HALO lamps by Quentin de Coster

March 8th, 2017 by retail design blog

Liège-based industrial designer Quentin de Coster has collaborated with Christophe Genard, one of the last Belgian glass blowers, to create the HALO table lamp. Developed as a limited edition, the geometric and translucent design of the piece is directly influenced by the standard light bulb. For this project, one characteristic approach that de Coster has adopted alongside Genard is to expose the usually hidden parts of most lamp.

In this case, the pronounced glass body of the clearly reveals the circular fluorescent light positioned at its center — evoking the shape of an aureole typically seen in holy paintings or around the moon and sun when they cast their light. Hence, the final effect offers an impression of discrete levitation.
