Express Portrait

Graduated from the Atelier d'Aménagement d'Intérieur of Ecole Nationale des Arts Visuels of la Cambre, Nathalie Dewez, age 30, has always worked with the living object, in other words the light. She uses all the potential of material to make her chandeliers, wall lights and lamps light and ethereal. Nathalie features at several exhibitions and shows such as the Biennale Internationale de Design de Saint-Etienne (France), la Quinzaine du Design du Jardin in Chaumont sur Loire (France), the Furniture show in Milan, the Prix du Jeune Design Belge, the Satellite Show in Milan. Winner of the “Young artists” prize of the French Community, Nathalie’s place in design is growing on the Brussels, Belgian andinternational level. Taken up recently by the prestigious Belgian company Vange, Nathalie Dewez is a very promising designer.

Dia was made with the idea of bringing a bit of garden into the house. The principle is quite simple.  Put it above the dining table and you will enjoy the soft light glowing through the trees. It’s an indoor picnic, a new cloth bringing you a whole new universe. Later, you will always be able to change the print for a new atmosphere.

The originality of this light lies in its simple use. Its construction is particularly ingenious: the ‘Plic’ is made of a round bulb with an internal reflector, it is used as a torch that can be attached to different places with a spring-clip. Thanks to its electric dimmer the nature/technology duality is possible.

As with the exterior version, the tube is made of very light and resistant carbon fibre. Given the important height (2,50m-2,95m), the halogen lamp set upon this tube gently rocks with the flow. Thanks to the nickel-plated steel socket, the light can move freely, which is very important to Nathalie.

Rocking like high grass: the long tubes in carbon fibre, a base stuck into the ground, curved pyrex glass to wave better in the wind …

The same kind as the interior Sol-air but smaller, a reading light. Where does the name come from? Well, in French “comme vous voulez” means “as you want” De lamp is indeed made from coloured light caps. There are three caps but they can be combined in several colours: red, yellow, orange, fuchsia and blue. You choose the colour as you wish. As you want!

The rectangular steel bases of the ‘Eva’ ensure the stability while the carbon fibre tubes bring lightness and flexibility. The light gets its name from E.V.A. material, which forms supple shells when thermally moulded that serve as light shades for the halogen bulbs. Once they’re lit the shells look like china and one can stick his finger in these vegetable-like shells.

This oversized light shade was designed for office use in order to create more warmth and volume. The shade virtually ‘pulled the ceiling down’ to form a warmer space with a very soft light.

Split is exactly the kind of product that fits into today’s essentials: a smart and esthetical object adjustable to all environments. A real hit!

Split is a lamp shade made of, thermally moulded, translucent shells. The assembling of the shells by simple and clever supple bindings allows the object’s form variations. Hence, Split may adjust from 3 to 9 shells and 1 to 4 levels. Attached to a socket by a ring, Split fits to all kinds of lights.
