Dix heures dix - PERFECT LIGHTING
Dix heures dix is a French lighting manufacturer and designer, who has spent the past 20 years crafting collections whose main purpose is to diffuse “beautiful light”…
Striking a balance between the rigorous approach of industrial design and the richness of artisanal expertise, dix heure dix manages to offer innovative, upscale lighting solutions. After the success of textile collections like Colonne, dix heures dix deliberately chose to explore the use of modern, innovative high-quality materials, like Tyvek®, Dibond® or Corian® for its latest creations.
Blending inspirations drawn from architecture, art, plant life and the world of fashion, the three designers (Catherine Grandidier, Fabrice Berrux and Ludovic Roth) strive to invent narrative lighting where each product tells its own story.
Fabrice Berrux uses pleated fabric, silkscreen glass and stainless steel among other materials to create a softly diffused light, for floor, table, wall and hanging lamps.
LA SUSPENSION collection of pendants in white or coloured pleated fabric is highly original.
CéLESTE is a floor lamp with removable and washable cover in TYVEK®, made out of printed or white polyethylene fibers. It has transparent power cable. Dimmer is available as an option, with specific dimmable compact fluorescent bulbs.
COLONNE are floor lamps in white or coloured, ivory, green, clementine, red, purple, grey and black, pleated fabric. They have black metal foot, grey metal foot, brushed stainless steel foot, wooden foot in ash-tree with a rosewood taint, ebony, rosewood or wenge wood. They have transparent power cable. Dimmer is also available as an option with specific dimmable compact fluorescent bulbs.
PARAVENT are floor lamps in white or coloured, ivory, green, clementine, red, purple and grey pleated fabric. They have brushed stainless steel foot or in different sorts of wood.
Catherine Grandidier focuses on ambiance wall frames and colourful hanging lamps. Her collection urbain is a highly original wall light made out of an aluminium frame with matt lacquered steel squares.
HOLO is a pendant, made of coloured papers within a round diffractive PVC film. It has a 2m, transparent power cable.
L'HOMME QUI COURT is a wall lamp with an optic filter displaying an Edward Muybridge serigraphy on a frame in coated wood. It comes with the designer’s signature and has a electronic transformer without dimmer.
Supporting the work of the designers, the technical team at dix heures dix incorporates the latest advances in lighting to ensure that each product offers “efficient light”.
All lighting delivered by dix heures dix makes the most of LED or compact fluorescent lighting sources, guaranteeing the best light output ratios (LOR), and allowing them to be classified as eco-friendly.
