TGV By Moustache
LED aluminium table lamp
Aluminium, Polycarbonate (PC)
Designed by Ionna Vautrin, the TGV lamp is the first object from a French train to be published for sale to the home public.
Originally imagined for the new high-speed trains, the TGV lamp was designed by Ionna Vautrin at the SNCF’s request.
As a highlight on the traveller’s trip, this light combines contoured lines with geometric rationality.
The comfortable light and simplicity of the TGV lamp design make it a complicit, affable object that invites the traveller to settle in.
From the platform where it receives the passengers behind the bay windows, and all through the trip, the TGV lamp is an element of domestic character promising “home-like” comfort.
With the character of a home lamp rooted naturally in its genes, the SNCF and Moustache pooled their competence to give birth to a TGV lamp meant to be installed indoors.
Based on the exceptional know-how and excellence of Alsthom and Sésaly, manufacturers of the TGV for SNCF, the home version of the lamp envies nothing of the lamps used in the trains.
Manufactured in injected aluminium using industrial tooling developed for furnishing the new TGVs, the home version of the lamp is in every way identical to those where you settle in during your trip.
The only thing added is ballast in the lamp body, to make it perfectly stable, and a screwing system under the base to fasten it solidly in special arrangements such as for restaurants, hotels or public spaces.
Three colours have been added to the original red and blue used in the trains, to broaden its possibilities of use: khaki, white and anthracite.
