Between object and sculpture. Bright by day, illuminating at night. The particularity of this luminaire is that it reacts to daylight (Without being connected) and becomes illuminated at night thanks to its own Led source. The pmma plates capture the daylight by the faces and restore it only by the slices. When the luminaire is plugged in, the Led source diffuses light through the slices that become wires… When one is in front of this luminaire, one feels a particular presence. It evoke a human silhouette. Standing, legs planted on the floor and arms open up.

Interview with Daniel Guillotin on Altesalux Luminaire

What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
The main idea of ​​Altesalux is to create an object that is both sculpture and lighting. An object whose shapes and contours are also drawn by light.
What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
Create a luminous sculpture. An object that has a strong presence, almost like a human silhouette, legs well planted on the ground and arms raised to the sky.
What are your future plans for this award winning design?
If this design is awarded, I hope it finds its place in the interiors of people passionate about particular objects, entirely handmade, curiosities that have their little history.
How long did it take you to design this particular concept?
This project took a year and several prototypes with a passionate work with carpenter cabinetmaker
Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?
It is a desire for creation, a passion for material and craftsmanship. The desire to create freely, without marketing constraints ... A great luxury.
Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?
I do not know yet, this project is new to me. I come from graphic design and I have not yet experience object design. I am not against the idea of ​​selling the rights to productions and moving on to new creations because that is my main motivation.
What made you design this particular type of work?
My age, my taste for freedom of artistic expression and my passion for creation
