Instantly recognizable by their long slender armatures and domed, ovoid shades, the best-known lamps and lighting fixtures of Serge Mouille have become emblems of the organic design of the mid-20th century. Along with Jean Prouvé, Mathieu Matégot and others, Mouille brought a fresh, modern aesthetic to metalwork, one of the most tradition-bound mediums in the decorative arts.
This sconce incorporates the “moule” or mussel shell shade, simple and natural in design. The shade is connected by a brass swivel and supported on a bent, rotating arm attached to the wall by a round mounting bracket.
An elegant twist of metal results in a lamp that illuminates upwards while creating playful shadows through the elongated metal with tapered ending. Totally unique, this lamp adds a distinctive touch in any setting.
The Mouille “œil” or Eye Sconce is named for the shape of the shade. This simple yet practical lamp is suitable for many applications due to its diminuative scale and shade that both tilts and swivels. Switch on mounting plate.
A partial cut allows the outer edge to bend revealing a sculpted ring encircling a central cone reflector to both diffuse and project light into the room. The result is reminiscent of a heavenly body.
Painted aluminum and steel with brass fixtures.
Curved and fluid, simple in design, the Conche Sconce embodies the same qualities as its name sake. The lamp rests on a small stem which allows the shade to tilt and move to the ideal position for each application.
