A lighting design studio with an international presence
Historian by training, David Debrinay turned very early to lighting design for shows, which allowed him to combine his passion for the Living Arts and Art History. Curious and eager for new experiences, he has been multiplying works in France and abroad for more than 20 years by designing lights in fields as varied as theater, dance, opera, luxury events, museography or interior architecture. From this transversality mixed with his love of color and travel, he draws his inspiration and a vast aesthetic palette that allows him to put his creativity at the service of all types of artistic projects…
I feel for:
A painting by Caravaggio… the color of a Cornas… a show of Romeo Castellucci… the contrasts of Iceland… In Praise of Shadows… a goal from Eric Cantona… the calm of a freedive… a work of James Turrel… a tuna tartar with chorizo…
Passionate about music, Idriss Benkheira began his discovery of the artistic world by learning to play the drums at the age of 8 and knew very early on that he would make a career in the world of stage performance. After studying the techniques of live performance, he decided to turn to lighting. For 15 years he has been shaping his creative vision alongside artists, festivals or structures such as Alexandre Astier, Electron Geneva or the Nuits de Fourvière. Thus, mastering the technical process from 3D to the light desk, he naturally tends towards design and light scenography with the accuracy of a scene as a creative driving force.
I feel for:
The first notes of Man in the Mirror … the great wave of Hokusai … the symphony of colors … the thrill of a “blackout” … a Balinese journey … the artistic renewal … the nobility of a starry sky … the mystery of a note of eau noire … the timing of a “swop” …
