Coffee, Tea, or Light? – Gilles Eichenbaum

I am off to a seminar this morning, so I leave you with a brief, but beautiful post…

Gilles Eichenbaum is one of my new favorite people, and if there is a God, I will someday have a chance to meet him and say, “Votre lampes sont trop belles pour les mots”.  Or something like that.

Full of whimsy, and an odd pathos, his lamps are made of found materials.

In Eichenbaum’s hands, a cast off pot and a bunch of old spoons transcend their functional forms and become something touching on elegance.  All while avoiding the easy trap of becoming kitsch.

Intended as art as much as object, these pieces are each unique.  Really unique.  And that is why I had to share them with you, faithful readers.  Because at the end of the day, running across work like this is why I love what I do.  i hope you enjoy it too.
