This new pair of luminaires, Louis et Marie, breaks away from the tradition – although they too, of course, guarantee function at the highest possible technical level. Louis is square, has rounded corners, chamfered edges and straight lines milled into its surface. Marie, with its round forms and opulent floral ornament, interprets rounded decorative elements such as classical ceiling roses.
Together Louis et Marie conjure up fascinating light effects on the ceiling and open up new design opportunities with light: ornaments (from the Latin word ornare "to decorate") have always been used in architecture for the purpose of accentuating, structuring or framing. Incidentally, the luminaires are named after the French king Louis XVI and his wife Marie Antoinette. www.nimbus-group.com
