dominique perrault adds signature mesh to in the tube lamp collection

 

designed by french architect dominique perrault in collaboration with gaëlle lauriot-prévost, the ‘in the tube’ lamp is their way of bringing the architectural into the domestic. manufactured by DCW éditions, the concept was based on different objectives that include it being original, almost indescribable, nearly unbreakable, timeless and completely durable. the lamp collection comes in several lengths, diameters, and colors, and it is made of borosilicate glass and closed with aluminium stoppers sealed in silicon.

‘the domestic interior is these days constantly being penetrated by the industrial, which in turn has long since lost its aura of being something nasty and noisy, separate to the rest of the world. nowadays it is normal to make use of these components which fit naturally into the world of design,’ comments dominique perrault on the use of industrial materials for the interiors.

the ‘in the tube’ lamp collection comprises strong ideas and forms that are free and constrained. showcasing perrault’s inclination for meshes, the lighting object diffuses a soft, filtered light that can be oriented by the movable mesh filter or by a reflector whose color determines the light given off. with mountings made of stainless-steel, the lamps can be suspended or wall and ceiling-mount.
