sous mon arbre by florian brillet for ligne roset

approached by ligne roset to design a garden lamp, florian brillet created a portable version which can easily be hung on tree branches. ‘the choice of portable lamp is quite pragmatic as it is the most adaptable to all situations. it can be hung, held or moved to where it is required. ‘sous mon arbre’ is an invitation to dine outside, an object conducive to conviviality,’ says brillet. there are two distinct parts to the lamp: the lacquered aluminum sides of the piece which are at a slight angle, allowing the diffuser to emerge so that it may be placed on the ground; and a handle that is made from unfinished wood, which references its form from the handles of work tools. its black neoprene cable is five meters long which enables one to move it with ease — this solution more sustainable than using a battery. a simple object without any electronics or maintenance and a longer life span, the lighting pieces will be shown during milan design week 2013.
