Calé(e)'s asymmetry seemingly becomes a meditation on form at the intersection of its 2 spheres in this diminutive floor lamp from French maker CVL. Conceived by Parisian studio Pool designers Léa Padovani and Sébastien Kieffer, the contrasting cylinders of the base and stand are emphasized by the choice of matching or differing metal finishes for each element. Topped with a shade in either white or black, Calé(e) yields beautifully modulated illumination.

Made in France
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.
