« The « Objets Lumineux » are big lamps, formed from a plywood skeleton which supports two half-shells of translucent thermoform plastic. These shells diffract the light, softening and diffusing it in all directions. There’s this idea that technology should be invisible. Electronics follows the dogma of miniaturization, and you often expect this disappearance of technological objects towards a more immaterial use. Perhaps the oversized lamps were reacting to this myth. Giving them a human scale,
