The range – which will be unveiled at Maison&Objet in Paris – includes pendant lamps with circular details, lights that hang together in clusters and wallpaper that takes inspiration from architectural details.

French design brand Petite Friture plans to show the collection among an installation of mirrors and brightly coloured geometric panels, designed to emphasise the pieces' connection with optical art.

Included in the range is French-Austian duo Celia-Hannes' Kling lighting, which pairs bell-shaped shades with anthracite brass rings. The lamps come in several different table and pendant versions, attached to a single circle or to an arched support that contrasts shades in different shapes and sizes.

Petite Friture – which was established in 2009 to champion the work of young French designers – often adopts a playful approach to its products, previously launching sausage-shaped lamps and sofas covered in cushions designed to look like giant pebbles.

The brand demonstrated its love of mid-century earlier in the year, when it showed a new furniture collection against a backdrop styled on a vibrant, modernist home.
