Vertigo Nova is the epitome of striking a balance between technology and elegance. A unique design lamp that inspires reverie and embodies Petite Friture values and the Libre Garde state of mind.
Petite Friture and Constance Guisset, an inseparable duo with lofty ambitions, have started a new chapter of the Vertigo story with Vertigo Nova: a highly technical piece of sophisticated design. The collection includes items, from table and floor lamps to suspension and wall lights. The vast veil of graphic lines mounted atop a sphere of handblown glass uses built-in LED technology to emit a soft light. A line that comes in black or white, for two subtly different moods: opalescent white on white, or ashen grey on black for the pinnacle of sophistication. Vertigo Nova quivers as the geometric curve of the fiberglass hoop. Installed by hand by qualified French artisans and held delicately but firmly in place by taught ribbons, reacts to the lightest of breezes.
Born in 1976, Constance Guisset lives and works in Paris. Constance Guisset is a French designer with an original story. After studying economics and business at ESSEC and IEP in Paris, followed by a year in the parliament in Tokyo she chose to focus on design. In 2007 she graduated from ENSCI - Les Ateliers and founded her studio. She quickly earned recognition through winning prizes such as the Grand Prix du Design de la ville de Paris in 2008, the public prize at the Design Parade in Villa Noailles 2009, and finally in 2010 both the designer of the year at Maison et Objet, and the Audi Talent Awards. Her different research paths have led her to work with Petite Friture, Fontana Arte and Molenti amongst others for product design.In addition she has worked with Angelin Preljocaj, Established & Sons and Galeries Lafayette notably working with the latter on scenography, and has worked with video for Le Musee des Arts Decoratif and the design Biennale in Saint-Etienne.
