A voluptuous design, a Venetian hand-blown glass shade unites with a weighted marble column, supported by an industrially engineered aluminium arm. Forming a beautiful balance between opposing materials, textures and shapes, the enduring contemporary classic design is a longlasting addition to the modern home. Symbolising the same strength and comforting warmth as a lighthouse towering above the sea, the impressive table lamp stands tall, elegant and bright wherever it is placed.
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, the Breton-born brothers, are the stars of European design and the most promising industrial designers to have emerged from France since Philippe Starck in the 1980s.
A combination of romanticism and functionality runs throughout both brothers’ work. Like all truly talented designers, the Bouroullecs have defined a distinctive visual style, which Jasper Morrison (one of the designers they most admire) described as “thoughtful and disciplined, with a real spirit and poetry”.
