Triode : Le design américain

With glass, everything is a matter of light. The Parisian showroom of the publisher Triode proves it by bringing together a series of luminaries by American designers who bring a new freshness to our interiors. A singular style with mechanical or intangible creations, represented by two of their partners, Lindsey Adelman and John Pomp. And let there be light!

The French design brand Triode offers us a small excerpt of what is being done in the USA in terms of lighting in its famous showroom on rue Jacob (6ème arrondissement). Specialists designers pentagon, the firm founded by Jacques Barret chooses singular personalities to embody the soul of the brand, to the delight of fans and curious.


New York designer Lindsey Adelman has specialized in lighting design since 1996, and founded her studio in 2006. From a career in industrial design, she uses a mechanical aesthetic in objects that find the balance between lightness and strength. A technician of metal, glass and marble, she works with a team of forty people to embody her artistic and graphic work in the intangible substance of her projects. This is the case of the series of lamps BB, which deploys a mechanical arm along which tinted glass bulbs branch out.
Its realization Kingdom Drape, designed in partnership with the designer Karl Zahn, visible at the entrance of the showroom of Triode, evokes a bunch of grapes that bend their metal branches. In his series SC.01there is a porcelain sconce that filters the milky light behind a disc, and a white-blown glass fixture that plays on the strength and flexibility of the material. When design becomes synonymous with poetry.

The other designer who caught our eye offers equally airy furniture. John Pomp, who has been surfing the wave of glass for over twenty years, transmits his love of matter in a mobile suspension, the Calla Mobile, which articulates light crystal hats around a massive brass chandelier. And for those who have the wave to the soul, they can also go to a hand-blown glass sculpture, theInfinity Pendant, a series of hanging lights, clear glass, topaz or sepia, and celebrating the flexibility and reflections of the hand-carved material.

And to get a better idea, go to the Parisian showroom, rue Jacob, which exposes these different models in a virtual reality experience.

An enlightened trip!
