NOCTILUQUE . Philippe Nigro
Noctiluque is a lighting family based on a common principle of a double protective skin. The hook reinforces the reference to the portable light, which – by definition – comes with a protective grille and a long wire. Here,however, Philippe Nigro goes beyond the archetype
to invent an object that is at once curious and elegant.
“A semi-transparent box surrounds the luminous, precious heart made of moulded PMMA, which seems to levitate,” says Philippe Nigro. This shell in expanded sheet-metal follows but never touches the internal structure, which blends function and technique.
