Considered by many to be a purist masterpiece, this stripped back, pivoting wall light was originally designed for La Maison Tropicale.

The concept for La Maison Tropicale was conceived by Jean Prouvé as an answer to the housing shortage facing French colonies of West Africa. Three prototypes were made from folded sheet steel and aluminium. For ease of transport, all the parts were flat, lightweight, and easily transported by plane, in an early example of pre-fabricated housing. Though the idea never achieved commercial success, La Maison Tropicale has come to be seen as an icon of Modernist architectural vision.

The long swing arm of the Potence wall light is made of powder-coated tubular steel with a beechwood handle. The included bulb is controlled by a cord dimmer.

  • H.50 x D.203 cm.
