Coco – Larose Guyon

February 13, 2019

Coco by Larose Guyon, is a unique luminaire fusion of jewellery and light. The hand-blown, ten globe luminaire evokes the suppleness of a string of pearls, paying tribute to the artistic elegance of Gabrielle Chanel, more commonly known as ‘Coco’.

Coco draws inspiration from Chanel’s fusion of jewellery and fashion, when pearls were as likely to be sewn into the fabric of her elegant evening gowns as to be worn around her neck. Handcrafted by local artisans, the luminaire’s ten handblown glass globes form the essence of a pearl necklace, with each luminous jewel connected via flexible junctions. Its flexibility is complemented by counterweights, hooks, ceiling fasteners and accessory rings, fuelling the imagination by enabling a variety of unique configurations adaptable to a multitude of environments and unique spaces.

Using only the highest quality materials, Coco is a functional work of lighting art, handmade by a team of conscientious and meticulous craftsmen who are passionate about the quality of their work. In addition to the flexible geometric configurations offered by the luminaire, a choice of globe tints and finishes, including aged copper, aged brass, satin black and satin nickel, ensures that every installation of Coco by Larose Guyon is a truly unique creation.
