THE CG01: AN ICONIQUE LAMP
“I believe I became a designer, because I was interested in the present,
which is the future and the past out of date.” Christophe Gevers
Designed by Christophe Gevers (1928-2007), this lamp excites aesthetes passionate about beauty and ingenuity.
To call oneself 01, one must be worthy to identify with perfection!
Like a woman’s body, the curve is captivating, the lamp perfectly captures the sensual side, but at the same time the modernist austerity.
A subtle mixture, delicately proportioned, this luminaire is more of a sculpture than a simple lighting, making the CG01 a work of art full of anecdotes.
Christophe Gevers has left an indelible mark on Belgian design with his feeling for materials and his tactile modernism. He is considered one of the most important interior designers of the post-war period.
He favored a warm, comfortable modernism, using noble and durable materials.
He founded his own company Gevers Design and worked as a professor at La Cambre in the decoration and furnishing department.
His work characterizes Belgian design and his creations are now sought after, hats off to the artist, Gevers enjoys the success he deserves!
Placed in 1968 in the restaurant “Le Cap d’Argent” in Brussels, the CG01 designed in a deep and frank red illuminated this brasserie and made this place an emblematic image of Belgian design.
Needless to say that the internationally renowned establishment “Aux Vieux Saint Martin” also integrates the 01 into its restaurant, frequented by great personalities. The Canterbury still bears witness to its unique style, that is by no means outdated.
Today the CG01 is being re-released by the Belgian premium lighting manufacturer axis71, with renowned architects and prestigious institutions subtly and judiciously choosing the appropriate colour.
Undoubtedly, this mythical object will illuminate your interior.
