La Volière Table Lamp
From French designer Mathieu Challières comes a collection of enchanting lamps and chandeliers decorated with delicate fabricated birds in real feathers that have found refuge in a copper-plated lampshade. These frozen menageries seem to await the fairy dust that will bring them to life and let them flutter free from their birdcage. Mathieu Challières avoids the mumsy pastiche of putting birds on a chandelier by turning the cage into the chandelier. Warming and delicate, the fantastic whimsy of these pieces lures us out of the safety of modernism into a brave new world where illusion is king and rooms are transformed by avian mirages.
Full of poetic whimsy these luminaries are truly one of a kind, and color combinations will vary from piece to piece. Each piece is individually made by hand, the styles ranges from the Baroque right through to Contemporary. For each model the staging of the birds is executed according to a precise plan, guarantor of the visual harmony. From one room to another, the colors vary to infinity, making each copy a unique.
