PAULINEPLUSLUIS

PaulinePlusLuis is a design studio based in Brussels, created by Pauline Capdo and Luis Bellenger in 2015. 

Bio

Pauline was born in 1992 in Bayonne, France, and started studying design in Toulouse. Luis was born in 1987 in Paris, France, and studied cabinet making during five years. They met in Belgium, where they both studied design in Saint-Luc Tournai and Industrial design at La Cambre in Brussels. Their eclectic background, artisanal, artistic and then industrial, built their design approach that combines experiment and industry.

Their work is based on the observation of objects, phenomena, moments, that they interpret and transform. They are inspired by the shapes already belonging to our environment, that they put together and transcribe to their objects. Trough this approach, their products give a sense of déjà vu, refer to stories and moments, and can bring a poetic dimension to industrial production.

 

Objects

BIJOU

Portable lamp
Prototype

Bijou is a portable table lamp. It is inspired by the very first battery-operated lamps. First intented for technical uses - in the areas of mining industry, navy, or railways - they have evolved to become a daily object. Its name comes from one of the first portable lamps that was designed for domestic use, from which its aesthetics is inspired. The Bijou lamp comes from the story and the industrial aesthetics of these first battery-operated lamps that have became iconic, combined with contemporary lighting techniques. This confrontation makes the object timeless and familiar.
