Lighting as Art

Serge Mouille – A French Icon

“Serge Mouille made each of his lamps by hand and never used machine technology to maximize production numbers.” “A Serge Mouille lamp is as much a work of art as it is a source of illumination.”

Alison Berger Glassworks

Alison Berger is an artist whose medium is light and whose material is glass. Whether designing light fixtures, objects, furnishings or large-scale sculptures, she uses age-old glass blowing techniques to create glass forms that transcend time and capture light. Derived from historic forms that have been stripped down to their essence, her work feels simultaneously old world and modern.

Description from Daniel Becker:

Sparks attempts to freeze a fleeting moment and record it emotionally. The light appearance of a split second is compressed and duplicated volumetrically.

Technically, it is a modular lighting system which consists of three different modules made of aluminium tubes. They can be arranged with a simple plug-in system in various configurations to form a three-dimensional structure. Every module can be rotated freely in 360° which makes the whole system easily adaptable to every possible architectural situation. There are virtually no limits in the size. The lighting elements are based on low-energy LED modules which are hidden behind cones made of frosted acrylic glass.
