Anglet, France – For several years now, The Gill Corporation-France (TGC-France) has collaborated with and supplied honeycomb to Vincent Poujardieu, a furniture and lighting designer. Vincent Poujardieu uses our honeycomb for his creations and in particular for lamps, floor lamps and chandeliers in several of his lighting collections.
The NIDA collection is the result of a collaboration between designer Vincent Poujardieu and TGC-France. In 2019, Vincent Poujardieu decided to research and develop the honeycomb structure for lighting applications. The origin of the first NIDA luminaire collection is inspired by a honeycomb in its natural state. Each NIDA creation is composed of a structure of aluminum honeycomb slices in different sizes, with a gold surface finish. The polygons create a subtle, kinetic diffraction of light. The first NIDA lamps, imagined in sculptural dimensions, were limited editions of 8. They have been a great success since their launch in 2019, which has led to the development of a collection of new pieces, which today are presented by Galerie Gosserez in Paris.
Vincent Poujardieu is also introducing 2 new collections, Bee White and ONID, as well as a new chandelier design, the Bee Circle.
Several recent events reflect Vincent Poujardieu’ s growing international reputation:
