How Bover Lighting Was Founded
Bover Lighting came to life out of a napkin sketch made by Spanish designer Joanna Bover in 1996. The original lamp sketch led to a successful collaboration with an architect friend that eventually led to Bover’s famed reputation as a visionary in modern Spanish lighting design. Based in Barcelona, Bover Lighting continues to maintain all production at its facilities there and incorporates local culture and ingenuity in its designs. Its team of award-winning designers pushes the envelope by creating lighting solutions that blend global design influences with timeless Mediterranean style.
The Aesthetics of Bover Lighting
Bover Lighting designs are known for their clean lines, elegant use of materials, and modern romanticism that translate quintessential Spanish ambiance into global appeal. The company also makes it a mission that each design be timeless and that every product can adapt to the future. They distill the essence of fine Spanish design in their lighting solutions with threads of international flair.
Manufactured in Barcelona, each lighting fixture is a masterful work of art, often using handcrafted local materials with a deep sense of European design aesthetic. From inspiration in the natural world to architectural elements, their award-winning designs are a reflection of the modern era and include hand-woven ribbon and wicker style shades.
Bover Lighting Favorites
The Fora Collection is a versatile and beautiful collection of lighting fixtures durable enough for outdoor weather conditions and soft enough for indoor spaces. Their wicker style woven shades surround globe light sources to provide soft illumination and the sultry air of Barcelona outdoor living.
The Mei Collection combines Asian themes with artisan hand-woven ribbon to create unique and delicate lampshades that provide warm-hued and direct lighting. Structural elements of the fixtures are concealed with the shade to provide a seamless and light feel, available in a variety of colors and shapes.
The Garota Collection debuted in 2015 as the work of Spanish designers Alex Fernandez Camps and Gonzalo Mila. Inspired by the unique silhouette of marine sea urchins, the collection highlights the use of hand-woven lampshades in natural shades ideal for outdoor environments. Whether choosing a Garota outdoor floor lamp or hanging pendant, these designs instantly transport a bit of the Mediterranean coast with them.
