Coco

A tribute by designer Larose Guyon to Gabrielle Chasnel, famously known as Coco Chanel

In the 1930s, Coco Chanel became the first woman to launch a fine jewellery collection. Chanel never left home without her pearls – she used them not only as jewellery, but as accents sewn into her light, diaphanous evening gowns. 

Coco by Larose Guyon evokes that supple, elegant and wondrous intersection of jewellery and light. Like a string of pearls, this lamp’s 10 hand-blown glass globes can be arranged in several configurations to adapt to the setting where it will be admired. The finishing touch for this luminous gem is a counterweight and hook that can be added or moved from one “pearl” to another, providing all the flexibility needed for the lamp to fit its space to perfection. 

Entirely handmade by local artisans, its artistic approach makes Coco a piece of lighting art, bringing finesse, beauty and poetry to any space. From brass to copper to nickel and fossil black, with globes that can be tinted to taste, it offers owners countless ways to possess a unique creation. 

A metaphorical embodiment of the spirit of Paris in the ‘30s, Coco impresses with its lightness rather than its substantial size, leaving the observer awed before the grandeur of the legendary Coco Chanel.
