"Lampes", experimenting with light

«LAMPES» is the result of reflexions, experimentations, research around the light topic.
How can light be revealed, appear, fade. What does light say, mean or represent.
The result is a family of three lamps / light installation, showcased in Paris, on april, the 27th & 28th at «Espace Pecquay».


Among the three lamps, there is «Lampe brume» where light is captured by mist. The light comes to life through this natural reflector, although it is informal and impalpable.
The peaceful agitation of water becoming mist is set as a chemistry experiment and brings a lively and sweet light at home.
At the bottom of the vase made out borosilicate doublewall glass, a nebulizer system turns water into mist.

Then, «Paysage transparent» is a lamp fully made of PMMA, using the “Lumisheet” technology as lighting surface :
Turned off, PMMA slabs are completely transparent.
When switched on, the bumps of micro-machined thread catch the light coming from the LEDs on the edge of the panels.
A geometric landscape rises from the panels, as if they were lying on a giant rock.

The last lamp, «Soleils», sets two «suns» on a ring that rotate at a 24hours rhythm.
At 00:01, the two spotlights are at the bottom left of the base. They diffuse a slightly red-tinted light, like a sun at dawn.
Through the day, light gets whiter and reaches its «zenith» at midday.
As the days gets closer to the evening, the light turns progressively to a light orange.
The spotlights end their cycle at 23:59 and go back to their initial position.
And so on...

A soundtrack of the exhibition has also been composed by the designer, as part of the scenorgraphy. It has been thought in 3 tracks, working independently and as a «ensemble» : Each track facing its lamp, as a sonic companion.
You can ear the track here :

These three lamps are self-produced and sold on request on designer’s website.
