Arborescence Floor Lamp - Small

$2,122.00
Designed by:  Herve Langlais
Manufactured by:  CVL Lighting

Arborescence is a family of suspension, floor, and table lamps. Its name denotes – in both French and English – the growth associated with a tree.  This overarching metaphor has been visually translated by designer Herve Langlais into a form where three tubular pieces of solid brass either “grow” upward like a tree’s trunk from a disc-shaped base splaying outward like branches or traverse downward from a canopy splaying like a tree’s roots.  Each of these tubular rods cants at an angle away from its stem-like cluster creating a cradle for a cylindrical paper shade.  Each of these three “branches” or “roots” is expressed at a different length – the resulting asymmetry and juxtaposition of materials provides tremendous visual interest.  The Arborescence lamp base is slightly elevated from the floor by the addition of integrated underside cylinders.  This not only creates an unexpected levity within the floor lamp’s overall form but pragmatically provides an elegant “exit solution” for the lamp’s textile cord. Manufactured by CVL Luminaires Contract / CVL Lighting.

The Arborescence floor lamp is available in six versions – three small and three large – the former are noted here.  Each version is available with a choice of finishes; cylindrical DropPaper shade is also available with a choice of color.

Designed in 2014.

CVL Lighting

Proudly sporting its “hand-made in France” tagline, CVL Luminaires Contract offers a range of modular and adaptable lighting typologies for wall, suspension, floor, and surface applications – the juxtaposition of luxe materials with engaging forms underscores all of this French manufacturer’s designs. Each CVL Luminaires design is manufactured entirely by hand at its factory in Angers, France. Whenever a new CVL light fitting is conceived, a precise and closely controlled production process ensues whereby careful dimensional, visual, quality, and standardization checks are performed manually by its craftsmen – this guarantees that each piece of CVL lighting is of the utmost quality. For over five decades, the prevailing spirit of CVL Luminaires Contract has always been the manufacturer’s commitment to a manipulation of materials and forms to engender engaging new forms of illumination. Switch Modern is delighted to present the entire range of CVL on its website – most of which is UL-approved, making it ideal for both residential and contract applications. Similarly, Switch Modern can work with CVL in the design and production of custom applications for its lighting designs.
