I make lamps. They are the tropical ones that came back with me from Brazil where I lived and spent several years producing lamps to order. And, the UFOs(OVNIS) built from the assembly of plastic parts from European flea markets. Working on the association of these materials, I project myself into the a futuristic utopian world organized in simple geometries, a world à la Oskar Schlemmer and Winsor McCay (Little Nemo).
In the combinations of forms, materials and colors. I discover a quantity of possibilities to diffuse the light. There are, beyond the playful pleasure of assemblies, <<discoveries>> where I stop.
While continuing this research based on recycling. I study the means to publish these pieces in ecologically responsible materials.
