The Papillon Pendant, which was designed by Élise Fouin for French manufacturer Forestier, is a luminous take on the wafting butterfly. Fouin envisioned the design while visiting a lampshade factory, though she chose not to hide its illumination with a traditional translucent shade, leaving the light unmasked by enveloping it in wire. The shades are tiered in three shapes and then twisted to be reminiscent of a butterfly flapping its beautiful wings.
