Ghan from Barcelona-based Jordi Veciana camouflages its functional versatility behind its minimalistic look. The designer’s slim silvery wonder has a multidirectional LED head so it’s ideal as a reading lamp, makes a great spotlight or can serve as indirect illumination when pointed up. The brushed stainless-steel pole with a brushed aluminium base sees a range of choices for the metal light shade—in the brushed aluminum, gleaming chrome and lacquered black or yellow.

Though based in Barcelona, Parachilna’s origins actually stretch all the way to its namesake, a desert ghost town in Australia. A random stop there years ago inspired Alfredo Valero and Roman Riera to eventually create a luxury lighting company dedicated to enduring craftsmanship, aided by European metalsmiths, glass blowers, ceramicists and other skilled artisans.
Collaborating with such notable modern designers as Jaime Hayon and Neri & Hu, partner Alfredo explains Parachilna’s purposeful process. “We don’t use industrial techniques,” he says. “Everything revolves craftsmanship, which means that there is a lot of work, from prototyping to finishing. When we say, ‘We don’t like it,’ we start all over again.”
