The sinuous line of the body of the Mesmeri wall lamp envelops and masks the light source, almost magically emitting a soft beam of light upwards.
The body of the lamp is in lacquered or chromed cast aluminium.
Eric Solè is a French designer who has a knack for making simplicity eye catching and throughout his career has established a variety of futuristic looking pieces for, amongst others, lighting company Artemide. The gentle curves of the Mesmeri Wall Light displays Solè's ability to give hard metal a soft and tactile appearance
"My first projects were more focused on technical research on the principles of transformation, folding chairs, office lamp or use of materials for exploiting their structural properties as the Rollmob for Megalit. My interest in lighting design is currently using the continuous evolution of the raw material availability. More than new materials there is above all the appearance of permanent sources of shapes and sizes of different techniques. It is this novelty that fact that we can anticipate the shape of a luminaire. Everything is new and much to discover, this is what interests me.
A beautiful lamp should be like a living object, turning when it is illuminated. She should talk to us, enlighten us and bring comfort when it's dark. My latest products are more focused on what makes this magic, like the Mesmeri." - Eric Solè
