A collaboration between Lambert & Fils and Guillaume Sasseville, Mile offers a variation on the linear suspension, paired down to its simplest, asymmetrical expression, with two lines floating in surprising equilibrium. Direct and indirect light are separated by a 90° pivot, thus marking out space with light. A play on contrasts, Mile is part art installation and part utilitarian light. The use of linear LED technology and the wires clamped into the structure add to the weightless, almost levitating feel of the lamp.
Founded in 2010, Lambert & Fils is a contemporary lighting studio that creates original collections and collaborates with emerging designers around the world. Preserving the bond between design and making, all lighting is handmade in the Lambert & Fils atelier in the heart of Montreal. Through its exploration of new design technologies, Lambert & Fils investigates the many shapes of light—meditating on voids, volumes and the importance of materials as a point of origin. These explorations trace where the unexpected meets the universally poetic, and where humility meets complex design.
