above is 'tidelight', a glass and cork table lamp by paris designer pierre favresse, part of the inaugural collection by the new french design company petite friture.
This table lamp plays with diffraction, with a design that draws its inspiration from the techniques and codes used in the car industry. By its texture and shape, Tidelight increases diffusion.
there are four pieces in the collection, my favourties being the lamp, and the 'grandissant' modular candlesticks (below) by jean-charles amey. they are both very simple designs, with a lovely choice of materials.
sorry [again] for the sever lack of posts recently. hopefully this will be rectified soon!
