Serge Mouille Double Wall Light
The highly celebrated French designer Serge Mouille created this elegant black wall lamp in 1954.
An icon of modern lighting design, this lamp is defined by an angular, insect-like form and crisp organic shades. This design is also highly practical, each shade tilts and revolves on a brass fitting while the arms swing independently providing a very versatile lighting option.
Serge Mouille (1922-1988) received a master silversmith diploma from the Paris School of Applied Arts and in 1941 opened his own metalworking studio. In 1953 Jacques Adnet, one of France's most prominent architect / interior designers hired Mouille to design lighting fixtures, an art to which he devoted the rest of his life. Mouille worked to achieve a kinetic, sculptural aesthetic that evoked a sense of movement in space.
Due to the rarity of Serge Mouille lighting, his wife Gin Mouille decided to re-introduce a new licensed edition of the original 1950’s designs. The original precision craftsmanship is applied to this edition to ensure the integrity of the early work is maintained. This example is a new licensed edition.
Materials: Spun aluminium reflectors, brass structure
Finishes: Black structure with white painted reflectors
This is an authentic stamped edition produced in France under license. Unfortunately the accompanying purchase certificate was misplaced by original owner.
NOTE: We don't have the original black screws to attach to the wall. We have replaced them with a brass equivalent
