Unique, confusing, industrial, rococo and captivating design… Decoration is not a disembodied art : each object is born from the spirit of a creator. Each product tells a story of its own. In short, no shape is due to chance.
Like Little Princes of good taste, connected to trends and jumping from planets to creative planets, we have compiled our best finds for you.
In this series, we shed new light on exceptional lighting. And the light was… designed. #FiatLux
1. Patera, indoor sun
Patera is a hypnotic luminous sphere, thought and designed byr Øivind Slaatto for the Louis Poulsen brand. Originally from Denmark, this designer stood out for his simple and poetic solutions.
His source of inspiration ? Nature. Logic, harmony and geometry inhabit his designs and color his style in an unexpected way.
Patera’s sphere is made up of small diamond-shaped alveoli, carefully designed to capture light and return it gracefully.
Thus, each cell blazes and fills with a soft and progressive luminous intensity. Below 45 degrees, the diffusers are open to direct it down. A small amount of light is also returned upwards to illuminate the ceiling.
In short, Patera is a designated sun for your interior.
2. Into the Wind, the design of the valley of the wind
Into the Wind was born from the meeting of an ancestral East and a pioneering West. A design planet UFO designed for Artelux by Arihiro Miyake, creative genius who forged his style between Japan and Finland.
This suspension floor lamp surprises as much as the journey of its designer. With simplicity and sophistication, the object pushes back the technological challenges imposed by light. The LED lighting unfolds its gentle intensity over 360 °.
The heads and arms are painted white, titanium gray or gold. It can be hung horizontally or vertically to magnify any surface. In search of the perfect aesthetic, Arihiro Miyake has found with Into the Wind, a fresh creative response free from all standards.
Ready to surrender in the clear morning wind ?
3. Concrete bollard, like an aria from Corbusier
Le Corbusier is a sacred monster that needs no introduction. Master architect of the Cité Radieuse, his work was not limited to urban plans or sleek buildings. The man has also cast his innovative gaze on many interiors.
Designer and visual artist with an authentic style, Le Corbusier had drawn up to the lamps of the Cité Radieuse. The concrete bollard, designed in 1952 for Artelux , is a tribute to its main loves: reinforced concrete, its material of choice, is associated with simple geometric shapes, legible and without exuberance.
It is a table lamp, on the floor or on a table, which can be integrated into any interior such as terraces and gardens. Its composition makes it resistant and durable. 65 years after its creation, a smaller version of the Borne Béton appeared. Perfect for a nightstand, desk or bookshelf.
The dimmer present in its cable allows you to create rich and subtle atmospheres. The lamp is available in halogen and LED version. Practicality that combines with aesthetics…
Not all works of art can be found in a museum… The proof is : our three lights take you on a delicate and original journey to the land of design.
