The suspended version of Jordi Veciana's Alistair series draws the eye to the handblown opal glass diffuser as the defining element of the hanging fixture. The Barcelona-based industrial designer brings a complementary restraint to the simple geometric armature in a similarly matte-finish gold-tone or graphite electroplated steel. A seemingly magical column of light caught in midair, the light brings a warming glow and enthralling atmosphere to any setting.

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.”
