Giant desk lamps have escaped from a large office to have fun. They come to rest in the Esplanade Park, behaving as if they had always been there: they change the environment, highlighting a variety of perspectives with their colourful beams of light.
Lampounette is based on a change of scale, whereby desk lamps are magnified into outdoor lamps many metres tall. They were inspired by the world-famous architect lamps which, in enlarged form, now set out to conquer new spaces. The lamps can be up to seven metres high when extended to the maximum. People can also sit on the bases.
The kitsch works of the TILT group have featured in light festivals in locations such as Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates, Lyon in France, Beijing in China and Brussels in Belgium.

TILT is a French artist studio which focuses on the study of light and its interaction with art, architecture and space. TILT seeks to impact on people's perspectives and experiences of a particular place. TILT is inspired by nature and everyday life: the works seek to create a dreamlike realm coloured by humour and poetry.
