According to designer François Chambard, "the piece is inspired by multiple influences over a large spectrum: from 1930s and 1940s Pierre Chareau's iconic designs (one of my masters) up 1960s and 1970s pop. The lamp works as a desk lamp or a table lamp. We used a combination of rich materials (copper, brass, wood) and subtle colors (light green, light pink or black for the more conservative demographics)."

"Like many of our pieces, the piece relies on an 'industrial craft' sensibility: basic utilitarian designs punctuated by powerful connections and archetypal joinery details. For the lamp, such elements are visible in the way the wooden stem is connected to the powder-coated T bar, or in the way the back of the shade is attached with a colored metal plate. We decided to use five small Edison bulbs and leave them totally exposed in the colored metal frame in an order to reinforce the friendly mechanical feel. To make sure that the lamp provides a high touch experience, it features a subtle logo cutout and a custom oversize knob for the dimmer switch."
