After working twenty-five years in communication and advertising, Louis-Marie Planquette began creating his "CENEPUL" (This Is Not A luminaire) from recycled objects‚ in an atmosphere of simplicity‚ humour‚ poetry & balance... Today, having received numerous awards (2nd prize SEMA 2000 Discovery Award Maison & Objet 2001 competition winner Gil "Light and Creativity 2003" ...) its unique and bright rooms, with a very personal universe, conquered buyers on five continents. His words: simplicity, humor, poetry, balance.
“ Fascinated by explosion of scientific creativity, particularly accelerated since the nineteenth century, my work with recovered goods demonstrate by the object the Lavoisier’s precept. I try to renew connection weakened by too big speed forgetful of previous generations, without which our knowledge of today and tomorrow cannot be.
All «graphic» objects attracts my eye and my hand : photographic, cinematographic, typingraphic, médicalgraphic, and everything which has, more or less, a scientifigraphic connotation that I prepare electrigraphically.
Would I have in a hundred years the same inspiration facing todays objects ? ... We'll see ... But please, don't be angry if I tempt to pass one day to another step of my path.” LM Planquette
