YMER&MALTA / Oceane Delain
Ceramic, metal, LED
XS : L.10 x l.8 x H.25cm
A sculpture by day and a light sculpture by night, Belle de Nuit combines the delicacy of the thin metal bars and the bisque volumes to the practical and modern lighting technology of a battery powered lamp.
The choice of materials was crucial to achieve the soft and natural candle light effect with a source in led. The texture of the ceramic gives to each lamp its singularity.
Belle de Nuit family consists of four different sizes, XS, S, M and L and two bisque textures, smooth or striped, the last one resulted from the 3D printed prototype.
