Studio Marc Trotereau presents ‘Wireshade 2.0’, a modular system made ofconnectors that allows the creation of bespoke lampshades. It results in a collectionof light fixtures that can marry any types of walls, ceilings and corners.
Based on its previous work entitled ‘Wireshade’, Marc Trotereau developed a new version of lamps resulting of its ongoing research regarding the various possibilities of adapting lighting to space.
Marc is interested in the lampshade as an artefact. Even if this object may appeartrivial and common in our daily life, it is an unnoticed and yet familiar object that is an exciting way to shape light. Marc is fascinated by the fact that the in substantiality of the object does not matter. He believes that its strength comes from somethingsimilar to the ‘infra slim’ vision of Duchamp that corresponds to the precise momentthe light touches the skin of the shade.
‘Wireshade 2.0’ is based on a simple assembling process based on a connecting system in order to create ‘shells’. Due to this ductile way of creating structures, Marccan produce a collection of flexible lamps that can adapt to any type of space and situations.
The lampshade becomes sculptural and unique. The object is not only aboutproviding light but is also about transforming the architecture and the perception ofa specific space.
