How and where are your products manufactured?

What’s the most important part of your process?
To be honest, each step is important: from the process with the designers to get to the accurate design, then with the manufacturers and finally with our dealers. That’s the challenge of an editor, building a network of great partners all the way though, that are the perfect ambassadors of the brand !
What projects have your lights been used in recently?
DELIGHT YOGA – THE HAGUE, NETHERLANDS
The interior project for Delight Yoga by the Loft took place in their favourite city: The Hague. The open floor-plan and the vast windows facing quiet gardens make it one of the most serene interiors, according to the architects. And despite it being right in the heart of the city, it is the perfect place to retreat from all the hustle and bustle. For Petite Friture, it’s always a pleasure to see the Vertigo lamps’ lightness enhanced by such a project. We can feel a very strong and peaceful atmosphere.
CLINIQUE DU PARC – MONTPELLIER, FRANCE
What can we expect to see in the coming year?
The creation of urban moments to share. It is in this spirit that we are launching next September a new range: tableware.
This new range, in which the first collection is signed by Färg & Blanche, is created in cobranding with REVOL. The collection will be presented in a mise en scene conceived by the culinary designer Studio Appétit which will be shown in cafes in which we are taking a pop-up artistic direction. Following this the tableware collection will be integrated in our distribution channels.
Finally, tell us about the last time you found a place / object / experience really inspiring?
Working with all the designers from different fields for this September collection: product designers and food designers all contributed to make this moment crazy and surprising. Bon appetit!
