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.

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.
