Surprising Light


French designer Julien Carretero created a series of beautiful, minimal lights, exploring various metals and their finishes. Carretero experimented with aluminium, brass, steel, stainless steel, copper, and bronze, using varying techniques such as mirror polishing, lacquering, brushing, patinas, and more. The results are gorgeous, sculptural objects, some with beautiful lacquered colors, others emphasizing rusted or anodized patinas. All will be shown in Brussels at the Victor Hunt Gallery through September.
