A concrete and metal, movable light from a Parisian design studio
The TOTEM light by designer Alexander Dubreuil is intended to be artistic and practical at the same time. While the lamp itself takes the form of a materially-rich abstract sculpture, the peripheral lighting it emits serves as both function and object. TOTEM’s design is characteristic of much of the work emerging from the Paris-based studio, which Dubreuil founded in 2012 after years spent working in various international design agencies. The range of his projects includes industrial design, limited edition pieces, art direction and follow-up on the design of spaces, with an intense focus on the symbolism found of creations.
