Éric de Dormael is an unconventional artist, his trajectory far from the beaten track. Trained at the Saint-Luc school in Tournai and at the Atelier Met in Penninghen, he explored many creative avenues before devoting himself to designing luminaires. His exceptional, limited-edition pieces gradually took on monumental proportions. He began working for interior decorators and designers, and in the world of luxury. With passion and rigour, his work progressively freed itself from any utilitarian function, crossing the line from object to work of art, creating veritable light sculptures. Deeply attached to design and pure lines, he places fundamental importance on the architectural structure of each piece. Brass, a noble and pliable material, along with plaster or bronze enable him to make light and shadow meet. Light, poetic and glistening, his works are both material and immaterial.
