The Vella Story

The new Vella series is a dynamic family of luminaires designed to be completely adjustable via two independently swiveling louvers, inviting the user to sculpt light and shadow. Vella’s sweeping curved aluminum form subtly captures and releases light from within to wash wall and floor, creating just the right mood in any room. The lamp employs state-of-the-art, warm-white LED technology, with full range dimming capabilities. Both sophisticated and playful, Vella is suited to perfectly complement all indoor environments.
