Serge Mouille designed his angular, insect-like lights as "a reaction to the Italian models that were beginning to invade the market in 1950," which he criticized for being "too complicated. " The Tripod Desk Lamp (1954) is a desktop or bedside interpretation of his original Three-Arm Lamp, and maintains the original's kinetic, sculptural aesthetic. All of his lighting solutions feature Mouille's hallmark signatures as a designer: the way the arms are joined to the diffusers, the washer and six-sided screw hardware, the form of the reflectors, and the refined lines of the steel tubing. Bulb (not included): 75W/E26. Made in France. Each lamp is stamped and numbered. A brass ball-in-socket joint makes the diffuser head easy to move. Shade is produced using the original molds, proportions, materials and techniques.
