CVL’s horizontal IP Calé(e), like its 2 sibling versions, is designed expressly for use in the bathroom. “Caler" in French means to balance or to hold in place, which aptly describes the geometric equipoise of the wall fixture’s round and linear elements as designed by Paris studio Pool. With an integrated LED light source for warmly even illumination, it’s composed of solid brass in a choice of matte or polished metallic finishes.

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.
