Inspired by its amorphous, blob-like, shape-shifting namesake, the ‘Amoeba’ is a hanging kit-of-parts lamp constructed of intersecting organic forms – pieces that can be customized, rearranged, removed and added anew at any time without any complex tools or new parts.
It looks complete, contemporary and and unchangeable at first glance, but can be endlessly modified create all kinds of unique aesthetics and functional formations. The seems between each part are barely visible even up close.
While it certainly has a distinctive style, do not be misled: Vibia gave precise purpose to the many (seemingly abstract) modular parts of which these are made. By allowing a limited set of five modules to be combined in nearly endless ways, this lighting fixture can be adapted over time and spread out over space in different ways as user needs change and evolve. In short: it is not a one-time-only, one-size-fits-all lighting solution, but rather a flexible system with innumerable permutations.
“The Ameba Lamps present a new concept of modern hanging lamp that specifically adapts to the spaces where it’s used allowing for the creation of bespoke compositions to suit any project requirements, so that the design professional can achieve a unique and customized lighting solution. The Ameba lamp is a Pete Sans design for Vibia. The Ameba collection brings together 5 different elements that combine and fit together perfectly with one another to allow for an infinite number of compositions. Available in two finishes: matt lacquered white and graphite grey. The Ameba collection is also available as an individual fitting for private and residential use.”
