Concept

Sorcier is a wall light inspired by the ritual Ngil masks of the Fang tribe in Gabon. The light diffuses through the perforations in the mask and shines upward in a graphic and gentle way. It changes personality depending on the combination of colors, textures and perforated patterns, which vary in each version. The designer spent a lot of time in Central Africa with the Fang who still are the main ethnic group in Guinea and spread across Gabon and Cameroon. She drew her inspiration from the ritual objects and the strong graphic identity before combining it to modern manufacturing to create this collection. More than a light, Sorcier is a sculpture.
