Gweilo Han Floor Lamp

$3,075 - $4,000



Description

“Why can’t light pool, drip, or drape?” asks Alex Josephson, cofounder of Toronto design studio Partisans. One of the answers from the Gweilo (Chinese for ghost) series is Han, a floor lamp with a sculptural form that folds and bends like light rays themselves. Handmade by Parachilna in Spain, the thermoforming process takes an etched optical-grade acrylic sheet and produces the signature folds and curves while it is molten and still pliable. A metal strip containing an embedded LED is then affixed vertically to the cooled transparent sheet’s edge to diffuse the light across the etchings, amplifying the illumination. Available in a choice of 2 sizes, Han readily functions as a room accent, divider or simply a wondrous focal point.

Brand

Parachilna

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.”
