The Bai family by Neri & Hu captures the artisan-infused take on cutting-edge design that has quickly brought Barcelona-based Parachilna to the fore in lighting design. Ma Ma Pendant takes shape with a structure and canopy in bronze electroplated steel and mouth-blown glass diffuser in a choice of transparent, amber or grey. Illumination comes from a double-play- both a strip LED column for overall ambiance and a downward-facing LED module at the bottom to spread light below.

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.”
