Émilie Cathelineau’s triangular modular lighting certainly puts an elegant spin on DIY. On its own, or more enthrallingly in any conceivable configuration Tétra can shape a drop-dead wall installation. Multiply the angled lights with their warm LED glow—side by side, in freeform shapes or linear arrangements-—for a truly dazzling statement-piece.

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.
