Occasionally, it happens that & rsquo; we have the & rsquo; impression of being in a movie, live a little enchanted, driven by a magician who makes you discover his universe…
A few weeks ago, I hurried d & rsquo; go to an appointment, nose in my hood to protect me from the cold. I turn rue Flatters, always a bit pressed and then crosses a small shop light that m & rsquo; s a & rsquo; air straight out d & rsquo; a fairy tale. I am so amazed by the window I push the door out of curiosity and came face to face with Mr. Ara, the owner.
I'm a little bit shy, but m & rsquo; welcomes with a big smile then that & rsquo; something he celebrated with friends in the & rsquo; back room. J & rsquo; & rsquo have the d & rsquo impression being in a tale of rue Broca (that n & rsquo; is not far).
I asked him to take pictures board and especially that & rsquo; he tells me that & rsquo; he makes in his cave of wonders before running off to my appointment – delighted.
J & rsquo; Fabien've then dragged with me a few weeks later to spend a very nice moment.
Mr. Ara is passionate, it represents by itself the technical heritage of & rsquo; lighting France. He m & rsquo; may want a little for all the approximations that follow…
It all began in 76, Frankfurt, Mr. Ara 26 years and he finds a lamp on the sidewalk. He brings her home and then repairs that & rsquo; n & rsquo it; yet all the knowledge in this field. He discovers that the flea markets offer little lamps and begins to propose.
After a holiday in France and a romantic encounter, he decided to s & rsquo; install at home and decide d & rsquo; to open his shop lamps various fuels from the late eighteenth century to the early twentieth, repair and recover the missing pieces in order to restore the lamps in their original form.
Few people have this type of work because it involves too many trades. His shop then something d & rsquo; single.
It sells d & rsquo; antique lighting that & rsquo; he repaired or restored to his shop and home collects the British oil lamps from the late 19th, période Oscar Wilde. He advises cinema, for parts and documents for exhibitions, and, it welcomes the curious in his shop with great kindness… A real little museum of the & rsquo; lighting.
I can not tell you all that & rsquo; he showed us in his shop back, operating pulleys, oil wicks and oil lamps before our very eyes (j & rsquo; always have the & rsquo; air corny when you introduced me pretty things). But I advise you & rsquo; go check it out and maybe one day, d & rsquo; buy the famous lamp that sits in his shop since 15 years without anyone s & rsquo; are interested…
