Simple & Smart: Lighting by Vertigo Bird


Late last year we had the pleasure of teaming up with Design Studio Nu once more to shoot a line of contemporary lighting from the Slovenian label Vertigo Bird for their website and social platforms. As always, the girls at Nu took the lead in terms of concept and styling, choosing their new warehouse studio space as the location for the shoot with routed concrete walls and an industrial quality that was hard not to love. It was a fun project that we are excited to share with you today!

Vertigo Bird is a young lighting design house based out of Ljubljana, Slovenia, offering quality, timeless and energy efficient lighting. It was founded by Silvo Kacar of Arcadia Lightware – one of Slovenia’s most successful lighting companies. Silvo had seen the work that we had done previously (here and here) for the furniture label Rex Kralj and wanted to get their ‘simple and smart’ line of lights behind our lens too, starting with their newest products, the KAT flush mount ceiling lamp, the DEMIJOHN pendant with it’s warm wood edging, the cute and practical CONCIERGE wall mounted night light, and the FUNNEL pendant.

We are loving the minimalistic styling against those beautifully textured walls, what about you? And which is your favourite light? You can see more about this project here.

We absolutely love teaming up with creative labels from all over the world and creating beautiful images that spotlight their products. Just last year we were in Greece shooting African furniture (catch that post here)!

  1. Oh, so beautiful! I’m ashamed that I did’t know about these lights and I’m from Slovenia. I love the ‘white & wood’ pendant light and the ceiling one. And I love the textured wall – the lights looks perfect in front of it! Now I really have to check the Vertigo Bird…

  2. This is beautiful. I really liked this. Thanks for sharing.

  3. These lighting solutions sound great! I’m definitely going to try them sometime. Thanks for posting!
