ABOUT THE BRAND
– Parachilna is a small tribute to faith and passion.
After many years of successful highs and occasional lows in the lighting sector, we decided to create PARACHILNA. Dedicated to decorative lighting, PARACHILNA was born from our love of luxury. For us, luxury is about the integrity of the design, the quality of the materials and the artisanal craftsmanship that creates it. Preserving the skills and knowledge of the few remaining metalsmiths, glass blowers, ceramicists and other skilled craftsmen that still remain in Europe and, we hope, in other parts of the world.
We trust that we will find kindred spirits in our pursuit of these skills in every city of the five continents; our passion is to work with designers from every corner of the globe.
Named after a one-horse desert town 500kms from Adelaide, Parachilna was launched at Milan Design Week in 2014 with an enviable collection of lamps, by an equally enviable trio of designers: Jordi Veciana, Stephen Burks and superstar Jaime Hayon. The response from the design community was instant; Parachilna was a studio to watch out for.
For the first collection, each designer brought their unique signature to the forms they designed: Hayon’s curvaceous range utilises Venetian ceramics, with glass and brass.
Aballs features a pendant and walls lamps, a table lamp and a grand chandelier. While his glossy ceramic Chinoz table lamp is inspired by Chinese ginger pots. Veciana created the Alistair range for Parachilna using a glass cylinder wrapped around a fine metal frame in brass or graphite electroplated steel. And Burke used three geometric forms: the sphere, saucer and cigar to create the Anwar collection in woven wire and finished in black, copper, or golden electroplating.
Since then, Parachilna is well on the way to becoming one of the great European lighting studios.
