Whether lighting needs require a single “planet” or an entire galaxy, this luminous sphere creates its own cosmos. Designer Hervé Langlais posits a mouth-blown opal glass orb encircled with a solid-brass ring for Saturne, available in 2 sizes that each incorporate an appropriately sized LED light source. And for larger-scale installations, pendants can also be clustered from a single canopy in either a circular model in a range of standard sizes or a custom rectangular version.

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.
