French designer Edouard Larmaraud created the Ariane range of lamps for producers Ligne Roset and Cinna.

The lamps feature a red cable wound around fixings on the metal bases.

The collection includes table, floor and wall lamps.

"Ariane is a range of lamps composed of a plastic lampshade interacting with metallic structures," says Larmaraud. "A long, red cable winds, undulates and really defines the shape of each product."

The lamps were awarded with a Red Dot Design Award 2008.

    without making an object more than it really is, this lamp uses only it’s basic elements to create something different. great!

    so simple and innovative… it’s more difficult to do that than art design
    ( see the triangle of complexity in design)Young french design with Roset is at the top and get logically red dot award …

    thanks Marcus, french designers have something to say different from dutch and british design…. and different from Starck anovist design too…

  • Jose

    It’s just so blunt and boring… No innovation, class or style at all…
