Figures from the collective immagination are recalled in tridimensional silohuettes to bring one back to environments and scenarios: the outline of a house, an astronaut out in space or an agile dancer telling stories light cherishes. Figures and light together spread a dynamic and readable idea. Figures to remind a tought, an action. The concept of these light sources is developed in numerous variations: single or group lamps. Lamps to tell a story.
