French design studio Vaulot&Dyèvre has created the Nymphéa for Paris-based company Galerie Gosserez. The hanging light fixture is made of metal discs encircled with LED light bulbs. According to the designer, “The Nymphéa project is a chandelier that reverses the usual workings of ceiling lights. Whilst suspended from the ceiling, one looks at the chandelier from above. This switching between up and down creates an original lighting atmosphere, both intimate and close to the floor. The possibility to change the orientation of the lights also contributes to the design of the lamp. Like water lilies, the disks that make the lamp seem to float above an invisible surface. The observer can think that one has his feet in the water and looks to the bottom of an imaginary pond.”
