Location: Framwelgate Waterside
Paying homage to the iconic office desk lamp, but giant size…
An oversized version of a world-famous piece of home / office design gives the humble desk lamp the opportunity to conquer new spaces and illuminate the public realm with its strong coloured light. Lampounette will transform a dark area of Durham into a new warm living room.

The French artistic duo behind Lampounette focuses on the exploration of light and its interplay with art, architecture and space. TILT’s work takes in all aspects of light art, whether temporary interventions or permanent installations, with the aim of changing our view and experience of familiar urban landscapes. Inspired by nature or objects of everyday life, its works create a dreamlike universe using humour and poetry.
