Tom Hancocks‘s LOOP lamp for Atelier de Troupe was inspired by the California design firm’s existing ethos, says Tom, conveying classical design, while still feeling recognizable and contemporary. ”The design process was smooth and stimulating, as I didn’t have to defer much from the continued sculptural studies of my own work – basic Euclidean point, line, and form relationships. But figuring out how to make sure it expressed the same functionality and personality of the other pieces it would be presented with. And most importantly, creating something I would want in my own living space.

Based in Los Angeles, Atelier de Troupe is a creative studio founded by former film-set designer Gabriel Abraham. Since 2011, he has summarized the imaginary décor of the 20th century, creating lamps and furniture with an immediately evocative power.  Atelier de Troupe conceives modern antiques with timeless charm, diving into the grammar of Bauhaus, of 60s Italian cinema or of French decorative spirit.

The Globe Series by Emil Thorup for Handvark was inspired by the Bauhaus movement, where form follows function and The Globe Series embraces every element in a lighting fixture. Where many other designs go to great lengths to hide the electrical cord, the cords are a piece of the design, adding a much anticipated organic and feminine touch to the black coated steel frame and the balancing mouth blown grey glass globes. As a family of both a chandelier and floor lamp, the Globe Series is a versatile lighting series for both residential and commercial use. Lire la suite…
