With a shared passion for 20th century Scandinavian design, Viveca Gonzalez and Shukri Girgis summon a similar restraint with their statement floor lamp. The designers behind Barcelona studio OX hew to simple lines with a luxe twist, perching Beta's cylindrical glass diffuser atop a brass stem that is then anchored to a square base in cream white or crisp black marble. The simplicity of the silhouette gets further discernment with a choice of finishes—matte opal or glossy black for the diffuser and the stem in either matte graphite or copper electroplated finish.

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.”
