Drip and Drop Creation

Posted by Walter Phillips on 13.03.2018 - Tagged as:

 

DRIP / DROP seduces you from a distance and make you want to get closer. Its design invites you to illuminate them. In this moment, when lit, is when the magic reaches its maximum splendor.

 

Christophe Mathieu, designer of Drip and Drop, looked for a pleasant and delicate material for its shade, almost like a candy. This is the reason why he chose borosilicate glass, which is thinner than blown glass.

 

The difference between Drip and Drop is the shade. Both are made of the same material, but while Drip is simple and with straight lines, Drop has a rounded silhouette. When we change the lampshade, we have the sensation that it is a completely new lamp.

 

In this collection you will find various innovative solutions. Among them floor lamps and wall lamps with tray and USB connection, table lamps with USB connection and multiple cascading pendant lamps. All of them ideal for commercial projects.
