Christian Lacroix Maison and Forestier Paris collaborate on lighting collection
Christian Lacroix Maison is pleased to announce a new collaboration. Sacha Walckhoff, the brand’s creative director, has created a lighting collection for Forestier Paris.
In the words of Walckhoff, “This new line of Christian Lacroix Maison lighting was born from our meeting with Jean-Dominique Lèze, the dynamic director of Maison Forestier. In this collection, halfway between craftmanship and design, structures of hand-hammered metal tubes are adorned with lampshades that seem clad in foliage or canework (Canopy and Barbade Christian Lacroix fabrics, edited by Designers Guild). From this idea blossomed the Frondaison suspension, the Jeune Pousse table lamp, the Branchages wall lamp and the Arbuste floor lamp. We took immense fun in inventing these luminous objects, evocative of a luxurious flora, yet decidedly contemporary.”
Says Jean-Dominique Leze, CEO of Forestier, “We are delighted to announce our collaboration with Christian Lacroix Maison, which subscribes perfectly to the DNA of Forestier. It is our pleasure to introduce this new collection, presented exclusively for the first time at the Salone del Mobile 2015 in Milan.
Since 2012, design has been the driving force of the Forestier brand, with creativity, poetry and nature as its pillars.
Emblematic of the Forestier catalogue, the lights and their environment are a part of an energy that is happening right now. New tools and new technologies inspire new skills to highlight the poetic spirit and aesthetic that is so dear to Forestier Paris.
