The archetypal table lamp undergoes an updated revamp in the Vulcain Lamp by the new French house La Chance, and its yowza appeal is all in the details. Switch it on or off by way of the rounded key control on the side of the slender column base, fashioned from either matte anodized aluminum or White Carrera marble. The slightly shorter Vulcain boasts an aluminum finish base and white metal shade, punctuated by a yellow switch key and blue electrical cord. The taller marble model is capped by a copper shade and features a glossy black key and duo-tone black and white cord. Both shades diffuse light via tiny laser-cut dots in the metal. Pop sophistication.
Vulcain is the contribution to design collective La Chance by Pool, a design studio made up of Léa Padovani and Sebastien Kieffer. Since 2010, these two designers of the the "nouvelle vague" in French design and former collaborators of Noé Duchaufour Lawrance have been known for their detail-oriented graphic objects.
The founders of La Chance, the Paris-based design house, have united talent from the bustling “new wave” of global design—10 designers hailing from 9 different countries—in a collection marked by contemporary French élan. And entrepreneur Jean-Baptiste Souletie and architect Louise Breguetbeen are partners in business and in life, as they say. Between the pair, they have lived in India and China, designed offices in London and built homes in Haiti, and lent their know-how to established luxury companies and emerging start-ups.
When the 20-something couple first met, they discovered they were both inspired by a love of the Art Deco movement, when objects were valued for function as well as their decorative attributes. That spirit imbues the modern sense of luxury and uncontrived manner of of their collection of furniture, lighting and rugs. “We like things to be warm, colorful, and good quality,” Louise says. “And in terms of style, you can see all the workings of the furniture, even the upholstered pieces, as we have nothing to hide.”
