Solar is a new type of object, a contemporary hearth around which to gather and chat, at home or outside. The surface finishes are different: glossy white or dark wood for the indoor version, with a characteristic rusty and textured effect for the outdoor version.. The hemispherical body, made of polyethylene, is stable even when it is tilted by 15°. The angling determines the quantity of light diffused, allowing multiple effects and atmospheres to be created.

“I’m trying to find an honest, generous path with the idea that, somewhere between the hard economic data, there are users. People.” - Jean-Marie Massaud
Since the beginning of his career (a 1990 graduate of Paris’ ENSCI-Les Ateliers, Paris Design Institute), Jean-Marie Massaud has been working on an extensive range of works, stretching from architecture to objects, from one-off project to serial ones, from macro environment down to micro contexts. Major brands such as Axor, Cassina, Christofle, Poliform, Toyota have solicited his ability to mix comfort and elegance, zeitgeist and heritage, generosity and distinction.
Beyond these elegant designs, his quest for lightness – in matters of essence – synthesize three broader stakes: individual and collective fulfillment, economic and industrial efficiency, and environmental concerns. “I’m trying to find an honest, generous path with the idea that, somewhere between the hard economic data, there are users. People.”
His creations, whether speculative or pragmatic, explore this imperative paradigm: reconciling pleasure with responsibility, the individual with the collective.
