a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
An original, iconic, essential and evocative creation: lamp that leaves its mark.
As it is a luminous object signed by Odile Decq, it could be nothing less than an outstanding and memorable architectural artifact, capable of creating a unique and ethereal elegant space.
Like other products by Luceplan, the brand name par excellence in lighting Made in Italy, Javelot Macro was born ‘ad hoc' for the expansion project of the MACRO (Rome's Museum of Contemporary Art) and created by the Parisian studio ODBC - Odile Decq and Benoît Cornette.
Conceived to coherently interpret the intentions of the designer in a quest for dynamic equilibrium of spaces and structures, the Javelot Macro lamp was created in two versions: a ceiling light foR interiors and a landscape light for outdoors.
The first one consists of a single tapered body in aluminium with conic ends in glossy methacrylate, capable of diffusing suggestive illumination thanks to dramatic LED sources.
The second one consists of three luminous ‘javelins' that intersect at an asymetrical joint assembled on a pole, giving rise to a sculpture creating unprecedented outdoor choregraphies.
Each individual element features two LEDs with a colour temperature of 3,000°K for an extremly low consumption of just 16W.
Once again, avant-garde design meets research and experimentation Spearheaded by Luceplan. The results are innovative lighting creations inspiring new landscapes of light with elegance, functionality and sustainability.
French architects Decq (b.1950) and Cornette (b.1953): notable for their innovative use of metal and sophisticated engineering, Decq and Cornette first rose to international prominence with their administrative and social building for the Banque Populaire de l'Ouest in Rennes in 1990. They are winners of many awards.
