Each lamp is composed of an American tulipwood base and a patterned lampshade. The bases are available in four different finishes (natural, white, turquoise and orange) and the lampshades in four different purpose-designed patterns.

Two of the lampshades rest on the base a little tilted to one side, just like a beret, whereas the other two rest on the base perpendicularly.

Pastel colours and digital folk textures are the main features of this set of lamps, whose name pays homage to the popular French sweet meringue-based confection. The lamps follow the same aesthetic canons, which results in exciting colour/taste synaesthesias.
