I love finding small companies at Maison et Objet - designers who give their products real time and effort and a hand-made touch. One such designer that I found was Belgian-based lighting designer Sophie Casier. I love the simple but intricate look of her metal and wooden light shades. The three layers of surface - two horizontal and one vertical strip - create interesting plays of light. The light shines against the wall but also sits on the surface of the material, creating a soft halo of indirect lighting. There is also a version of the lights that come with an LED detail that creates long streaks of angular light reflections on the wall. Overall a fantastic, multi-faceted light shade with lots of customisable details in terms of final wood finish or painted colour. From such an original and innovative designer as Sophie, we shall certainly be using these lights in a project as soon as possible!

Description from the Designer:
A training in fake marble and restoration of old furniture has brought me to decoration and more particularly to lighting, which lead me to create my first wall light, because of the demand of a client for a hotel in Bruxelles. 
Very quickly, the success has been so big that some illegal business copied my model (there is still a legal case going on), but now the model is now fully registered. 
Then followed the creation of another model called Birth2, bigger and in different finishes: polished, brushed, aged, matt lacquer or shiny.
Then some models in wood, as a mirror, so one on the left, one on the right, available in many diff ways, equipped with led lighting. 

And very soon, a floor lamp and a ceiling lamp are already in the creation, I will let you know...

This concludes our Paris Maison et Objet review - I hope you have enjoyed reading about our lovely finds!
