The two-part sculptural lamp ‘Echo’ makes light and bronze the material embodiment of two people in love. The lamp speaks to our intimacy, its rounded shapes evoke the masks behind which we could have hidden ourselves but which, here, are willingly facing each other. Two rounded shapes, a light source and a reflector, seem to dance and embrace each other, symbolizing the idea that love is stronger when it shines on the other. Together, they become one and create a magnificent glow.
Inspired by the shapes of customary and traditional objects from the West African cultural heritage, Maison Intègre creates original, imaginative designs. By revisiting the region’s traditional crafts and inviting designers and artists to partake into a creative adventure inspired by the brand’s spirit, the ancestral know-how of bronze casting takes on a new life. Ambre Jarno, founder of Maison Intègre, spends most of her time in Burkina Faso as her relentless hands-on approach is crucial to the design and production of each piece. Her strong commitment to local artisanship, combined with an array of unique collaborations, is at the core of creating bronze objects that are utterly contemporary, yet exquisitely traditional.
