The Matin Flush Mount offers a contemporary yet poetic design, with a construction that combines visual delicacy with physical robustness. The lamp comprises a painted steel bracket for mounting onto the wall or ceiling, and is covered by a pleated cotton shade in two sizes with different colour options. The light source is two retrofit E14 bulbs that create a soft and ambient light.
Inga Sempé is a French designer who lives and works in Paris. A graduate of the Ecole Nationale Superieure de Création Industrielle (ENSCI) in Paris (1993), she also took up a scholarship at the Villa Medici, Académie de France in Rome (2000 - 2001). She was awarded the Red Dot Design Award in 2007. Her work is known for a lightness of touch, for a strong personality and for a particularly tactile nature. The idea of everyday use is at the centre of Sempé’s approach and she often seeks out materials with special properties to answer the need of a daily function. For HAY, she has created the idiosyncratic accessories Letter Box, Pinorama and Ruban.
