Designed for the bathroom, the Poudrier wall lamp opens and closes to increase or decrease the light, allowing time to get used to the transition from night to day. The light is diffused by a thick glass lens with a wavy surface, inserted in a polished brass box that acts as a reflector thanks to a hinge that is clearly visible.
Although designed for the bathroom, the Poudrier wall lamp can also be used in a hallway or entrance hall.

Poudrier Wall Lamp
French designer born in Nice. His activity is mainly developed between France and Italy.
He studied Applied Arts and Product Design (LTGC, Antibes - La Martinière, Lyon - Boulle, Paris). Philippe Nigro's work is characterised by the connection between experimental research and the pragmatic analysis of the "know-how" of the manufacturers he works with.
Over the years, these experiences have been nourished by the mixture of Franco-Italian cultures and the experience of projects that are always very different. This allows him to evolve between projects of various typologies and scales and to work with companies of different sizes, prestige and activities, thus favouring a diversity of responses to very different aspects of design.
A freelance designer since 1999, he began his career alongside Michele De Lucchi, with whom he participated in numerous product, furniture, lighting, interior architecture, event and scenography projects. Some prospective projects are supported by the VIA (Valorisation de l'innovation dans l'ameublement).
He collaborates with Ligne Roset, Cinna, De Castelli, Piba Marmi, Skitsch, Serralunga, Artuce, Caimi Brevetti, Venini, Foscarini, DePadova, Baccarat, Moleskine, Driade, Saint Luc, CELC, Lexus, le Mobilier National, Hermès. Some of these projects are in the collections of the Centre Pompidou and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, such as Twin-Chair, T.U, Confluence.
In 2014, he was named Maison & objet's Designer of the Year. His activity is also developing towards scenography. He was in charge of the 7th edition of the Triennale Design Museum in Milan, "Italian design beyond crises", and then for Lexus, a Japanese car manufacturer, at the Milan trade fair in 2015, for which he designed the brand's new international stand concept in 2017. In 2016 he created the Ultralin installation, Place des Vosges, for the European Confederation of Flax and Hemp.
