«Phare de forêt» is a tower giving a bright signal. This lamp is designed to provide a light source reaching the desk top or table top. It allows to illuminate superficialy the surface (to write or to read for example). Nevertheless, it may as well be placed next to a sofa or in the angle of a room. It comes in three local woods: Oak, Beech or Ash. The top hat is made of ceramic or turned by hand. Woods and clay for ceramic, come from Aquitaine around the Dordogne county. Production of parts is also made in Dordogne, by the hand of a wood craftsman and a ceramist. Any steps to manufacture the lamp are local, into a radius of 10kms. The project is centered on collaborations with craftsmen, using old fashion skills. The interest is to enhance the ancestral gestures in a contemporary production. Those workshop offers flexibility and knowledge sought in limited series. Each piece is worked in a unique way, by hand in accordance with the fabricated materials.
