The Beaubien Light is a Divider-Like Piece Composed of Tubes and Bulbs

It might not be until you consider this screen lamp that you'll realize how most lights are accented by forms in fairly even three dimensions. Called the Beaubien, this illuminator has been manufactured as a large and flat object, inspired by Chinese folding screens.

Lambert & Fils Studio used tubular metal components to sculpt a rounded rectangular frame with straight and L-shaped sections that hold frosted lightbulbs of various sizes. These are pointed up, down and sideways for a dynamic composition that serves as art and illumination combined. The piece can be supported by a stand, fastened to the wall, or even suspended as a pendant lamp.

The creation of this screen lamp demonstrates the great potential of designing outside of archetypal forms. With this, practical products can double as decoration.
