Vibia Presents Stories Behind The Flat Collection

Created by renowned Japanese designer Ichiro Iwasaki for Vibia, the Flat collection features distinctive, disc-shaped diffusers that form horizontal planes of light. The flat metal plates reflect light off their surfaces, casting an enveloping, wraparound glow that appears illuminated from within.

Stories Behind: The Flat Collection

The innovative lamps convey the signature aesthetic of Iwasaki, known for his minimalist and abstract style. Flat’s sculptural spheres and lean proportions co-mingle in perfect equipoise, a unique expression of metal.

“It creates a rhythmic and comfortable landscape.”

Iwasaki’s mission was a modern interpretation of the classic reflector disc, which he realized in the fixture’s striking, static silhouette. A study in geometry, the design easily integrates with surrounding architecture and generating layers of light and a graphic presence.

The contrast between a bold linear framework and its svelte discs produces a compelling structural cadence. “Dotted on the ceiling, floor, and tabletop, it looks like letters of the alphabet or a line of musical notes,” Iwasaki explains.
