Inspired by Vertigo Bird

Vertigo Ptak is a contemporary Slovenian lighting brand established in 2008. Since its launch, the company has worked extensively with both Slovenian and international designers and architects to build a diverse and attractive lighting collection that fills the niche between mere exclusive lighting design and daily standardization. Also suitable as a soft, individual design element for larger architectural lighting systems.

Vertigo Bird feeds on the development of timeless designs suitable for any architectural context, both for residential and commercial applications. It works to produce high-quality, flexible and energy-efficient products and solutions. Its growing collection offers a range of custom-made selections based on individual preferences and style requirements. Vertigo Bird transforms ordinary and archetypal forms into unpredictable and engaging new patterns.

The brand Vertigo Bird was born in the mining and blown glass region of central Slovenia. Traditional miner wisdom says, "You must go deep to reach high" will echo in the original brand design statement. The company returned its mission respecting local resources and know-how, but was determined to overcome its limitations. Traditional skill and craftsmanship meets innovative technology and intelligent brand management. The interesting brand name finds its roots in the Slovenian collective artists En Knap. Vertigo Bird is actually the name of a film created by the dancer and choreographer Iztok Kovač together with the film director Sašo Podgoršek. The film's pinnacle dance performance takes place in a mine and continues in high dizziness through the chimney of the local power plant. Likewise, the skin of the Vertigo Bird brand neither its roots nor its high ambitions to become a truly global brand of personalized lighting.

Vertigo Ptak was founded and is currently run by Silvo Kačar, also founder of Arcadia Lightware, one of the most successful lighting companies in Slovenia and owner of the luminaire manufacturer Sijaj Hrastnik, where the idea for Vertigo Bird was born. With many years of experience in sales, planning and implementation of lighting solutions, Silvo knows the problems and needs of the lighting industry well. Vertigo Ptak is the result of his dreams, passion, creative inspiration and ideas towards the further development of quality, timeless products. Today, Vertigo Ptak operates as an innovative, independent company based in Ljubljana.

Vertigo Ptak works in close cooperation with various Slovenian and foreign designers, combining the business experience and talents of famous designers with the creative energy and originality of a young group of emerging designers. The result is a lighting collection that lives up to the basic idea by combining passion, inspiration and creativity with functionality, quality and timelessness.
