ABOUT

LairiaL crafts wood lightings. Inspired by the light of the forest, our lamps create sensory atmospheres. Their timeless and pure design fits any interior design.

Each lamp is made to measure, either for residential or for public spaces. We sell our lamps directly, via prescribers, and in selected showrooms.

Design

Story

  • Corinne Puyo created LairiaL, thinking about her grandfathers, owner of sawmill and resin in the Landes in mind. She carries the wood spirit.
  • Inspired by the sensory atmosphere of the Landes forest of her childhood, she wishes to recreate this very warm special atmosphere with the light of LairiaL lamps.
  • L’airial is the Gascon name given to man-made clearings in the Landes forest. LairiaL the brand is the witness mark of unique light made by shadows and light effects.

Know-How

  • Unlike other materials, wood is alive.
  • High end know-how, neo-marquetry is the art of shaping thin sliced wood in volume
  • Three years of research and testing to develop the technique to ‘tame’  wood carefully and gently.
  • How can we work with wood, in the direction of the thread or against thread, where is its inflection point… LairiaL can thus contradict the great French writer Jean de la Fontaine’s fable (‘The oak and the reed’): With LairiaL the wood bends but does not break.

Design

  • LairiaL creates its collections with designers in a new elegance made of aesthetics and functionality.
  • Wood does not wear out. It takes patina. Our exclusive Plug & Light system allows our luminaires to have several lives.
  • Our refined design and timeless style fit any interior design. The lamps  are self-sufficient and sign the decoration, without ostentation or banality, switched off as on.

Slow-made

  • Initiated by the ‘INMA’ (National Institute of Crafts Arts) and ‘Le Mobilier National’, the ‘slow made movement’ advocates the economic and emotional longevity of objects, respect for time and sustainable production.
  • LairiaL is part of this movement in collaboration with sensitive and committed designers.
  • Every LairiaL lamp is unique. It carries with it the story of the tree that gave it life.
