Trace the light.

Metro is a series of two amber and lake green pendant lights. Each consists of a tubular mouth-blown glass structure, suspended by two black cotton ropes, and a LED neon. Simply nested, the coloured glass elements hold the colourless glass tubes, which receive the neons.
Inspired by metro maps, these lamps form a circuit. Their tubular structures allow the guiding of the electric cable. The transparency of the glass thus makes it possible to follow the light path from the colourless tube to the coloured one. The coloured handles make the changes of direction visible and serve as hooks to the suspension. The design of the lamps evokes urban underground journeys with the different lines, intersections and connections. 
Like a metro map, these suspensions reveal what is usually invisible, underground, they form the map of a coloured light path.
