THE IN­NO­VA­TOR: Philippe Malouin

VOGUE Living Australia - - Editor’s Letter -

This was Malouin’s year. The Cana­dian-born, Lon­don-based de­signer showed work across Mi­lan, but out­stand­ing was his Arca light­ing sys­tem for New York’s Mat­ter Made, a cus­tom chan­de­lier that con­trasts the clas­si­cism of curved brass against the moder­nity of a lin­ear form. Small LED bulbs at the tip of each branch cre­ate the il­lu­sion of can­dle flames. For Mar­sotto Edizioni, Malouin cre­ated a mod­u­lar, wall-mounted fur­ni­ture range in white Car­rara or black Mar­quina mar­ble com­pris­ing wardrobe, con­sole and desk. It was a beau­ti­fully un­der­stated play on form, func­tion and lux­ury.
