“Marie-Louise,” from Sander Mulder

Sander Mulder loves PMMA.  That is a fact.  Frankly, I love that he loves PMMA, because with fixtures like the Josephine and Therese in his rep, it shows some diverse knowledge of material and how it reacts and interacts with light.

Enter, the Marie-Louise. A table lamp with the same dimmable fluorescent source and color inserts that the Josephine and Therese lamps exhibit.  From Sander Mulder’s product page for Marie-Louise:

Made from 16 transparent contours illuminated by a fluorescent bulb, this table lamp provides a modern reincarnation of the traditional ambient lamp.

Through the use of special materials and accurate CNC milling techniques, not only the hood section, but the whole body of this fixture emits a magic light.

Together with floor lamp ‘Josephine’, and chandeliers ‘Therese’ and ‘Therese XL’ this sophisticated design is part of a series of unique lighting fixtures, which are guaranteed eye catchers in any interior.

I think that Sander Mulder might be my “Designer of the Month,” if I had such a category.  Hmm…

“Therese,” A Chandelier by Dave Keune and Sander Mulder

In the same vein as the Josephine PMMA lamp, Keune and Mulder have another beautiful piece in their respective repertories – the Therese chandelier.  Keune and Mulder do great things with PMMA – there’s another product being reviewed as well in a few days made of their PMMA-cut configuration – a table lamp, the Marie-Louise.  Both Dave Keune and Sander Mulder have this product on their sites.

What I understand about these PMMA fixtures is that there is also a color filter insert for the inner dimmable fluorescent source, which could be quite fun.  A suggestion I might make for them is to produce a set of color correcting filters for random occasions, or for people suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder.  No matter the occasion, these are beautiful pieces.
