“Six dix et six plis brillent” is a copper lamp that puts a great emphasis on the material and its specific features. The lamp takes advantage of the ductility of the metal to design its sphere-shaped module. This module naturally tends to come back to its original flat shape and thus applies a small pressure on each side that makes it mechanically fit in the disks located at each pole. The lamp is thereby designed with only two different shapes in order to reduce the manufacturing process. No tools are needed, just the customer’s hands to assemble the parts. When you live with copper, you see time impacting and transforming the product every day. Time and oxidation that goes along literally continue working on the material and thus make the product unique to every user. The copper and its evolutions re-invent the product and redefine its dentity. To make sure this oxidation happen, copper undergoes really little surface finishing. By focusing on the copper features and its evolution to endlessly re-invent its identity and reflect the flying time, this lamp is a great example of how material itself can at the heart of a product’s function and identity.
Trois Petits Tours
Time goes on. As the world continues to evolve, today’s breakthrough can become tomorrow’s history. Trois Petits Tours distinguishes itself by combining the pocket watch of yesteryears with the minimalistic aesthetic of today. The original design features a single bracelet that can be employed equally as a wristband or a strap; allowing the timepiece to be worn either on the wrist or in the gusset.
The band unconventionally passes through the clock’s face and clips itself around the hour’s dial. The system offers surprising stability whilst bringing an unusual yet effective way of fastening a watch.
Trois Petits Tours is powered with a CR32 battery. A quartz oscillator associated with an electronic circuit displays the time by operating a stepper rotating two disks on which two dots are respectively reading the hour and the minute.
The bracelet is made of Silicon, the dial of concentric brushed aluminium and the lenses are in PMMA.
