Embrun

Embrun is the new lighting collection designed by Etienne Gounot & Eric Jähnke, co-foun- ders of Ozone. It celebrates the 20th anniversary of their company. Embrun is primarily composed of a vertical sconce, a pendant light and a large square chandelier.
While retaining Ozone’s clean and precise style, Embrun aims at a new level of elegance and mystery. Its name – sea spray in English – evokes light, nature and time.

White Onyx was chosen by the two designers for its unique light diffusion property and for its spellbinding texture. Like a stream it is sometimes bubbling, sometimes fluid and always translucent. Besides, Onyx is said to bring along confidence and protection.
To craft it carefully, Ozone collaborates with Les Ateliers Saint-Jacques, a famous French Artisan specialized in heritage renovation and exceptional interior design projects. They select, cut and finish this delicate stone like nobody else.

And I will be facing the sea
Which will come bathing the pebbles.
Caresses of water, wind and air
And of light. Of immensity

The geometric shape of the Onyx diffuser is softened by elliptic rounds, as if polished by a slow marine erosion or secular footsteps on a church forecourt. Time is suspended, like the sprays of the sea or of the memories.
The diffuser is in visual balance on a clean-lined structure made of blackened brass, evoking a medieval assembly.

The invisible complexity of the internal structure firmly holds the fixture and diffuses a homogenous light, surprisingly filling up the stone volume. The magic happens.
To refine the atmosphere, Etienne and Eric have embedded the latest lighting technology of dynamic white which follows the color of the daylight. Embrun’s light is both generous and soothing.

Gounot & Jähnke

First and foremost, Ozone is the story of a friendship. Etienne Gounot and Eric Jähnke were just 25 when they met, and few years later they founded Ozone in 2000. Combining magic, architecture and technology, light was their inspiration. Since then, the two founders have specialized in lighting design, composing a bold geometry that is sometimes classic, modernist or minimal. To reach the highest quality they aimed at, the two designers established their own workshop in Paris, developping a specific savoir-faire. Ten years ago they opened their workshop to several collaborations with renowned architects and designers, in order to create an exceptional lighting collection.
