joran briand, etienne vallet and arthur de chatelperron make up the french firm trust in design.

‘climbing lamp’ comes in a kit. consisting of mobile joints it adapts itself to the constraints of a particular space.
it climbs on walls and ceilings and can be assembled to user needs. once fixed, each fluorescent slide is
directional, providing comfortable lighting.

this lighting system reflects the architecture of neuron systems. as with neurons, each light is connected to
another by aluminium tip. they together create a luminous sky of multiple levels. one can thus manipulate
the lighting combinations according to the space.
