DUVAUX LANTERN

From a meeting to a creation

When you create an object, the creative idea can come in several ways… Here it came from the material and more particularly from the meeting with a craftsman, a wood turner who knew how to develop a unique technique.

The idea is to create a small lantern or a reading light, suspended directly by its wire. An object that is both simple in its design but very complex by the mastery of this unusual know-how.

The lantern bears the name of Lazare DUVAUX (1703-1758) who was a French haberdasher whose success was significant. He supplied many lanterns for the Château de Choisy, Fontainebleau, Bellevue…

A UNIQUE EFFECT:
WOOD LACE

All the originality lies in the use and treatment of wood. This unique effect, the result of very delicate turning and sanding, gives transparency to the oak.

AN ORIGINAL PIECE

Each piece of turned wood and each sandblasting is different, which gives the Duvaux lantern a unique status .

At first glance, this material seems fragile. On the contrary and it is even surprising , it shows a certain rigidity and solidity.

The cable is in braided jute which reinforces the natural aspect of this creation.
