Roasting Light — Limited edition
Designed for restaurants, the kinetic suspension Roasting Light reinvents with humor the concept of the «rotisserie».
Inspired by the spit-turner, first tool to roast directly the meat over a flame, the installation evokes this primitive and fundamental link between fire and cooking.
Four lines of light, a wink to the utilitarian fluorescent tubes found at the back of kitchens are «skewered» by a polished aluminum structure and slowly rotate in a contemplative loop. The technical parts such as the motor, belts and bearings are designed as aesthetic details and contribute to the raw and mechanical beauty of the piece.
Echoing the reflectors used to diffuse the heat from the spindle turners, an octagon of faceted mirrors completes and enhances the structure, reflecting and spreading the light at the heart of the restaurant’s bustling atmosphere.
