LV426 refers to the name of the planet visited by the crew in the Alien movie. William Guillon has been obsessed by space and science-fiction ever since he was a child. The universe created by HR Giger and Moebius have had a very strong impact on his vision, and this is his tribute to them. With this creation referring to their work, he wants to make their universe accessible and to arouse curiosity towards this very peculiar aesthetic. In those pieces, one might see tortuous tree branches, or even fruit grapes. In his mind, it’s an interpretation of the Alien’s creature structure.
This collection in all its complexity required several months of development. As in the Sweet Thing collection, each piece is sculpted by hand by the artist before it is cast in bronze in a French foundry.
All the pieces are unique and their shapes, finishes (patina and polish) can be adapted and customized on demand. The lampshades are made in a porcelain workshop in Limoges, the city which historically beholds the higher expertise and skills in this field. Each porcelain cocoon is handmade and gives the structure a mineral aspect. They are all unique and diffuse a soft and warm light to the room. This collection includes horizontals and verticals chandeliers as well as sconce.
