Euroluce, the lighting show held every alternate year, is set to commence next week during the international furniture fair in Milan. At this year’s show, Cristalleries de St.-Louis will introduce three lighting collections by distinguished women designers: Kiki van Eijk, Paola Navone, and Ionna Vautrin. Kiki van Eijk’s design Matrice, which is French for Matrix, is an illuminating piece of art whose inspiration sprung from the thousands of old molds she discovered in the factory’s warehouse. The design takes after the shape of one of those molds. The Matrice is available in three styles- a sconce, table lamp, and floor lamp. LEDs well light it; it is available in a copper or nickel frame with a matte or bright finish.
The table lamp, shown in copper, stands 15 ½ inches tall and is available for $14,200.
Cristalleries de St.-Louis is the oldest glass manufacturer in France, but it takes a 21st-century approach to new products.
