Eric de Dormael sculpts a geometric construction with this hypnotic, candle-like Knokke light. The French artist’s studies into light and shadows, shapes and empty spaces, and how even the patina plays on this tension is central to his sculptural art work and products such as this series. Drawing is a primordial aspect of this work, as is the fluidity of form. The Knokke particularly plays to the architectural quality in his inspired work.
His mesmerizing table lamp takes an architectural form in his oft-preferred medium of solid brass wire, anchored with a black metal base. Lit by small LEDs, it spreads warm illumination anywhere since it’s also completely mobile and powered by a rechargeable battery.
