Dorval is a lighting collection layered in history, a subtle interplay between contemporary and vintage industrial design. It is the retail-ready version of a prototype pendant originally designed by Cluzel/Pluchon (Lille, France)—edited and exclusively produced in Lambert & Fils’ Montreal atelier
Drawing equal inspiration from airport runway lights and the essential qualities of a chandelier, the result is a light both confrontational and intriguing—one which poses an immediate invitation to play.
Cluzel/Pluchon is a design firm led by Sébastien Cluzel and Morgane Pluchon. The studio’s central intention is to spark joy and curiosity through imaginative approaches to form. Interrogating materials, shape, colour, and pattern, Sebastien and Morgane create designs which invoke memories and redefine the expectations of everyday objects. Cluzel/Pluchon launched in 2015 at Salone Satellite in Milan, and is currently based in Lille, France.
Lambert & Fils is a design studio specializing in handmade lighting, founded by Samuel Lambert. Internationally renown for its poetic approaches to contemporary lighting, the studio is also centred around the bond between design and making. All lighting is conceived and hand-assembled in Lambert & Fils’ atelier in Montreal, Canada. The result is a portfolio which is at once unexpected and accessible—it lives in the space where humility meets complex design.
