Maison & Objet Exhibition:
Trend and Inspiration

Curated by Francois Bernard

September 7 - 11, 2012


L.U.M Lamp is featured in Maison and Objet's special exhibition in Paris


Now is the time for a simple timelessness that is nevertheless rich in emotions and sensations. Geometrical, archetypal, molecular or abstract forms are referencing elements like water, earth, fire and air. Design is drawing inspiration from meteorology and climatology to invent new expressions of today;s atmosphere. Between lightness and weightiness, power and transparency, force and fluidity, a new generation of objects is inviting us to dream.
