Vertigo Bird transforms ordinary and archetypical forms into unpredictable and engaging new designs, offering a new choice and putting a new spin on products. It works to produce quality, flexible, and energy efficient products and solutions.
Vertigo Bird was founded and is run today by Silvo Kacar, also founder of Arcadia Lightware, one of Slovenia’s most successful lighting companies, and the owner of fixtures producer Sijaj Hrastnik, where the idea for Vertigo Bird was born. With years of experience in the sales, planning and implementation of lighting solutions, Silvo knows the problems and the needs of the lighting business well. Vertigo Bird is the result of his dreams, passions, creative inspiration and ideas toward the ongoing development of quality, timeless products. Today Vertigo Bird operates as an innovative, independent company with its headquarters in Ljubljana.
Inspiration for the luminaire Babel, designed by Fabien Dumas for Vertigo bird came from the biblical story about the Tower of Babel. You can turn every single shade and when you do, the shape and angle of the light changes.
The lamp’s design owes its form to the funnel, a highly typical household object, something all our grandmothers used in their kitchens, bottling and decanting wine, olive oil and similar throughout their lifetimes.
Lamps from the Sax family represent an alternative to all surface-mounted downlighters. Its 26 different variations cover the entire spectrum of lighting-design requirements. The choice of different light sources means that this model also boasts a wide range of applications, following the latest trends in energy efficiency.
