MARTA BAKOWSKI

SORCIER

wall lamp

2016

 

Marta, what was the original inspiration for the Sorcier ?

 

A LIGHT WITH A FACE

Sorcier is a wall light inspired by the ritual Ngil masks of the Fang tribe in Gabon. The light diffuses through the perforations in the mask and shines upward in a graphic and gentle way. It changes personality depending on the combination of colors, textures and perforated patterns, which vary in each version.

The designer spent a lot of time in Central Africa with the Fang who still are the main ethnic group in Guinea and spread across Gabon and Cameroon. She drew her inspiration from the ritual objects and the strong graphic identity before combining it to modern manufacturing to create this collection. More than a light, Sorcier is a sculpture.

 Marta is a French designer of Polish origin. She graduated from Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Arts in London, before she joined Hella Jongerius' team in Berlin for almost two years.

 

She finally comes back to Paris in 2013 and launches her own design studio where she imagines objects that celebrate color and material with simple and graphics shapes.
