques,” he says. “Everything revolves craftsmanship, which means that there is a lot of work, from prototyping to finishing. When we say, ‘We don’t like it,’ we start all over again.”
