Lighting cultivated in France. Beautiful, unique, lasting. La Loupiote is a portable lamp designed to liven up your interior in a creative and poetic way, while perpetuating the fundamental link that unites us with nature. Like the fruit that composes it, each of my lamps is unique. I produce works where the concept of unique piece is the essence of my work. La Loupiote is inspired by our ancestral customs, draws from our sacred origins and reinvents the close relationship that links man to his history and his environment.

Plant lamp made from calabash gourds cultivated in France. Some fruits come from my production in Picardy, and others are provided to me by a peasant who perpetuates their culture. The pearls are in painted wood. The Bamako range is covered with cotton cord made in Toulouse by the Mansas shoe repair shop. Each decor is unique. The Loupiotes are equipped with an electric wire sheathed fabric made in Italy with a length of 3 meters to facilitate their movement and their hanging. The paint used is a casein, lead-free and non-aggressive, ultra-pigmented formula for high resistance to light and time. The dimensions of a Loupiotes vary between 15cm and 19 cm in diameter, and 30 cm to 40 cm in height (pearls included). La Loupiote can be installed above a bed or a desk, reading style. But it will also perfectly enliven a child's room, a slightly dark corner of the living room or your balcony for summer aperitifs.

It all starts with the fruit. Follow the form, discover the material, the roughness of the bark, its accidents and its victories ... It was from this conversation that my artistic approach was born, the choice of technique and decor. I harvest, I cut, I hollow out, I sand, I drill, I paint, I illustrate ... I celebrate the color, I play with contrasts, I decorate the shape, I sprinkle it with gold, I lights up in dotted lines and the calabash becomes light. My creations are singular and poetic works, designed to reveal the fundamental link that unites us with nature. They encourage dialogue and emotion. Inspired by our ancestral customs, drawing from our sacred origins, observing the world around us, its breath, its vitality and its anger, I aspire to reinvent the close relationship that binds man to its history and to its environment. My manufacturing processes are artisanal, ethical and united. Each piece is unique and customizable.

Chaque Loupiote est livrée avec son certificat d'authenticité dans un emballage écologique, naturel et recyclable. L'entretient de la Loupiote s'effectue au chiffon ou à l'éponge humide. Pour les finitions ultra mates réalisez le nettoyage sur l'ensemble de la surface pour assurer l’homogénéité de la texture. La Loupiote est une lampe végétale : elle préfère les ampoules LED non chauffantes.

Craftsman

My workshop is installed in a very small village, in the middle of everything and nothing, between the sheep and the pond, just at the edge of the wood ... Part of my time is devoted to the cultivation of calabashes: preparing the earth, caring for the plants, pampering the fruits, orchestrating the harvest and setting the calabashes to dry. Then comes the time of creation ... A dialogue takes place with each fruit: follow its shape, discover its texture, the roughness of the bark, its accidents and its victories ... It is from this conversation that is born the choice of technique and decor. I cut, I dry, I hollow out, I sand, I pierce, I paint, I illustrate, according to the inspiration and my desires. My work celebrates color, preferably matt, ultra pigmented. I like to use gold leaf, to play with contrasts, to light up in dotted lines: the fruit becomes light, a singular, delicate and poetic work, designed to brighten life and all interiors.
