France contains many treasures. Deeply hidden underground, or just in front of our eyes, time helped us to tame them and include them into our territories’ identity.
We defend our geographic origin with pride. Nosqua was born by the association of three different personalities coming from three French regions. This is why our project aims at honouring French territories. The materials of the lamps of this range were chosen not only for their aesthetic and technical qualities, but also for the important symbolic the inhabitants in our regions give to them.
Lava belong to Clermont’s region’s history, architecture, and identity. Sancy highlights the meeting between lava flow of the Puy de Sancy and glass. Though both materials are particularly rich in silicate, their contrast is striking. Lava, dark and heavy, embraces this glass disk light and transparent at the same time. But once one lights the lamp, the magic happens; glass spangles with shiny dots like stars above a mountain. A halo then dances above the lamp, driving the spectator in its universe.
The lava base of Sancy was extracted and modelled by hand by Andésite company.
