The original Potence wall light was designed by Jean Prouvé in the 1940s for his own home in Nancy, France. This compact counterpart to the original offers the same pure, functional design for but optimised for smaller spaces.
A true Vitra lighting classic. The essence of the Petite Potence design is its simplicity; a simple light bulb affixed to a long, pivoting steel bar, which is held by a steel wire. The swivel function allows you to direct light where needed. The choice of a Japanese red or deep black powder-coated finish stays true to the original hues chosen by Prouvé himself.
