Designed by Marc Venot, "Store" is a wall light resulting from the crossing of a roller blind cloth and a lamp. Surprising and offbeat.

"Store" is a surface-mounted table lamp made of aluminum structure, 20 Watts fluorescent tube and non-woven fabric. 

Mounted on a roller blind mechanism, the fabric strip will allow the user who unwinds or rolls it to control the lamp and vary the intensity of the light in the room. The role of the fabric of this somewhat particular blind is therefore not here to protect the light but to diffuse it by playing with its support. Not yet published and at the prototype stage, "Store" nonetheless remains an original and inspiring idea.

Based in Vincennes, Marc Venot graduated in 2004 from ENSCI / Les Ateliers (National School of Industrial Creation). Designer of a luminaire published by Ligne Roset in 2007, he was also in 2005 winner of VIA Project Aids and a VIA label for the "Catch Me" pendant light selected by the 2008 Design Observer.

Another example of a light shade to discover, the "Solar Vertical Lamp". With this project, Korean designers Yoon-Hui Kim and Eun-Kyung Kim integrate indeed a light source powered by solar energy in a single blind slats. To learn more, read our recent article on the subject.
