The poetic lamps of Well Well Designers
During the last Maison & Objet fair, we had the chance to meet the people from Well Well Designers. A young design studio based in Paris and established by Héloïse Piraud and Antoine Bécognée in 2012. Most of their lamps are hand-made, playful, and created to catch the spectator’s imagination.
CLOUD CITY N° 1
The suspension light Cloud City originates from a process centered on paper. The latter is cut, incised, and folded in order to create an assemblage of geometric shapes and counter-shapes. On each one of these, a specific graphic is applied. Traveling through each of the paper’s volumes, the light creates different degrees of transparency.
The table lamp Monumento is the free-standing version of the Cloud City, cut and folded in the same way. Paper lampshade. Lacquered wood base.
The Pop-up corner light is delivered in an envelope. The lamp is constructed from a sheet of tinted cardboard. The paper is cut and incised, in such a way to produce a square, triangular or circular module when folded at a 90° angle. Intended for the corner of a room, the lamp creates a luminous shape, interacting with the architecture.
