Mouille Style Floor Lamp

Known primarily for his work as a designer of lighting fixtures, Serge Mouille (1922-1988) received a master silversmith diploma from the School of Applied Arts in Paris. In 1945 Mouille became a teacher at the School of Applied Arts and opened his own metalworking studio. At that point, his design commissions were mostly for handrails, chandeliers and wall sconces. In 1953 Jacques Adnet hired him to design lighting fixtures, an art to which he devoted the rest of his life. He also claimed his lighting fixtures were “a reaction to the Italian models, which were beginning to invade the market in 1950,” and which he considered “too complicated.” Mouille established the SCM (Société de Création de Modèles) in 1961 as a way to encourage young and emerging lighting designers.

Clean, simple lines define the equine elegance of the Mouille Style Floor Lamp. Tapered legs create a triangular base supporting a long slender neck on which a shade pivots and illuminates in many directions. Available in black and white, it stands 58 3/4” high. 1-60 watt Incandescent Medium Base bulb is recommended.

Prouve Style Jib Light  
Prouvé Style Jib Light

Jean Prouvé (1901-1984) is considered one of the greatest French designers of the 20th century. He was once quoted as saying, “never design anything that cannot be made”. Born into an artistic family in Nancy, France, he trained as a metal smith before attending engineering school in his hometown. In 1923 he began producing modern metal furniture of his own design as well as collaborating with some of the best-known French modern designers of the day, including Le Corbusier.

His swiveling wall light Potence, designed in collaboration with Charlotte Perriand for the ‘Tropique’ house, inspired our elegant ‘Jib’ light. With its sparing use of materials and minimalist, industrial design, this wall lamp is made of circular steel tubing with steel mounting plate, all painted black. It measures 43” high x 82” projection and can be lamped with a 100w incandescent, medium base. It is UL listed for
a dry location.
