The diminutive A Di Di from Parachilna's Bai family of wall and pendant lights reflects its overarching sense of artisanal craftsmanship in a contemporary idiom. Designed by Neri & Hu, the steel structure and wall mount are rendered in a rich bronze electroplate. An elegant mouth-blown diffuser offers a choice of lighting effects—available in a choice of shimmering transparent, amber or grey glass.

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.”
