I.Rain Helene - Customizable

by Blackbody

Price On Application

The I.Rain Helene stems from the collaboration between Thierry Gaugain for Blackbody and the world famous French ceramic company Haviland.
The I.Rain can be entirely customisable: its measurements, shape, number of pixels and finishes for both the canopy and the pixels - everything can be adapted to suit any need.
The I.Rain is the best known OLED suspension designed by Thierry Gaugain for Blackbody.
This composition can be adapted in size, height and number of OLED in order to fit to any project.
The I.Rain includes both a range of standard lights having from 18 to 137 pixels, as well as infinitely customisable lights which can be adapted for any space: stair wells, showrooms, lobbies, receptions, living rooms, hallways etc.

OLEDs organic light-emitting diodes form 2 mm thin luminous surfaces. They belong to the family of semi-conductor lighting sources just like LEDs, which are commonly used for outdoor lighting and automobiles. However, OLEDs rely on organic substances such as carbon and hydrogen to emit light. OLED lighting solutions give rise to a new use for light. Long-lasting (50,000 hour life), ultra flat, glare-free, and heat-free, these luminous panes are reinventing home lighting.
Light becomes a fully functional material, which adopts an endless variety of forms or colours, enabling architects as well as designers to explore innovative and personalized approaches. As such, it allows lamp designers to associate lighting with visual and tactile senses, bringing life to their creations.

The I.Rain Helene is available in 3 standard versions: Helene Light & Porcelain (or Helene Montgolfiere 145), Helene 61 and Helene 37
Customisable - please enquire for more information
