Montgolfiers

16 small hand-sewn lanterns, hung from a beautiful piece of old wood

The first hot air balloon flight is considered to have taken place on 5th June 1783, during which the Montgolfier brothers transported on board the following passengers: a sheep, a duck and a rooster.

Their return proved that the atmosphere is not full of poisonous gases and opened up the possibility for human crews.

The lighting object was put together from 16 small hand-sewn lanterns, hung from a beautiful piece of old wood, which I found washed up on the sea shore. It can be switched on by a stylish retro dark brown switch. The little lanterns—just as all other textile parts of the lighting object–are fixed with non-toxic adhesive.
Montgolfiers is the interior lighting object and has an extra low voltage electrical system (SELV), uses 9V.
It is connected to the mains via a 230V adapter. The light is constructed using wires and LED diodes in warm&cold white.
