Description

Like a magical transparent sheet caught in a breeze, Qin is a sculptural floor lamp that suggests illumination can fold and bend like light rays themselves. From the series Gweilo (Chinese for ghost), it's the brainchild of Toronto-based design studio Partisans and handmade in Spain by Parachilna. The lamp's thermoforming process starts with an etched optical-grade acrylic sheet that is manipulated into the signature folds and curves while the material is molten and still pliable. A metal edge with an embedded LED strip is then affixed vertically to the cooled transparent sheet to diffuse the light across the etchings and intensify the illumination. Available in a choice of 2 sizes, Qin makes for a striking focal point or ad-hoc room divider.

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.”
