Les Bouées de Bois

a project in collaboration with 'La Cristallerie Saint Louis' in partnership with Design Academy Eindhoven.

During the visit of the Saint-Louis factory I got inspired by the way the crystal is turned and got reminded of drops of water. By hanging those 'drops' on a rope I got into a nautical theme. Slowly my project evolved into a lantern that feels like it floats on the water like a buoy.

The beautiful 'royal blue' crystal reminds me of the moon reflecting on the sea at night and should be your beacon of light in the dark.
