Parachilna is one of the last towns before entering the Australian desert north of Adelaide. And those four things are all that Parachilna has today. It's on a railway line that used to connect with the old Ghan line that crosses Australia from North (Darwin) to South (Adelaide). The Ghan was an impressive work of the time and even today is an amazing machine powerful enough to run through 3.000 km of desert. The name of the line comes from the Afghan camel drivers that were brought to Australia to help explore the unknown desert for the first time, in the 19th century.
After many years of successful highs and occasional lows in the lighting sector, we decided to create PARACHILNA. Dedicated to decorative lighting, PARACHILNA was born from our love of luxury. For us, luxury is about the integrity of the design, the quality of the materials and the artisanal craftsmanship that creates it. Preserving the skills and knowledge of the few remaining metalsmiths, glass blowers, ceramicists and other skilled craftsmen that still remain in Europe and, we hope, in other parts of the world. We trust that we will find kindred spirits in our pursuit of these skills in every city of the five continents; our passion is to work with designers from every corner of the globe.
