Lighting grown in France. Unique, beautiful, durable. The Loupiote is born from a fruit from the earth and the sun: the calabash. It is a plant lamp, pushed in the garden, thought of as a sustainable contemporary approach and respectful of the environment. Each fruit has a unique beauty. The calabash imposes its own movement. A dialogue takes place: to follow the form, to discover the material, the asperities of the bark, its accidents and its victories ... It is from this conversation that the choice of the technique and the decorations is born. I cut, I dry, I help, I sand, I pierce, I paint, I illustrate. Celebrate the color, play with the contrasts, decorate the form, sprinkle it with gold, illuminate it in dotted lines. And the fruit becomes light. The Loupiote is a singular work, delicate and poetic, whose hereditary sweetness will sunny all the interiors.

Vegetable lamp made from gourds gourds grown in France. Some fruits come from my production in Picardy, and others are provided by a peasant who perpetuates their culture. The pearls are in painted wood. The Cosmos range is entirely hand-pierced, each decor is unique. The paint used is a casein resistant formula, lead-free, non-aggressive and ultra-pigmented for perfect hold in light and time. The Loupiotes are equipped with a fabric-wrapped electrical wire made in Italy with a length of 3 meters to facilitate their movement and hanging. The dimensions of a Loupiotes vary between 15cm and 19 cm in diameter, and 30 cm to 40 cm in height (pearls included). The Loupiote is installed above a bed or a desk, way reading. But it will also perfectly enliven a child's room, a corner of a little dark lounge or your balcony for summer aperitifs.

The product we buy should not only be beautiful and / or useful: it should also be good. Good for the eyes, good for the heart, good for life. I chose eco-design because I want to produce with kindness. Because I want a creative and responsible consumption. Because I am convinced that the time devoted to each object, the attention and the affection which are brought to it, infuse on our daily life. For all this I select my materials with the greatest attention, so as to respect the earth and men as much as possible. My manufacturing processes are artisanal, ethical and supportive. All my creations are made by hand. Each piece is unique and customizable. For collections that enrich the world without impoverishing it, so that our interiors remain unique, with objects that resemble us.

La Loupiote est une lampe végétale : elle préfère les ampoules de type Led ou basse consommation, non chauffantes.

Craftsman

Mon atelier est installé dans un tout petit village, au milieu de tout et de rien, entre les moutons et l'étang, juste à l'orée du bois... Une partie de mon temps est consacré à la culture des calebasses : préparer la terre, soigner les plants, choyer les fruits, orchestrer la récolte et la mise au séchage des calebasses. Puis vient le temps de la création... Un dialogue s'installe avec chaque fruit : suivre sa forme, découvrir sa texture, les aspérités de l'écorce, ses accidents et ses victoires... C'est de cette conversation que naît le choix de la technique et du décors. Je coupe, je sèche, j'évide, je ponce, je perce, je peint, j'illustre, au grès de l'inspiration et de mes envies. Mon travail célèbre la couleur, mate de préférence, ultra pigmentée. J'aime utiliser la feuille d'or, jouer avec les contrastes, éclairer en pointillés : le fruit devient lumière, une œuvre singulière, délicate et poétique, conçue pour ensoleiller la vie et tous les intérieurs.
