PETITE FRITURE : Vertigo Lamp, copper


The stylish lamp from Constance Guisset

SKU: L0020304 Categories: , ,


Vertigo was one of the first very large design chandeliers and has greatly influenced the thinking on this type of lighting. The ambition was to develop a graphic design suspension with a 1/2 foot ladder for the large Vertigo suspension, while making it very light and airy to bring movement. An optimistic and generous dialogue with Constance Guisset made it possible to maintain a strong emulsion on the materials over time and a “Made in France” manufacturing process. To make Vertigo quiver with the vibrations of the air, the structure was made of fibreglass with polyurethane ribbons placed by hand.

The ribbons give this suspension a wired character. The latter is appreciated in the visual of the lamp but also by the thread it weaves with the spaces it signs.

The play of shadows and light ribbons on the walls reinforces the graphic dimension of Vertigo. This aesthetics echoes Petite Friture’s own markers: graphics, geometry, details and finish.
