Martín Azúa fuses material with light in his unique design of Halo Wall for VIBIA. In this 2020 evolution of an applique, Halo Wall provides a series of minimalist light sculptures that create a suggestive ambient lighting, which floats over the wall surface while at the same time bathing it with light. The basic unit of Halo Wall is a light rod that measures a metre in length and with its slim-line linearity, different graphic compositions are outlined and can be customised. The light bars, supported by an aluminium profile, can rotate to form parallel, perpendicular and inclined axes. Their modular nature will allow for large configurations to form light murals.
With its double methacrylate diffuser, the lamp generates an attenuated light in which the LED technology disappears. The material becomes transformed into an emerging light in a seemingly magical fashion. Martín Azúa’s design manifests as a new lighting system that surprises and invokes an impactful aesthetic experience. Its expression recalls the minimalist artistic movement prevalent during the radical 1960s, an era that made such an impact on furniture design and relevant interior design projects. And which remains popular till this day.
Halo Wall provides a general ambient lighting but can also function as a reading light when placed close to sofas and armchairs. The compositions made possible through multiple units create multi-faceted light murals that are ideal for public and semi-public spaces. Or for corporations, cultural institutions and the hostelry sector.
The collection that immediately preceded this one – Halo Lineal – was awarded Best of Year Award by Interior Design Magazine – USA in 2015.
