Technological and futuristic, Soleil Noir is a suspension lamp with an organic form in moulded polyurethane foam, whose LED light source is hidden inside a disk that generates homogeneous diffused, indirect lighting. Supported by a single asymmetrical cable, it keeps its balance thanks to the thicknesses of the body, functioning as a slim, aerial lighting element that conveys brightness with discretion and elegance. It is equipped with an avant-garde optical system to guarantee uniform light flow on the diffuser. An object that defies the laws of physics, thanks to technology that permits a design bordering on the impossible.
- Moulded polyurethane foam
- Width: 62.5 x 120 cm / 24.6 x 47.2 Inch

Luceplan was founded with the objective of creating and producing interior and exterior lighting and to enhance the quality of living. Energy saving is top priority. Embracing the environmental compatibility of their whole operation – from choice of materials to the manufacturing process, from product durability to product maintenance. If an object is to last, it needs to be beautiful as well as technologically sound. But a long-lasting product also offers better environmental compatibility and it outlives fashions. Formed in 1978, Luceplan’s history is marked by well-defined constant – experimentation, research and quality and by a philosophy focused on creating “beautiful items for the public at large”.

- Odile Decq
Odile DecqOdile Decq set up her own office just after graduating at La Villette in 1978 while studying at Sciences Politiques Paris where she completed a post-graduate diploma in Urban Planning in 1979. International renown came quickly; as early as 1990 she won her first major commission: the Banque Populaire de l’Ouest in Rennes. The numerous prizes and publications that distinguished the building underlined the emergence of a new hope directly born from the punk rebellion which turned old conventions upside down. By questioning the commission, the use, the matter, the body, the technique and the taste Odile Decq’s architecture offers a paradoxical look, both tender and severe on today’s world. She was awarded with a Golden Lion in Venice in 1996. Since then, Odile Decq has been faithful to her fighting attitude while diversifying and radicalizing her research. She completed the MACRO (Museum for Contemporary Art in Rome) in 2010, the Opera Garnier’s restaurant in Paris in 2011 and just completed the FRAC (Museum of Contemporary Art in Rennes) last July 2012.
