Fabien Barrero’s ‘Phare de forêt’ lamp, ‘forest lighthouse’ in French, is a tower with a light source on top that can illuminate a desk or table top.
“It allows to illuminate superficially the surface to write or to read for example.” says Barrero. “Next to a sofa or in the angle of the living room, it creates a wonderful ambiance.”
Combining traditional craftsmanship with contemporary design, Barrero works with artisans in France and locally sourced materials to create the limited edition lamps. The lamp’s body is made of Ash wood and the “lantern room” on top is hand made ceramic.
Phare de forêt is currently on display at the DMY International Design Festival Berlin until June 1, 2014.
