Like an abstracted tree branch, the gleaming Arborescence extends to hold its white paper-fiber drum shade. Architect-turned-product designer Hervé Langlais offers his eye-catching pendant version in a range of sizes and drop lengths. Finishes include polished or satin brass as well as copper, graphite or nickel—all reflecting the longtime handcrafted expertise of French lighting brand CVL.

Nestled in the Loire Valley, CVL Luminaires first debuted in 1960 and has been handcrafting exquisite lighting pieces in France ever since. Featuring “noble materials” including brass, glass, wood and stainless steel, the company’s autonomy ensures that its products reflect uncompromising quality as well as mindfully sustainable production.
Led by design director Émilie Cathelineau, CVL also collaborates with independent designers like Hervé Langlais, POOL and Kristian Gavoille. In collections ranging from Calé(e) to Saturne, the fixtures reflect a contemporary, and sometimes whimsical, take on classic French epochs like Art Deco. Often glossed with a favorite touch of golden brass, CVL’s offerings define a sense of panache with luxurious materials melded with ever-intriguing forms.
