BELLE D'I EMPREINTE | Wall lamp
Luc Vincent, Hind Rabii
When BELLE D'I is switch off, just a shadow, its visual references evolve. Its contours alone are magnified and the presence of the oak is the conch that separates them from the immaterial. It can be placed down like a lantern or fixed to a wall or partition with a full cut-out / half-joint.
Choose between the style of a wooden cave or transparency, which casts a particular lighting effect over the mounting surface. These contrasts between material and light are conducive to exterior or interior use as the wood releases a nuanced warmth.
BELLE D’I EMPREINTE also plays on thick, sliced steel. Spatially, the thick sheet metal seems lean and sharp, sublime in relation to the BELLE D'I COCODRILLO which develops its diamond shape, shimmering with flecks of light. Choosing between oak or steel, the choice of location, of either placing or hanging.....nothing more.
