Immersing lamp designs in raw settings, these scenic photos flaunt the beauty of both nature and technological development. The series captures organic beauty in a Maldivian setting, while also focusing on the stunning qualities of new man-made light.

The photos were taken by Mai-Linh and directed by Olivier Guyot Foltzer for a French architecture and design-focused magazine. While the sky, sun and the sea are beautifully lit, so are the lamp designs featured in the photos. The titles of the lamps are related to nature -- translated from French, they are named 'Cloud', 'Totems', 'Fire', 'Birds.'

Many of the lamp installations are made of transparent PVC, blending in with their raw surroundings while glowing. The one installation called 'Cloud' is filled with air, which all the more reflects the theme of nature.
