Influenced by African art and geometry, Isabelle Gilles and Yann Poncelet, founders of Colonel, invite us on a voyage through their joyful, graphic Magic lighting featuring elongated, airy lacquered steel bases topped by Kvadratfabric lampshades in a vibrant palette of colors, rhythms and patterns.
