The Pulsatil workshop
a new approach to lighting

Pulsatil workshop combines traditional know-how and modern technologies to design exceptional lighting fixtures made in France. Their quest is to perpetuate the art of craftsmanship while modernizing the technical approach to light. Atelier Pulsatil develops many custom-made lighting fixtures for unique projects but also for designer’s and architects’ collections. Their ambition is to make the experience of custom lighting simple and enjoyable. A singular approach approved by Signatures Singulières Magazine.

The keys to a custom contemporary art light

Design by definition combines practicality with aesthetics. The same is true for contemporary lighting. The Atelier Pulsatil has understood the definition of a perfectly realized light fixture provided that the technique is discreet. This is the desire of its founders, namely a successful aesthetic that overshadows the technicality of the object. The two engineers offer technological mastery combined with French craftsmanship. Atelier Pulsatil’s cutting-edge technology and the craftsman’s gesture are thus placed at the service of the designer’s creativity. The Atelier Pulsatil has created many custom and collection lighting fixtures for interior architects and designers: Pierre Yovanovitch, Eric Schmitt, Jouin Manku, Pierre Yves Rochon, Affine Design, Stéphanie Coutas, CSLB Studio… References that also testify to the requirement and the challenge was taken up.

The pulse of artisanal and technical talents with unparalleled know-how

Atelier Pulsatil offers a wide range of different materials and skills. These lighting designers collaborate daily with French artisanal workshops with the EPV label, a guarantee of excellence and exceptional know-how. The Saint-Just glassworks, for example, applies century-old know-how that enhances Pulsatil’s lighting fixtures. Among the Atelier’s partner artisans, there are also founders, bronze workers, locksmiths, marble workers, gilders… Their participation contributes to the French manufacture of refined lighting, the fruit of artisanal gestures. Enough to make the heart of Signatures Singulières Magazine beat.

The challenge of a design and technical lighting

Atelier Pulsatil also brings its mastery of modern technologies, from the design to the assembly of its luminaries. The two founders, engineers, regularly use 3D printing, digital machining, or the development of dedicated electronic boards. The achievements of Atelier Pulsatil illustrate the range of possibilities offered by these creators of custom lighting. The experience and technicality of the workshop allow it to act as a real conductor in the assembly of elements from various crafts. Beyond the design and manufacture, each light represents a challenge, specific to the principle of custom-made. In fine, these exceptional lights illuminate a new approach to French know-how promoted by Signatures Singulières Magazine.
