Big Ceiling Light
Note: This product is no longer available.
Design by Jannette Altherr, Alberto Lievore and Manel Molina.
Made in Spain by Vibia.
"Big is enormous, in terms of both size and innovation, revolutionizing the traditional concept of a ceiling light, up to now practical but small and unambitious."
The bowl of the Big Ceiling Light, with choice of 39" or 47" diameters, makes it an exceptional design of unique strength, able to be noticed and become a practical and decorative feature. The fixture provides a pleasant atmosphere acting like a skylight. It is the minimal expression of a light fitting - its acrylic diffuser takes up virtually all its diameter while at the same time providing exceptional light. The Big Ceiling Light is able to fit into settings which are contemporary in style and ideal for particularly high ceilings. The "skylight illusion" is further heightened when installed on a dark ceiling.
Ceiling light for diffused, ambient illumination. Acrylic diffuser with polished chrome ring. Big uses fluorescent lamping with electronic, dimmable, universal voltage ballasts. Dimming controls must be compatible. Available in two sizes.

Designer: Alberto Lievore
Born into a family of Italian immigrants in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1948, from a young age he was sensitive to design, inventing various objects and toys for himself. After completing a scientific technical education in chemistry, Lievore went on to work for an oil company. He later completed his military service and sought to further his love for design, so he began architecture at the Buenos Aires Faculty of Architecture. In 1977, he officially settled in Barcelona where he founded a studio in the Berenguer el Gran Square with colleague Norberto Chaves, and afterwards Daniel Perrando, Oriol Pibernat, and Jorge Pensi. Later, in 1984, he started his very own Alberto Lievore & Associates firm, which allowed him to learn and grow more as a designer. In 1991, he changed the name of his firm to Lievore Altherr Molina, as other designers Jeanette Altherr and Manel Molina joined the lineup. He still continues his incredible work with his firm, attaining worldwide acceptance and notability with his partners for their bold furniture designs.View other products by Alberto Lievore
