- Description

2017, Loos FR

With the nursery team of Palliative Care department of the Loos-Haubourdin Hospital group (GHLH)

In Palliative Care unit, I met doctors who were there to support patients in their end of life. Patients rooms stays impersonal if families don’t help. Over several weeks, I worked with two patients to select lighting for their rooms. These lights brought a domestic warmth to their white rooms and became pilot lights for their last days.

« Like in all theatre, every scenes deserve a setting. We are all looking for the light. We just have to work a bit hard and to take the time to find it. And finally it’s not complicated : The proof ! In other words, we have to believe in it and know what we are looking for » Giuseppe, Gray floor lamp with pink shade
