Fine metal openwork that alludes to France's illustrious legacy of Art Déco style surrounds the illuminated center of Turtle, from the wall light series Earth. Artisanal maker CVL handcrafts the fixture in solid brass, to radiate an intricate pattern on the wall behind and soften the warm illumination from the LED light source. Designer Émilie Cathelineau often takes inspiration from the past for her chic contemporary renditions for the French lighting firm, located in the Loire Valley for over 50 years.

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.
