Di Di is the diminutive member of the Bai family of pendants by Neri & Hu, conceived with an eclectic mix of time-honored artistry and up-to-the-minute LED function. Barcelona-based Parachilna has quickly made its name with offerings like this standout fixture with its handcrafted structure and ceiling canopy in rich bronze electroplated steel. Shimmering mouth-blown glass diffuser in a choice of transparent, amber or grey for the desired tone of overall illumination from the strip LED column positioned within.

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.”
