Description

During the 1940s, Jean Prouvé designed the Potence wall lamp for his own home in Nancy: a simple light bulb affixed to a long pivoting metal bar, which is supported by a steel wire. In 1947 Prouvé developed a cone-shaped lamp shade to match Potence in its different versions and sizes. Historical photos of Jean Prouvé’s house show that he experimented with different types of lamp shades, including designs by others.

Abat-Jour Conique is the first lampshade designed for Potence by Prouvé in 1947 and is intended for use with the Potence and Petite Potence lamps. It is simply fitted over the light bulb and can be removed again when needed.

Designer

Jean Prouvé, 1947

Jean Prouvé, who regarded himself as an engineer throughout his lifetime, was both the designer and manufacturer of his product ideas. His unique oeuvre, ranging from a letter opener to door and window fittings, from lighting and furniture to prefabricated houses and modular building systems, encompasses almost anything that is suited to industrial production and construction.

Brand

Vitra is much more than a brand but rather a staple of design. Established in 1950 in Birsfelden, Switzerland, the brand has left its mark on design history through its transcending path. Starting as a furniture producer, it paved its way to manufacturing and ultimately became the powerhouse design institution we see today.
