at maison & objet 2015 in paris, london-based designer sarah colson presents three collections — ‘lapis lux’, ‘vitro vas’ and ‘vitro lux’. the series of lighting objects and sculptural vessels are drawn from the organic, aesthetic qualities found in the form and color of our natural surroundings.

‘vitro vas’ comprises subtly elegant, hand blown glass vases in multiple textures, layering tactile qualities together with various hues and transparencies.

the ‘vitro lux’ collection of lamps is available in soft-hued and clear glass with contrasting colored flex. designed as an individual pendent, a desk lamp and clusters in a variety of sizes, the luminaire’s additional options of personalization include cable and glass color, tailored to suit the customer’s needs.

the ‘lapis lux’ collection, revealed for the first time at maison & objet 2015, offers five new lighting examples that play with light refraction and the relationship between glass and stone. the sculptural desk lamps have heavy tactile stone bases that contrast with the delicate glass forms. soft shadows create a warm ambiance, offering a feminine elegance that enhances the beauty and simplicity of the materials.
