Concept
The Epilith lamps series seeks to evoke the magical sensation that one can feel when seeing a plant flourish on an arid support.

Resembling flowering wild thorny plants emerging from unexpected minerals, the lamps speak of our domestic spaces from which nature is tangibly fading.

Each lamp is a unique composition of three different synthetic materials shaped by experimental techniques inspired of natural formation of matter. Mineral stratifications, metal nugget formations and semi translucent wobbly substances, the compositions result from an intuitive approach to creating objects, reimagining a natural yet supernatural growth in a prospective manner by letting matter grow and take form freely.



    Designer image

    Elissa Lacoste (b. 1994, France) is an experimental designer who lives and works in Burgundy, France. She studied at Ecole Supérieure d’Art et Design Saint-Etienne and Latvian Art Academy in Riga. She obtained her MA at Design Academy Eindhoven in 2018 in the Netherlands.

    Hands-on and instinctive, her work stems from her quest for the wild, the inexplicable and the sensorial within contemporary boundaries. Unconventionally textured and vibrant, her sculptural pieces linger between the real and the surreal while maintaining a hint of functionality. In her work, she evokes an otherness to reflect upon our relationship to our physical environment, be it anthropogenic or natural.

    Her organic forms often provoke a cognitive dissonance like her monolithic stone-like silicone pieces.
    Fascinated by material abilities and not bounded to a specific material, she looks into various techniques but prefers to experiment intuitively, without resorting to traditional craft knowledge as a first step.

    In this way she favors serendipity and encounters surprising results that she develops into her own techniques and methods of shaping matter and creating objects.
