Spanish brand Vibia collaborated with Note Design Studio to create the Chromatica Musa lamp collection. Musa was created by Note Design Studio after experimenting with several paper models that finally gave birth to its unique lighting and organic form. Vibia then elevated the lamp with Chromatica – a visual tool that takes in 23 curated colors chosen for their suitability in today’s architectural and design landscape.
The lamp has a minimal and elegant design that shows the small hand-blown opal glass sphere being cradled by the aluminum dish which also illuminates the light in its own delicate way. Originally designed as a table lamp, there is also a portable model with its own battery lending it complete autonomy. Note Design Studio created a whole wall of Musa lamps which was nothing less than an art installation.
Vibia’s Chromatica color scale was influenced by the harmony among architectural building materials and how the perfect symphony of these elements creates spaces that leave an impact. The color scale ranges from vivid accents to tonal base colors and measured middle strength hues, it was created to be a spectrum of visual triggers for future environments.
Chromatica merges the best of inspiration and tactile material experience. Using the highly curated 23 colours and their segregated pallets, the tool creates a visual mind-map of lamps for the designers to follow, interact and experiment with to yield bold results that will help them redefine existing boundaries. Every designer or architect will agree that the perfect mix of color, light, and material is the formula to make a space timeless and original. The Chromatica is a tool that marries inspiration to materials, it reflects the visual ambition of today’s architects to make iconic impressions while the Musa lamp is the ideal subject to use it on – minimal and modern, the future of space design.
