In a whimsical turn, Jerry! from São Paulo's Studio MY27 and its architect founder Marcio Kogan is inspired by the classic cat-and-mouse cartoon. The floor lamp's laser-cut aluminum structure takes the architectural form of a house within a house, suggested by the little animated creature's familiar home. With a white lacquered front and black back case, the lamp's workings are hidden away and only warmly diffused LED light is revealed through both the hole at the base and washing across the wall above from the groove at the top.

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.”
