Light according to Bover
01/03/2016 - Bover brings its interpretation of light in Frankfurt during Light + Building 2016

The integration of design, art and light in architecture dates back to a long time ago, and maybe this is the reason why lamps have gradually stop being just an item emitting light to become a light sculpture which confers a special personality to the product and its environment. It is such the importance of light that any change on the item can alter the formal concept of the whole project. A sculpture may seem more or less static, depending on the light received.
 
With DOME, Bover decided to take the light out of the object so it becomes a light sculpture designed to receive and emit a delicate light, a play of shadows and nuances that enrich the space for which they were created. Developing this project with Benedetta has allowed them to re'ect on the art of lighting, on how to reinterpret light and on the creation of products with a more artistic approach and a less industrial look.

It has also allowed them to be swept away and do what they really like to do. These light sculptures are completely handmade and they are entirely produced in the Bover Barcelona HQ. More than 170 big and small wood fragments are wisely intertwined and sewed one by one to end up in such a jigsaw puzzle.
 
GAROTA is a tribute to the Sea urchins, commonly found in the Mediterranean coasts. Bover all have sometime hold the naked shell of a sea hedgehog and admire its outlined body. The elliptical shapes made in polyethylene are an essential part of the Bover outdoor collections because they protect the light source from rainand humidity.

These globes are the focus of the Bover outdoor products because they offer a warm and clear light, surrounded by organic, rounded and delicate shapes, designed to be equally installed indoors or outdoors and create a surrounding comfort.
 
MARIETTA is an outstanding interpretation of the classical industrial lights installed in most of the warehouses and factories in Europe during the beginning of Century XX. In Bover they took the decision of going through this classical and functional lighting model and make it into a warm, contemporary and decorative object, which is able to adapt to any environment and live together with other products more purist and with less presence.

After studying it, they decided to keep the aluminum cone as the original one, also with the metal ring on it, showing discreetly the nature of the luminaire. The handmade ribboned shades make this piece a special and unique one. MARIETTA collection consists of Big Format lights designed both for corporate and commercial spaces, for the restaurant industry and indoor spaces. MARIETTA includes a polycarbonate bottom diffuser and is available in dimmable version.
 
One of the most distinctive signs from Vietnam is the hat used by women in the countryside to protect themselves from the sun and the rain and as a basket to carry food. NÓN LÁ is the name used to describe this Vietnamese hat and it is also the name they selected for this lamp. This is the way they pay homage to its shape and centenary culture.

The simplicity of this cone-shaped lamp, offers a lightweight and resistant structure with an avant-garde touch thanks to the decentralized light cavity. The lamp’s hood is made out of aluminium and then platted or lacquered. The cast iron base of the lamp is angle shaped, which makes it look more rude, in contrast to its subtle cone-shaped shade. Nón Lá 'lls the space with direct bottom light and includes a polycarbonate diffuser which hosts a dimming own-made led plate. The Nón Lá family consists of pendant, table and wall light versions.

TIBETA is a family of pendant lights made of a spun aluminum body. It is available in three different sizes and shapes which can be used either individually or in groups of three or more units according to client’s needs. Tibeta includes a led module inside, which provides direct bottom light.

TRIA is a wall light designed as a modular system made with led plates, which makes it easy to build up linear light panels connected to each other by an inside structure. The TRIA frontal parts are made in white lacquer or natural oak and they can be slightly moved to offer a suggestive play of light and shadow around the organic shape of the diffuser. TRIA can be installed either as a single wall light or as a light module with a sole connection point on the wall, which makes it easier to be installed in halls, of'ce walls and hotel reception desks and lobbies.
