Amusingly abstract metal shapes transported from the imagination of designer Sylvain Willenz line up in horizontal formation in his striking Nacho. With an integrated strip LED and glowing mouth-blown opal glass globe (and 2 spotlights on the larger model), the pendant straddles the divide between hi-tech lighting and surrealistic sculpture. French maker CVL manufactures each one by hand, translating the Belgian-based designer's vision in an exquisite mix of metal choices.

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.
