Mathematical lighting

By Brian Gallagher 28.10.16

Algorithm is an award winning collection of pendant light fittings featuring blown glass spheres with LED diffusers designed by Noan Nguyen for Vibia the Spanish lighting company based in Prat de Llobregat, outside Barcelona. In reality Algorithm is a kit of parts thta allows designers, archietcs and users to create their own unique lighting installations for customising projects. 

Algorithm of a kit of parts that allow designers to create bespoke lighting installations for individual projects. Each of the composite elements is exquisitely resolved; the tubular steel lattice structure that supports the fitting, the vertical metal rods, the striated blown glass sphere diffusers and suspended electrical cables. “The intention was not to design a completely defined and ‘finished’ product, but a tool which allows any customer to create his own lighting system, in relation with the architecture space, the area to light and the desired kind of ‘graphic pattern,” says designer Toan Nguyen.
