Powder-coated tubular steel, beech wood

"Prouvé combines the soul of an engineer with that of an architect" -Le Corbusier

Jean Prouve created the first version of the Potence wall lamp in the 1940s for his own home in Nancy: a simple light bulb affixed to a long, pivoting steel bar, which is held by a steel wire. This functionalist, puristic design was soon produced in various sizes, with an added handle on larger models to facilitate the swivel movement. Petite Potence has similar proportions to the larger model Potence, while its compact dimensions are ideally suited to smaller interiors. The swing arm is 103 cm long, with a powder-coated finish in colors derived from the original hues used by Prouve. The cable is sheathed in a high-quality textile casing, and the LED bulb is dimmable. Thanks to its reductive aesthetic, Petite Potence is an ideal lighting choice for a wide variety of settings, from dining and living rooms to offices or cafes.

Petite Potence wall light features a powder-coated tubular steel body, oakwood handle and includes a cord dimmer.
