Petite Friture Vertigo

Petite Friture Vertigo

The Vertigo lamp is an icon of Petite Friture. Created by the designer Constance Guisset, it aroused the enthusiasm of design professionals. Recognized very early by Rossana Orlandi, this large design chandelier has been included in an anthology of prestigious permanent collections such as the Moma, the CAP and the MAD. But the verdict also came from the public. In addition to its achieved success, pendant lamp Vertigo received the audience award in 2006 at the Villa Noailles.

Vertigo was one of the first very large design chandeliers and largely initiated the reflection on this type of lighting. The ambition was to develop a graphic design pendant lamp with a scale of 6 and ½ feet for the large Vertigo pendant lamp, while being very light and airy to bring movement. An optimistic and generous dialogue with Constance Guisset made it possible to maintain a strong emulsion on materials over time and a fabrication made in France. So that Vertigo would vibrate with the vibrations of the air, the structure was made of fiberglass with ribbons in polyurethane placed by hand. The ribbons give this pendant lamp a wired character. The latter is expressed in the visual of the lamp but also through the thread that it weaves with the spaces it signals. The play of shadows and ribbons of light on the walls reinforces Vertigo's graphic dimension. This aesthetic reflects Petite Friture's own beacons: graphics, geometry, detail and finish.
