paul coudamy: airbus window lighting

‘F-light’ by paul coudamy all photos by benjamin boccas

french designer paul coudamy has taken airbus windows and recycled them to create a modular lighting concept. the ‘F-light’ is constructed from the walls / windows cabin of an airbus A300, whereby the engineered curves, windows and insulation of the airplane takes on a second life as a functional lighting structure. designed for flown mobilier airline, the result is a luminous ceiling that forms a dome-like shell. modularity of the system, allows the panels to be put together according to one’s desired size. each window is outfitted with light halos which provides a diffuse and even luminosity over the entire object’s surface. a second indirect lighting mounted on the structure is reflected by the original silver insulation.
