The complete renovation of a penthouse in the centre of Rome by Italian architecture firm Carola Vannini has transformed the luxurious penthouse into a light-filled aerie. The stylish design pays homage to the building’s centuries-old architectural details, while giving the interiors a thoroughly modern look. Roughly worked wooden beams and carefully crafted ceiling inlays go perfectly together here with the sleek, modern interior design and lighting elements by Vibia.
In the open kitchen with dining area, three North pendant lamps by designer Arik Levy provide optimal lighting. In the simple silhouette in deconstruction style, the luminaire base and shade are separated from each other by a dynamic system of adjustable parts.
The designers opted for luminaire shades in different sizes and heights that place the LED light circuits in bundled form exactly where they are needed. The individual luminaires are connected to each other by a network of intersecting, slender rods that create a uniform lighting system distributed throughout the room, linking the different areas.
The Wireflow chandelier, also designed by Arik Levy, hangs down from the living room ceiling at double height. The modern version of the classic chandelier consists of an assemblage of fine black cables that lead into a lower ring of light-emitting diodes.
