Roman Riera and Alfredo Valero wanted to do something new and different in designer lighting. The two met at the company Riera's grandfather founded and found they had a similar weariness with much of the design world. They longed to be excited by design again, to feel challenged by it--and so they decided to be the change they wished to see in the world.
Travelling to experience the fundamentals of design and craftsmanship first-hand, they sought inspiration in local design cultures all over the world. During these travels, they found themselves stranded in a ghost town in the Australian outback called "Parachilna." Riera and Valero saw a metaphor in their predicament, sitting on the dilapidated station platform in the forgotten town: they were disconnected from all the rest of the world, experiencing beauty that most of that world had forgotten. Connecting the world of lighting design with the breathtaking starry vista above them, they knew what to call their new brand.
Working in collaboration with designers from around the world, Parachilna prides itself on producing luxurious and meaningful designs that challenge expectations to escape the status quo.
