“Those of us who live near the Mediterranean know all the nuances of light. For this reason, when night comes, we transform it into little spacelets of day.”
– Lluís Porqueras
Bover was born in 1996 “thanks to a wonderful coincidence.” Its founder, Joana Bover, who came from the audiovisual industry, was introduced to the universe of lighting when an architect friend invited her to participate in the design of special structures made of iron for the Seville Expo ’92.
One project led to another, organically growing into one of the most prestigious lighting companies in Spain.
Bover’s design philosophy is an interweaving of contrast and order, beauty, light, culture, and elegance. These principles and attitudes express their ideas and “way of seeing and feeling the life that surrounds us.”
With this objective, Joana surrounds herself with designers who fit the brand’s philosophy.

The Nans Outdoor Collection x Joana Bover
Cala Nans is a small cove in Cadaquès accessible only by footpaths or by sea.
An unspoiled corner of the Mediterranean where the vegetation and an old lighthouse’s vigil make this place a natural spot where all you can hear are the sound of the sea and of the birds that fly over the coast.
The Nans Outdoor Collection x Joana Bover highlights the craftsmanship of the lampshades and looks for a different way of weaving by combining different colors and formats to create a true Mediterranean style.

The Circular Collection x Benedito Design
The Circular Collection is the result of the combination of design and architecture to create lights for large spaces. With this piece, Benedito Design accomplishes maximum expression with minimum materials. Circular offers great versatility with its combination of formats and finishes.
Its timeless yet contemporary design gives it character and perfectly illuminates spaces of high architectural value.
The Dome Collection x Benedetta Tagliabue
The Dome Collection x Benedetta Tagliabue acknowledges that the integration of design, art, and light in architecture is timeless. Maybe, this is the reason why lamps have gradually stopped being just an item emitting light to become a light sculpture that confers a special personality to the product and its environment.
It is such the importance of light that any change on the item can alter the formal concept of the whole project.
