Lighting made from found objects by Louis-Marie Planquette


These whimsical lights by French designer Louis-Marie Planquette are made from objects found in flea markets and antique shops, “…created from recycled objects‚ in an atmosphere of simplicity‚ humour‚ poetry and balance.”  His works are inspired by nineteenth-century scientific creativity and carry references to photography, cinematography, medicine and typography.  Through his work he attempts to make connections with the knowledge of the past, “…without which our knowledge of today and tomorrow cannot be.”
