Meet the Makers

Meet The Maker: Mylène Scotto, Designer of Georges, Sauveterre de Béarn

There is something incredibly poetic about Mylène Niedzialkowskis creation. She loves to mix with all materials, from the most flexible to the most recalcitrant, to create objects of special charm. From her Chateau de Meritein, in the Bearn, in the South West of France, she searches diligently for producers who share their ethos and create materials that are as beautiful as they are responsible. We sit down with the designer to hear more about her beautiful and unique pendant lights.

Can you tell us more about the history behind your brand name?

Georges is the saint of the day I was born. I like the fact that it’s a boy old name.

Can you tell us more about how Georges was created?

I started Georges 10 years ago, it evolved with me during this decade. I draw and prototype all the objects and they then takes life in our manufacture based in the South West of France.

How would you describe your lights in one word?

Vegetal inspiration

What is behind the inspiration of your first design?

All that surround us outside. A curve, raw materials, atmospheres…

Do you have a favourite one?

I have a little crush on our carambole

Where do you create your lights?

I draw them at my house and then we create them in our workshop.

What’s the best tip you could give about creating the right lighting at home?

Use your imagination and don’t copy 😉

Have you ever wanted to bring back an object from a hotel or a restaurant? And if so which one? 

A sugar box at the Guggenheim museum of Bilbao!

Any wishes for 2021? 

Continue to grow up but in a more quiet world

The Precious M Size

The Precious M Size

Cretan Malia From £349

Pale la Précieuse is available in size S (diameter 80cm) and size M (diameter 120cm). The "jewel" association of brass and fabric in a floral and airy suspension. With the simplicity of a drop-shaped petal, Pale adds a tribute to the retro ceiling fans of louvered bedrooms. This pendant light plays subtly with light, diffusing a soft light in the room and delicate play of shadows on the ceiling. Its brass hoops give it a full diameter (the petals won't fall in time) and can be adjustable for a more contemporary version.

The Little Carambole

The Little Carambole

Cretan Malia £272

With a vegetal inspiration,  the Small Carambole unfolds like a long leaf in a lush forest on a summer evening. Its all-brass structure gives it a precious and delicate side. Oblong, it captures the light and diffuses it in a soft and muted clarity. When flowers are serenity to the interiors, we want our lamps and suspensions to be the delicacy. Imagined, designed and created with meticulous care; our lamps will underline your volumes and, depending on the room, bring a muffled warmth or bright and colorful.
