studio brichetziegler‘s ‘under the skin’ lamps evoke the metamorphosis of an animal. each handmade piece is composed of a polyurethane textile sandwich that is stiffened by a layer of bamboo cardboard; cut from a pattern, folded into shape and supported by a simple lacquered metal structure. the metallic finish of the paper material offers a silky and changeable skin that reveals the internal copper-colored brightness when it is turned on. the ‘under the skin’ lamp is available in a floor (H70 x W30 x D25 cm) and table version, and has been especially designed for the ‘favoris’ exhibition (september 3-6, 2015) and auction (september 5th), curated by french company moustache during maison et objet / paris design week 2015 at studio cassiopée / 11 rue des arquebusiers 75003 paris.
