Inspired by ancient Greek mythology, Ludovic Falédam from Barbadine Design created a series of sculptural pendants that will make any living space shine. When creating the lamp, the French designer was particularly interested in the story of queen Cassiopeia and her daughter Andromeda, both of whom in their tale abandon their human bodies to become a constellation of stars. Beautiful and intricate like the story itself, these luminaries will bring the celestial patterns into your home—something we don’t see much of in New York City.
The stunning “Cassiopée & Andromède” lamp features a shade assembled by hand in a cumulus pattern using wooden sticks. The volumetric screen protects the light bulb, which hangs from a contrasting red cord that disappears when the light its on. As the light plays with the wooden sticks assemblage, it gives off a subtle glow that blends within the space instead of overtaking it all with its presence.
This play between materiality and light reflects stunning constellations on both ceiling and walls, bringing a piece of the sky indoors.
The lamps are produced by French firm Sentou in numbered limited editions and can be purchased as a pair or on their own.
