An elegant equation of modern and traditional craftsmanship, the Lighthouse balances a Venetian mouth blown glass shade on an industrially engineered aluminium arm, weighted by a marble column.

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec cleverly draw our attention to the precariousness of the equilibrium while providing a sturdy, sculptural, voluptuous and enchanting light. Impressive and an instant success the Lighthouse now stands in prestigious museum collections and is sure to become a prized heirloom, handed down to the next generation of collectors.


Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec have been working together for over ten years, bonded by diligence and challenged by their distinct personalities. In 2007, they were spotted by Cappellini, giving them their first industrial design projects. They have gone on to work with Vitra, Magis, Ligne Roset, Kvadrat, Issey Miyake and more recently Axor and Alessi. From designing spaces to furniture, taking on architectural projects to designing textile wall systems or comprehensive collections, the designer brothers maintain experimental activity, which is essential to the development of their work. Several exhibitions have been devoted to Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec including the Design Museum, London and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. In late 2011, the Centre Pompidou Metz invited them to do a major monographic exhibition. The brothers recently designed iPad application Cercles which showcases drawings, original sketches and models in an intuitive manner.
