Behind the Scenes
Vibia has long been known for its eclectic, modern lighting—designs that don’t just illuminate a space, but often contribute to a unique overall aesthetic and function that range from sleek and simple to daring and different.
Meet Alex Fernàndez and Gonzalo Milà. These two designers have worked on several collections for Bover, a Barcelona-based leader in lighting design, bringing a fresh perspective to the craft.

But our design team is a smart bunch, and was convinced we could build on that success even further.
