job smeets of studio job on the ‘tour eiffel’ lamp:
while having a summer lunch with loic and julien of carpenter’s on the top of centre pompidou I had this amazing view of the tour eiffel and dreamt about
my bohemian life in paris back in the nineties. you know, when the world was young and tour eiffel was my best friend and close neighbour. anyway, somewhere between entrée and main the guys commissioned a lamp. one thing lead to another!

an inverted to-scale model of the taj mahal is the focus of this table made from bronze, which is supported by four minarets which speak of the same ones which frame the tomb of the actual indian landmark.
