And yet we have seen thousands, hundreds of thousands of lamps. But the lamp of Verner Panton's is one of those that we secretly dream about at night, the one we would like to have on our night table or desk, so that it can enlighten us.

It was indeed the first piece that G.T Rietveld designed to offer comfort and quality products to the "Mass design".design. We remember this singular shape, however nothing distinguished it from others in terms of coating. Fortunately for us, CASSINA and Bertjan Pot had the wonderful idea to collaborate on this year's reissue project. The fabric design of each piece is unique, and the combination of triangles is never repeated. This is why, thanks to its limited-edition nature, this piece has the status of a work of art and is unique. Thus, due to their high artistic value and special creative character, all models in the Cassina are protected by copyright. Lucky are those who own one of these design reissues.

Well, you should know that the outdoor furniture set Locus Solus appears there, near this swimming pool. Indeed absolutely representative of the time It is a design that is "brightly coloured and linear, and fits in perfectly with its surroundings with vibrancy and personality". . This furniture was the first known true outdoor set. Designed in 1964 by Gae AulentiWe were surprised to find these elements at this year's Milan show. The characteristics of a well-made design are there, the aesthetics are simple, and yet, we should have thought about that. We quickly forget that this series was an icon of another era and we can easily imagine it here.refreshing our exteriors.

We appreciate the initiative of SENTOUthat restores live to those famous stools Cryptogramme by Roger Tallon. FHe is a renowned French designer and was for a time Pierre Paulin's partner, Unfortunately, it was eclipsed by the arrival of Philippe Starck... Designed for a cafeteria project at the Grand Palais which never saw the light of day, it is clear that this mythical stool in the history of design has finally met its fate and its public. With a sobriety to make all designers jealous in search of the essential, this seat will easily find its place in any environment. Just goes to show that design reissues can sometimes make more noise in this day and age, thanks to our certain admiration for the past...

5. PARLIAMENT LAMP

This avant-garde lamp has been copied many times and still is. Le Corbusier had the logic of the beautiful geometry and knew how to reveal the basic forms to the public: "Our eyes are made to see shapes through light: (...) cubes, cones, spheres, cylinders or pyramids are the perfect primary shapes that it reveals to us. » For in what constitutes the Parliament lamp, everything is just a matter of primary forms associated. They give rise to a lasting and memorable design. And then there's the genius who thought of combining direct and indirect light with an adjustable shade. If you're looking for ornament, you should know that it is, in any case, a crime here.

NEMO LIGHTING, available in 2 colours.
