Nothing short of a miracle with this balancing act: a fibreglass structure and polyurethane ribbons combined together in 2010 to give life to Petite Friture’s first iconic piece – Vertigo. Be it like the dizzying heights of Hitchcock fame, or the hypnotic depths of an op-art illusion, or a “forest dwelling-lampshade” as described by Constance Guisset, Vertigo is a living, moving mix of lines and shadow that takes you under its protective, hypnotic cover…HideRead more
What better than a table to bring people together? The tried and tested recipe has once again hit its mark with a Succession of porcelain table-ware that brought together designers Färg & Blanche, craftsmen from Revol – specialists in moulded porcelain – and Ido Garini from Studio Appétit, who joined the table in September 2016 for the collection’s launch.HideRead more
Linen sheets gently billowing in the fresh air as they hang loosely off tightly strung clotheslines… Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance delves deep into memories of holidays in the countryside, playing with drapes of brushed-brass lace to paint with light – constructing wall, suspension, reading, and standing lamps for any setting.HideRead more
What baloney !
Quite the silly sausage! What started out life on a butcher’s hook in a New York deli, now hangs proudly from the ceiling as a light fitting in our collection. A whimsical creation straight from the mind of Sam Baron who took his original work – made for Sight Unseen – and morphed it into a Petite Friture suspension light. Fuel your appetite with a single bite… or enough to feed an army.HideRead more

Large Pendant lamp
VERTIGO is, in the words of its designer, a “den lamp”. It is simultaneously ethereal and graphic, adapting to both large and small spaces where it creates its own intimate space. With its ultra light fiberglass structure, stretched with velvety polyurethane ribbons, this pendant lamp fascinates as it comes to life swaying in the soft air currents that surround it.
Large Pendant lamp
The Australian duo designers Daniel · Emma signed CHERRY a simple and minimalist pendant lamp ; an aluminum cone with a bottomed sphere. They manage to create a subtil light, increased by the plexiglass and the shimerring CHERRY.
Armchair with armrests
In 2015 POOL designed the GRID Daybed, in reference to the Bauhaus style. In 2016 POOL developped the concept and transformed GRID into an all-modular system by creating basic modules. A simple armchair, a corner armchair, a stool and coffee table now join the range to complement the two seater sofa. All be connected by an attaching system. Each element retains the identity of the original daybed, a strapped wooden structure help up by a black tubular steel leg, all topped with geometrically patterned square or round fabric leather cushions.
Inspired by the weightlessness of "laundry billowing on Mediterranean balconies", Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance designs MÉDITERRANÉA, a series of lights in brushed brass and LED. Resting on a light structure, the cloth of metal sculpts and diffuses the light through the lively and geometric pattern. This symbolism is also applied to suspension, wall, reading and standard lamps.
Hand blown in a mold, TIDELIGHT is a lamp made in series in which each and every copy is unique. The textured glass, which is reminiscent of car industry codes, swathes the light bulb creating a diffused and warm light. The thick glass allows this lamp to be positioned on either the floor or on furniture, the stability being maintained by the square cork base.
PING originates from a Soviet tin toy, a penguin, placed in his grandparents' food cupboard, and who, in the mind of the then little boy, was monitoring his every move. Back then, Andras was 5. The child's fear morphed into a sweet memory, and he sculpted this collection. As he was creating prototypes, the shapes became more refined and the PING family was born. PING is not only a series of 4 containers, they're also company for life.
Side table ISO-A
With these two side-tables ISO-A (round) and ISO-B (square), POOL studio reaffirms its hyper graphic style. Each one of these tables taken individually highlight a pattern, the two tables presented together create a new one. Their superposition gives birth to a"moiré"effect, and the pattern becomes alive.
Designed by Constance Guisset, NUBILO is a sofa and armchair series in which the multiplication of cushions evokes the image of a cloud.

Attached to the sofa structure by elastics, they can be moved and positioned according to desires.
