By Dominique Perrault and Gaëlle Lauriot-Prévost
The architect Dominique Perrault and the designer Gaëlle Lauriot-Prévost designed this collection with the objective of it being utterly original, almost indescridable, nearly unbreakable, timeless and completely durable.
The IN THE TUBE collection comprises strong ideas, forms that are both free and constrained, and it comes in several lengths, diameters and colours.
Made in borosilicate glass and closed with aluminium stoppers sealed in silicon, the mountings are in stainless-steel which allow it to be used indoor and outdoor, as a suspension as well as on a wall or ceiling-mount.
IN THE TUBE diffuses a soft, filtered light that can be oriented by the movable mesh filter or by a reflector whose colour determines the light given off : stainless steel for a silver light, anonised aluminium for copper or gold.
The IN THE TUBE collection of high-performance tubes could be just as easily at home in a James Bond spy kit as it could in a Jules Verne rocket.
