It's renowned for pushing design boundaries, so whenLigne Roset unveiled its new lighting collection, we were more than a little excited. Sharp and minimalist, it's a stark contrast to the brand's soft and full-bodied sofa designs, together creating a pleasing balance.
From a cosmic inspired lamp to a mouth-blown glass dome, here's our favourite five pieces from the collection...
The designer Martin Hirth created this articulated counterbalance system which enables a multitude of different angles, positions and orientations of light, at one point looking like a solar eclipse. This versatility makes it just as much a floor lamp as a reading light, providing both general indirect lighting (by angling the shade towards a wall or ceiling) and directional light above a settee, reading armchair or table.
Designed by Gregoire Moinard, this simple, yet eye-catching light emits a warm white glow from the perfectly spherical bulb, while the circular disc comes in satin black or red lacquer.
This light, balancing in a tall, thin structure, is designed byNathalie Dewez. TheLED module rotates 180° and is even completely removable, making it a versatile spotlight, reading light or task light.
Designed by Chape & Mache, the Ondule table light is like a delicate, elegant wave of copper ribbon with a matt black flexible tip.The combination of both coloursaccentuates the light's geometric shape as well as its capacity to be angled as necessary.
This table lamp, by Christian Werner, is a beautiful balance of masculinity and femininity, with a black mouth-blown glass dome softly cocooning a hidden light source.
