Luc Gensollen

The French designer Luc Gensollen, colleague of Andrée Putman and Philippe Starck, makes limited-edition, conversation-generating table lamps in which vintage computer motherboards are recycled into box shades. In a related series, epoxy shades are engraved with circuitry patterns; another set of lamps are topped with perforated metal shades that hurl dramatic shadows. Gensollen’s latest introduction is Quanone, a multidirectional and height-adjustable floor lamp with cornucopia-shape shades in white or yellow epoxy glass. All frames are nickel-polished steel.
