With graphic panache from its multiple discs, Tell Me Stories completely outfits the bathroom with its adjustable combination of 2 wall lights, 2 mirror discs (regular and 3x magnifier) and 2 round shelves. Italian designer Giulia Liverani's innovative array provides direct or indirect lighting via just a swivel of each of the lamps with their diffused integrated LEDs while shelves hold toiletries and make-up. Humidity-, water splash- and condensation-resistant, this beaut comes in silver, gold or black finish.

“All of our lighting can travel from Jules Verne’s world to the Blade Runner world,” says Frédéric Winkler, who, along with cofounder Philippe Cater, debuted Paris-based DCW Éditions in 2008. Timelessness guides their mission, beginning with the re-edition of the 1921 Lampe Gras created by Bernard-Albin Gras. One of the first articulated lamps, it would find its way into the studios of Le Corbusier, Sonia Delaunay and Henri Matisse, and has been a standout ever since.
Nostalgia is not what animates Editions DCW, however, but rather a search for elusive and enduring offerings that span generations. Look no further than the introductions from current design leaders Bertrand Balas and architects Dominique Perrault and Gaëlle Lauriot-Prévost. Their new work share a measure of innovation and an artistic countenance that rises above the temporary vagaries of fashion. “Everyone has their own story to tell,” says Winkler of his stable of designers. “Strong characters with a deep and thick soul. That's why their lamps are interesting.”
