The Boucle and Knokke light sculptures were designed by the French artist Eric de Dormael for the brand DCW editions. With their original and intriguing shapes, they serve as a discreet and delicate source of light, as well as a real object of decoration.
Three thin brass rods rise from a black metal base. With Boucle, these rods form interlacings in the manner of a labyrinth, ending in three ears of luminous wheat of different height. With Knokke, the masts carry reflectors in the shape of a house roof.
Thanks to their built-in LEDs, Boucle and Knokke spread a soft, warm and romantic light reminiscent of the glow of a candlelight. Their wireless format allows them to be installed in a wide variety of locations – on a table, a counter or a dresser –, and can be moved with great ease. Their battery is rechargeable thanks to a USB cable, now universal. A 20-port charger is available as an option.

Éric de Dormael
Éric de Dormael is a French sculptor, born in 1951. Trained at the École Supérieure des Arts in St Luc de Tournai, then at the École Supérieure d'Arts Graphiques – Penninghen, he has been drawing and working for nearly 20 years within Ombre Portée.
He designs and produces unique works, made of brass or stainless steel wire, born of an encounter between light and architectural forms. He pushes the research on the luminous effects to its climax: shadows, reflections, patina ... and integrates the light sources into his sculptures in order to transform them into decorative elements. His interlacings, structured or random, play with form and counter-form to create shapes and shadows marked with great delicacy.
The drawing holds a primordial place in his work and is at the origin of each creation. Each idea is first worked in pencil, both for Ombre Portée and for his personal work. His work also feeds on a multitude of influences born from the observation of architecture, nature and atmospheric effects.
He strives to create images, impressions, sensations of light, and to create, from these games of light, poetic objects characterized by their lightness, fluidity of form and transparency.
