Spanish dynamo Nacho Carbonell first attracted a lot of attention – not to mention, patronage by the eminent Rossana Orlandi – three years ago with his papier mâché Evolution collection of love benches. He followed that up with Diversity, a series of desks that incorporate glass shards, hair and granular concrete, which he presented at the Gianfranco Ferré gallery during last year’s Salone del Mobile.

For a new exhibit at the Galerie BSL in Paris, the artist-designer has created a collection of 15 LED lights like no other. Made of epoxy resin mixed with coloured sand and recalling the light-emitting flora, fauna and minerals of the deep blue sea, Luciferase continues Carbonell’s subversive explorations of form and function. His lamps looks almost like petrified organisms discovered on a deserted beach – or the incredibly advanced fixtures made by cave dwellers. The perfect accessories for his Diversity desks.

Luciferase is on display until April 16 at Galerie BSL in Paris.
