WireShade Lighting via @weandthecolor

Marc Trotereau, a London-based designer has created the beautiful WireShade lighting.

“The wireshade project is an interpretation of the making and the use of the lampshade. The traditional making of a lampshade is a flexible and relatively easy process based on brazing metal rods. Marc Trotereau decided to adapt this way of making by creating a jig, which gives the possibility to braze three metal rods together at the same time. This set up enable the production of three-dimensional cubical shapes. The structure is painted or powder coated and then covered with corrugated plastic also known as ‘Correx’. This material is flame retardant and antistatic. The morphology of the correx gives the possibility to clip it to the metal structure. Marc Trotereau developed a flexible process to create shells that can be use as lampshades for every type of wall, ceiling, and corners… The lampshade becomes a sculptural and unique object, which can adapt its shape to any type of space.”

The true definition of ‘mid-century’ modern

It’s not just a structural aesthetic defined by a two-decade span of design.  Read more @TheHourNews.

It’s more than that, a distinctive form of architecture sometimes called “California Contemporary,” mid century modern architecture is usually defined through its clean lines, open floor plans, walls of glass, and the feeling of living within nature. These buildings constructed between the 1940’s through the late 1960’s by innovative architects with their simplistic styles were ahead of their time. Norwalk, Westport, Weston, Stamford, and especially New Canaan all have some very fine examples of this type of architecture currently for sale.

Some of the local pioneers of mid-century modern architecture are John Black Lee, Victor Christ-Janer, George Nemeny, and a group called the Harvard Five; John Johansen, Marcel Breuer, Landis Gores, Eliot Noyes and Phillip Johnson.
