The Photochrome Suspension Lamp by Jean Couvreur

Like the transparent quality of tissue paper, the bright colors of draping glass hang over the Photochome Suspension Lamp by Jean Couvreur in a way that makes us design aficionados absolutely giddy. Unlike other lamps on the market, Couvreur’s transformation of a headache-inducing fluorescent is a welcomed approach to suspension light fashion.

Draped Glass on a Tubular Fluorescent: The Photochrome Suspension Lamp by Jean Couvreur.

Like a saturated piece of thick fabric hanging on a clothing line, the draped look of colored glass that has been heated and laid over the tubular light creates a heavy effect by suggesting weight. But thanks to the transparency of the glass, it maintains a sheer and feather light  result. Match the colored glass in three to five different colored glass pieces of varying lengths and widths to your interior project as an energy efficient, phenomenal piece of lamp fashion.

The inspiration for the project came to Jean Couvreur likely when he got fed up with the too-bright look of the fluorescent, or neon, bulb. Those who pay attention to the way a room looks and feels would concur that the dread of being in a neon lit room is almost too much to bear. Thanks to this Photochrome Suspension lamp however, and it’s sister design – the Photochrome Table Lamp – that Couvreur also came up with, efficient lighting no longer has us reeling in visual agony.
