Unika Vaev | Unika Vaev, provider of fresh solutions for contract textile and acoustical needs, is pleased to announce the introduction of the Holly Acoustic Lighting Collection by Abstracta. With the Holly Acoustic Lighting Collection, Designers Hallgeir Homstvedt and Runa Klock have challenged preconceptions of how acoustic lighting should look. This builds upon the success of their most recent design for Abstracta, the Lily Lamp Collection. “An awful lot of acoustic lamps are easy to identify as acoustic products. They’re very much alike. It’s reminiscent of the early hybrid electric vehicles. You could tell right away that they were HEVs simply by their outer shape. It’s the same with acoustic lighting. Runa and I approached the concept from a different angle. Our ambition was to create a beautiful object that also happens to be really functional,” says one of the designers, Hallgeir Homstvedt. Holly awakens thoughts and associations that might soar to the Moon or the Sun. But the designers’ source of inspiration was rather more down to earth. “We were thinking of holly and its beautiful berry clusters. Our working name for it was Holly, as well,” – says designer Runa Klock. Holly is available in two versions: Vertical, which is suitable for lobbies and other high-ceiling spaces, as well as in corners for increased acoustic effect; and Horizontal which can be suspended over large tables in, for example, restaurants, bars, and workspaces. The Holly absorbers are upholstered in a 3-D-stitched mélange seamless covering (100% polyester). The fabric covering is available in three classic options. The light globe is an opaque, white opal glass that casts a beautiful, evenly distributed light.
