French Studio Haos Muses on 1960’s Minimalism for New Lighting
Chasing what they call the “practical and palpable,” designers Sophie Gélinet and Cédric Gepner are united, personally and professionally. That quest has manifested in Haos, the couple’s new product studio. Their first complete collection finds a muse in 1960’s minimalism paired with contributions from artisans near their Paris office and further afield. The ceramic bases of the 1.03 table lamp and the 2.04 pendant fixture, for example, are hand-thrown by artists in Normandy. Brass mounts are shaped on early 20th–century spinning machines at a family workshop near Paris. Globes from a London glassblower are sandblasted by hand. They are available in four colors and multiple sizes, as well as in coordinating ceiling fixtures and sconces.
