OX designers Viveca Gonzalez and Shukri Girgis extend their luxe Beta series for Spanish brand Parachilna with a striking table lamp. The Barcelona-based creatives revere Scandinavian simplicity but interpret minimalism with elevated materials. A cylindrical diffuser tops a brass upright, with a square lamp base in stately marble in a choice of creamy white or inky black. And to suit its desired setting, Beta offers additional options for the glass diffuser in either matte opal or glossy black and the metal stem in electroplated matte graphite or copper tones.

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.”
