Macaroon Lamp by Christian Troels for Lucie Kaas

108

Industrial designer Christian Troels designs a lamp series for Lucie Kaas inspired by the French delicacy, “le macaron”.

Like the “macaron” itself, the lamp consists of three perfectly balanced layers, merging the interaction between the light and heavy. The shiny colorful ceramics adds depth and personality, whereas the contrasting opal glass adds a matte detail and gives a pleasant dimmable light to the room. The brass ring in the middle of the lamp brings the lamp together, harmonizing the different materials effortlessly into each other. Round like the French delicacy, the Macaroon lamps gives rooms a simple elegance with a touch of humor.

Christian Troels about the design:

I have designed the Macaroon lamp series with the purpose of balancing humor and elegance in one design. I wish to put a smile on people’s face and awake curiosity when they see the lamp series.
