The table lamp can be oriented left or right, and consists of an array of bronze leaves.
Ceramicist Joëlle Fèvre sculpts light and elegant pieces which evoke tranquility and highlight finesse and luminosity. Her work allows light to creep and illuminate the various surfaces of the sculpture that she overlaps to create an even more soulful object.
Belgian ceramic artist, Joëlle Fèvre sculpts light, elegant pieces which convey tranquility and highlight the delicacy and translucence of porcelain. Her work allows the light to slip through and illuminate the different surfaces which she sometimes superimposes in order to create objects with extra soul. She sculpts porcelain, carving the whiteness with the tranquility of gentle curves inspired by land and aquatic plants.
Bronze reinterprets and beautifies these pure forms for this collaboration with Maison Charles. These gently, serenely curving leaves symbolize longevity. Timelessness cast in bronze with a gold patina. Joelle Fèvre loves plants, which she gives a completely different dimension here. The lavishness brings to mind the mysterious beauty of Venetian palaces.
Founded by Ernest Charles in 1908 under the name Maison Charles, Charles Paris specializes in the reproduction of antique lighting. With the years, the company has built a strong reputation among the bronze casting profession.
His two sons, Jean (First-Class Honours graduate from the Ecole Boulle) and Jacques (Applied Arts graduate) join their father in the family business in the late '50s. Together they design the most distinctive elements that will characterize the "Lampes Charles" style.
The '60s were marked by the huge success of the "Collection Inox" created by Jacques Charles. The collection becomes an aesthetic reference for that period.
In 1971, Chrystiane Charles, Gold Medal winner at the Ecole Supérieure Nationale des Beaux-Arts section Sculpture, takes over the family business and creates the collection that bears its name.
In the '80s, Maison Charles is awarded numerous prizes and joins the Comité Colbert that groups the most prestigious French art trade and design companies, consolidating in this way the company’s reputation for quality.
In 2001, Maison Charles is taken over by Michael Wagner who becomes chairman of the company. The workshops are relocated in Saint-Denis (a northern suburb of Paris), in the premises of the former workshops of the famous silversmithing brand, Christofle.
Since 2006 Philippe Parent has assumed the role of artistic director of the company. He has modernized several iconic pieces of the collection and has commissioned renowned designers to complete the collection with contemporary designs.
At the workshop, ten devoted craftsmen carry on hundred years of exceptional know-how. A tradition of excellence that has become duty. Dictated by the passion of men concerned about dedicating their talent and expertise to design a unique lamp: a home jewel that sculpts light.
Each piece is the work of a true master craftsman. Imagined, designed, poured, engraved, filed, polished, glazed, processed, degreased, varnished by talented craftsmen. A brilliant feat of craftsmanship carried out with the utmost care.
Beyond time and style, quality excellence constitutes Charles' main value.
