22/02/2018 - On the occasion of the next edition of Light+Building, Vibia presents the new lamps for the living and contract areas. Among these Guise, the collection designed byStefan Diez, winner of the German Design Award 2018.

With Guise Stefan Diez has discovered a new potential use of the LED technology in contact with matter: The light comes out of the piece of glass, while the source remains invisible. With this approach Guise achieves a magical effect and, at the same time, is fully functional. Because of the transparency of the glass, when switched offthe lamp almost disappears. When switched on it expresses a luminous and almost magnetic presence.
 
A pattern of engraved incisions made in the borosilicate glass, created using a robotic cutting technique, refracts, radiates and reflects the light brilliantly. The Led source is located longitudinally as if it were a seam, almost imperceptible.

Stefan Diez was inspired by several traditional techniques, Bohemian glass cutting and luminous street signs which are combined here in a unique contemporary vision. Together with its innovative technology Guise achieves an almost virtual light.
 
Guise includes a sensor that allows its intensity to be dimmed simply by bringing one’s hand close to the light, without the need for a switch, or even direct contact.

The collection includes pendant lamps, both vertical and horizontal, that allow them to be placed over dining tables, offices or sitting rooms and circulation areas, with single fittings or multiple configurations. The wall sconce version with a different formal expression features a glass disk that gives off a perimeter glow where the Led light source is also hidden. When turned off it becomes fused with its background, when on it evokes a solar eclipse. Guise was awarded with the 2018 German Design Award for its innovative design.
