Between art and functionality
A designer with Serax now for many years, Marie Michielssen has expanded her Earth lighting series with a larger version of her spherical table lamp White Earth. As always, the material she has chosen, papier mâché, creates a very special ambience that makes the lamp at the same time an objet d’art and a functional item.
The standing lamp Earth adheres to the same construction principle as its little sister. The object consists of two hollow hemispheres, touching but offset from one another. This unusual design is such that the actual light source is concealed, thereby providing indirect, atmospheric lighting.
