The Alumine is a light plant whose stems reach for the sky in search of light. It opens its many petals, which curve delicately under the sun's warmth, into the air to form a pure aerial flower.
Though it is a sparkling flower by day, it is not until night falls that the Alumine reveals the iridescent beauty of its colours and offers enraptured passersby a gentle glow under which they can come and warm up.
Created in 2001 on the initiative of two lighting engineers, Francois Fouilhé and Jean-Baptist Laude, TILT is an organisation that seeks to "enlighten lighting" from an artistic standpoint. Often put in service of a work of art, light illuminates without being illuminated itself, and it is our view of light that TILT wants to change. An inexhaustible source of inspiration, light offers a plethora of artistic possibilities awakening TILT's imagination and guiding their creations which subtly combine dreamlike atmospheres and the industrial world, salvage materials and advanced techniques, responsible energies and technical breakthroughs.
