‘my bike’ is a grandiose 72 bulb chandelier installed within paris’ concept design store merci until february 18th, 2012. conceived by british designer tom dixon, the technical and formal aspects of the sculptural lighting piece are derived from the engineered efficiency of a standard bicycle wheel, whereby the bulbs are arranged around a large spoke-like structure. measuring three metres in diameter, the installation is tilted at an angle, offering visitors a view of the piece from two floors, the light cascading across the floor.

  • Merde alors, moi je suis toujours baba de réaliser que s’il y a encore des gens qui parviennent à exposer chez “MERCI”, c’est soit qu’ils ont réparé leur informatique, soit appris à répondre au courrier, soit enfin trouvé des chefs de produits un peu mieux éduqués – ce ne serait pas dommage 🙁
