The Skin Pendant

One of our most popular fixtures for hospitality environments, the Skin pendant, ranges in size from miniature to mammoth. The Skin’s cylindrical body is made of satin white thermoplastic, which is lit to a stunning glow by fluorescent tubes. Its outer shell is a cage of stainless steel mesh that is lacquered in steel or bronze finishes. Designed by architectural firm AIA Salazar-Navarro, it is perfect for grouping in height-varying displays. The Skin is included in our ECCO Collection of Performance-Driven Office + Retail Lighting. ECCO, an acronym for [E]nergy-efficient, [C]ompliant for [C]ommercial [O]rnamentation, is a collection of light fixtures built to enhance the architectural attributes of commercial, office or retail settings.

Designer

Though it would be easy for those of us in the United States to think the “AIA” in this firm’s name stands for the American Institute of Architects, this is far from the case. The Salazar/Navarro team dubbed their multidisciplinary practice “Activitats Installacions Arquitectòniques,” or AIA for short (translated it means Architectural Activities Facilities), because they are a thriving group of designers carrying out myriad activities in the process of designing buildings, projects and products. The office employs architects, product and industrial designers, and engineers, making the team located in their Barcelona headquarters well-versed in solution-oriented thinking.

Known for sustainable ideas, cutting-edge technology and efficiency, innovation is often connected with their name. Tapped by Basque lighting manufacturer Grupo B.lux to design a number of their products, AIA Salazar-Navarro has collaborated with a number of the biggest names in architecture, including Dominique Perrault, who designed the D-123 building in Barcelona.
