TILT (Fr) – Pocket

The Pocket pays tribute to an obsolete but charming object many of us knew: old French torches (called "pocket lamps" in French). Reimagined on a massive scale, this giant torch plays with proportion, surprising visitors and shaking up our relationship with scale and size.
Its modern touch can be seen when it lights up, revealing not only the traditional warm white light of torches, but also a kaleidoscope of joyful colours. It lights up the surrounding area with a beam that varies in intensity.

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.
