Beginning

Designer, craftsman and lighting editor, Ozone was born in 2000, in Paris, from the vision and imagination of Etienne Gounot and Eric Jähnke. When they met, sitting at neighboring desks in an office where they both worked as engineers, something clicked. They gave up their established careers to give free rein to their creativity. Deeply touched by nature and architecture, Eric and Etienne have made light the spark, the substance of their inspiration.

Their major inspirations are the sun and the sky with their thousand nuances, from cold to warm light, from sharp shadows to soft diffusions, from the uniformity of color to the most subtle gradations. They are also recollections of moments when we are suddenly enveloped in a magical light, unified with the world and our soul.
