Samuraï Designer Lamp
The designer imagines a gallery lamp close to the art sculpture he calls Samuraï. The ceramic collection lamp is produced in 6 pieces. The designer is inspired by the helmet of the Samurai armor, the aesthetics of which he interprets in a contemporary and minimalist style. The designer’s art sculpture must be set in a bookcase at eye level so that light reflects off the interior of the tabletop fixture and transforms the black enamel into a golden sheen.
Mixing genres and eras
This collector’s light is a work of style. A pure work of design and aesthetics. The designer Clément Boutillon started from the classic shape of a Samurai helmet: inspiration he chose following an exhibition that has not left his memories during a trip to…. Venice.
However, there is no easy way for this work of art. The designer then mixes genres and creates a sculpture inspired by Science-Fiction, some speak of Dark-Vador. It is the style that inspires this reference. The lines are carefully drawn to get the modernity and timelessness necessary for the designer’s contemporary lamp.
Limited edition artwork
From the very first castings, manufacturing proved to be complicated. The first lamp is born after five attempts. The artist therefore decides that his lamp will be a very limited edition: 6 ceramics numbered and signed by the hand of the designer.
