A story always needs a space
And the space is created by the light. So, if there is no light, there is no space, there is no story.
At barrier, we are searching for the connection between the light and the story.
We collect different objects designed for different purposes, used in different spaces by different people in the past. We redesign them, we reinvent them. We make them alive once again to create light, to create new spaces, to create new stories.
Our intention is not creating only a design object which gives light. We are trying to combine different segments of history, different memories, good or bad things with the harmony created by the light.
Sometimes it’s a piece of wood taken from a old railroad; sometimes it’s the oil filter of an old car. The fragments of different lives, human stories lived in different times.
We appreciate the past of these materials. With a modern perspective of aesthetics we redesign them into lighting objects. So, these reborn materials can make the spaces where people live beautiful once again. But this time with the power of light.
We believe in creating spaces by the power of light. Spaces where people live, work or have fun. Living spaces…
We appreciate the aesthetics of the past. We want to be a part of the aesthetics of the future.
At barrier, we are creating living spaces with living objects of light. We are working to be a part of aesthetics in history.
